Thanks again everyone! Appreciation all around!
@bigtroll - I am a huge Ministry fan (my 1st concert). There is definitely some thematic overlap with their industrial sounds and a biomechanical future worldscape.
@uncommonman -- more great industrial that will have its place (here and in my own listening). Hadn't heard of them before. thanks!
I need to be careful with bands like Ministry, Perfect Circle, and Peace Love & Pitbulls that I don't bleed over into my World of Darkness, goth-flavor, dark hidden underworld style playlists but these are good picks. 🙂
@riotamot - more great finds with The Knife!
@EricaOdd - nice 80s throwback finds with Art of Noise. Great thing about the 80s vibe, it can keep coming back over and over again, so why not also in the far future. \m/
@EricfromNJ -- Anything by the Dead Kennedys is punk gold!
Not quite punk in cyberbpunk, but I want to share back some of my additions:
The cybertechno side of cyberpunk:
Extra Terra's Convergence 2045 album (on Spotify and YouTube)
Kenji Kawai - Utai IV Reawakening (Steve Aoki Remix) which has a strong Ghost in the Shell inspiration
Anything by Head Splitter, many albums on Spotify,, but here is a YouTube flavor:
Imagining a reskin of Zydrate Anatomy from Repo! The Genetic Opera from bioware to cyberware (awesome movie if you haven't seen it).
Maybe a bit too WWII, but it has that fight back & resistance culture that punk shares.
Bloodywood - Expect a Riot really is a great culture sound mashup & hits the resistance culture hard! It's like an Indian metal version of Rage Against the Machine.
@uncommonman thanks to your suggestion to explore punk outside of a US/UK context and sharing Swedish punk, I somehow fell into a rabbit hole of Chinese punk music & culture, like this article on Punk in Wuhan. So interesting! Totally makes sense for anti-establishment Chinese in the face of the state government.
