Trent Reznor rides again

How to Destroy Angels is a new project featuring NIN mainman Trent Reznor – it’s mostly quiet, moody, elegant, with touches of Reznor’s industrial synths and arrangements pleasing to the ear. The band (comprised of Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig on dreamy vocals, and NIN producer Atticus Ross) is offering a free six-track self-titled EP, or an upgraded version for US$2, at its website.

This clip for The Space In Between illustrates the style beautifully.

Parasite shakes things up a bit, with a Slip-like feel thanks to fuzz guitar and Reznor’s threatening vocals in the mix; Fur Lined is likewise upbeat but sans sharp edges.

The EP’s diversity and overall charm bodes well for the album – on its way!

  1. Wow! Amazing clip!
    This track sounded a little like NiN crossed with Sneaker Pimps to me.
    Shall definitely d/l the EP for a listen.
    Thanks for the heads-up.
