Sum­ma­ry

How to Destroy Angels is the debut extend­ed play by post-indus­tri­al group How to Destroy Angels. The six-song EP was released as a free down­load via the band’s web­site on June 1, 2010, and a retail CD was released on July 6, 2010. A “Hi-Def Upgrade” was also avail­able, with high­er qual­i­ty audio and the music video for the song “The Space in Between”, while “A Drown­ing” was offi­cial­ly released as a sin­gle.

As with many of Trent Reznor’s offi­cial releas­es, each is des­ig­nat­ed with a unique name and num­ber; this release is “SIG­IL 02”.

How To Destroy Angels starts off with a fair­ly upbeat song with a bru­tal music video called “The Space In Between”. Togeth­er with “A Drown­ing” these are the two songs that I believe will appeal to the pub­lic the most.

As with most of Reznor’s work, the self-titled EP con­sists main­ly of exper­i­men­tal tracks with a lot of breath­tak­ing synth’s. This time around, it has a fem­i­nine touch to it as Mariqueen Maandig Reznor is the heart of the band.

What I par­tic­u­lar­ly like about this EP is the ana­log style and feel of both the music and art­work. While many Nine Inch Nails fans claim How To Destroy Angels sounds just like Nine Inch Nails, it has a total­ly dif­fer­ent atmos­phere that needs a few lis­tens to appre­ci­ate the mag­ni­tude of the sound.

I enjoyed lis­ten­ing to How To Destroy Angels debut EP, and I feel it’s def­i­nite­ly a leap for­ward in mod­ern music, merg­ing ana­log and dig­i­tal into one enti­ty.
