How can any industrial/electro fan not love the exotic kaRIN of Collide, you are right that music is more of a sultry darkwave or industrial trip hop, but it is so good.......still you definitely need the SRC (snake river conspiracy) album.

You may want to try the Collide "distort" album of remixes, tends to be more upbeat or EBM in style. Also live album has three guitarists and real drummer for a more upbeat sound

I think you meant The Creatures, which is fronted by Siouxsie, and since female fronted electronic is being discussed, Siouxsie and Banshees, Switchblade Symphony and Sky Cries Mary come to mind

Someone else mentioned the group Jack off Jill, and many fans of Kidneythieves also like them.....but even better is the group that formed from the ashes of JOJ called Scarling very good stuff!

Also someone mentioned one of my very fav darkwave groups Switchblade Symphony, I just love this group especially the debut "serpentine gallery"
SS would appeal more to fans of Collide style sound. I am serously considering getting the Collide DVD now since the live band members have more more punch than the studio albums with just kaRIN and Statik..........also what a treat to watch the enchanting kaRIN perform

Just want to confirm that COLLIDE Live at El ray has more drive and uptempo sound than studio versions of songs mainly because of live drummer laying down a steady driving beat to support the swirling hypnotics of the siren kaRIN.

Still even live Collide is really a darkwave act and not industrial rock/metal

Since you're into Collide, have you listened to The Secret Meeting "Ultrashiver" - it's kaRIN, Statik and Dean Garcia. I like it.

I am aware of it but expensive used so I never picked it up......I have all Curve albums

Where are you located? [Ultrashiver] can be had for about $15 plus shipping, and picked up a copy of [Shiver X] just before Christmas when they were giving away a free CD with any music order (which they do quite often).

Anyway, I'll second or third Collide/The Secret Meeting. Not what I'd consider industrial, either, but kaRIN's voice...

Just for kicks, I'll also throw out: [Attak] and later KMFDM. Not strictly female-fronted, but Lucia provides vocals on about half the tracks.
The one-off MDFMK project is also worth a listen. Again, some vocals by Lucia.
I'd consider KGC as well (another KMFDM side project, with Sascha Konietzko, Lucia Cifarelli and--gee, this name is starting to sound familiar--Dean Garcia). Again, Lucia provides vocals on this one.
Drill might be worth checking out. I wouldn't call this band industrial, but they're not terribly dissimilar to Jack Off Jill, IMNSHO. Impossible album to find in stores, but I landed a copy off Amazon for $2 + shipping.
Finally, how about Genitorturers? Not everyone'se cup of tea, I'd imagine, but nevertheless... female fronted and somewhat industrial, particularly the remix album [Machine Love].

That's an awesome rec. "Dirty Bomb" is the closest I've ever heard to Curve. Lyrically, not as nuanced as Toni. However, Dean's murky soundscape remains intact and Lucia is game.

This thread reinvigorated my interest in the niche so I'll add Mankind is Obsolete as a recent discovery. "Rise" is solid, straight ahead self described industrial rock. They mix up song structure nicely and throw in death vocals in a couple spots; nice melodic stuff.

Fans of the listed bands, should check them out.

Have you gave a listen to Chiasm or The Azoic at all?  Someone mentioned Android Lust already, Maybe Stop Making Friends will suit you.  It's a band fronted by Pauley Perrette (Abbie from NCIS fame).  Bow Ever Down also comes to mind.  Enrapture (if you can still find their music online).

Lacuna Coil? they are gothic metal. 

 

I recently discovered a band, "Move on pulse" they have female vocals, and its electro metal...kind of. 

 

 

Edit: i didnt noticed it was an old topic, but anyways a nice genre. biggrin.gif

I don't think anyone has mentioned Aleixa yet.  Pretty good industrial rock/metal.
