Old School EBM

  • Old School EBM

    We all know about the first bands that started the genre but there are lots of other old school bands which are almost as important as the bands that started it all or at least worth listening to which bands do you recommend? For me Old school is from 1980 - 1990

    Numb and Placebo Effect go there, too. Suicide Commando started in the 80s (though I've never really dug them).

    Blind Vision, Umo Detic, CCCP, Snowy Red, Die Krupps, Ministry (Twitch), Revolting Cocks, and Cyberactif.

    Laibach, Cabaret Voltaire, and Skinny Puppy all have work you could call EBM.

    And I think Zero Defects, Armageddon Dildos, and And One all started in the 80s.

    Oh! And poesie noire!

    And the stuff: Dirty Harry, Airplane Crashers...

    These bands, which you are talking about, are in compilation albums EBM Club Classics, check out them. Placebo Effect, Mao Tse Tung Experience, Dance or Die, X Marks The Pedwalk, Snog etc.

  • Is it just me or is there really no mention of Paranoid here?

    Also: Fuze Box Machine, What's, Panic on The Titanic, Arbeid Adelt, and many more.

    Some of those aren't entirely from 80s, but maybe the beginning of 90s. Still the same feel to it.
