Eraser-Erased (Nine Inch Nails) Easter Egg - Erase Me!

Further down the Spiral:

If you listen to track eleven ("Erased, Over, Out") in fast forward, you will hear Trent screaming 'erase me' over and over. Also, on track 6 ("Eraser (Denial; Realization)") he says it twice: once at the beginning, and then again once toward the end.

I am certain this was completely intentional! Trent is a geneous like that. What amazed me was when I discovered it by accident... I was just sick of the track about half way through, and i hit fast forward and couldn't believe my ears! Way cool Trent!

I hate to tell you this, but Trent had nothing to do with the remix, other than providing the source material. The eraser remixes were done by John Balance, Peter Christopherson and Drew McDonald of Coil, and Danny Hyde. Furthermore, the fact that it's there, was intentional, and that it plays at the correct speed when you hit fast forward is also intentional.

I have listened to it and it does work. Trent is great for putting in hidden audio and other fun stuff like that. Check out all of your NIN CD's for strange noises.

?? This isn't any hidden egg, you can clearly hear it without fast forwarding. It may take him :45 to say it, but I think everybody knows what he is saying. Of course it is closer to real-time, but that all depends upon your equipment. Not every CD player fast forwards at the same rate. For instance, mine has a variable rate that gets faster the longer you fast forward. So he couldn't plan on it seeming to be spoken on everybody's machine, but he could try for the majority. I think it was meant to be heard as ambient sound, not to be discovered upon fast forwarding.

this is indeed true, but not neccesarily intentional. the samples are time stretced, and the fast forward effect is probably a side effect. probably... eric jplt.com

Nine Inch Nails has been my favorite band since i was in fifth grade.I love them and no other band has ever compared to them and i have listened to all of the cd's I've owned in full detail and i must admit i have never noticed this before until now. Trent i am so sorry.
