Album Review : How To Destroy Angels

by on Sep.30, 2011, under Album Reviews, Free Music

Artist: How To Destroy Angels
Album: How To Destroy Angels
Lablel: Not on a label – Self Released
Review by: Adrian Onsen (aka Outsider)

Being a Trent Reznor fan from the early industrial days, I sometimes look him up to see what he’s been producing musically.

On June 1, 2010, there was a free EP released called How To Destroy Angels by the group with the same name, How to destroy Angels. The band is comprised of Trent, his wife Mariqueen Maandig-Reznor and Trent’s long-time collaborator Atticus Ross. The group is named after a 1984 Coil single of the same name.

The EP is very typical of Trent’s last few NIN albums (With Teeth, Year Zero), and many elements will be recognized throughout the 6 tracks on this EP. The mood of the album is downbeat and quite mellow for the most part. This EP pretty much sounds like another NIN album, just with a new band name and there’s no revolutionary changes with the exception of the majority of vocals being done by Mariqueen. If you enjoyed Trent’s NIN material of the past 10 years, this release will make a welcome addition to your Trent library. If you’ve been on the fence about Trent’s recent releases, this EP is unique enough that it certainly deserves a listen.

There’s a full album to be released sometime in 2011 (the fall?) which Trent refereed to as “more beat oriented” in a recent interview with Times Talk.

Download the free album from the How To Destroy Angels website or you can buy it from amazon.com for $5.94?

Free Music : Orchestrate the sixth season by Aliceffekt

by on Sep.27, 2011, under Free Music

After last saturday’s (24 September 2011) incredible performance at NeuInstallation, Aliceffekt has released another album. These are the tracks that were performed live.
I just learned that Aliceffekt always plays new music  during live sets, and that hundreds of hours were spent putting together this episode. Makes you appreciate the amount of work they put into playing live.

The free album can be obtained from their album page at for Orchestrate the sixth season.
