Genre Description

Industrial music is a bit of an extension from Musique Concrete, a Classical genre which uses found sounds and noise to make music. Industrial typically applies those techniques to rock. Often, Industrial tends to be binned with metal and/or electronica, and both of those genres have similarities to Industrial, though Industrial is typically harsher than both. In the 1990s, there was a bit of a mainstream popularity with pop-industrial music like Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails; though the fad has died down, there are still many of these bands that are enjoying popularity. Industrial music typically combines sampled noises with synthesizers and distorted guitars.

Industrial is a large neighborhood in central Bohan, Liberty City. It is bordered to the northeast by the Dukes Bay Bridge and the Northern Expressway (Little Bay); to the north by Leavenworth Avenue (Northern Gardens); to the northwest by Greene Avenue (Boulevard); to the west by Attica Avenue (Fortside); to the southwest by Windmill Street (Chase Point); and to the south by Dukes Bay.

Character

Industrial, as its name suggests, is primarily an industrial zone. Its the location of Bohan's (active) docking facilities and is home to a number of warehouses, auto repair shops, and other manufacturing structures. Residential areas exist within the neighborhoods, but they are few and far in-between.

Many of the neighborhood's buildings are run-down and desolate, leading many to think of the area as being "seedy", "slummy", "grimy", "poor", and so on. Many prostitutes can be found roaming the streets of Industrial when night hits, contributing to the negative image the neighborhood portrays. The area also features a partially completed roadbridge that crosses over Dukes Bay, intending to connect eastern Industrial and Little Bay to Chase Point.

Influences

Industrial's setting as a poor, waterside industrial neighborhood means that it obviously is Liberty City's equivalent of Port Morris in the Bronx, New York.

Places of interest

A Burger Shot establishment is located in the neighborhood at the intersection of Drill Street and Lompoc Avenue.

Transportation

The Liberty City Subway does not serve Industrial. The Windmill Street station is the closest to the neighborhood, located right at the Industrial-Chase Point border.
