Trent Reznor knows how to keep busy. Between producing Academy Award winning scores (The Social Network
) and being the frontman of Nine Inch Nail
s, Reznor found time alongside wife Mariqueen Maandig, film scorer Atticus Ross, and NIN graphic designer Rob Sheridan to create the Omen EP
, the second EP for the super-group How To Destroy Angels (HTDA)

The same could be same for Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5
, who's been keeping himself occupied with productions
, tumultuous relationships and general shit talking. But combine these over-achievers incredible talents and what do we get? Deadmau5's newest remix of HTDA titled 'Ice Age.'
With the addition of some bleeps and bass, Zimmerman turned the tiny voiced acoustic track to a glitched-out enhancement of its haunting lyrics. Simple, yet perfect. Compare and contrast the two versions here.
