Below is a work written by Tomasz Łesak, a fan of industrial rock music. It was his final English exam at the chair of Netherland Philology in Wroclaw, Poland. Enjoy! :)
[Fabryka] Where does industrial music come from?
The differences between industrial and industrial rock
Industrial rock should be kept separate from industrial, the core genre. The former appeared much later, and was only slightly inspired by industrial. It can be said that IR was created by adding insdustrial to raw, aggressive guitar music. IR is an easier listening and it's got more guitars, being less avantgarde and electronic at the same time. It usually has some vocals, while original industrial was based on sounds and infrequent comments. We shall focus on this a bit later.
