Pigface is an industrial rock supergroup formed in 1990 by Martin Atkins and Bill Rieflin. Both had drummed with Ministry, and were pleased with the notion of a rock music band with two drummers, rather than the usual one.
Formed in 1991 by the frontman, guitarist, keyboardist, percusssionist, and vocalist Steven Seibold, Hate Dept. combines a mixture of hard rock, punk, industrial, and dance music with venomous, angry lyrics.
Christ Analogue was devised in 1995 by programmer/vocalist Wade Alin. The 1996 release of their debut album, “The Texture ov Despise,” earned the band instant respect and established them as a force in the electronic/industrial music scene.
The Damage Manual is an industrial supergroup that originally formed in 2000. It featured Martin Atkins on drums and loops, Chris Connelly on vocals, Geordie Walker on guitar and Jah Wobble on bass. Originally stemming from discussions between Atkins and Wobble, Walker was brought aboard when Wobble expressed interest in working with him.
In his past lives, PIG was Lord Raymond Watts, known variously as Raymond Scaballero in Foetus, an icy addition to Psychic TV, a savage PA destroyer in Einstürzende Neubauten, and a founding catalyst of KMFDM. Watts began his arrest record in London where he was most likely pissed off about something and doing sound manipulations, loops and live sound for Psychic TV.
Chris Connelly is a Scottish musician who became famous for his industrial music work of the late 1980s and early 1990s, particularly his involvement with the Revolting Cocks, Ministry, The damage Manual and Murder Inc.

ohGr is a band formed by Nivek Ogre, of Skinny Puppy, and musician/engineer Mark Walk. Although the pedigree of the group's members might suggest otherwise, ohGr is not strictly an industrial group, as it draws from elements of synth-pop/electro-pop, metal, and even hip hop.
