How to destroy angels_ release new music video for “Ice Age”

How to destroy angels_ have released a new music video for arguably the best song on their new EP, “Ice Age”.  The video takes us into a dreary cabin with the full band seen performing meticulously.  The whole crew is there, but Mariqueen is the obvious star of this one.  Rob Sheridan’s artistic touch is all over the video as well, and it all comes together as a hauntingly creepy and mysterious work of art just like the track that inspired it.  Some familiar themes that Trent Reznor has incorporated for years are evident as well.  Check it out for yourself here.
