New Nine Inch Nails 'Not a Gentle Record,' Reveals Frontman Trent Reznor
Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor recently discussed the upcoming record "Hesitation Marks," describing it as somewhere in between the extremities when it comes to intensity. "I don't think it's a gentle record," Reznor tells New York Times. "I do think it's more subversive in how it gets you. It's not about everything being at 11 and the pyrotechnics of sound and scare tactics, which I've definitely used in the past. But it doesn't feel like the middle-aged, I've-given-up record either." The music was mostly composed on the frontman's laptop, using it primarily as a drum machine. "It feels sparse, and it feels minimal," he explained. "It's hard for me to do that. I've realized over the years that if I have 100 tracks, I'll use 110 tracks. This was really about economy. It was just a weird puzzle of grooves." Reznor also discussed his vocal dynamics on the record, describing them in a way as much more subtle. "It didn't dawn on me until I was almost done with the record that I don't really even raise my voice on this album that much," he added. "The mechanism of screaming choruses doesn't exist here. And that wasn't by design." Due out on September 3, "Hesitation Marks" comes as the ninth record in the NIN opus. Featuring a set of four different covers, the effort was previously announced with a "Came Back Haunted" music video. The group's previous album, "The Slip," dropped back in July 2008, landing at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 chart with over 98,000 units shipped in the US within the first week.
