DieHumane release cover of Nine Inch Nail’s “Something I Can Never Have” to mark the release of their debut album The Grotesque on vinyl. The Grotesque was released in May of this year to critical acclaim and made it to the top 10 on metal radio in the US. The album features former Exodus guitarist Rick Hunolt on lead guitar and former Type O Negative/Life Of Agony drummer Sal Abruscato on drums. Upon completion of the record, which was recorded during 2020/2021, Abruscato returned to his own respective projects.
“This was something we recorded specifically for the vinyl release. Trent Reznor is one of the most important and unique composers of our time and it was an honor to be able to pay tribute to his artistry in our own way by covering one of his most gut-wrenching and emotional songs. We’ll be the first to admit that nothing we could have done could match the power of what that man and a piano can pull off, so we went our own way with it, combining elements of smooth jazz, doom metal, and classical to paint a sprawling 10 minute tribute to an artist who’s influence can be heard on every song we have written and will write. We hope you enjoy it”.
The album is available in both standard edition vinyl as well as a special collectors edition vinyl available through WURMgroup, the label of legendary producer, Ulrich Wild, who also produced the album.
“We’re super excited about the release of The Grotesque on vinyl. We worked our asses off on ensuring that we came up with something cool and unique for our vinyl release. From day one we wanted the songs, music videos, album art, etc to all be part of one large piece of art that creates an entire package rather than just a handful of things to sell. The people that actually buy physical media now a days deserved the coolest thing we could create for them and we’re confident that we did that.”
