like Nitzer Ebb, Skinny Puppy, Die Krupps etc...
No NIN, as they are shite.
Cabaret Voltaire (early), Foetus, Nocturnal Emissions, Current 93 (early), Nurse With Wound, Test Dept, Z'ev...
also Laibach, who are more along the lines of your original post
although I'd go for Front 242 first.
In Aeternum Vale
Broken English Club
Les Liaisons Dangereuses
who are objectively worse than NIN.
Off to a winning start.
Give Nurse With Wound and Nocturnal Emissions a go.
but yeah, Nitzer Ebb? I think they were one of those examples where a leading light becomes an footnote within a few years.
big dumb fun
that slagged off Trent Reznor for prancing around on stage like a "gutter-cum-street poet" and tarnished them forever.
the start of Industrial Rock
But yeah, doesn't get much better than those first two Nitzer Ebb albums. Always liked the long instrumental version of Join In the Chant.
so you might not like any of these suggestions (in addition to the aforementioned Front 242, Einstürzende Neubauten, )
Sheep on Drugs
Snog (possibly the closest of these to Skinny Puppy, etc.?)
in some godforsaken suburb of Lille back in 1988. Stood near the front, & when the first track kicked off I realised I was in a moshpit full of French & Belgian skinheads. I weighed about 9 stone at the time & took a right battering before I managed to get out. Great gig though.

Friend of mine's project Mollusk King (ex Content Nullity) is great: https://soundcloud.com/molluskking
And if you haven't checked out Throbbing Gristle's Second Annual Report or D.O.A. albums, then drop everything else and get going on that.
Quite shoegazey, but mostly referred to as industrial - lots of weird instruments, as detailed here: http://kitmonsters.com/bands/y/you-the-living
