New NIN Horsecock?

Post by albiedamned » Mon Jul 31, 2017 9:40 pm

The final 7+ minutes of the final track on the new NIN EP is a 3 bar loop repeated over and over with ever increasing distortion. I don't have an RK2 anymore, but from what I recall, I think it sounds like it. Does anyone else think this is an RK2 at work? The track is below; the looping starts at 4:06.

Possible although this is a lot more extreme than an RK2 by itself. They probably used 2 or more extreme-distorters in series.

(hope that track annoys the hell out of some whinging goth nitwits....maybe we should put an "Add Violence" control on a future product.)

It is a bit masturbatory to professionally record and release a song where you just slowly turn up a distortion knob over the same repeating loop for 7 minutes.

Possibly Trent combined and layered a couple of things together to achieve those sounds which he is notorious for. As for 7 minutes of slowly distorting a loop seems kind of long and monotonous. If they had shorten it up a bit I believe it would have been a great ending to that EP.

That would be awesome if you make an "add violence" control to another one of your creations, Eric.

I'm happy if Metasonix get additional business by Trent using the products. But for God's sake, NIN is the most corporate, posing, industrial-dance klub, rich dood fakers to come down the pike. A better example of the spectacle is hard to find. Sorry. I know the greatest sin these days is to be "mean". But like the scorpion said to the frog, I just couldn't help myself.

Admins, please change thread title to the technically accurate "New NIH Cock".
Note this technically then ventures into pony territory. Nine is for beginning equestrians.

I dunno, he's done some amusing remixes in the past that have used this sort of thing.

Trolling-as-art is definitely a thing, and some good stuff can come out of it. Case in point: Sunn O)))

Reminds me of Elton John (dead princess with Paul Weller mod toupee years) with a little bit of Laura Branigan ("Ti Amo" non pub dialect year).

contrary to peeps in this thread i enjoy listening to the distortion and the patterns emerging in it over time.

I wonder if the loop is a actually re-recorded loop going through a dist/EQ, successively getting layered with more distortion, rather than just someone turning up the distortion knob over 7 minutes :hmm:
