How to Destroy Angels (EP)

In case you missed the brief update I tried to slip into my last post about How to Destroy Angels, their eponymous EP can now be downloaded for free (at the time of that post I didn't know how they would be distributing the EP; the information was only made public the day later).  All you need to do is head to their online store and enter your email address, and the download link will be sent to you.

The basic sound of the EP is Nine Inch Nails with female vocals.  I like it a lot - as any regular reader of this blog knows, I am a huge NIN fan, and hearing so many trademark NIN sounds (like syncopated drum beats, distorted synthesizers, and beautiful piano melodies) with Mariqueen's often hushed and fragile vocals is a nice change of pace.  Trent Reznor has stated that the band's next release will sound "more focused", so perhaps the EP may be best considered as a demo of sorts. but it's a good one.

The 6 songs are encoded as 320 kbps MP3s, and the zip file containing them weighs in at about 62.3 MB.  Happy listening!
