Alright, I've been listening to some goth/industrial music and I've been really into it lately. I was wondering if any of you could refer some good bands. Perferably in either the goth, industrial, or electrocia genre. I'm just trying to add some new music to my collection. I'm sort of getting sick of the same 50 CDs all the time.
Currently I've been listening to a lot of: The Cure, Ministry, and Nine Inch Nails. Just trying to expand a bit.
Electronica? try any electronic (ie techno, trance) from Japan or Germany - UK stuff is not bad, but gets a bit Dancey, which can be o.k. - House music is actually making a comeback... its all in such a mess because most of computer made stuff is really easy to make and share by intenet, and they are all being done with the same production methods, so what we end up with is artists calling these things a million different things. the commercial genre to search is really probably Dance, so it's really hard to find what you need or want to experience! the old MP3.com was absolutely brilliant - but that was canned, recently reopened as something different. I like the Hardcore called Gabber (aka Gabba) and psytrance, or GOA - they are fast and noisey and i have heard some of the strangest musical soundscapes presented in these styles. Also You can find a free program online called ReNoise, which you can make your own music with - its tricky, but amazingly versatile. I spend a good time on holidays trying to compose. Music is brilliant - it can remind you of your dreams & aspirations and is a suprisingly easy way to change ones moods & attitudes.

You should check out Ministry pre-1998 and Front Line Assembly. Pigface is pretty cool. And, if you're looking for something a bit different then give a listen to MC 900 foot Jesus. I'm not sure how easy the last 2 are to find, however.

You should pick up Ministry's "Twitch", "The Land of Rape and Honey" and "A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste" in that order. In my humble opinion, Ministry lost a lot of it's raw punch after "A Mind...". Alien Jourgensen went off into the deep end suffering from drug abuse around the mid 90s...his writing style and the music he wrote changed dramatically afterward. Those early cds I mentioned were packed full of the hard industrial edge that helped Ministry bring industrial music to the masses. And, if you can find it, then I'd also suggest buying Ministry's "In case you didn't feel like showing up" - it's a live set from their 89/90 tour. One word - AWESOME!
