How to destroy angels_ – “Ice Age” Video

By Michael Nelson / November 28, 2012

Just yesterday we published our Deconstruction of Trent Reznor’s musical legacy, and in the second sentence, there was a reference to “Ice Age,” a song featured on An omen_, the new EP from Reznor’s band How to destroy angels_. And today? They drop a video for that very song! Freaky. (Perhaps … an omen, indeed? Or something?) Like the band’s last video, “Keep It Together,” there’s not much motion here, most of the focus is on haunting vocalist (and Reznor’s wife) Mariqueen Maandig, although the song’s acoustic instrumentation stands in stark contrast to the glitchy “Keep It Together.” Check it out below.
