In the golden era of industrial music, two legends of the genre teamed up to remix a set of tracks from Nine Inch Nails' iconic early releases, Broken and The Downward Spiral. Back then, NIN's Trent Reznor frequently collaborated with members of the pioneering UK group Coil – including John Balance, Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson and Danny Hyde – and Reznor even worked behind the camera with Christopherson (shown below, on left) for the controversial mock-snuff-porn video known by fans simply as “The Broken Movie,” which is still horrifying unprepared viewers today.
Christopherson and Balance have since departed this world, but their creative touch lives on in this collection of remixes from Cold Spring Records. While the tracks were never officially released, many were discovered and compiled by NIN forum members for the digital EP Uncoiled, and they've now been remastered for CD and vinyl, along with a never-before-heard remix of “Eraser” from the same sessions. The collection, now titled Recoiled, also includes a mix of "Closer” that became the opening title theme from David Fincher's Se7en.
Cold Spring is taking preorders now, and is slated for release on February 24th. Be sure to check back here soon for the full rundown!
