prettier hate machine

Last Friday, Trent Reznor announced a November 22 release date for a remastered version of his Nine Inch Nails debut, Pretty Hate Machine.

In addition to new cover art and the inclusion of Queen cover “Get Down, Make Love”, the reissue features what Reznor calls a “greatly improved sonic experience.” It seems the original mixes were found and Reznor went into the studio with engineer Tom Baker to “polish it up a bit.”

If you haven’t given it a listen lately, or you only remember Reznor’s more industrial “fuck you like an animal” days, you owe it to yourself to revisit this 1989 classic.

“Head Like A Hole” may have been the big single, but I always preferred the initial single, “Down In It”:

Another favorite is “That’s What I Get”, seen here from the long out-of-print concert film “Live Hate 90”:

And just in time for Halloween, here’s a video mashup of “Ringfinger” with a scene from 80’s horror flick Night of the Demons:

By the way, if Night of the Demons teaches us anything, please don’t party at an abandoned funeral parlor this Halloween. Thank you.
