... this is actually just a trap... I'm waiting for Benny Strangeman to pop his head in, then I'm gonna hit it with a shoe. ... man this is gonna be sweet... ... ... So... What kind of gear does it take to make an industrial metal band. Ministry, (Later) Prong, Nine Inch Nails, etc. I'm really getting into Ministry a lot, and I hear they kick the arse live. I just bought Dark Side of the Spoon and it is afrigginmazing. But how is it done live. So much to do for a one time two piece band. I'm sure they got touring musicians, but what about gear. Aside from the standard guitar, bass, drum setup.
