CD review Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross "Gone girl" OST

Veröffentlicht am 8. Dezember 2014 von Markus W. in Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails, Rock, Industrial, CD Review, News

(*/10) "Gone girl" is the new movie from David Fincher. It is a film that is based on a book from Gillian Flynn and is about the Dunnes - the perfect couple. It seems that they have a perfect relation. Things pretend to be very right and everything looks like being perfect. This changes after Amy Dunne disappears all of a sudden; a drama about mistrust and the depth of the human soul takes up speed.

The soundtrack for this movie was done by Trent Reznor together with his partner Atticus Ross. Reznor is well known from his band Nine Inch Nails, but the talented musicians participated also already in soundtracks for e.g. "The social network" and "The girl with the dragon tattoo".

The twentyfour tracks on this soundtrack capture the vibe of the movie really well. All of the them full of sphereful keyboards and synthesiser based songs that build big soundscapes. Sometimes fragile, sometimes scary and sometimes melancholic the music transports all kinds of emotions.

This soundtrack isn't necessarily something for metalheads and it is also very different from Nine Inch Nails. But if you're looking for a bit of another sound experience than this is something to try-out.

CD review Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross "Gone girl" OST

Live review NINE INCH NAILS, Heineken Music Hall, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 27.05.2014

Veröffentlicht am 29. Mai 2014 von Caroline K. in Nine Inch Nails, NIN, Live Review, News, Industrial, Modern Metal

Nine Inch Nails known for their industrial heavy weight awing performances came back with a vengeance. An epileptic inducing graphic light show did not disappoint and was totally in sync with their thunderess sounds.


Surprisingly the show was not sold out. Reznor stage presence added shadows of himself to the graphic light wall. Hunched over the mic, he spitted out his unique vocals in a quality that entwined into the music to a pumped moshing sweaty crowd. The heat in HMH was off the scale whereby Trent’s own body fluids contaminated his own synth but the show continued with a “fuck it”. Thankfully in front we were sprayed with water by one of Trent’s bodyguards with an attempt to cool us a little. This was gratefully accepted especially when given water to drink. The set list was career spanning including "Head like a hole", "Disappointed", "Closer", "The Frail & the Wretched", "Copy of a", "March of the pigs" and ending with powerful rendition of "Hurt". Every song detonated the crowd into a full-scale rock assault. The musical ferocity left the audience with what they came for after so many years without.


Not to forget Cold Cave, who opened up for NIN and warmed up the crowd. 




Set list: 

Me, I'm Not 

Copy of A 


March of the Pigs 


The Frail 

The Wretched 

Gave Up 

Sanctified (with Sunspots riff) 


Find My Way 

The Warning 


Came Back Haunted 

The Great Destroyer 




The Hand That Feeds 

Head Like a Hole 



The Day the World Went Away
