Signs of progress on new NIN material?

KhrYst from Amenti Suncrown posted a notable bit of information on the newsgroup alt.music.nin over the weekend. Take it as you will, remember - it's just a post on the internet."Anyone that read my post about our free cd realizes that Tom Baker who masters all the NIN stuff also mastered our project.....and that being said...I hate to open a can of worms but the info about NIN not having a new stuff going on is completely false.Trent was just here in LA last week with Tom Baker working on some new material...So, keep your eyes and ears open.. :o)"Quickie explanation: Mastering is a finalizing process that occurs just before pressing an album. Compressing and limiting the levels (making the whole album properly loud) and running it through a real precise equalizer - giving the album a feel of sonic continuity.Still, don't get your hopes chalked up for anything too soon, it's best to wait until you see concrete things coming through official channels.
