One of my favorite albums of the past five years is Nine Inch Nails’ 2005 release, “With Teeth”. It’s a record chocked-full of hypnotic drum loops and haunting, yet hook-heavy melodies. It’s the perfect soundtrack for working out, getting in a fight at the mall or even playing D&D.
This loop takes some of the flammed-out, in your face, floor tom action that is present on several tracks on With Teeth and mixes it with the thick and dry kick and snare sound that is prevalent on many other Trent Reznor’s productions.
Now go lock yourself in your bedroom, paint your fingernails black and lay down some industrial-goth-pop stylings on top of this groove.
