An Omen EP (EP)

An Omen EP by How To Destroy Angels
Released: Nov 2012
Label: Columbia
Although Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor joins wife Mariqueen Maandig in this band, Reznor and longtime collaborator Atticus Ross are the real soulmates here -- with their later NIN work and notable film scores, they've come to perfect that dark ambient sound that slowly snakes its way to the panic button in your brain. On their second EP, they keep that ominous mood hauntingly throbbing and Aphex Twin-like glitchy (see "On the Wing"). Mariqueen occasionally lends her sensual vocals to lure you in, like on "Ice Age," but don't fall for it: The group never gives you the satisfaction of a climax.
