Nine Inch Nails is an Industrial rock band that was formed in 1988 in Cleveland, Ohio, United States by Trent Reznor, the only constant member of the band. Reznor is generally credited for popularizing the genre known as "industrial rock" with both his releases and dark, theatrical music videos. As of 2016, the band also officially includes Reznor's longtime collaborator Atticus Ross as a second official member.

Born Michael Trent Reznor, he was raised by his maternal grandparents in Mercer, Pennsylvania, USA. Read more on Last.fm

Top 6: Under-appreciated Nine Inch Nails songs

Nine Inch Nails live at Reading Thrash Hits

If you’re a Nine Inch Nails fan, chances are you’re pretty damn excited for the UK leg of the band’s European tour that kicks off later this week. It’s been a long, long, long while since Trent Reznor and his gang of (un)merry men brought Nine Inch Nails’ brand of barrier-breaking, genre-mocking, soul-eating music to the UK, and they’re doing it this time in the biggest indoor venues we’ve got. Whatever you think of Reznor’s music, that’s a mighty damn impressive state of a affairs for a man who makes some of the darkest music on the planet.

While we could take a peek at what songs they’ve been playing around Europe, there’s something to be said about keeping yourself in the dark about a band’s setlist, which is why we asked fellow NIN fan Daniel Cairns to put together a little preview piece for us in the form of…

Reading Festival 2013 in review (+ some photos)

August 28th, 2013

reading leeds 2013 logo thrash hits

Reading Festival is a great festival. We go every year. We get drunk and we see as many bands as is feasibly, possibly doable. Occasionally, we remain lucid enough to actually take note of what’s going on around us and it’s at those moments that we made mental notes that we forget.

Anyhow, here are some things that happened that we’re going to talk about. Some of it is directly about bands but some of it might seem like constructive criticism that we should probably send straight to the promoter for him to ignore completely. We prefer it when you ignore us completely, so here goes.

Sunday Slaylist: The return of Nine Inch Nails

Trent Reznor Nine Inch Nails 2013 Thrash Hits

We’re not sure why so many people were surprised when Trent Reznor announced at the start of the week that Nine Inch Nails would be going back out on the road to play some shows over the next two years. Reznor has always said that Nine Inch Nails would return, and it’s been four long years since the band last played together – a return to the music that is Reznor down to his blood-and-bones seems natural at this point.

We’re a big fan of London nu-nu-grungers, Japanese Voyeurs. When they played our show in January, they covered Nine Inch Nails classic, ‘Closer’. They have also recorded it. Sadly, we reckon the Oscar-winning pile of awesome that is Trent Reznor won’t let JVs release it. Luckily, we’ve got our hands on it, so you can listen to it.

Slayer
No Slayer, no thrash. Right? Following their four classic ’80s albums, Slayer’s four ’90s albums received a varied reception as the band branched out in style. During this last decade, Slayer have succeeded in cementing their classic status thanks mainly to God Hates Us All and the return-to-form Christ Illusion. Dozens of metal’s biggest names have toured with Slayer since the turn of the century including In Flames, Children of Bodom, Biohazard, Cradle of Filth, Lamb of God, Marilyn Manson and Amon Amarth. Lombardo has been back behind the kit and we all worship Kerry King. The release of World Painted Blood sees Slayer head towards it’s 30th Anniversary…

So this was it: Nine Inch Nails’ final live hurrah in the United Kingdom. While the sun slowly set behind stage left, thousands of Reznor devotees held their breath and silently prayed that after twenty years of Nine Inch Nails, this final UK performance at Knebworth wasn’t about to mark their idol’s career as heading in that same dramatic direction.
