Album Review: How To Destroy Angels - Welcome Oblivion

Thursday 14th March, 2013 9:20AM

Trent Reznor is a big name in music, it's one that always inspires interest no matter what the trailblazer may be up to. It is with this interest that many will come to experience his post-Nine Inch Nails project How To Destroy Angels where he is joined by Atticus Ross, Rob Sheridan (both Nine Inch Nails collaborators), and Mrs Reznor herself, Mariqueen Maandig - it will also be how they come to judge it. Over the course of two EPs (self-titled from 2010 and An Omen in 2012) they have laid down the groundwork for their sonic manifesto: chilly electronics, soothing female vocals, and a nameless wordless sense of dread. Now they have unleashed Welcome Oblivion unto the world, their debut full length album, and even before it existed it was an entity burdened by some fairly heavy expectations which it struggles to overcome.
