    Oh wow, thanks for that! I'd always thought I was just wrong or that it was unintentional, it's great to know there is some sort of intent behind it.

    I stand corrected, but I think it's just kind of thematic and not "universe" based. Like, I think HM is conceptually related to TDS

    But HM is directly and intentionally tied to TDS.

    I don't think what Rob is saying by "conceptual connections" is as definitive. It's more like HTDA is working with themes surrounding the end of times, not necessarily in the Year Zero universe. There would naturally be crossover in imagery and language.

    Or whatever HTDA considers their main themes. I've forgotten what Q said. But my point is that there's just crossover because they're similar concepts. But not directly and intentionally tied.

    Now that TR is shackle free from NIN touring, I wonder when an international HTDA tour will happen.
    Possibly not until a new album drops.

    You know, I hardly listen to An Omen as a record, as great as it is, it would've been better to have had more than 2 unique tracks to keep it fresh

    I don't think I've listened to it since Welcome Oblivion came out, though I occasionally listen to Speaking in Tongues and lament that its not on the album where it should be

    I spin it every now and then (more often than the KIT 12" anyway), but I just feel I can listen to Welcome Oblivion for the full sound but more songs. Was thinking this as I listened to it mind.

    I didn't like An Omen at all, the songs didn't work as well within the EP context in my opinion. I occasionally throw those extra songs into Welcome Oblivion's playlist though.

    The omen served one purpose to me and that was to lower my expectations for the LP... Which pleasantly surprised me. The same songs recontextualised worked much better on the album. Or maybe just having more tracks makes skipping KIT easier.

    I sort of despised KIT when it first came out but I've really come to love it. at first I thought it's just so textural that it needed headphones, but that never really worked. But somehow it was seeing it live -- where there's a real lack of texture -- that really made it click for me

    that said, I actually totally agree with you on the lowered expectations

    i'm randomly thinking that, yeah, kleiner is right...the first one was most definitely the dopest.
    it actually influenced me and the half japanese girl with whom i was playing open mics and living with at the time.
    we called ourselves Just Like You Imagined.
    i made nasty, sexy beats and played a mean guitar while she sang.
    i don't miss her, but goddamn i miss the music.

    ok, sorry...i'm rambling again.

    but good god, yes...fur-lined.

    Fur-Lined is still my favorite HTDA track. I think Welcome Oblivion is a better complete package, but even so, very few of the tracks on that album compare to the perfection of Fur-Lined.

    (I also vaguely remember a few people back on the old ETS being annoyed that it used the same drum machine as Only, as if projects involving Trent have never re-used things like that before.)

    Still annoyed we didn't get any HTDA in Europe when nearly the entire band was there for the NIN europe tour

    that was my favorite complaint. fuck you danny carey, for playing the same drumset on every song on lateralus. fuck you, van halen, for using the same guitar on almost every song. and mostly, fuck you 90s hip hop, for using an mpc on almost everything

    I miss the band, really... i'm so happy NIN returned last year but i want (late) 2014 (or maybe early 2015?) to be the year of the return of HTDA, obviously i want a new album and a tour (more than 13 shows please, and maybe come to Latin America...), loved "Welcome Oblivion" and i think the band has great potential to become a project of their own...

    Absolutely love A Drowning, with Ice Age second. How was I supposed to know that Mariqueen was going to come onstage with Trent at the second Sydney NIN show last March? Still spewing I went to the wrong show.

    Mariqueen did a photoshoot with the name Welcome Oblivion, kindling my hope for a new album http://www.sz-mag.com/news/2014/10/e...come-oblivion/

    And, loose relation, Ming & Ping's The Light of Day / The Darkness of Night is finally out on physical/digital, which Q gives vocals to on Chinatown http://mingping.com/shop/

    Yes but on an EP (that is half the album), and only digitally I think

    Somebody posted it on reddit somewhere and brings up an interesting theory on the HTDA Releases:

    How To Destroy Angels (EP)
    Omen (EP)
    Welcome Oblivion

    could their releases spell out the name? or is this just a coincidence?

    How to destroy angels
    An omen ep_
    Welcome oblivion

    Does anyone know what is going on technically speaking in the song Keep it Together?

    I am blown away by the subtle effect on Mariqueens voice. When she says "tremolo", yeah of course we hear the harmony, but underneath, her delay/echo comes out slightly more prominently. It sounds like a quiet little scattered loop of her voice that ends abruptly. What gear are they using for her voice? It looks like they've got Traktor set up too or something...

    The Vision Behind HTDA

    Does anyone know what the main idea or purpose behind HTDA is?

    I would really like to decipher their message/messages. Each song has a story to tell it seems but I'm finding it challenging to grasp it.

    The music video ( ) shows a lot of the tech and gear from the song, but I don't think they've gone into detail about what was used on that song (unlike The Believers, wish there was something like that for every track).

    I don't think there's a band concept - some songs are clearly about relationships, some about fan reactions (imo) and some about broader themes.
