Trent Reznor’s new project has just released an EP, which is available for free on the How to Destroy Angels website. For $2, you can download the EP in lossless quality, including FLAC and other popular HD Audio formats. I really like the sound of this EP. It reminds me a lot of some of great NIN work of the past. Trent’s wife has definitely got an interesting voice.
Great song by Trent Reznor’s new outfit How to Destroy Angels. Their eponymous EP will be released this summer.
You can listen to the first track, A Drowning, here. I really like it as well.
The music of Nine Inch Nails has reportedly been used by the U.S. military as music torture to break down the resolve of detainees. Reznor objected to the use of his music in this way with the following message on the front page of the Nine Inch Nails website: “It’s difficult for me to imagine anything more profoundly insulting, demeaning and enraging than discovering music you’ve put your heart and soul into creating has been used for purposes of torture. If there are any legal options that can be realistically taken they will be aggressively pursued, with any potential monetary gains donated to human rights charities. Thank GOD this country has appeared to side with reason and we can put the Bush administration’s reign of power, greed, lawlessness and madness behind us.”
[NIИ] redeemed itself in my opinion with the release of its subsequent albums after The Fragile [’99]. While the album wasn’t that bad, it was a disappointment after Broken/Fixed, The Downward Spiral/Further Down the Spiral, and naturally Pretty Hate Machine. Although Broken is kind of a one-trick pony, I sincerely love those songs, especially Gave Up. The accompanying video was also very interesting, although slightly/moderately disturbing. I’ve seen [NIИ] a few times in Montreal. It’s quite an experience to see them live.
Naturally, I have been a minimal techno DJ in the past, so Ghosts I-IV was really right up my alley. I loved that disc. If you find that How to Destroy Angels video disturbing, don’t watch the Broken videos…
