«industrial death metal» - best artists
Industrial metal’s popularity led a number of successful thrash metal groups, including Megadeth, Sepultura, and Anthrax, to request remixes by “industrial” artists. Some musicians emerging from the death metal scene, such as Fear Factory, Nailbomb, and Meathook Seed, also began to experiment with industrial. Fear Factory, from Los Angeles, were initially influenced by the Earache roster (namely Godflesh, Napalm Death and Bolt Thrower. Sepultura singer Max Cavalera’s Nailbomb, a collaboration with Alex Newport, also practiced a combination of extreme metal and industrial production techniques. A lesser-known example of industrial death metal is Meathook Seed, made up of members of Napalm Death and the Florida death metal group Obituary. An industrial music fan, Obituary guitarist Trevor Peres suggested drum machines for The End Complete, Obituary’s most successful album.The other band members’ refusal led him to form Meathook Seed.
