Nine Inch Nails – Add Violence (EP)
Nine Inch Nails, commonly abbreviated as NIN, is an American industrial rock band formed in 1988 in Cleveland, Ohio. Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Trent Reznor was the only permanent member of the band until the official addition of English musician Atticus Ross in 2016. Nine Inch Nails have sold over 20 million records and have been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, winning for the songs “Wish” (1992) and “Happiness in Slavery” (1996). In 1997, Time named Reznor one of the most influential people, and Spin has described him as “the most vital artist in music”. Add Violence is their sixth extended play (EP) and eleventh major release, produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Moving away from the more aggressive nature of their previous EP release, Add Violence focused more on soundscapes and textures alongside their traditional elements, similar to that of The Fragile (1999), which resulted in more longform compositions. The release was promoted with two singles: “Less Than” and “This Isn’t the Place”, along with their accompanying music videos.
