Hard NRG is an electronic music genre similar in structure (with regards to sequencing & programming) to UK hard house. The main difference is in the musical/thematic content of each style.

Where UK Hard House has uplifting, playfully fun and tough elements, NRG is ominous, dark, aggressive and relentless with its distressed, menacing and gritty sounds on a slightly faster BPM (155 - 165 average) than UK Hard House (150 - 155 average).

Record labels which produce the genre include Vicious Circle, Flashpoint, Tidy Trax, Kaktai, Tonka Trax, Tinrib Digital, Noir Records and Noir Digital.
