Nine Inch Nails – Pretty Hate Machine
”Pretty Hate Machine” is the debut studio album by American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, released by TVT Records on October 20, 1989. The album consists of reworked tracks from the Purest Feeling demo tape, as well as songs composed after its original recording. Production of the record was handled by NIN frontman Trent Reznor and English producer Flood, among other contributors.
The album, which features a heavily synth-driven electronic sound blended with industrial and rock elements, bears little resemblance to the band’s subsequent work. Conversely, much like the band’s later work, the album’s lyrics contain themes of angst, betrayal, and lovesickness. The record was promoted with the singles “Down in It”, “Head Like a Hole”, and “Sin”. The classic debut album, newly remastered.
