Puscifer are just hours away from the release of their new remix album, Existential Reckoning: Re-Wired, and today (March 30th), the theatrical art-rock troupe — helmed by TOOL and A Perfect Circle's Maynard James Keenan — offered up a final taste of the record, a reimagining of "Apocalyptical" by none other than Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The remix flips the energetic Devo-esque original into a ghostly, skittering elegy. Stream it above via its visualizer video.
"Sometimes it's just fun to break stuff," Keenan commented of the Re-Wired project. "Then you latch on to one familiar piece and build something entirely new."
Existential Reckoning: Re-Wired is due out tomorrow, March 31th, via Puscifer Entertainment/Alchemy Recordings/BMG. In addition to Reznor and Ross' contribution, the album includes remixes by TOOL's Justin Chancellor, Queens of the Stone Age's Troy Van Leeuwen, A Perfect Circle's Billy Howerdel and electro-rock duo Phantogram, among others.
