Trent Reznor's How to Destroy Angels Prepare for Coming 'Ice Age'
Nine Inch Nails frontman hides out in a cabin with new band

Trent Reznor teamed up with The Road director John Hillcoat for How to Destroy Angels' new video for "Ice Age," resulting in a cold, dark environment that contrasts with the track's rustic folk sound. The cut from An Omen sounds delicate and inviting, but the video is barren and lonely, as lights flash outside and an impending high tide creeps toward the cabin. Found footage of marriages, children and doves flickers across the screen, but like the static that interjects, the NIN frontman and company are stuck in perpetual stasis, bracing for an apocalypse that will never come.
