On "Snow," X talks about his depression, suicidal thoughts, and how he would rather be dead, apart from all the problems that have crossed his mind and make his life a "hell."

Killstation sampled "13 Ghosts II" by Nine Inch Nails, for the song’s atmospheric and haunting piano.

FRIENDS-

WEIRD TIMES INDEED…

AS THE NEWS SEEMS TO TURN EVER MORE GRIM BY THE HOUR, WE’VE FOUND OURSELVES VACILLATING WILDLY BETWEEN FEELING LIKE THERE MAY BE HOPE AT TIMES TO UTTER DESPAIR – OFTEN CHANGING MINUTE TO MINUTE. ALTHOUGH EACH OF US DEFINE OURSELVES AS ANTISOCIAL-TYPES WHO PREFER BEING ON OUR OWN, THIS SITUATION HAS REALLY MADE US APPRECIATE THE POWER AND NEED FOR CONNECTION.

MUSIC – WHETHER LISTENING TO IT, THINKING ABOUT IT OR CREATING IT – HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE THING THAT HELPED US GET THROUGH ANYTHING – GOOD OR BAD. WITH THAT IN MIND, WE DECIDED TO BURN THE MIDNIGHT OIL AND COMPLETE THESE NEW GHOSTS RECORDS AS A MEANS OF STAYING SOMEWHAT SANE.

GHOSTS V: TOGETHER IS FOR WHEN THINGS SEEM LIKE IT MIGHT ALL BE OKAY, AND GHOSTS VI: LOCUSTS… WELL, YOU’LL FIGURE IT OUT.

IT MADE US FEEL BETTER TO MAKE THESE AND IT FEELS GOOD TO SHARE THEM. MUSIC HAS ALWAYS HAD A WAY OF MAKING US FEEL A LITTLE LESS ALONE IN THE WORLD… AND HOPEFULLY IT DOES FOR YOU, TOO. REMEMBER, EVERYONE IS IN THIS THING TOGETHER AND THIS TOO SHALL PASS.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AGAIN SOON.
BE SMART AND SAFE AND TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER.

WITH LOVE,
TRENT & ATTICUS

HERE’S WHERE YOU CAN LISTEN RIGHT NOW:

This review pertains to the trilogy of the 2 EP's 'Not The Actual Events', 'Add Violence' and the album 'Bad Witch', by Nine Inch Nails.

Okay, so I've been spending some time with the EPs Not The Actual Events, Add Violence and the album Bad Witch...and Add Violence is the strongest work (and my most favourite of all 3). As for Not The Actual Events, I think there are some strong elements to it, but I do feel like Trent threw some garbage in there too as a "fuck you" to the current affairs and political climate in Trump's America. I know he doesn't like to get too political in his records, but I feel fatherhood and ageing has influenced his outspoken nature and worldview of late. My least favourite piece of the trilogy is Bad Witch. Funnily enough, I usually hate the songs that go on to be singles. They always jibe with my tastes. I remember feeling this way about Closer as a single, about With Teeth as the lead single on that album...I just seem to enjoy the works that are less mainstream. I'm spending more time with the music still, but I've found there is certainly a sense of anxiety embedded in the work. I feel its deliberate - because of Trent's new found outspokenness on the right wing agenda he is angry with. I do feel he is immature in a political sense. I do feel like he doesn't want to be associated with anything that the Republicans are doing in America today. But also, in a way, has Trent ever had to grow up? I'm not so sure. The fame and fortune he attained sheltered him from a lot of the harsh realities of life...sure, he must've battled financially before he got a hit on the radio, but he is a white guy, and therefore, especially in America things come easier for you when you are white. I struggle to understand whether his wife has had an impact on his political stance. And that disappoints me. It disappoints me in anyone, when they lose themselves to their significant other. So anyway, that's my assessment of the whole thing so far.

NINE INCH NAILS GHOSTS V-VI

As an aside, I have only spent a good deal of time with the first part of the new Ghosts...when I got to the second part, Locusts, it immediately made me feel anxious...and I haven't gone back as yet. But it was only the opening sequence I got to.
