Gary Numan

Starting out as a card-carrying member of the then-burgeoning new wave community, Gary Numan eventually metamorphosed into one of the primary exponents of industrial-informed Gothic electronica, churning out darkly themed, coldly forbidding works whose influence are audible in contemporary records by the likes of Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM and Skinny Puppy. One of Numan's more distinguished albums is 1998's theatrically paranoid anti-religious treatise "Exile". Check out the remarkable, metallic "Dark" here, knowingly set to a montage of images from the Second World War.
