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.

No band better embodies the spirit of metal than Iraq’s Acrassicauda. They had their rehearsal studio bombed, their lives were threatened because of their music and they had to flee their country and become refugees.
