Ruairi O’Baoighill

In the tradition of the dark and magickal hills of eireland where we creatures dwell dripping in dark drone ambient emotion… Walk down a creepy corridor of nightmares and intrigue with visions of being lead to a sacrificial chamber, wherein stands a dark hooded figure awaiting your presence…

Species 2016 were animated to reveal the captivating sounds and visuals of Ruairi O’Baoighill (pronounced Rue-ri O Vay-ill) creating music in this field since 2010. In that time he has self released two albums, “-87” and “Walpurgis”, and two E.P’s, “Killing Ground” and “Cielo Drive”. His third album “The Faceless One” was released on Feathered Coyote Records in June 2014 and his second album Walpurgis was recently re-released on Black Death Industry along with a spilt album with Greek Group Catacombs of Doom. His work has also been featured on various compilations from Feathered Coyote Records, Black Death Industry, Xenomorph Records and Ignis Fatum. His work features themes from Ritual Ambience and Drone and is strongly influenced by Horror Films, the Occult and the darker side of human nature. He works primarily with various instruments, vocals, found sound and field recordings which he uses to create dark pieces by means of digital manipulation.

Species 2016 saw Ruairí executed a hauntingly dark ambient sound unlike anything we have heard before, powerful and provocative; his sonic experience captured the strength and mysticism of the heathen Celts, combining it with the depravity of our Species.

Ruairí warped an equally eerie atmosphere through his unique use of disturbing visuals, ghostly smoke-machine effects, with an ominous stage presence as mysterious hooded figure at his candle lit alter of sound.
