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.
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.
Lablel: Independant – Free Download
Review by: Outsider
At only 5 tracks long this release of moody, dark and sometimes stompy creations makes for an amazing instrumental album with a unique history.
Subtle elements of dubstep, trance, and ambient are mixed into this electro industrial release, which only add to the uniqueness of the sound. The lack of vocals is understandable considering the limitations the artist had and yet doesn’t take away at all from the over all experience.
When Cellmod lost access to his studio space he set forth to produce an EP on his iPhone 4 and Blip Interactive’s NanoStudio app. The album is amazing in it’s own right, but to know it was made entirely on an iPhone, one can only amaze at the artist’s dedication, as well as how far software has been pushed on a hand held smartphone
Artist’s blog entry regarding using his smartphone as a the only audio editing tool.
The good folks at Metropolis records have put together a FREE 8 track record showcasing some of the industrial bands on that label. The album is a free download at Amazon.com.
There’s tracks by Electric Six, 16 Volt, Front Line Assembly, Funker Vogt, :Wumpscut:, And One, Covenant and Meat Beat Manifesto.
Give it a download and a listen. The price is certainly right.
Artist Aliceffekt out of Quebec, Canada has released a new album. This is a compilation of the tracks he played live at the Kinetik Festival on May 23, 2011. As with all his albums, they are free so grab your copy today.
If you loved his earlier material, you will love this album. The infusion of live cello and guitar in some of the tracks brings a brilliant fusion to his electronic edge.
