Amoeba Review

03/31/2014

This EP features five rare Nine Inch Nails tracks as remixed by Coil, prior to deaths of Coil members Peter Christopherson and John Balance. Rescued from obscurity, these five lengthy tracks prove the kinship is more than skin-deep between between experimental/goth pioneers Coil and industrial-rock superstars Nine Inch Nails. Coil give the heavy “Gave Up” a searing, percussionless opening that places the focus on Trent Reznor’s desperate vocals, which are surrounded by echoing voices that sound like they’re crawling their way out of hell. “Closer – Unrecalled” is virtually indistinguishable from the well-known original, moving off the original’s coda and building a morose and languid yet rhythmically rich mood piece. “The Downward Spiral” is torn apart into a digital stew, and “Eraser’s” two remixes first find it as a long, atonal piece with screeching, whirling sounds emanating from every orifice, while the “Baby Alarm Remix” introduces chugging electric guitars and sampled beats—the two pieces stacked together make for a compelling, nearly 18-minute industrial sound piece. Though the departed Coil are sorely missed, this remix EP finds their adventurous sprit still very much appreciable as it bonds with classic Nine Inch Nails songs.
