With echoing distortion and hypnotic strobes, the world's number one industrial band Nine Inch Nails dug deep into the pulse of Tel Aviv Wednesday night at the Exhibition Grounds open air stage.
Clad in black, Trent Reznor's 20 year-old creation, which captured the anti-establishment rage and angst of a whole generation, blinded the exhilarated crowd with a multi-media, conceptually visual show.
Behind a cage-like screen of visually distorted images, the band seemed to metamorphosize into the TV static illusion and through provocative songs such as 'Sin', 'March of the Pigs' and 'Closer', progressed through hard core, industrial and melodic sounds which have been their trademark ever since the late 80's.
Ending off with the renowned 'Hurt', the long-anticipated show culminated one of the most significant summers of rock performances this country has ever seen.
