Our sound is often malicious, always eccentric. With the band's roots in electro-industrial and goth music, today Ironhand defies accurate categorization, composing music ranging from soft, quiet, orchestral pieces to full-out maniacal unholy war. The sound is set apart by their use of cancerous whispers, symphonic instruments, and a full arsenal of nailguns and power tools in lieu of traditional drums. Early albums reflected a deep, violent, anti-theistic sentiment, while recent works are about the will to grow, surpassing those that came before, and horrific scenes of violence and sadism.
ronhand was started by Jarod Summers and Dan Thompson in 2006 as a gothic industrial band. After Dan left on haitus to join the USMC, Jarod took the reigns of the project, focusing on aggressive Terror-EBM music. Joshua Krch joined the band in 2010, contibuting his guitar and synth skills. We are hard at work on our next full length album "THORAX" as well as focusing on out fully automated robotic power tool drumset, to be unveiled in coming music videos.
