Add Violence - EP by Nine Inch Nails on Apple Music

5 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

For the second installment of a planned series of three EPs, Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor eases up a bit on the harsh, experimental noisescapes of initial volley Not The Actual Events. "Less Than" indulges Reznor's gifts for New Wave keyboard swells and danceable beats, while "Not Anymore" thrashes about with a near classic-rock swagger and a shout-along chorus. In contrast, "This Isn't the Place" and "The Lovers" are subdued, almost ambient ballads that display Reznor’s range and maturity by luxuriating in tangible sonic beauty.

About Nine Inch Nails

With spellbinding beauty and ferocious intensity, Nine Inch Nails—the long-running project of multi-instrumentalist/producer/songwriter Trent Reznor—is one of the most visceral and elusive alternative acts to expand the boundaries of mainstream music. Forged in a crucible of abrasive noise and icy synthetic textures, 1989’s Pretty Hate Machine established a new vernacular for musical angst, coupling Reznor’s dark introspection with the mechanical grind of industrial rock—in a way that connected with a broad audience. That debut was followed by hugely successful releases in the ‘90s and ‘00s—including The Downward Spiral and The Fragile—featuring layered production and unrelentingly stormy themes. Reznor’s approach outside the studio has been similarly unbounded by convention; he’s upended relationships with labels in order to safeguard his creative freedom, taken long breaks to focus on scoring films, and formed creative alliances with the likes of Tori Amos and poet Saul Williams. One of his most lasting musical partnerships has been with Atticus Ross, who co-wrote the Oscar®-winning score for The Social Network and became the only other official member of Nine Inch Nails in 2016.
