    Oh. Shit. Listening to it again right now and...
    It's been far too long since i've listened to this record, and i didn't listen to it enough times!
    All i really had in my head was the "breath of fresh air part."
    Yes, it's a great track and a great album. I love the way it sounds on a good car stereo, with sounds both assaulting and caressing you from all angles.

    I may be in the minority here, but i loved Keep it Together and the second EP in general.
    For me, though, their strongest work is on the first EP. Again, however, i need to bump the LP again and more often.
    At any rate, they have a GREAT set. I wouldn't mind a few tour dates BEFORE they release another album (i never caught a show.)

    What @eversonpoe said!

    "IDONTKNOWIFYOUCANHEARMEOVERTHIS!"

    It kind of reminds me of the desperation in We're In This Together.

    The NIN/HTDA store needs a serious update. I've been upgrading as much of my music to lossless sources as possible, so I went to buy An Omen through the site (since it said it was available in either Apple Lossless or FLAC format). Paid my money, followed the link to download it, and come to find out that there's no way to download anything but the MP3 version, which I already own. Thankfully it was only five bucks, but I'm still really annoyed about that. There also appears to be no way to contact them about it either, which I find incredibly frustrating. I guess a strongly worded tweet will have to do!

    Having just celebrated the 3rd anniversary of the HtDA Chicago show but ALSO having been on the road the whole time since, I have almost NO IDEA what's up with the project.

    Did it ever get a physical DVD/BD release?

    I was on the official page and links aren't working. Is HTDA dead?

    I love this HTDA "Last person on Earth" (name from store.nin.com) picture, I bought that t-shirt, I set it as background image in my Facebook profile (I returned recently after many years to stalk future wives), and I also have it set on cumputers as background and lock screen. So when coworker passes by I sometimes point at it saying "This is me, this is how I feel", and we both laugh. But I know better, in my heart, I know better. And we told ourselves it didn't... wait, that's another story. :-)

    PS: Looking for this picture, it's funny (?) to see google result "How to destroy angels. On tour now." :-) :-(

    So this is funny. I never saw the final scene of the How Long video because i am button happy and have always turned it off too fast.

    I saw it the other day and was like HOLY shit. Those last few seconds change the possible interpretations DRASTICALly.

    We wound up, those of us who live here, having a spirited discussion about it, the sort of discussion you would find in a college ethics course, re the protagonist's justification or lack thereof .

    The Last Person on Earth and Black Mirror shirts are great. I still wear both of them all the time.

    The intro to parasite reminds me of the intro to Social Deception by Skinny Puppy.

    I'm still kind of bummed that they never played "Is Your Love Strong Enough?" on their tour. I feel like it would have fit in really well right before they played "A Drowning".

    It's, uh, kinda interesting that the deadmau5 mix of Ice Age is the top song on How To Destroy Angels' Google Play Music page. I'd actually be kind of insulting if I were an artist and that were the case. What is the top song on their Spotify page?

    HTDA is too gray, gloomy and ominous for me to listen to. #random

    Welcome Oblivion still seems like a weird and extremely depressed, post-apocalypse offshoot of Year Zero to me

    Yup.
    I think it IS that.

    Welcome Oblivion is not meant to be listened to with a clear mind.

    We Fade Away brings people closer.

    The Space In Between. Deadmau5 remix is the 2nd most listened to track after that one though...

    If HTDA is even still a thing, then I think Rob's left it. I reckon, from recent interviews, that he's cut all ties with his former life for a while. Good luck to him.

    Thematically I think Welcome Oblivion fits 2017 so much better than it fit 2013. It's really resonated with me in a way I don't remember it doing at release or in the years since. Strings and Attractors has got to be one of the most beautiful things Trent's worked on. He and Mariqueen's vocal harmony in the chorus is flawless stuff, and I hope her mention of next year potentially bringing more HTDA ends up being accurate -- the themes of apocalypse, digital detachment, noise as language and language as noise and the exploration of feeling like we're on the edge of losing our individual identities are all very fitting to right now and I'd love to see them explore more of this headspace and sound.

    HTDA confession: it took me five (well, almost) years to discover that Unintended Consequences was a thing. I'm kind of addicted to it now. Wish there was more stuff like this and the Conversation With demos around.

    Pretty sure it was one of the songs exclusive to the vinyl tracklisting since I have it on my hard drive ripped from the white label CD but I honestly don't know the standard CD tracklisting.

    I mentioned a while back that I’d love to see HTDA cover “How Soon is Now?”


    I still stand by that.

    some humour: friends of mine had a band called the aquanettas (were sort of like the bangles) & somehow they were booked to open for NIN in the early days i think in florida. predictably, that sort of music didn't go over real well. my friend's said it was like being in "children of the corn", haha.
