Far be it from gloommeister Trent Reznor to rest on his laurels as bands
like Gravity Kills and Stabbing Westward re-work his riffs while the world
waits for the next Nine Inch Nails record. No, Reznor has been quite busy in
his bustling gothic manse in New Orleans. He's just finished co-production
duties on Marilyn Manson's next CD, Anti-Christ Superstar , due in
November, as well as scoring the latest video game from the makers of "Doom,"
entitled "Quake." Our sources tell us that Reznor will return to the studio in
September to begin work on the follow-up to 1994's The Downward Spiral
, with no concrete date set for its release. Although it hasn't been
confirmed yet, somewhere in there Reznor is also penciled-in to work on a score
for an upcoming big-budget Hollywood film, the name of which we could not
wrestle from his tenacious handlers.
