Genghis Tron are a three-piece Extreme Metal band generally described as cybergrind, with many elements of other genres that are best described in the example section. They formed in 2004 and come from Poughkeepsie, New York, though they would later be based in Brooklyn and San Francisco, California. Between 2010 and 2020, Genghis Tron were on hiatus. They reformed in 2020 with a major lineup change. The third album Dream Weapon was released in March 2021 and saw the band ditch their signature cybergrind sound for a more electronic and psychedelic tinged style of Progressive Metal.

- Careful with That Axe: "City on a Hill" starts out with screaming after the slow ambient fade-out of "I Won't Come Back Alive".
- Epic Rocking: "Relief" (10:47 minutes). "Recursion" and "I Won't Come Back Alive" could be considered parts of one song, together they're about 8:42 minutes.
- Dream Weapon overall emphasizes longer songs like "Ritual Circle" and "Great Mother".
- Genre Roulette: Ambient (also ambient techno and dark ambient), dance, doom metal (including sludge metal), grindcore, hardcore techno, progressive metal, mathcore and math metal.
- Harsh Vocals: On the pre-reunion stuff.
- Meaningful Name: Mookie Singerman.
- Metal Scream: Mainly on the pre-reunion material.
- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: Generally 10. "The Whips Blow Back" is about 5, and the purely electronic stuff they do can't be measured on the scale. Dream Weapon drops this down to a 6 as it contains no screaming or blast beats but retains the heavy guitar riffs.
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: See Genre Roulette above.
- Progressive Metal: Their comeback album Dream Weapon displays this sound.
- Subdued Section: "Endless Teeth" has an ambient techno break in what is otherwise a math/grindcore-sounding cut. Demonstrated in this music video here.
