like it was bound to suck, but what's most pathetic is the synth elements sound so much cheaper than the original, which was made almost 20 years ago

No thanks. I'd rather hear the Hands Like Houses cover instead.

That's the sound of finding a MIDI file of NIN's "Closer", importing it into your DAW, and just using your DAW's stock synth sounds.

With that being said, I like this band. Not so into this style of music anymore, but they've got something better going on than most cookie-cutter bands in this scene.
