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. This term is used quite loosely, describing everything from industrial rock bands sampling metal riffs (such as The Young Gods) 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.
