Nosferatu - (2001)

Nash the Slash has a strong love of silent movies (his name comes from Laurel and Hardy's classic Do Detectives Think) and he has composed three other soundtracks for silent film classics (including his wonderful music for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari). However, this is the first soundtrack that he has committed to tape and released to his rabid fans. And it is fantastic. The music actually stands alone without viewing the film. It is a combination of several styles including classical, rock, electronica, and ambient. Slash is able to combine these genres and create his own atmospheric sounds with very strong melodies. This style differs from his instrumental work (such as Blind Windows) but is equally interesting and engaging. Fans of Slash will love this CD, and fans of soundtracks will undoubtedly find something of interest here. A brilliant work. (
