Thanks to R-23 - that makes it clear now. But then - how is early Laibach than martial industrial??? It is just too confusing......
Laibach's darker, more sinister martial style lasted from the early to late 1980's, at which point they started to cross over into more electronic territory. But b4 that they pioneered what we now call martial-industrial - heavy mechanized marching rhythms punctuated by bombastic symphonic orchestration, with some metal-bashing thrown in for good measure.
Key Laibach MI tracks: Sredi Bojev, Dr˛ava,Panorama, Nova Akropola (there is a live version of that track I've been trying to find, it's the most evil-sounding of the lot), pretty much all of the Opus Dei album (with Geburt Einer Nation, Jägerspiel and Herz-Felde being the stand-out tracks)and their last true MI track Sympathy For The Devil (Time For A Change).
