List Criteria: Upvote your favorite industrial metal bands

Industrial music, in particular industrial metal bands have some of the most loyal fans of any genre. The best industrial metal bands can sell out arenas and stadiums, and even headline mainstream metal music festivals across the globe. All of the top industrial bands have the rare ability to blend thrash metal with industrial dance music and hardcore punk rock to create a sound that's both intoxicating as it danceable. It's hard to think of genres so obscure as these working, but the best industrial metal bands have the ability to do exactly that.

This list of industrial metal bands includes bands from all over, so international industrial metal bands should be included on here. So, what are the best industrial metal bands? For starters, any list of good industrial metal bands must have Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails on it. These two groups are among the top industrial metal artists and the most influential industrial metal artists. There are plenty of bands on here that you should have heard of, especially if you're an industrial metal fan. 

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best industrial metal bands. If you notice that one of your favorite industrial bands isn't on this list, feel free to add them. 
This list answers the questions "who are the best industrial metal bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest industrial metal musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular industrial metal bands that you might've heard of. (274 items)
