Trent Reznor Reflects On Nine Inch Nails’ “The Downward Spiral” Turning 30


30 years ago today (March 08th), Nine Inch Nails ushered in a revitalized era of industrial metal dominance with the release of their 1994 landmark album “The Downward Spiral“. That record would go on to obtain 4x multi-platinum success in the United States and cement the career of the band’s visionary mastermind Trent Reznor for decades to come.

Reznor himself took to Instagram earlier today to reflect on the effort, sharing the following:

“Spending too much time looking backwards feels dangerous to me, but this day on the calendar caught my attention. Has it really been that long, old friend? I just spent an hour listening to this time capsule of what 28 year old me had to say, and it still excites me and breaks my heart. Be kind to yourselves. Hope to see you soon.

TR 3.8.24”
