Nine Inch Nails: Another Version of the Truth

Trent Reznor has done it again. Well, actually. The fans have done it this time.

If you recall, back in 2008, Trent Reznor posted the C.D. The Slip for free on the Nine Inch Nails website. He left it with a note saying "This one's on me."

This time, the fans have given back to Reznor. A group of over a dozen NIN fans recorded their last show in Vegas on their 2008 Lights in the Sky Tour. They all sent in their videos to a girl by the alias of Torgo on Echoing The Sound. Torgo was the person who originally posted the idea of making the live dvd. In detail, she planned out how to shoot each and every song on the show. Having volunteers sneak in cameras, and telling them where to stand and so on.

The band also started finding out about this project, as the following message was posted.
"The venue for Friday night's performance in Victoria will have a very relaxed camera / camcorder policy... hmmn..."

They knew they had something that was going to happen. And they made it happen.

That leads us to now. After almost a year of piecing it together, Another Version of the Truth is finally done. The downloads are released, and it looks amazing. All of the download links are on thisoneisonus.org. The downloads are mostly in torrents, but they have nearly every video type possible. Please go and download it, and give them your support. This kind of thing is amazing.

For a group of fans to spend over a year editing and piecing the video together, is amazing. As Reznor said, "Nine Inch Nails fans kick ass." I don't think he could have said it any better.

Here is the trailer.
