Well, some bands are started with clear intentions in mind, and some evolve naturally out of the experiences and styles of the people involved. Gravitar has been a combination of the two. Harold Richardson, our first guitar player, had the stated goal of Gravitar being "as psychedelic as possible". Though vauge, this has actual been a fairly good starting point, as it's allowed us to continue explore our sound and approach, while still staying consistent to our earlier work. In a practical sense, our intention was to combine noise and rock, and we continue to do so.
The word industrial seems to have all sorts of specific genre implications that I don't think fit with us. That aside, it was the instrumentation that all of us were familiar with. This was the kind of music we wanted to make, so... There wasn't much concious thought given to that issue. It just seemed natural. In any case, though the instrumentation you choose will cause you to approach your music in certain ways, I don't think it's all that important, compared to the end results.
