    Advise me dear urbans. Looking for artists / tracks.

    Techno. So I used to listen to techno taped off the radio, the odd mix tape 20 odd years ago. I don't know WTF is going on now and am bored with the few tracks I have. I'm on Apple Music and listened to a couple of compilations, classic techno... They were utter kack. For a start, they had singing and that. The so called acid techno wasn't really doing it for me.

    I want stuff like this. That squelchy filter stuff. (No fucking singing.)

    Industrial. Well, more the metal end I spose. Chunky riffage, music to slaughter zombies too / yompp along on a treadmill. I quite like Fear Factory, yes. Something like the classic:

    Techno wise, I don't know if this will be up your street, but I rate Perc & Truss

    My mate's just done this album, which ticks your boxes I think:

    You should check out Powell's Diagonal Records who release a whole load of industrial slanted techno.

    Hessle Audio on Rinse fm might be worth a listen.

    If you want techno that's a bit like Godflesh then the obvious place to start is JK Flesh - Justin Broadrick's Industrial Techno-ish stuff. I like his first album, Posthuman, more then the most recent one but it's all worth a go.

    I'd also recommend the recent FACT mix by Pan Daijing: FACT mix 581: Pan Daijing. Bit more going on than your average set of noisy techno bangers (not that I don't like that too.)

    And Ancient Methods. Pretty much any of his mixes.

    The new Bug / Earth album might be just the thing too.

    (actually that's quite old - the new one doesn't sound so heavy)

    Actually there's loads of good techno-ish stuff in Bristol ATM. Try Vessel from the Young Echo crew:

    Have a dig through the Opal Tapes catalogue - this from Domenico Crisci is great

    Front 242
    Lard (the last temptation of Reid)
    Gary Numan

    Is there any point in listing the 5 most famous industrial bands in the world as recommendations for someone who listens to Godflesh?

    Edit: fuck it, none of the playlist I posted worked.

    Anyway, it was links to remixes of tracks from Morbid Angel's unwise 2011 release Illud Divinum Insanus. The album itself is laughable, but some of the remixes use the bits well. It's not new, but it's pretty heavy for industrial / techno / dubstep / whetever else is there.

    I'll find a couple of links that do work, and post them

    On the other hand, there's the version of Too Extreme that's on the actual album. Cheesy as hell but it pushes the right musical buttons :D
    [[watch out for strobing, flashing and visual trouble from the very start]]

    Stil going through these. Some great stuff here thanks. killer b I bought your mate's album. :cool:

    Yep, NIN, Ministry I like. Gary Numan is a favourite, not the middle years obviously. The Hybrid album hits the mark. No needs bad synth saxaphones...

    Also, if you want stuff like Pump Panel (of which I wholeheartedly approve) then Planet of Drums is another series of 12"s by the same guys. Harder and more tribal.

    Here's a sample:

    Couldn't see a general techno thread so I'll drop this one from last year in here.

    this polish lass is my new/current superhero of techno, makes her own gear,
    combines a kind of academic streak with an obvious love for gabber :D
    loads of other good stuff on New York Haunted, and Opal tapes as mentioned previously

    last year was one where I couldn't be doing with techno much tbh
    (it comes and goes from time to time, this year is looking much more techno friendly in my world)
    but this Blawan album was probably the best thing I did listen to . . .

    As for Industrial/metal try The Body they are prolific and constant collaborators, I think there were four albums last year,
    but they're still constantly amazing - inventive, utterly bleak and generally free of the grating machismo that comes with a lot of this kind of stuff
