Sometimes when the desperate urge for industrial music comes, I usually reach out for the proved formula - Fear Factory, Samael, Rammstein and so forth, but where is the industrial metal today, beside those high profile artists? Are there any quality acts left today in this genre? By quality I mean the complete spacey/machinery feeling and atmosphere, not just senseless industrial rhythmic pumping. I remember this genre being quite popular in mid 90's, but where is it today (in a machine driven modernity)?

There are quite a few newer and very interesting industrial metal bands.
Here's Khadaver and this song right here is about all that Julian Assange and the Wikileaks ephemeris, some years ago:

There'a also Conflict, from Russia, which emulates a truly futuristic, mechanized style of industrial metal:

I'm absolutely clueless about industrial anything. But I stumbled on this group a while ago and think they're pretty cool. They're not on the archives, mind you, but the part at 0:53 in the following song sounds like something off Satyricon's Rebel Extravaganza: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOtUerSbfSs

Aside from Ministry and Fear Factory (Nine Inch Nails also but they're more so industrial rock), I haven't gotten into industrial metal that much. I know there are a lot of industrial metal bands listed on here but finding the time to go through some of them is something I haven't been able to do yet. I am also genuinely curious if there are any new yet prolific industrial artists nowadays worth checking out.

...and thank you for the recommendations. I barely know any industrial metal bands outside of the originators.

Northlane did one hell of a job taking industrial elements and mixing it with core. Not 'metal', per say, but sometimes has a very similar feeling to those early 00's industrial albums coming from The Kovenant.

Not really metal but the new Rob Zombie album has a bunch of good songs.

S.H.I., aka Struggling Harsh Immortals, from Japan just released an album on Relapse. I liked their 1st 7", but this album feels more like something to be used for gaming or commercial edits. I was disappointed. Nevertheless, it's new. Relapse also released a very solid industrial metal album from Realize last year(?). The Realize demo is even better than the album, but I like both a lot. There's also Black Magnet on 20 Buck Spin. I have a list I've compiled of lesser known industrial metal and punk, but most of it is old. If you'd like to see it, let me know.

As a hardcore doom metal fan, my recs will cover this specific field. All these projects mix cold indus rhythms to the crushing power and overall bleakness of Doom.

OK, so, gonna drop some recent names in here that might be good:

Industrial black metal:
Aborym (aside from the last two)
...and Oceans (last two before the change to Havoc Unit, who should also be considered)
Blacklodge
Borgne
Diabolicum
Mysticum
The Axis of Perdition
Blut Aus Nord (roughly 2000s/2010s)
Anaal Nathrakh

Industrial Death:
The Amenta
The Project Hate MCMXCIX
Total Devastation (rather unknown Finnish band, worth checking out)
z3r0c00l (very gimmicky/shitposty but actually not bad)
The Berzerker
Plague Bringer (not Plague Bearer)

Industrial Doom:
Misery Loves Co. (they surprise released an album a couple years ago after being broken up since the turn of the century)

Less extreme:
Sybreed
Dagoba
Harkla (has some death metal in there)
Nuclear Winter (if you ever wanted some metal from Zimbabwe)
Dawn of Ashes (all over the place, there's some black metal in some releases, some go full Aggrotech)
Die Krupps
Dimension F3H
Minority Sound
Noctiferia

Weird:
Master Boot Record (entirely synthesized but pretty interesting)
Shade Empire (industrial melodic black/death but also very synth-heavy)

I went with stuff that's been active in the last 10 or so years that isn't obvious (so no, didn't list Ministry or Fear Factory)

i think in terms of an entire subgenre barring a few bands spread across black/death metal its far less active than say black/death/thrash. On the other hand we see bands like Code Orange, Youth Code, and Jesus Piece taking elements of the music and bringing it to other fans of heavy music. But I'd say the music is way less active than say the nineties IMO with bands like NIN, Fear Factory, etc making it way more palatable for the mainstream

I don't see them mentioned too often but Bloodsoaked and Ill-Fated by Trollheim's Grott is one of the best industrial black metal albums I've ever heard. Aborym is probably the only band that's outdone that release at its admittedly small niche.

My fave industrial metal band is Red Harvest who for some reason rarely get mentioned. Supposedly still active, although have been silent for more than 10 years now. Not really industrial black or industrial death, although shares elements of both and can get quite extreme at times, although most of the time stays mid-paced and soaked with the cold, clinical atmosphere.

Also, is there any industrial metal that sounds like White Zombie or Skrew?

If "industrial" now means djent with silly keyboards, count me out.

Yeah, I listened to most of the recs in this thread and none are doing what I want.
I want something that sounds like Streetcleaner, or the first Fear Factory album... no new flair needed, I'm not interested in new. Just good old school industrial death.

HyBreed is one of my favourite albums of all time.

Realize is the most recent band in that style I can think of. Not many really doing the Godflesh sound anymore.

Doing industrial inspired music myself, and being very interested in that style (specially within black & death metal) I feel it has become very underground. Except the old big names, the newer acts seem to fail to make any impression on the scene. Either because the audience aren't really there, interested or perhaps the quailty of the acts aren't good enough to get the attention. I dunno, wish there was more acts breaking through though.
