Read this article on today and thought I couldn't possibly be the only person interested in this!


Trent Reznor's post Nine Inch Nails project has been revealed as How To Destroy Angels.

The new band, which is made up of the musician and his wife Mariqueen Maandig, have launched their website and released a 40 second video clip, which introduces an ambient, heavy electro sound, and shows a woman's hand - believed to be Mariqueen's - working a synthesiser.

The only statement released so far by the band reads: "Self-titled 6-track EP out this summer. Exact date TBA."

Multi-instrumentalist Trent- who retired his band Nine Inch Nails from playing live last year - has previously promised he will release new music this year, saying in December last year he will be working on projects: "Including new material from Nine Inch Nails and something else that isn't Nine Inch Nails."

One of Trent's friends, electro-rocker Gary Numan, recently said the new material will be a departure from the polished industrial metal sound of Nine Inch Nails.
He said: "I went out to dinner with Trent and he said then that it'd be great to do something very different from what both of us have done before, which sounds very exciting. I know he's been back in the studio working on stuff. He works constantly."

Thanks for the report to

I saw in the comments below that people were really really enjoying the track.

Here's a link to another site with the video on it:

It's not much, but it does have me intrigued!

For all the Slash fans out there, a video has premiered for the first song off of his new album:

QUOTE is proud to premiere a brand new Slash video for "By The Sword." The song comes from the legendary guitarist's latest album "Slash," and features Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother on vocals.

The video was shot April 3 and April 4 in the Los Angeles area. As previously reported, anyone could participate in the filming process as a part of the concert crowd. Several photos from the photoshoot are available at this location.

A live video of Slash and Andrew Stockdale performing "By The Sword" at The Roxy in L.A. on April 10th can be seen at Slash Online. At the show, Slash performed new songs from his new solo album together with GN'R classics such as "Civil War" and "Paradise City".

"Slash," the album, scored the highest new entry on The Billboard 200 chart, with first-week U.S. sales of around 60,000 copies.

The LP was released in North America on April 6 via EMI Label Services. The album features an all-star roster of guest musicians, including Ian Astbury, Chris Cornell, Rocco DeLuca, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Myles Kennedy, Kid Rock, Lemmy Kilmister, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Duff McKagan, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, and Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother.

Watch the official "By The Sword" video below!

In other news, Slash and Ultimate Guitar are announcing a unique fan Q&A session, giving UG users a chance to ask Slash anything they want. The questions will be answered by the guitarist on a monthly basis in his blog.

"I've been getting some very inquisitive comments and tweets from fans," Slash said in the announcement. "I’m going to address some of your questions on my official blog here on Ultimate-Guitar. So if you have something to say, please post it in this thread and hopefully I can answer you here. Just keep it clean. Iiii|; )"

Start submitting your questions right away!


The video can be watched from the link above.

I not only think the the member Q and A thing is really cool, but the whole Slash having a UG blog and being so involved is pretty awesome!

It's hopefully a great pilot idea for some other artists in the future!

After I posted a thead here about Cage the Elephant which is a band that is new'ish to me, I thought of starting a thread where each person can post their current Top 3 Favourite Songs. I hope this will help introduce some of us to new music that we haven't heard yet!

With such diversity in music and taste here, I am positive we can all find something in here if enough people participate!

I will start!

#1 Rotten to the Core - Hellyeah

#2 Stargazer - Dream Theater (Cover)

#3 Rusty Old Boat - Paul Gilbert

A bit ago I was getting sort of stale with the music I had been listening to so I thought I would look for some new inspirations.

I'm not much of a radio guy, but I thought I would listen to it for a while and see if there was some new interesting stuff out there!

Long story short, one new band I found and really like is called Cage the Elephant and thought I'd share them with you guys and girls! When I heard and saw their videos I immediately thought Adrian Figallo.

Here's their popular radio song:

And here's a second song that is one of my favourites:

Hope you all like!

Before I type anything else, I am posting this to spark some interesting discussion, not a forum war or any other nastiness.

Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher told in an interview that music pirates don't bother him. After all, he copied music throughout most of his youth, taping songs off the radio or duplicating music tapes provided by friends. Although downloading music from the Internet isn't exactly the same as waiting for your favorite song to appear on the radio and hit "record," Gallagher doesn't see the difference.

"I don’t mind it," he said referring to music piracy. "I hate all these big, silly rock stars who moan--at least they’re downloading your music and paying attention, know what I mean? You should appreciate that--what are you moaning about? You’ve got five big houses, so shut up."

Gallagher's words were a bit more colorful than the edited quote we provided here, however he makes a valid point: pirated music could extend the fanbase at no extra cost to the musician and the publisher. An illegally downloaded album could lead to an eventual purchase, followed by subsequent purchases of previous albums and related merchandise.

According to TorrentFreak, Gallagher's brother and former Oasis guitarist member Noel Gallagher has also expressed similar views on music piracy in the past. "If people are willing to have faceless CDs like that in their collection, good for them," he said. "It would be absolutely ludicrous for a rock-star to demand that people pay money for albums because the kids haven’t got that much money to pay for an album, so if they can find it for free, go ahead!"


I thought it was interesting to see someone famous who is in similar shoes of those who are against pirated music speak up and look at the other side of this coin.

Personally, I am a bit torn. I see this argument both ways.

I will say for now is that my personal music taste would not be the same if it was not for piracy. I would not know, listen to, or support much of the music I do today.

I also found it interesting when I read about Gallagher himself pirating music the old fashioned way by recording songs off of the radio laugh.gif

Obviously the scale is different now, but isn't the principle the same?

I do wonder how much artists are affected by this. I don't have any sourcing for this, but I recall reading somewhere that artists often make the most of their money from concerts and merchandise. Is it possible and/or true that most of the money we spend on CDs goes to various people and companies who are not the artist? The people producing it, marketing it, and working the CD stores?

I will admit that if CDs we're not $20-30CDN I might be interested in buying more of them. I don't know if this comparison is valid, but I could buy a DVD for that, and they cost a significant amount more to produce!

Anyone else have something to add to this?
