Just like you can divide Industrial music proper into rhythmic and non-rhythmic, so too can you divide martial-industrial.
Namely, you got the atmospheric ambiental stuff thats akin to Noise and Dark Ambient, the kind of shit you listen to sitting down.
Then you got the put-on-yer-jackboots-and-march-into-Poland -type percussive stuff that's quite rhythmic and comparable to more dance-oriented I-muzak. It's the heavy mechanized percussion that stands out here and screams "Industrial Az Fukk!!"
Both styles also frequently feature inherently-industrial metal-bashing, particularly as one-shot snare-drums.
Tho truth be told there's also a lot of crossover between the two.
Apart from Laibach, who invented dis here shit, my personal fave is CMI veteran In Slaughter Natives, I recently got the box set, it fucking 0WN5!!!! GET IT NOW!!! :D
