We would argue that Nine Inch Nails may be one of the most artistically credible popular bands in the history of music. Taking a dark industrial sound, with a visual aesthetic of futuristic desolation, NIN leader Trent Reznor can channel a Matthew Barney dystopia better than anyone. Knowing their iconic nature precedes any project, the band and long-time collaborator and artist Russell Mills went super ambitious with the special release of Cargo In The Blood, a deluxe, limited edition, “320-page book collecting all of the works the artist created for Nine Inch Nails’ Hesitation Marks album.”
With a limited run of 2000 copies (at a well-priced 300 dollars, all details considered, boasting over 11 pounds of content and box-set quality), each volume of Cargo includes an original painting by Mills that was created specifically for the project. Reznor has always been an artist who understands how a full experience can enhance music, and Cargo is a sharp statement proving that bands who make special projects for their fans continue to thrive in 2016’s musical landscape.
