The bond of the seemingly opposing electro and rock stances led to a modern, contemporary brutality that also took in the darkest recesses of goth to create an industrial implant. The start of this scene could be regarded as the meeting of a variety of sources that took in the momentum of the 1975 Lou Reed album Metal Machine Music and polygamous pop partners eventually created a new sonic species. The Metal Machine Music: Nine Inch Nails and the industrial Uprising DVD box set explores a unique story that was activated by influences such as the aforementioned Velvet Underground legend plus Cabaret Voltaire, Ministry, Skinny Puppy, David Bowie, Depeche Mode and Throbbing Gristle (with band leader Genesis P. Orridge featuring heavily within the confines of this release).
Nine Inch Nails creator Trent Rezno is a focussed fan, disillusioned deity, aural alchemist, street survivor and powerful performer. This NIN entity has stamped his authority on swathes of sonic disciples as well as being a major mover in music industry changes. Trent and his uncompromising stance has made NIN one of the most challenging, controversial, creative and consistent enterprises to have ventured forth from the American industrial rock scene.
It is clear that Trent appreciates what has gone on before his rise to fame. The sound of certain artists and his nod to great acts from across the pond is significant. The ravages of hedonistic excesses and record company strife have caused their problems but Reznor has been strong enough to wade through the woe and he is now in a far better place. An astute business character has developed and this allows for the subsequent releases and tours to evolve.Read more ›
