I like both kinds of music Country and Western, could not resist the bad misquote.

Went with Alternative, Classical and Electronic (1SO you are not alone with that one), but, as with everyone else, my tastes range far and wide. I have spent time focused on most styles.

@heisenbergman I checked out Harvest by Opeth, I am not sure about the metal connection, but enjoyable.

@Martin I checked out Hamburger Lady by Throbbing Gristle, and it seemed more experimental than what I consider industrial, which I see as more Einsturzende Neubauten or Art of Noise. I was lucky enough to catch Einsturzende Neubauten a couple of weeks ago, great show.

Alternative - lots of different Australian pub bands, but damn this one is hard to define, lots of what I would call alternative falls under other categories as well. Ok bands like The Cruel Sea ( ) or TISM ( , fairly typical of their lyrics, they general took the piss out everyone, particularly themselves[/url]).

Classical - I particular like baroque Charpentier's , or Pachelbel's

Electronic - I tend much more to Trance in the electronic area, a nice pounding beat, or some mellow. on the lighter side, or on the harder side or a good remix

Well, Throbbing Gristle coined the term "industrial music", so..... maybe try or .

Neubauten is certainly industrial.  I would have never in a million years thought of calling AoN industrial.  Maybe a little bit in their sampling choices, but they're so silly (in a grand way, I'm a huge fan) and playful, the term doesn't seem at all appropriate.

Oh you listened to one of their few tracks that's purely acoustic :) They tend to do the heavy-soft-heavy dynamic by mixing up prog rock with death metal. You just chanced upon one of their ballads, although a really good one. Here's a better example of their sound:

Thanks, I had hoped that you both would be able to correct my knowledge, which you have.

Very Friendly is a raw track, but the industrial aspect is much more noticeable. Discipline while a little raw has much more polish to its sound.
Calling AoN industrial is a leftover from the 80's when my musical knowledge was minimal, and I heard that they were an industrial band and I remember seeing a clip of them with industrial instruments. It has just lingered waiting to catch me out. They are a fun band, Peter Gunn is a classic cover.

Bleak - has a strong metal edge, a little bit of death metal even. A very different track to Harvest.

Still on the Industrial topic: Are you industrial fans familiar with Coil? And what do you think of Horse Rotorvator?

Is the clip you saw?  My fave AoN song and maybe my favorite music video ever.

Oh yeah, Coil is an offshoot of Throbbing Gristle (as are Psychic TV and Chris & Cosey).  I haven't listened to Horse Rotorvator in many years, or any Coil now that I think about it.  Boy, I should get back into them.  I really liked Love's Secret Domain, as I recall.  And their "Tainted Love" cover.  Making a note to myself to break out some Coil in the near future

 Yes that is the clip. Definitely not industrial, but I see where I got confused. Thanks for that it was good to see and hear that one again.

Plus it is difficult to understand what belongs in what category.  What is Pink Floyd or Neil Young?
