Icon5 Dark Electro Examples?

Hello all. just asking for some examples (however many you want to list) of the Dark Electro genre.
my only reason being that idk what it is. I have Electro-Industrial + Aggrotech tunes, but idk if I even have Dark Electro songs + don't even know it, so I need help on how to tell if a song is considered "Dark Electro". just need some examples of it~

Re: Dark Electro Examples?

I need to know how to tell the difs btwn Electro-Industrial, Dark Electro, + Aggrotech, sound-wise and all...
it's for production, please. I'm making sample tunes of each (including other Industrial genres + other electronic music genres), but I'm not very clear on Dark Electro especially... is it supposed to sound slower + less aggressive (but still harsh) than Aggrotech? and how is it different than Electro-Industrial?

My tips:

make an electro-industrial song.

for the dark electro song, use the same song, strip out some layers, simplify the drums to a basic 4x4 dance pattern, replace all the kicks with overdriven 909s, throw some supersaw action over everything, Add a sample of somebody talking in German.

for the Aggrotech song, just do the dark electro song you just made, and use pitch shifted vox over it and scream a lot about being diseased.

Or use this handy chart I provided in your other thread:

Re: Dark Electro Examples?

Dark Electro sometimes sounds a lot like dark ambient but with maybe some electro/ebm bass synths or other stuff. Arcana Obscura is an example of this.

Other times it sounds more like Skinny Puppy/The Klinik like for instance fairly early Placebo Effect

To make things more confusing PainBastard is supposed to be Dark Electro but they often have kind of EBM sounds with Electro Industrial layering.

Or Tyske Ludder who literally does both EBM and Dark Electro.

I hope this is more informative than confusing, sorry if it's not.
