Einstürzende Neubauten - Strategies Against Architecture, Vol. 1

Einstürzende Neubauten is one of the leading industrial artists out there. Strategies Against Architecture, Vol.1, is a compilation of their older works. A band that makes almost all of their own instruments, the music itself is very unique. Gritty, hard percussion and various dada-like instruments like drills and jackhammers make very driven and aggressive music. Anyone who has listen to the newer, much calmer EN may be surprised by this album, but it is still a masterpiece in its own right. All the songs are sung in German, so don't expect to sing along. Bands such as Tomahawk, The Locust, and The Blue Man Group cite Einstürzende Neubauten as an influence in their work. Enjoy!

This was pretty good, very aggressive sounding.

Ever listen to Delerium Cordia by Fantômas? It's worth a listen.

Delerium Cordia is really fun to listen to at 2 AM with the lights off through headphones.
