Celldweller's music is incredibly diverse and multifaceted, and is commonly described as a fusion of HeavyMetal, trance, drum and bass, {{dubstep}}, and {{industrial}}, with [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly elements taken from many other heavy music genres]]. The project has also been classified as NuMetal and gains its pride as one of the {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s of the genre. Celldweller's music has frequently appeared in television shows, movies, and video games, more prominently appearing in ''VideoGame/DeadRising2'', ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeed'', and the upcoming 3rd season of ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct''.

* LighterAndSofter: ''Wish Upon a Blackstar'' was nowhere near as aggressive as ''Celldweller'', consisting more of just straight {{Dubstep}} and ElectronicMusic than Klayton's typical IndustrialMetal style.
