JUST ADD VIOLENCE!
Is this actually an new song.. Sounds so damn similar to past work (not a good thing at all IMO).
"Welcome Oblivion" line, analog glitch art and bleeps/bloops could mean that is a track from How To Destroy Angels era, redone for NIN sound and Trent's vocals.
Unfortunately sounds like a Hesitation Marks b-side. Step down from Not the Actual Events
Really nice song, great hook, but I expect more after Not The Actual Events. This is a regression to sounds explored and beaten to death already on Year Zero and Hesitation Marks. I thought he was headed in a different direction
Eh it's good, but seems like a very safe by the numbers NIN track.
Forgettable, but not at all bad
Still hyped since this will probably be the weak point, rather than any sort of highlight.
Digging: Baths - Romaplasm
yo this is lit af
Digging: Converge - The Dusk in Us
I dig it
I'd rather take safe but serviceable than shitty attempts to go radio pop (Muse, Coldplay, Linkin Park).
Meh, I'm fine listening fear factory, I start feeling the same annoyance that tool makes me feel.
i rarely loved a song this much on first listen tbh
I feel Hesistation Marks vibe here. Like it.
This is very NIN, this is good
Sounds good to me
Digging: Beastmilk - Climax
This is the first thing I've heard out of NIN I actually dug in like forever.
Absolutely love it, and it's growing with each listen. Definitely a "safe" song -- it would be right at home with pretty much all of their post-Fragile singles -- but the hooks are huge and the song builds so well.
Sadly didn't care at all for the last NIN release and care even less for this single, I think the fact that I fell in love with them while going through an emo phase in high school and now associate their music with that phase means I've ruined them for myself forever
Yo is this that new trailer from the new Jumanji movie??
In all seriousness, yeah it's safe but it's a damn good safe song.
Hey anyone catch them on the new Twin Peaks? HOLY SHIT that was a fucking great live show.
"The Nine Inch Nails" lol
It's a "safe" song but it's good at what it does
Safe songs should all sound this good tbh.
The performance was incredible, and it fit the series perfectly. The fact that it was only "icing on the cake" for what would wind up being one of my favorite episodes of any tv show, ever, just blows my mind.
love the classic guitar wall/tambourine/trent harmonies at the end of that track. stoked.
Honestly, I wanted to like this but it sounds like it was left off Year Zero/Hesitation Marks. It's just a mishmash of various NIN themes and progressions. Not The Actual Events had better stuff. I guess we'll see if the EP has better stuff, too. I thought The Idea Of Me was way better than Burning Bright, actually one of the better new NIN songs, so I still have plenty of hope there will be better.

You are not wrong sir. I ended up rewatching it twice after my first viewing.
This is the strongest single he's released since "The Hand That Feeds".
