First, if you don’t have the new Nitzer Ebb album, get it immediately. It came out in 2010. The regular version is called ICP, the version with bonuses is called Industrial Complex. I recommend the one with bonuses, because “On the Road” is a really fun song. I think Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is the standout song on the album, it’s very energetic.
If you haven’t tried Front 242, try Front 242. For something recent, try the Still and Raw ep. This came out just before Pulse, which is good, but I think it wanders a bit too much into Trance territory.
Next try EBM - “Electric Body Music.” I recommend VNV Nation and Assemblage 23.
Venturing into something a little different, you could listen to samples of Diorama. Start with A Different Life, especially the songs Screenface, Synthesize Me, and Protected World. I adore Diorama, but advise caution. They’re one of those bands where every album seems different than the others. They’re first album is much more melodic, and I think it has a very 80s quality.
Now I’ll tell you where you can get some free, legal downloads to try some of these bands out. www.guvera.com is an advertising driven website. It’s one of those good idea / shaky execution sort of things. I don’t know if they’ll hit it big or disappear tomorrow. When you sign up, fill out a full profile. When I signed up that got me 10 song downloads. Once a month the give everyone some more downloads, usually between 6 and 10. From memory, they have Still and Raw by Front 242, ICP by Nitzer Ebb, and some stuff by VNV Nation and Assemblage 23.
