Hands of Ruin

Hands of Ruin is my cinematic dark ambient and martial industrial music project. In the words of Merchants of Air:

Here is something that proves that dark ambient, neoclassical and martial industrial are far from dead. ‘Schism’ is an impressive and outstanding piece of work, one that definitely earns a place in between all your favorite Cold Meat Industry heroes.

Since the release of Schism in 2017, I’ve been working on a soundtrack to Murnau’s silent classic, Nosferatu. I’m hoping to release it in 2022 to coincide with the film’s centenary.
