I think machine metal is a cool term, but I dont have much of a problem with "Industrial metal" or "industrial rock" or even "dance industrial"either, though I see the point of differentiating it all;
Because even though it may havse industrial elements, its not purely industrial and it with industrial in the name tag it will inevitably be referred to a just industrial without the other word.
But this has allready happened, so while I understand the point of saying "this is industrial and this is Coldwave", I cant help but snicker a bit at it.
You can explain the history and what you mean by it to someone who likes kmfdm and Kovenant, but there isnt much to due from there, if they want to sek it out or just modify their vocabulary its fine, if not thats cool too. I think keeping the music alive is more important than what you call it.
and I try to help do that in the small ways i can, being an extremely poor motherfucker and all.
