Trent Reznor

Michael Trent Reznor (born May 17, 1965 in Mercer, Pennsylvania), better known as Trent Reznor, is the creative force behind the band Nine Inch Nails. He released most of his work under his former record label, Nothing Records. In 2004, he stated he will have nothing more to do with the label. Until recently, he had lived in New Orleans, Louisiana.

TVT Records signed Trent Reznor, and in 1989 he released "Pretty Hate Machine", Nine Inch Nails' first album. Subsequent works include 1992's eight song EP "Broken", 1994's "The Downward Spiral" and 1999's "The Fragile". His latest album, "With Teeth", is expected to be released on 3 May 2005.

Reznor was the credited producer for Marilyn Manson's albums Portrait of an American Family (1994), Smells Like Children (1995), and Antichrist Superstar (1996), as well as the soundtrack for the film Natural Born Killers.

Reznor likes video games, most notably Doom by id Software, which he has said he played in the Nine Inch Nails tour bus after doing shows. He also created the soundtrack for id Software's hit Quake. (As a side-note, the NIN logo also appears on the nailgun ammo boxes in Quake)

Trent returned to work with id Software in 2003 as the sound engineer for video game Doom 3. However, due to "time, money, and bad management" he had to abandon this project, and his audio work did not make it into the game's release. The original audio files can be found on the internet, although they are not officially endorsed by Reznor or id software. Chris Vrenna, former drummer for Nine Inch Nails, produced the music for Doom 3 with his partner Clint Walsh.

During the five years between his albums The Downward Spiral (1994) and The Fragile (1999), Trent Reznor struggled with depression, writer's block, and the death of his grandmother. He has been reported to be suffering from bipolar disorder. It was reported that Reznor had considered committing suicide during this period. In a 1999 interview for Rolling Stone magazine, he said that "It just took me time to sit down and change my head and my life around. I had to slap myself in the face: 'If you want to kill yourself, do it, save everybody the fucking hassle. Or get your shit together.'"

Trent has collaborated with such artists as Tori Amos, adding backing vocals to "Past the Mission" from Under the Pink. He has also worked with David Bowie, Pigface, Marilyn Manson, The Neptunes, 1000 Homo DJs, and Peter Gabriel.

A collaboration with Danny Lohner, Maynard James Keenan of Tool, and Atticus Ross of 12 Rounds known as Tapeworm was in production for almost ten years, but an update on the official Nine Inch Nails website has declared that the project has been terminated. The only known performance of any Tapeworm material was of Keenan's other band, A Perfect Circle performing the song "Vacant" on tour in 2001. "Vacant" appears on A Perfect Circle's third album eMOTIVe, reworked and retitled "Passive".

The only known performance of any Tapeworm material was of Keenan's other band, A Perfect Circle performing the song "Vacant" on tour in 2001. "Vacant" appears on A Perfect Circle's third album eMOTIVe, reworked and retitled "Passive". (Their three-part arrangement of the normally four-part "Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's "Messiah", featured on Keep on Doing [1982], is legendary in a cappella circles.). A collaboration with Danny Lohner, Maynard James Keenan of Tool, and Atticus Ross of 12 Rounds known as Tapeworm was in production for almost ten years, but an update on the official Nine Inch Nails website has declared that the project has been terminated. They have also recorded their own arrangements of songs from a variety of New York folk artists, as well as a few covers of famous songs. He has also worked with David Bowie, Pigface, Marilyn Manson, The Neptunes, 1000 Homo DJs, and Peter Gabriel. The majority of Roches songs are written by the three sisters, alone, in every combination, and occasionally collaborating with other songwriters. Trent has collaborated with such artists as Tori Amos, adding backing vocals to "Past the Mission" from Under the Pink. Suzzy's daughter Lucy Roche has also contributed vocals on the Roches' and McTeigue's albums.

Or get your shit together.'". Maggie's son, Felix McTeigue, has recorded two albums (one with his group Filo). I had to slap myself in the face: 'If you want to kill yourself, do it, save everybody the fucking hassle. Brother David is also a singer-songwriter with his own solo album, and has often backed up the trio on their recordings. In a 1999 interview for Rolling Stone magazine, he said that "It just took me time to sit down and change my head and my life around. Musical talent runs further in the family. It was reported that Reznor had considered committing suicide during this period. While touring as a trio, all three sisters accompany themselves on guitar and keyboard, frequently without additional musicians.

He has been reported to be suffering from bipolar disorder. Suzzy playfully fills in the middle range to complete the trio. During the five years between his albums The Downward Spiral (1994) and The Fragile (1999), Trent Reznor struggled with depression, writer's block, and the death of his grandmother. Terre provides a soprano that brackets the upper range of the sisters. Chris Vrenna, former drummer for Nine Inch Nails, produced the music for Doom 3 with his partner Clint Walsh. Maggie has a dramatic contralto voice that provides an unusual bass element for all-female harmonies. The original audio files can be found on the internet, although they are not officially endorsed by Reznor or id software. All three sisters can be found periodically participating in New York-area events.

However, due to "time, money, and bad management" he had to abandon this project, and his audio work did not make it into the game's release. Suzzy, who has acted on the stage and in several movies, released two of her own albums and two with Maggie, with whom she is currently touring. Trent returned to work with id Software in 2003 as the sound engineer for video game Doom 3. Terre teaches guitar workshops and has released a solo album. (As a side-note, the NIN logo also appears on the nailgun ammo boxes in Quake). They continue to work on solo projects and often collaborate on albums and performances. He also created the soundtrack for id Software's hit Quake. In 1997, the three sisters formally put The Roches group on indefinite hold.

Reznor likes video games, most notably Doom by id Software, which he has said he played in the Nine Inch Nails tour bus after doing shows. After a tour that was interrupted by the death of their father, The Roches crafted a more somber and thoughtful album, Can We Go Home Now (1995), the last original recording they released as a trio. Reznor was the credited producer for Marilyn Manson's albums Portrait of an American Family (1994), Smells Like Children (1995), and Antichrist Superstar (1996), as well as the soundtrack for the film Natural Born Killers. After another pop album (A Dove, 1992), they recorded an entire album of children's songs entitled Will You Be My Friend?, featuring a song by brother David and a gaggle of young backup singers, including Suzzy's daughter Lucy. His latest album, "With Teeth", is expected to be released on 3 May 2005. In 1990, they returned to their Christmas carolling roots with the release of the 24-track We Three Kings, which included the haunting a cappella "Star of Wonder", written by Terre. Subsequent works include 1992's eight song EP "Broken", 1994's "The Downward Spiral" and 1999's "The Fragile". Throughout the 1980s, The Roches continued to release their intriguing combination of quirky, fun, and sad music to small but appreciative audiences, little or no air play, and only modest record sales.

TVT Records signed Trent Reznor, and in 1989 he released "Pretty Hate Machine", Nine Inch Nails' first album. Maggie's "The Married Men" from this album was eventually to become the biggest hit of the songwriting trio — not for them, but for Phoebe Snow, as often happens to singer-songwriters. Until recently, he had lived in New Orleans, Louisiana. Robert Fripp produced the elegantly sparse album that allowed the sisters' complex and playful harmonies to shine through. In 2004, he stated he will have nothing more to do with the label. Terre was now writing songs as well, and by the time of their first album as a trio, The Roches (1979), Suzzy also caught the writing bug. He released most of his work under his former record label, Nothing Records. It was here that they met many of their future singing and songwriting collaborators.

Michael Trent Reznor (born May 17, 1965 in Mercer, Pennsylvania), better known as Trent Reznor, is the creative force behind the band Nine Inch Nails. Around this time, they parlayed bartending jobs at famous Greenwich Village folk venue Folk City into stage appearances, an experience they commemorated in their song, "Face Down at Folk City" (from Another World, 1985). Shortly after that, youngest sister Suzzy (rhymes with "fuzzy") chimed in to form The Roches trio. They returned the favor, so to speak, by getting his assistance (along with an appearance by The Oak Ridge Boys) on their first (and only) album as a duo, Seductive Reasoning (1975). The sisters got a break when Paul Simon brought them in as backup singers on his album There Goes Rhymin' Simon (1973).

In the late '60s, eldest sister Margaret and middle sister Terre (pronounced just like "Terry") quit school to tour as a duo. Maggie wrote most of the songs, with Terre contributing to a few. Now on hiatus as a trio, they still perform in various combinations and venues. Although they never had major commercial success, they developed an enthusiastic audience for their unique "family music". Their musical career spans more than four decades, taking them from neighborhood carolling and a touring duo to working the Greenwich Village folk scene as a trio, getting record contracts, doing more touring, occasionally appearing on television and in movies, and collaborating with other musicians on a variety of projects.
