The Nine Inch Nails song «Closer to God» was written by Trent Reznor and released as the second single from the band’s 1994 album The Downward Spiral. The song is a popular alternative title for the band’s original version and is included on this remix EP. The song has also received remixes by Sean Beaven, Brian Pollock, and other artists. In addition to Trent Reznor, the project also featured original songs by Brian Eno, The Killers, and Soft Cell.
This EP features Reznor’s hit «Closer to God» with different arrangements and synthesizers. The original track has distorted beats, driving guitars, and synthesizers, but the remix by Coil and Danny Hyde emphasizes the atmosphere, with bass grooves and smooth beats. This track is one of the definitive songs of the 1990s. The title of the song itself is extremely sinister and carries a very dark tone.
