In the mid- to late-’80s Chris moved to Chicago, quickly becoming a part of the music scene and briefly becoming a member of Die Warzau and Stabbing Westward.

He later reconnected with Trent Reznor, whom he met in the early 1980s, when they both were in Cleveland, Ohio’s local band The Exotic Birds. Chris also toured as a live drummer for KMFDM during the Money era tours in 1992. He is currently recording under the name Tweaker, and has released two albums under that name, The Attraction To All Things Uncertain and 2 A.M. Wakeup Call. Tweaker toured select North American dates with Skinny Puppy in 2004.

As a producer, remixer, or engineer, Vrenna has worked for Rammstein, The Rasmus, U2, Weezer, P.O.D., David Bowie, Cold, Underwater, Scarling., The Smashing Pumpkins, Hole, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Green Day, The Wallflowers and the band DIR EN GREY. He has also worked with the underground group Pigface, and produced songs and albums for underground groups TCR, Jack Off Jill, and Rasputina.

    Soundtrack by him was incredible! Music in sequel is quite good, but Chris did something unbelievable in first game.
