Music Review #8: Industrial Music Done Right

So if you have been living under a rock for the past 28 years or just new to the industrial scene, Trent Reznor is the man with the plan.  Nine Inch Nails has been a force to be reckoned with since 88' and has not stopped since.  This new band How To Destroy Angles is not just Trent like Nine Inch Nails is but has partnered up with Atticus Ross, who has worked with Nine Inch Nails on such albums as With Teeth, Year Zero and Ghosts I -V and other bands such Korn, Coheed and Cambria and Union of Thieves.  Atticus also directed his first feature The Book Of Eli in 2010.  Trents wife Mariqueen Maandig Reznor who once played in the band West Indian Girl is the voice behind this project and does a very amazing job.  This EP, which is self titled is shy under 30 minutes, but still is something that I can't get enough of.


This album is hard to describe but brilliance is a word that keeps coming to mind.  The whole record is everything and more of what I was hoping from the first time I head the song "A Drowning" from iTunes and Youtube.  Mixture of synthesizers, guitars and unexpected bass lines keeps your attention without over stimulating you.   The best part of this band and Nine Inch Nails is that they will give you there music away for free because they know that that's what its all about.... The music.  So if you would like to have to EP and judge for yourself just visit there website (www.howtodestroyangels.com) for the free EP.


Summation: 5/5 because it's stellar and all the track are wonderful.


Favorite Tracks: Fur Lined, BBB and A Drowning
