Music for the bottom of your heart...


Stand up and listen to your soul, it's waiting to be sold...

"the devil." An unconventional musician and vivid film score composer from Minneapolis, has begun to make his mark in the world of ambient soundscapes and instrumental oddities.

Established in 2005 and born out of an experiment with expression, the devil has created a sound that is pleasantly familiar to the ear. The devil combines a deep history of musical influence and an even deeper sense of the darker side of life's emotions to create intensely visual and textured compositions. The songs are reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails' "Ghosts I-IV" compilation, Ministry's darker instrumental music, and Dead Can Dance. While these artists can be named as musical influences, the music of the devil is not a directly descended product of said artists.

The devil continues to add both film score credits and traditional music credits to his growing resume. Please see the 'discography' section for an up-to-date list of credits and notable accomplishments.

After reading through this profile and listening to a song or two, please take a minute to contact the devil, he'd be more than happy to assist you.
