Default Ambient, industrial, noise, etc...

I've recently started listening to this kind of music, specifically Atrium Carceri, Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Throbbing Gristle, and Lustmord.

I've never listened to music like this before. I mean...I guess the real reason I've started this thread is because of two things; one, I'm curious what other bands are out there like this, and two...why in the world is this music so appealing to me? I find it so interesting. I don't know why I like it.

I listen a decent amount of this kind of stuff and also record music in a similar vein. A couple recommendations that spring to mind are Cabaret Voltaire (a contemporary of Throbbing Gristle), Main, and Final.

I started getting into this music a few months ago. I still think I'm more deeply invested in 1980s post-punk, but there's a lot of excellent industrial acts out there, many of which get swept under the rug:

Einsturzende Neubauten
23 Skiddoo
Coil
Swans
Savage Republic
Sun City Girls (more psych-folk than anything else but still crazy)
Massacre
The Legendary Pink Dots

I really recommend John Balance (Coil) and his posthumous album The Ape of Naples. Migrated significantly away from the industrial cacophony of Horse Rotorvator and most of it is ambient electronica but it's very well done at that, his best in a long long time.

EDIT: BAH! I totally forgot about Blixa Bargeld, hands-down my favorite industrial songwriter ever. Zeichnungen des Patienten O.T. is an absolute masterpiece and it's completely accessible. Definitely recommended.

Well I know and love Ambient.. but I don't know much about the other two. Are you interested in each of the genres you mentioned or a more a mixture of all three? I'd only be helpful in the Ambient department

I think he means it in the sense of latter-day industrial music. Bands like Current 93, who went through so many evolutions that they gradually migrated further and further away from industrial music, from the abrasive and atonal in Dogs Blood Rising to something more neo-folksy like Thunder Perfect Mind and eventually onto the ambience of Black Ships Ate the Sky.

There's actually quite a few bands that did this. Coil & Nurse with Wound are up there as well.

Check out Contagious Orgasm, if you can find anything. Crazy industrial ambient field recording stuff out of Japan, and he has tons of albums to get into. Also the projects with Zyrtax, Telepherique and Government Alpha are amazing!

Go ahead and post some ambient recommendations (for my benefit). I've always wanted to get into this genre but didn't know where to start!

Yeah this is basically what I'm talking about. Also, thanks for the recommendations. Is there a website where I can find this stuff? It's pretty hard to find.

I just use last.fm and allmusic, between the two I can figure out which albums to pay attention to. I'm sure there's more acts I forgot to list (Death in June is one of them), look and skim through there and try to get something together. Good to see a fellow appreciator.

I'm sure I can put a compilation up eventually for you.
