    I think "How To Destroy Angels" is a mouthful, and i think something like "destroying Angles" would be much cooler

    But then the abbreviation would be DA and that's just stupid. HTDA (especially the way the logo is) looks way better.

    It can be a bother to say, especially if you have a stammer. HTDA works well though - and people who say HDA annoy me greatly.

    Random:

    Seeing the thread count go up, while not realizing that this thread didn't previously exist, just caused a massive surge of undue excitement.

    As far as their approach goes on the new album, I wonder if a complete news blackout would have been preferable to the slow trickle of hints that we've been getting over the past year. But surely we would be just as restless and desperate, if not more, had they (probably wisely) chosen to say nothing about the album, including vague release windows. I can't decide. Both methods are irritating.

    That's very obtuse of you...

    it's also a reference to the first Coil release (a name that trent adopted with the blessing of Peter Christopherson), so there's meaning behind it.

    But it's twice ​as many syllables!

    (Frankly, I don't care at all. Just putting it out there.)

    Every thread can be improved with a sprinkling of Arrested Development. Just as every painting can be improved with the inclusion of a dinosaur. (We'll let the Mona Lisa off as it predated the scientific description of the dinosauria by three centuries.)

    On topic, I'd love to know if they're still coming up with ideas for tweaking the LP's music, given that it's allegedly been finished for a while. They've got the unusual opportunity to continue tinkering after the horse would normally have bolted the stable, and a few months' perspective can give new insights into material.

    Not chastising, merely struggling to find something interesting to talk about in a gaping black hole where HTDA news goes to die.

    I think this album will end up being either one of the worst or one of the best projects Trent has worked on. I'm basing this on the length of time he's been working on it (remember when this was supposed to come out at the end of 2010?), the fact "tweaks" are being done, and that TR has stated how exciting it is to do something outside of the realm of NIN that has the possibility to fail (or something along those lines). My guess is he is either crafting it to be one of his masterpieces or he is completely unsure about the material and doesn't even know if he himself likes it. Thoughts?


    Oh yeah, I will call this a few days early: another month bites the dust. Jesus Christ, will this album ever come out?

    I hope the Deluxe version of the album (come one, we know there'll be one) has IYLSE? on it, and higher quality versions of those .ogg files of the making of The Believers from Wired. As a NIN fan, too much stuff is lost or hard to get due to being on a soundtrack or only released once on in an obscure medium, and HTDA has the chance to have a clean slate of making everything easy to get.

    I'm thrilled that he and his crew have taken a lot of time on it, for sure. His best stuff has always been made this way. And at this point the band is still such an unknown quantity; the EP was great but it didn't give us much of an idea of where they could go. The potential is there for the record to be great, I just wanna hear it.

    THERE IS NOTHING NEW IN THIS POST, THE LINK IS OLD OLD NEWS, DO NOT GET EXCITED!

    Okay, you may now proceed to scroll down



































    http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/05/process_song/

    I'm assuming everyones heard these but I only just decided to try and track it down since I heard it had more than just the actual song on it. The problem is, my laptop can't play the files without ripping the audio files from them. When I play them through VLC it cuts the length down completely. Anyone know where I can hear them all without using the actual mobile app?

    Chrome plays them happily, and if you have an issue just open in a new tab. If your computer can't play .ogg (which is odd, as it's a universal file format these days), just search for the codec for your media player of choice on google.

    Why thank you good sir. Chrome works perfectly.

    Although it always pains me when Chrome outdoes my beloved Firefox, I shall overlook it this time

    What if HTDA's LP is a double album, that's why it took so long? #wishfulthinking

    That might seem arrogant coming from a new band with their first full album.

    I'd love to see a double album, but between The Social Network, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Call of Duty, and possible Nine Inch Nails material, I don't think they've had the proper amount of time to put something like that together. I could be wrong (that would be a pretty good thing to be wrong about, hehe), but I imagine this will be a single album, probably around the same length as The Slip/Pretty Hate Machine.
