NINE INCH NAILS
BAD WITCH
Capitol
In the home stretch of 2016, NINE INCH NAILS put out an EP titled NOT THE ACTUAL EVENTS, which was to be the first of a trilogy with an overarching concept. That and the follow up EP, ADD VIOLENCE, both were a return to form for TRENT REZNOR and newly christened band member ATTICUS ROSS, diving headfirst into noisy electronics and pitch black industrial atmospheres. After reevaluating what they had done, however, NIN decided that their previously planned conclusion to the trilogy was too obvious. So, in a very REZNOR move, he completely scrapped it and started fresh, leading us to BAD WITCH. In stark contrast to the previous 2 EPs, BAD WITCH truly sounds like NIN trying something they've never done before. Sounding heavily inspired by DAVID BOWIE's swan song BLACKSTAR, the whole EP (called an LP by REZNOR himself) pulses with a nervous energy, incorporating speedy & jazz inspired rhythms, dissonant & washed out saxophones, and some truly left field vocal performances from REZNOR himself. All in all, BAD WITCH just might be the weirdest release NIN has ever put out, but makes the project sound more vital than they have in years. While the other releases in the trilogy may have been good, BAD WITCH is impossible to ignore and belongs with THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL and THE FRAGILE as the best work NIN has ever done. RECOMMENDED!!!!!
