How to Destroy Angels

How to Destroy Angels
Self-released
[Three stars]

Rolling Stone IN Aug 10, 2010

Having wrestled with world annihilation in Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor is dealing with his scariest subject ever: marriage. His new trio is fronted by his wife, Mariqueen Maandig, and married life doesn’t exactly sound like bliss. In an eerily comatose voice, Maandig imagines the couple’s guts getting ripped out onstage: “Opened up, proudly on display/What we tried so hard to hide away.” Reznor’s torture-device beats only magnify the push-pull between them. “Yes, now I need you,” Maandig finally admits. Which might be sweet, if that song wasn’t called ”˜Parasite.’

Key Tracks: “The Space in Between,” “Fur Lined”
