Nin Nails

Profilo:
Industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails (abbreviated as NIN and stylized as NIИ) was formed in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio. Reznor has served as the main producer, singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, and sole member of Nine Inch Nails for 28 years. This changed in December 2016 when Atticus Ross officially became the second member of the band. Nine Inch Nails straddles a wide range of many styles of rock music and other genres that require an electronic sound, which can often cause drastic changes in sound from album to album. However NIN albums in general have many identifiable characteristics in common, such as recurring leitmotifs, chromatic melodies, dissonance, terraced dynamics and common lyrical themes. Nine Inch Nails is most famously known for the melding of industrial elements with pop sensibilities in their first albums. This move was considered instrumental in bringing the industrial genre as a whole into the mainstream, although genre purists and Trent Reznor alike have refused to identify NIN as an industrial band.

Re: Reissues and new EP vinyl

Hmmmm "spring 2017" is almost over. Reissues and new EP announced December 2016 and up for sale with immediate hi-res downloads... Honestly I would be happier to pay only for the hi res digital and buy the vinyl when they are actually available...at a record store. Now almost at a 6 month wait period? Ridiculous.

How many here threw down (a lot of) money to nin.com since that's the only outlet to purchase these vinyl reissues?

Trent Reznor aka Nine Inch Nails a quintessential industrial rock artist or pathetic poster boy for alternative music in the 90's? The end of 2009 and it turned out that he was to be neither of them. Instead, what we are left with at the end of it all, as Nine Inch Nails "waved goodbye" in 2009, was an artist with scope, savy (business and otherwise) and a man with a huge flourishing talent that, in my opinion, still hasn't peaked. After 2005 and after With Teeth, a newly re-energised Trent Reznor emerged, released a final studio album, Year Zero, with his then Rec Co. Interscope, and set off on a path of reinventing the way an artist could and should work. He essentially fired his record company, set up his own deal, The Null Corporation, and released the massively popular instrumental album Ghosts and in doing so roped every single fan he gathered up over the years and brought them into his world, all the while remaining a mystery. No tabloid baiting bullshit, no hype and most importantly no vacuous pseudo posturing, just music no strings attached and literally so as he released his last studio album The Slip completely for free.

Whether you like Nine Inch Nails and Trent Reznor or you don't, the fact remains that he has dared to go where very few artists of his league and bigger have not dared to go, to lose the shackles of a secure deal and a guaranteed pay check of a major record company. Whether he is a genius or not is not important, whether his music is massively popular or not is not important, whether he produces anymore music heading into the next decade or doesn't is not important. What is important is that he had a vision, he knew he had the talent and that he had the balls to start tearing down the status quo of the current music business model and to start building his own. If you're a musician or you're not, or you're inspired by Trent Reznor's music or you're not, the one thing, I think we can all find inspiration in, is the fact that one man did it on his own and as cheesy as this sounds if he could so can the rest of us. ART IS, RESISTANCE.

Nine Inch Nails is the reason I listen to the music I do, whether because of a remix credit or liner note, collaboration, Nothing Records label-mates, supporting acts, etc., I can trace everything back to Trent Reznor somehow or another, sometimes intentionally other times not. From my first introduction listening to Broken and then Pretty Hate Machine, to the hook-line-and-sinker Industrial Rock played-out "Closer", to the dense double-disc The Fragile, to whatever direction Trent takes his music next, I don't think anyone can deny the musical innovation, integrity, and respect due to Trent.

I personally think that The Downward Spiral is an absolute masterpiece. Pretty Hate Machine is a great early industrial rock near-synth pop album, Broken is just full of metal angst, The Fragile is a terse and complicated listening adventure, and With Teeth is almost a visitation to earlier influences with new perspectives, I still feel TDS is the strongest and tighest audio journey with perfect industrial anthems and hymns.

I think once musicians drop the drugs and go clean their music somehow lacks he same punch as it did prior, and I feel With Teeth illustrates that. But I'd rather have a living Reznor with more albums (assumably 1-2 per decade) than bother having to just collect re-releases. And I don't think at all Reznor is finished, I think he'll prove to be a next-generation David Bowie of industrial rock, on the fringe but to be cited endlessly as an influence. And I hope that's how it plays out.

I would ask Reznor to cut back on all the live video releases, as great as the live stuff works it looks much better in person than staring casually at it in my living room full of interruptions. And aside from continued releases from NIN, I'd love to see more collaborative involvement and maybe someday all the never-to-be-released stuff to surface somehow (like Tapeworm...).
