Cyber metal is a subgenre of industrial metal music which incorporates numerous elements found predominantly in EBM and Aggrotech, including the use of more melodic and less repetitive riffs, in opposition to mostly metallic and mechanical sound of industrial music. First coined by industrial metal group Fear Factory in 1990, the vocals of cyber metal are harsh, ranging from singing techniques typical for aggrotech to black metal shrieks and death metal growls. Guitar melodies are played in a similar way to melodic death metal, and keyboards specific to symphonic black metal are frequent as well. Some bands like Deathstars, fascinated by the symbolism of totalitarianism, using it as part of the image also incorporated same aesthetic to their sound.
