Industrial legends Nine Inch Nails have just uploaded a director’s cut version of “Survivalism”, one of the band’s Year Zero singles. The video, which was directed by Alex Lieu, Rob Sheridan, and Trent Reznor, follows a first person perspective of several TV surveillance monitors which are watching people and also following a SWAT-esque team going through hallways subduing those that are “out of line”.
Personally, I didn’t notice that much different but maybe it’s been a while since I’ve seen the original video. Any of you notice something glaringly different in the director’s cut that wasn’t in the original?
“Survivalism” landed at #7 on our Top 10 Nine Inch Nails Music Videos. Click the link for a full list of all ten. READ MORE
Swedish black metal band Ghost B.C. has released a very NSFW video for “Year Zero”, which comes from their upcoming sophomore album Infestissumam (out April 16th via Loma Vista). The video, directed by Amir Chamdin, features a coven of witches (who appear quite topless for a bit) and their Satanic fascination with an older man.
The band will also be embarking on the “Haze Over North America 2013″ tour with support coming from Ides Of Gemini. The full touring schedule is below. READ MORE

It has been nearly 5 years since Trent Reznor announced that his Nine Inch Nails concept album “Year Zero” would be adapted into a television series. It made the rounds and found a home at HBO back in 2010. Still, with 2013 on the horizon, Reznor and co. have yet to even get a pilot presentation off the ground. Who does he blame? Himself.
During a Reddit conversation to hype the sale of the terrible How to Destroy Angles EP “An omen_”, a new album he recorded with Yoko…whoops, I mean, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, Reznor tells his fans that there’s nothing going on with the “Year Zero” project at the moment.
“This is currently in a holding state,” says Reznor. “We didn’t find the right match with a writer, and really have been avoiding doing what we should have done from the beginning: write it ourselves. We = Rob and myself.
“This project means a lot to me and will see the light of day in one form or another,” says the optimistic NIN frontman.
“Year Zero” began (as so many things do in the music of Nine Inch Nails) from a place of wrenching emotion and sonic adventure. The “Year Zero” album criticizes the U.S. government — specifically the Bush years — and presents a dystopian vision of the year 2022. READ MORE
Having made the festival rounds this year (Tribeca, 24FPS, New York International Latino, Anchorage International), Bloody Disgusting is excited to share with you an exclusive look at Richard Cunningham III’s full-length short film Year Zero. Cunningham III directed, wrote, produced, composed, starred in, and even animated the short that features the voices of Pat Rigby, Tim Brennan, Marie-Pierre Beausejour and Bridget Carroll.
“While NYC burns outside, a loner remains trapped in his apartment no less by fear of the Apocalypse, than by the two zombies pounding at his door.
After he exhausts his food rations and nearly dies, he must soon decide to confront the horrors of a world void of humanity, or stick with his plan to wait for military rescue.”
A feature script is in the works taking place in the streets of NYC, after the events of the short.
