The downward spiral by Nine Inch Nails( Recording )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nine Inch Nails: Trent Reznor (vocals, various instruments). Additional personnel: Danny Lohner, Adrian Belew (guitar); Flood (synthesizer, programming); Andy Kubiszewski, Chris Vrenna, Stephen Perkins (drums). Engineers: Sean Beavan, Chris Vrenna, Alan Moulder. Recorded at Le Pig, Beverly Hills, California; The Record Plant A&M Studios, Los Angeles, California. THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL was nominated for a 1995 Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Performance. "Hurt" was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Rock Song. Beginning with a barrage of gunshots and then exploding into a furious sonic onslaught, this record is like taking a hellride on the back of a bullet. Blistering recklessly toward its target on a wave of guitar, synthesizer, treated vocal, and beat Beat BEAT, THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL is like a virtual reality version of ATOMIZER (see Big Black) or even CONSUMER REVOLT (see also Cop Shoot Cop). It thrashes, it roars, it even retreats on occasion--pausing to reflect on its destruction (perhaps this bullet has a conscience). But it keeps pushing forward, toward its target, curdling into your ears and exploding inside your head. Dig the pain
