The third part of this Nine Inch Nails album chapter is quite possibly their most jarring. The industrial noise double threat of Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor is unrelenting in every way, almost as if they’re testing your will to survive.
When put into context with the other two pieces of the three EP puzzle, the grander picture is utterly terrifying. While ‘Not The Actual Events’ remained somewhat vulnerable, and ‘Add Violence’, well, did just that, ‘Bad Witch’ brings things to a nasty head, brimming with consciousness and unnerving mechanical matter.
Be warned; there are no bangers here. It’s intense brutality that’ll test you, and leave you feeling a bit empty – in all the right ways. Obviously.
