That album actually wasn't the finish of the band. Ogre had done some touring with Ministry on their Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste tour(documented on the In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up Live VHS), which helped to introduce guitars into the sound. The Last Rights was when they broke up, I think by the end of the tour Ogre and Cevin just didn't get along that well. Ogre had his own side projects as did Cevin, who had Download, Hilt and a couple of other ones I think. The recording of The Process is what really took the most out of them. They spent a couple of hundred thousand dollars on the recording going through a couple of different producers. Dwayne at that point began to get depressed about the whole thing and was doing heroine, which Ogre and Cevin were unaware of the extent at which he was doing it. Sadly that led to Dwayne's passing as well as what seemed like a permanent break up. Then the reunion show that was recorded for Back and Forth VL.5 led to Ogre and Cevin getting back together and mending broken fences. They have a new live CD coming out soon, or it already is out. I agree with The Wall and anything by Tool as well. I was hoping for the release of NIN's Pretty Hate Machine in surround sound, but it looks like it won't happen, which is sad. Would have been a nice companion piece to The Downward Spiral.
Thanks for the vast info Darkpoet25, yes I feel like a fan mainly because I use to follow their album releases little a Puppy starting with Mind. The Perpetual intercourse , but gave up right after The Process, or last Rights can't recall was last for me. I like Warlock, but Tin omen has a special place in my heart, maybe because all the bruise it took during the rapid drumming while slam dancing in the middle of the War Saw Ball room here in NYC back in the early 90's chip a tooth, ah the memories!
I gotta go look In case you Didn't Feel like Showing Up live on Blu Ray, highly doubt it's on the format, we use watch that tape religiously, Jourgensen's a really showman along with Jello and Luc van Acker speaking of I'm a big fan of RevCo as well.. All good stuff, that would never make it in Hi Def, well I did order a disc from this guy over Ebay who claim he can mix 2 channel tunes into 5.1, I should receive the disc, and I'll be judging to see if it just some faux-mix, Matrix type hype or what.
On Pretty Hate Machine I also doubt we see it as it just received some special anniversary treatment, yet no hi rez multi channel mix
, the sound production in and 2 channel separation it's all ready amazing, seem fairly easy and straight forward on what it needs, not allot of thinking for the engineer, I would think which only leads me to think it's like everything else money.
