- I recently came across a band called ERROR and thought I would recommend them to anyone looking for something new. The group is made up of members of Bad Religion, Dillinger Escape Plan, and the Nine Inch Nails camp. I've been listening to their music none stop for the last few days and the best description I've seen of it so far is "Come to Daddy" by Aphex Twin meets "The Perfect Drug" by Nine Inch Nails. MuchMusic has Realaudio clips from the band's debut EP (due out Feb. 24th ) in their Listening Lounge and Epitaph Records has also set up a microsite where you can stream the entire album if it sounds like your type of thing.
- For anyone wondering what happened to ORGY, it turns out they are still together and have a new album coming out Feb. 24th. Their website has a Media section with mp3 clips from all the tracks. It sounds like it'll be a really solid album. Check it out.
- Lastly, Sarah Jag. informs me that there is a new Nine Inch Nails album on the way (see below). Start saving your pennies now.
NINE INCH NAILS
TITLE: Bleedthrough (NOTHING)
EXPECT IT: "Soon."
"The record explores loss and possible discovery of self," says Trent Reznor about the follow-up to 1999's The Fragile, "along with alternate layers of reality and perception set inside a nightmare you can't seem to wake up from; with lots of feedback." Reznor has enlisted Atticus Ross (Error), Jerome Dillon, Leo Herrera, mix engineer Rich Costey and Rick Rubin to help mold bleedthrough, which will feature new songs such as "The Line Begins To Blur," "Everyday Is Exactly The Same" and "My Dead Friend." This time out, Reznor is introducing high-tech to low-life. "Computers, among other things, are ruining music these days," he says. "I hate the Pro Tooled sound of perfection and everything being 'fixed.' This record is most definitely 'un-fixed.'" And when it comes to touring behind the release, Trent Reznor is planning on reinventing the wheel. "It won't be the last tour over again. That person isn't here anymore."
