Trent Reznor gets together with Rob Halford of Judas Priest as the two voyeurs, and instead of competing for time, get along just rne. The music deviates from Nine Inch Nails in that it’s a lot more metal flavored, and not as ‘Ooh, aren’t we scary’. It fact, besides it’s industrial electronic elements, it could have been born in Seattle ( I know a great place for voyeurs in the Emerald city if anyone wants to know).
Lot’s of headbanging and Soundgarden influenced distorted mayhem. Reznor, who’s family used to manufacture industrial heaters, never fails to push the envelope. Halford, on the other hand, sounds like he’s a free man at last. While not expected to fill every negative space with a hoot or a howl, and not afraid to sound like Perry Farrell (Wake Up) on an extremely bent day. Gallows humor rules the day, ‘There’s a hole deep in the ground, and I can be found diggin’ it deeper, if you want, you can come down, look around, cause you’ll rt right in.’ When the toys are broken, some one still has to play with them I guess. Don’t be afraid, this is the new heavy metal, and it rocks.
