just more cookiecutter bullshit. if you have an Access Virus, some corn syrup and food coloring, and a lack of creativity, you can do it too!
oh and dont forget the tube distortion for your oontz oontz oontz. thats what makes it scary!
i think too many people confuse industrial music with dance music. not to say that you can't/shouldn't dance to industrial, or even that i'm exempt from the club scene - drinking and dancing the night away, but there is a distinction here. early industrial bands like tg and puppy were satirizing pop music in the 70's and 80's and the new breed of "industrial" acts seem to embrace pop as a method of selling albums. i think trent reznor had a hand in making these people believe that they can get rich by combining pop sensibility with dark brooding synth lines and distorted drums. and for the most part, this seems to be true. teen angst sells.
now where's that damn arpeggio button?
