Industrial metal is a musical genre that draws elements from industrial music and heavy metal. Industrial metal music is usually centered around repetitive metal guitar riffs, synthesizer/sequencer lines, sampling and distorted vocals[1]. This term is used quite loosely, describing everything from industrial rock bands sampling metal riffs (such as The Young Gods[citation needed]) to heavy metal groups augmented with sequencers and drum machines. Industrial metal encompasses industrial subgenres such as aggro-industrial and coldwave (see List of post-industrial music genres and related fusion genres) and often overlaps some elements of nu-metal and post-punk.

Examples of industrial metal bands include Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Rammstein, Godflesh, Beck, Marilyn Manson, Fear Factory and KMDFM.
