There are some pretty loose genre definitions out there, and one of the loosest would be Industrial Metal. Why? Because of people like Peter Tagtgren. Over the years Tagtgren took the box his music with PAIN was placed in and expanded the sides, rounding them out, and taking the music to new heights never thought to be possible. In fact, while someone like Marilyn Manson is running around getting all the credit for ground breaking music Peter Tagtgren was making and producing the sounds Manson based his career on.
