Nine Inch Nails - Broken mp3 album

It was released on September 22, 1992, by Nothing, TVT, and Interscope Records. The EP was produced by frontman Trent Reznor and Flood. The release consists entirely of new material and replaces the synth-pop style of the band's 1989 debut album Pretty Hate Machine with a considerably heavier sound that would act as a precursor to their second album The Downward Spiral (1994).

Released September 22, 1992. The recording of Halo 5 was tumultuous and secretive, as the label that signed Nine Inch Nails, TVT, wanted a repeat of Halo 2. This not only had an effect on the anti-establishment lyrics of Halo 5, but also helped form Trent Reznor’s later attitudes towards the music industry and artistic autonomy. Pinion – Instrumental. Help Me I Am in Hell – Instrumental. Happiness in Slavery.

Given how draining it is, a full-length album in its style would unquestionably have been wearisome, even self-parodic. So, Broken is the rare EP that's conceptually focused and complete unto itself. Production-wise, it's also a step up from Pretty Hate Machine, and a showcase for Reznor's flowering studio acumen. While Pretty Hate Machine was primarily electronic, Broken is loaded with heavy, jagged guitars, processed through a veritable meat grinder of effects into a massive wall of distortion.

Nine Inch Nails has also contributed to numerous film soundtracks as well as the soundtrack to the video game Quake. Initial ambitions for Nine Inch Nails in 1988 were to release one 12-inch single on a small European label.
