Here's an interesting release. It's about 40 minutes' worth of Coil remixes of Nine Inch Nails songs including a version of 'Closer' that featured in the film 'Se7en', a sticker on the cover is keen to point out.
Trent Reznor is known to be a huge fan of Coil's - How To Destroy Angels was even named after their first EP - but I wasn't aware of this amount of remix material existing. The remixes are all great, too, and often substantially different from the source material. There are five mixes on here which range from claustrophobic industrial stompers to barely recognisable dark ambient ooze. I'm particularly enjoying the woozy, feverish ketamine shuffle of 'The Downward Spiral (A Gilded Sickness)', full of electronic twitches and digi-drone desolation alongside a coldly pulsating modular synth.
Another winner is 'Eraser (Reduction)', a grotesque tapestry of backwards screams and squeaking guitar drones and densely layered hums and buzzes. It's nine minutes of Oompaloompas getting stung to death by a dense cloud of bees. Backwards. This is pretty good.
