Typically, the vocals are distorted to sound hoarse, harsh and without tone. Artists also frequently use atonal melodic structures. ...more on Wikipedia about "Aggrotech"

Hardcore techno is a kind of techno music closely related to the Gabber style. It originated in the early- to mid-1990s in largely industrial or post-industrial cities ( Rotterdam, New York City, Newcastle, New South Wales) and simultaneously in commercial dance techno music looking for a harder sound; Mescalinum United's " We Have Arrived" (PCP 006, 1990) is considered by many to be the first hardcore track. Hardcore is typified by fast (160-300BPM) repetitive beats, often with a compressed kick-drum. It is considered a descendant of Industrial music and the more atonal, beat oriented early electronic music. Hardcore can be distinguished from its close relative Gabber on the following basis: gabber is primarily a Dutch phenomenon, which is generally "slower" (160-220BPM), and which incorporates synthesised melodies; hardcore is an international phenomenon, which is generally "faster" (160-300BPM), and has more emphasis on beat and sample. ...more on Wikipedia about "Hardcore techno"

Noise music is music that uses sounds regarded as unpleasant or painful under normal circumstances. "Noise" music is regarded by some as a contradiction in terms, because " noise" is generally defined as unwanted and undesigned or unintentional sound and music as the opposite (see Definition of music). However, "noise" in a more general sense refers to any extremely loud or discordant sound, and that these sounds are often the basis of noise music. Secondly, as famous noise musician Masami Akita said, "If by noise you mean uncomfortable sound, then pop music is noise to me." Noise music is not necessarily "noise" to the listeners, although it is certainly "noisy" in the more general sense of the term. ...more on Wikipedia about "Noise music"
Power noise (also known as powernoise, rhythmic noise, "noize" and occasionally as distorted beat music), a subgenre of industrial music, takes its inspiration from some of the more structured and distorted early industrial acts, such as Esplendor Geométrico. There are also certain hardcore techno and technoid influences. The term "power noise" was originally coined by Raoul Roucka in 1997, who records as Noisex, with the track "United (Power Noise Movement)". Typically, power noise is based upon a distorted kick drum from a drum machine such as a Roland TR-909, uses militaristic 4/4 beats, and is usually instrumental. Sometimes a melodic component is added, but this is almost always secondary to the rhythm. Power noise tracks are typically structured and danceable, but are known to be occasionally abstract. This genre is showcased at the annual Maschinenfest festival in Aachen, Germany, as well as at Infest in Bradford, UK. ...more on Wikipedia about "Power noise"
