"Further Down The Spiral" (also known as Halo 10), released in 1995, contains various remixes of songs from The Downward Spiral.

The album also contains work from Aphex Twin (Richard D. James): At The Heart Of It All and the second half of The Beauty Of Being Numb. James allegedly claims to have never heard The Downward Spiral, thus revealing his contributions to be two original pieces instead of remixes. As well, "At The Heart Of It All" may be based on or influenced by the Coil song of the same name, the band being signed to Trent Reznor's Nothing Records prior to its fold.

All of the remixes from the US version of this album have been made available on Remix.nin.com through Reznor's official account as of November 24, 2007.

This Halo has yet to be officially released on vinyl in any configuration, and was only released on cassette as a promo in Germany. The same country also had a limited edition version in a black tin box with three pins.[1]
