'''''Closer To God''''' (also known as '''''[[Halo numbers|Halo 9]]'''''), released in on May 30, 1994, is an EP a [[Remixes|remix]] compilation released to promote the song "[[Closer]]" from the album ''[[The Downward Spiral (halo)|The Downward Spiral]].'' The UK releases do not bear a halo number. The "[[Closer#Closer (Thrust)|Thrust]]" remix of "Closer" was intended for this release, but was left off. [[Trent Reznor]] would later release it for free on [[]]. Another mix that was released on the unofficial download-only compilation ''[[Recoiled#Uncoiled|Uncoiled]]'', and later released semi-officially on ''[[Recoiled]]'', may have originally been planned for release on ''Closer To God''.

====Part 1==Artwork==Released in a digipack format with space The cover art is frequently misattributed to [[Russell Mills]], as he created the art for two CDsall other releases from ''The Downward Spiral'' period. It was actually done by photographer Joseph Cultice, though he is uncredited on the packaging.[http://popispersonal.tumblr.# "Closer"# "Closer" (Deviation)# "Closer" (Further Away)# "Closer" (Precursor)# "Closer" (Internal)com/post/14215317379]
====Part 2====In an interview with ''Revolver'' magazine[], Cultice elaborated on the photo shoot that resulted in the halo's cover:Released in <blockquote>"I never shot still lifes of bugs before. But I'd assisted a slimline case guy named Hans Neleman, who was lighting things with mirrors and little teeny hot lights and featured laying things between layers and layers of glass — that's like coffee and milkshakes and snot and dirt and stuff from the street. On this one the bug is right on top and sharp, but all that stuff below is different artwork from Part 1layers of junk on the glass.# "Closer To God"# "Heresy" (Blind)# "Memorabilia"# "March Of Remember that movie ''Interview With a [sic] Vampire''? It had just finished wrapping … The Fuckheads"guy that brought the bugs was part of the company that did all the animal wrangling for ''Interview With a [[Category:NIN Discography]sic]Vampire'' — all the alligators and all that. He brought boxes and boxes — like Ikea clear boxes — filled with millipedes and cockroaches. We shot like 50 different pictures of bugs, and this is the one that turned out to be the cover. Trent was there the whole day, because he wanted to hang out with the bugs."</blockquote>
