Afront's EBM & Industrial

Electronic body music (EBM) or Industrial Dance is a music genre that combines elements of industrial music and electronic dance music. It tends to attract goths and other PVC and leather-clad subversives, as well as electro and <a HREF="http://www.sharemyplaylists.com/afronts-futurepop/">futurepop</a> fans looking for a harder edge.

EBM grew out of earlier industrial music in the early 90s, spearheaded by bands like Front 242, Nitzer Ebb, and Front Line Assembly. As it evolved to include metal, rock, and other influences, the style spawned sub-genres such as electro-industrial, aggrotech, dark electro, dance metal, and (some would say) even goa and <a HREF="http://www.sharemyplaylists.com/afronts-in-a-trance/">psychedelic trance</a>.

This playlist features 44 of my favourite EBM and industrial tracks on Spotify. It's roughly chronological and features all the EBM heavyweights as well as many of the next-generation EBM bands particularly championed by Germany's Out of Line and SPV labels.
