"Further Down the Spiral" (also known as "Halo 10" and "Halo 10 V2") is a remix album by Nine Inch Nails released in 1995. "Further Down the Spiral" is the tenth official Nine Inch Nails release and is the companion remix disc to "The Downward Spiral". There are two editions of this release, one denoted as "Halo 10" (released in the US) the other as "Halo 10 V2" (released in Japan and the UK), each containing a different set of tracks with much overlap between them. "Halo 10 V2" is also known for its rarity, being sold on eBay for more than $100.

It has become one of the most popular remix discs ever released by Nine Inch Nails and was certified gold, June 26th, 1996, for sales in excess of 500,000 copies in the US alone. It showed a more varied and experimental point of view to the original and boasted many high profile contributors/remixers including Aphex Twin, J. G. Thirlwell, Dave Navarro, and Coil.

This disc includes remixes of "Mr Self Destruct", "Piggy", "Hurt", "Eraser", and several extended songs. An interesting piece of trivia on one such song: when fast forwarding through "Erased, Over, Out" Reznor can be heard screaming "Erase Me" through the entire track. The 2003 Aphex Twin compilation "26 Mixes for Cash" contains shortened versions of "At The Heart of It All" and "The Beauty Of Being Numb".

"At the Heart of it All"

"At the Heart of It All" is an Aphex Twin track that appears on "Further Down the Spiral". Along with "The Beauty of Being Numb", it is not a remixed track from "The Downward Spiral" like the other tracks on "Further", but was created directly for the album by Aphex Twin. "At the Heart of It All" is an instrumental piece that begins with a metallic industrial drum-type beat, and eventually is interpolated with a haunting horn section that rises and falls throughout the remainder of the song. Due to its nature and title, it is commonly believed that the piece is a tribute or homage to a Coil piece of the same name from their 1984 LP "Scatology".Fact|date=March 2008
