In case you’ve not heard of How To Destroy Angels, they’re a dark down tempo trip-hop outfit featuring Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, Atticus Ross (who he created The Social Network & Girl With The Dragon Tattoo soundtracks winning an Oscar in the process) & Rob Sheridan, the group’s visionary art director.
If you’re a fan of Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, Björk or Nine Inch Nails obviously, you’ll find a lot to enjoy here in amongst their hypntoic electronica & ambient soundscapes.
Having recently teased us with their EP ‘An Omen’ late in 2012, they’re set to release their debut record on March 5 – it’s called ‘Welcome Oblivion’, which is the kind of title you’d expect from Reznor & co isn’t it? They’ve just wetted our taste buds by releasing the music video for ‘How Long?’ which is taken from the forthcoming record.
It’s eerie, creepy and certainly brooding – if the rest of the album is along similar lines, we could be in for a treat. Do let us know what you think my leaving a comment below.
