Been playing this a lot lately. Didn't even know it existed until I got it from the NIN remix site.

Nine Inch Nails - A Warm Place (Illum Tangendo)

I've always liked Stella Soleil's backing vox on select industrial tracks, so to hear her doing a Nine Inch Nails song is pretty eargasmic. Pretty cool backstory, too:

Quote
Originally, I wanted to sign a record deal with Nothing Records, which was owned by Trent Reznor and his ex-manager John Malm. I wanted to do this because, I was a huge NIN fan, but most importantly because I wanted Trent to produce my record. John Malm told my manager at the time, "Trent Reznor will never work with Sister Soleil. Stella is too pop for him." I was devastated. When I signed with Universal Records, Trent's manager had come out to Chicago, invited especially so that Universal could try to convince him to re-consider. Again, I was told I was too 'pop' for Trent. I did something really stupid and risky then. I took the instrumental track of "a warm place" on the actual release of 'A Downward Spiral' and brought it to Chicago Trax Recording studios and dumped it into pro-tools. I had written lyrics and melody to it, and i just, really wanted to see if it would work. I didn't want anything to jeopardize the possibility of this working (for instance, if my lyrics really were "too pop"), so i broke the words up into a kind of code, pronouncing the wrong syllables, etc. I had been listening to a lot of Hildengard Von Bingen's "A Feather on the Breath of God". A lyric that had stuck with me, on that recording, was "illum tangendo' which is a very old form of Latin for the phrase "touching Him". Without permission, I recorded vocals on top of Trent's release. I didnt play it for anyone, until Bud Carr (the music supervisor for the Stigmata soundtrack) called me asking for submissions for the movie he was working on. I think I just wanted somebody to acknowledge that, working with Trent, could still happen (even though, everyone, was telling me to forget it. i could not forget it.) I submitted 5 tracks to Bud. Ofcourse, he called me enthusiastic about 1 track, "a warm place'. I got scared. I explained that I did not get permission to do this, it was only a kind of test for myself, it was stupid, etc....Bud insisted that he would get it to Trent and he would like it. I got a phone call about a week later, from John Malm saying that Trent wanted to speak to me. It did not sound good. I instantly regretted trying to go around him. About another week after that, Trent called me, and I remember spilling an entire gallon of milk on myself and the hardwood floors in my friend's apartment as I braced for what could have been, and rightfully so, a very bad response. He said "I'm usually an asshole about people trying to use my music, but I was pleasantly suprised when I heard this. Did you want to come to New Orleans to re-cut this?". I spent about 4 days at his studios. I met a really cool guy named "rave" that engineered this version. Trent produced it. I had a blast. I stayed at the famous Pontchatrain Hotel, which sadly, I think, was washed away with Katrina. I cried when I left, but not until I was out of sight. It was a kind of victory and a dream, all rolled into one. A couple years ago, someone told me that he posted it onto his remix site on nin.com. Now that was the coolest thing ever. I think he talks a little about what happened to the track there.

a warm place/ illum tangendo lyrics

water rolls down the skin like tiny beads.
eyes close so that they might see.
illum tangendo.
this sun is a star in someone else's sky.
illum tangendo.
this moon is making someone cry.
illum tangendo.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Dezperadoz Riders Of The Storm

I've been rocking to Dezperadoz! I haven't listened to these albums in a few years. I have The Legend and the Truth, and An Eye for an Eye, and it looks like they've come out with some new material since. They're a spaghetti-western themed metal band from Germany. They always do one or two cover songs on every album, and this one is my favorite.

Aquaman's Lament

Aquaman gets a lot of undeserved hate.

PS- Also watched SLAYERS: The Motion Picture for the first time in years. Fell in love with the themesong "Midnight Blue" and listened to it so many times I got sick of it.

I didn't like their "5" album at first, but now I'm absolutely hooked on Gott Sein '04 and Augenblick. Gott Sein'04 is soooo much better than the original Gott Sein! The choral harmonics fucking own the song!

Megaherz - Gott sein 04

Quote
God, you who are in Heaven
I know what torments you
God, you who are in Heaven
I know what you're missing
God, you who are in Heaven
Come, don't leave us alone
Forgive us of our fault
Try to pardon us
God, you who are in Heaven
you have given us
your own flesh and blood
but what was that good for

Your kingdom does not come
and your will is not done
Not in Heaven and
of course not on Earth
It is not easy to be a god

God, you who are in Heaven
I know it is not easy
God, you who are in Heaven
I know you've had enough
God, you who are in Heaven
I know what moves you
Try to forgive us
Or is it already too late

I confess to God the almighty
and to all brothers and sisters
that I have refrained from good
and have done evil
I have sinned in
thoughts, words, and deeds
by my fault
by my own most grievous fault

"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" soundtrack by Trent Reznor.
I love to just chill out to moody, dark and horror-styled music like this.
Some of it is actually quite beautiful really.
Why, one song almost makes me want to cry as it reminds me of some dark times of my life that I somehow managed to escape from...
"I'm a Belmont, that's my job..."
