Surreal, jarring, and definitely not for those prone to seizures, the new Nine Inch Nails music video for “Came Back Haunted” has been released. Directed by David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Lost Highway), the song comes from the band’s upcoming album Hesitation Marks, which comes out September 2nd via Columbia Records. You can watch the video below.
Personally, while I think it’s an okay video, I was expecting something more from a collaboration between Reznor and Lynch. It just doesn’t feel like the full potential of both artists was utilized here. Instead, there’s a whole boatload of shaky cam and images with graphics and effects over top. Definitely disappointing.

Rolling Stone has posted some pictures from the upcoming Nine Inch Nails music video for “Came Back Haunted”, which was directed by the famed David Lynch. The video will make its online debut tomorrow via Vevo. Below are the pictures, which were taken by Rob Sheridan (How To Destroy Angels).
In a 1997 interview with Rolling Stone, Reznor stated, “I’m a huge David Lynch fan – we used to hold up Nine Inch Nails shows just so we could watch the latest Twin Peaks. So we set up a weekend for him to come to my place in New Orleans. At first, it was like the most high-pressure situation ever. It was literally one minute, ‘Hi, I’m David Lynch,’ and he’s cooler than I even imagined he would be. Three minutes later, he’s saying: ‘Well, let’s go in the studio and get started.’”
Lynch and NIN frontman Trent Reznor have worked together before on Lost Highway, with Reznor producing the soundtrack and providing several original tracks.
“Came Back Haunted” comes from NIN’s upcoming album Hesitation Marks, which comes out September 3rd via Columbia Records. READ MORE
Joey Jordison, drummer of Slipknot, has announced the formation of a new band entitled Scar The Martyr. The band is signed to Roadrunner Records and will release their as-yet-untitled debut album this fall. Produced by Rhys Fulbar (Front Line Assembly, Fear Factory), the album will feature vocalist Henry Derek, keyboardist Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, American McGee’s Alice), and guitarists Jed Simon (Strapping Young Lad) and Kris Norris (Darkest Hour). Jordison played drums and bass on all songs as well as rhythm guitar on all but two tracks. Simon and Norris handled lead guitars for the full album. The musical style of the album will blend rock with “…post-punk and industrial.”
“With this project, I focused my efforts on writing for the better of the song,” says Jordison. “I wasn’t worried about flash or persona… It’s all about writing a good solid song. I’m writing music that people can grasp and hold on to…something that resonates. If you don’t have that, then you have nothing.” READ MORE
Trent Reznor, the Nine Inch Nails frontman, has tweeted a picture of himself with director/musician David Lynch. There is no explanation for the snapshot, aside from the description “tr;dl” (Trent Reznor; David Lynch). There could be a few reasons for this: 1) They’re just hanging out. The two of them have worked together before, so them being pals makes sense. 2) Lynch could be directing a music video for Reznor, perhaps for the new single “Came Back Haunted”. 3) Reznor will be contributing on Lynch’s upcoming album The Big Dream, either helping with some music (kind of unlikely as the album will be coming out next month) or by doing a remix.
Reznor has worked with Lynch before musically, producing and providing original music for the 1997 film Lost Highway. Reznor will be releasing a new Nine Inch Nails album Hesitation Marks on September 3rd via Columbia Records.
Meanwhile, Lynch’s album The Big Dream will be released July 15th. It is the follow up to 2011′s Crazy Clown Time.

Bloody-Disgusting is thrilled to team up with Hollywood, CA rockers Black Lodge to premiere the music video for “Drag”, the latest song from their upcoming debut album The Diary Of Tomahawk. The video, directed by Tanya Dahl, continues the story of female protagonist Tomahawk from the “Never Clean” video as we follow her journey into the world of dark magic and the shadowy world therein. Full of mystic imagery, the video is well worth checking out below.
Black Lodge founder and lead guitarist Johnny Royal explains, “In chapter 2 [Drag] of The Diary of Tomahawk, we begin to see the storyline unfold a lot more. Key characters are revealed and the nature of who they are begins to be seen. Tomahawk stumbles into a ritual being conducted by a coven of witches who are a part of The Great Lamia. During the ceremony, the Grand Master of The Great Lamia, Breviculum, is seen invoking the spirit-birth of the demi-god, The Raven. Tomahawk is given an ancient Akkadian-Sumerian celestial map and is offered the choice of finding out who she really is and where she is descended from.”
“Drag” was recorded at The Real Creative and was co-produced by Jeordie White (a.k.a. Twiggy Ramirez of Marilyn Manson and A Perfect Circle fame) as well as Lee Miles (Rise Against) and is mixed by Sean Beavin (Nine Inch Nails). The album will be released this year. Also, part 1 of a graphic novel done by Wayne Robinson (Marvel Comics: Wolverine, Captain America) is available for download now at the band’s Official Website. READ MORE

“Came Back Haunted”, the first single from the upcoming Nine Inch Nails album Hesitation Marks is here!!!
I dig the song! It has a good chorus and I’m waiting for a higher quality version to come along so I can hear the layering (especially on the chorus). It sounds a little bit like Year Zero, something I’m hoping the rest of the album shakes off. Perhaps this is just a bridge to something really different?
The follow up to 2008′s The Slip, Hesitation Marks will be released September 3rd, 2013 via Columbia Records. Listen to the song below!!! READ MORE

People rejoiced when it was announced that Trent Reznor had not only resurrected Nine Inch Nails but that the album would also be released within the year! Now fans can get ready for their first taste of the new album when NIN releases the first single, “Came Back Haunted”, this Thursday at 2:30pm EST.
Lisa Worden, Los Angeles radio station KROQ program director, states that the song “…hearkens back to early Nine Inch Nails,” adding, “I think it’s in line with the first two albums. It’s got a great beat, it’s not the experimental material Trent’s done in the last five years.”
The as-of-yet-untitled album will be released via Columbia Records and is the first new album since 2008′s The Slip. READ MORE
Fans of Nine Inch Nails can commence rejoincing AND frantically pacing back and forth while biting their fingernails in anticipation. According to mainman Trent Reznor a new NIN album has been completed and will be released this year! Reznor signed NIN to Colombia Records (the same labels as How To Destroy Angels).
Reznor stated in a press release, “I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!”
NIN will be embarking on several tour dates this year. The live lineup will consist of Reznor, Adrian Belew of King Crimson, Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv, Robin Finck, Alessandro Cortini, and Ilan Rubin. Below is the full schedule. READ MORE
Trent Reznor is embracing the power of the Internet like no other, using it to continually engage fans of Nine Inch Nails, and his new project, How to Destroy Angels.
Bloody’s Jonathan Barkan recently shared his top NIN music videos, which prompted me to re-watch them all. It also had me obsessing over the unreleased “Broken” short, a bootlegged video that resides in my old room in my parent’s house in Chicago.
Thanks to Reznor, I won’t have to wait until August to watch. The Academy Award winning musician has uploaded the never-before-released “Broken” short to Vimeo so everyone can enjoy the 1993 masterpiece.
“This 1993 short film, directed by Peter Christopherson, collects the videos from the NIN Broken EP and ties them together as a “snuff” film. It was never officially released due to its graphic content, but was leaked in the 90s, and became a widely-traded VHS bootleg. A high quality burnable DVD version has since leaked onto torrent sites.”
It’s is warned, though, that it was never officially released due to its graphic content (VERY NSFW). READ MORE
Just like movie remakes, cover songs can be really tricky. Some are fantastic while some are truly god awful that should have never even considered “paying homage” to the original. But when they nail it, oh boy is it something special. Look at the remakes of John Carpenter’s The Thing or Dawn Of The Dead, films that took elements of the original and created something new and exciting. Films like these got me thinking, “What are some of my favorite cover songs? What are songs that payed homage to a classic while creating something original?” So I put together five cover songs that I feel met these requirements for your enjoyment. Head on below for my 5 Great Cover Songs! READ MORE
Season 3 of “The Walking Dead” is a distant memory. Well, not distant, but I get the sense that a lot of you would like to go ahead and forget that finale. But still, one of the things the show does right are its’ expert makeup and visual/cg effects.
To that effect, Stargate Studios has uploaded a video taking a quick look at how some of the season’s messiest kills were orchestrated. Even better? It’s scored to NIN’s “Heresy.”

There is something very violent yet erotic about the music of Nine Inch Nails. Mixing harsh, electronic tonal elements with organic flavors, there might not be a more perfect movie franchise to compare it to than the Hellraiser series. That’s why the below video of Nine Inch Nails “Happiness In Slavery” (taken from the Fixed EP) mixed with footage and clips from Hellraiser II: Hellbound seems to work so beautifully. Given the stamp of approval from Clive Barker himself, it’s definitely worth checking out.
“Happiness In Slavery” landed at #2 in my Top 10 Nine Inch Nails Music Videos list. READ MORE

For those of you who want to feel really old, it’s been 19 years since the release of the classic Nine Inch Nails album The Downward Spiral. Yeah, 19 years. A baby born that year is now either in college or getting ready to go there. Let that sink in for a moment and then come over to my place where I have box upon box of tissues so that we may weep together.
In celebration of this milestone, we want to point you to a fantastic mini-documentary that focuses on Mark Romanek’s now infamous “Closer” music video. Romanek says about the song that, “…it’s probably the most amazing piece of music I’ve ever been given to make a video for…“.
