Nine Inch Nails fans have no doubt been eagerly anticipating the arrival of ‘An Omen,’ the new EP from How to Destroy Angels, ever since Trent Reznor’s latest project offered a taste of things to come with its self-titled debut EP in 2010. The six-track ‘An Omen’ includes ‘Keep It Together,’ which was released last month in video form, and a handful of new tunes that showcase the eclectic sonic tapestry that is HTDA.

It wouldn’t be off base to say that Angels sound like NIN with a female singer (Reznor’s wife, Mariqueen Maandig), but saying it’s only that would certainly be selling them short. ‘An Omen’ finds the crew branching out beyond the NIN blueprint in a variety of directions, from the acoustic, almost folky ‘Ice Age’ to the atmospheric, ethereal and Eno-esque ‘The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters’ to the, yes, admittedly NIN-like ‘Keep It Together.’

After a couple runs through ‘An Omen,’ we’re starting to eagerly anticipate the next step: a How to Destroy Angels full-length.
