Album Review

It’s hard to deny the influence of Trent Reznor on How to Destroy Angels, the group featuring the Nine Inch Nails mastermind, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, and his longtime collaborator Atticus Ross but HTDA isn’t quite NIN fronted by a female. Maandig’s presence isn’t incidental; having her as the focal point shifts the tone considerably, giving the music a dreamy quality even when things get quite gnarled and ugly, as they do on “Parasite.” Draped in twisted, processed guitar gunk, “Parasite” is recognizably Reznor’s, as is the electro-throb of “Fur Lined,” and the ominous undertow of “BBB,” but HTDA’s debut EP doesn’t consist of dressed-up leftovers from The Slip: some of Reznor’s obsessions remain recognizable, but having collaborators opens up the music and Maandig softens it, giving this EP a different feel despite some familiar sounds.

Oh My Life

My dreams are coming true! Everything I loved about NIN, with a female vocalist. I couldn't ask for anything more. The songs are hauntingly beautiful and wonderfully mixed. And since Trent is such an intelligent marketer, he has posted this very EP free on the band's website. Go download it there.

Get your NIN fix here!

If you are in the mood for darker ambient electronica, these tuns might just make your day. I've had The Space In Between, The Believers and A Drowning all on heavy rotation for the last few days, and have been enjoying it thoroughly. Great headphone music.

Thank You

Nine Inch Nails was putting out some of their best music with the last 3 albums (but honestly all NIN is excellent). So I was sad when Mr. Reznor put it to an end, because I wasn't sure if we would hear from him again. "The Space In Between" gives me goosebumps though! Mariqueen Maandig's voice adds another force to the sound, like a ghostly spirit. "Fur Lined" is a great track, and "Bbb" is KILLER, but my favourite is "Parasite" for some reason. Thank you for giving us the sound back Trent Reznor! We NEED IT!

Named after a 1984 Coil single, How to Destroy Angels features Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor, former West Indian Girl singer (and Reznor's wife) Mariqueen Maandig, and Atticus Ross. Work on the project began a few months after Nine Inch Nails' final show in September 2009, and the following spring, the group made their debut with the digital single A Drowning and a video for the song “The Space in Between,” which premiered on that May. Soon after, the band made their self-titled debut...
