M.A.N is an industrial metal band from Sweden, notable for their adoption of the "full scale quarter tone system":
"M.A.N is very proud to declare to be the very first metal band ever to have incorporated what we call the "Full Scale Quarter Tone System" into our music - and metal music genre on the whole, resulting in the upcoming album "Massive, Audio, Nerve" by M.A.N. Full Scale Quarter Tone Systems means that there are 24 quarter tones, instead of 12 "ordinary" semi tones, within reach of an octave This has led to new kinds of expressions and possibilities that have never been heard before, especially when this concept -cultivated and formed by M.A.N- is featured by more than just a solistic issue in order of solo instrumentalist matter or a solo part, but covered by the string instrument section in whole songs, with state of equilibrium with the ordinary semi tone system….."
