Nine Inch Nails is back! Trent Reznor’s ‘band’ (he is the only official member) has been making industrial rock for 25 years now, and each release has had something of interest. Most reknowned for their work in the 1990s such as ‘Pretty Hate Machine’ and ‘Downward Spiral’, Reznor also created the music and effects for the classic video game Quake, which earned them the honor of having their logo emblazoned on ammo crates in that and later entries of the franchise.

Back in 2008 they released Ghosts I–IV and The Slip, both as free downloads before going up for standard purchase – which led many to pay for the music after freely downloading. And while it was not Reznor’s best stuff, there were definitely some cool moments.

NIN has announced that they are releasing their new album, called Hesitation Marks, on September 3rd. And to go along with the announcement they have released the first song – Come Back Haunted.

In my opinion it is the best stuff from Nine Inch Nails since the 90s, and brings Reznor’s classic industrial rock sensibilities into the current retro-techno production values. Layering up to 60 elements at times to create the densely packed yet clean sounds, Come Back Haunted is a sonic explosion definitely worth checking out!
