Welcome to the DEATH ENSEMBLE.
Once upon a dark and dreary time…
A love of horror and a fanatic appreciation for Slayer led me, by fate, to a position writing for Icons of Fright, one of the web’s most popular horror sites. What started with one convention review led to over 200 movie reviews, several con reports, and entertaining and informative interviews with some of the names in horror. After two years as a featured writer, I became the editor-in-chief for Icons of Fright for over a year. The site provided me a wonderful opportunity and helped me to establish myself as a “horror journalist” (haha!) on the net. I’m grateful for it.
After more than three years, it became evident that it was time to move on. And so I present to you the Death Ensemble. I’ve assembled a talented group of writers here, with plans of presenting you, the avid horror fan, content that is challenging, exciting and enjoyable. We’ll provide interviews and reviews, just like most of the other horror sites do. But we’ll also provide commentary on the horror scene, let you know what’s got us thinking enough to sit and write for you. And we’ve got my bloody child on display for you, the Hell of Fame, where we’ll give you our thoughts on the people and things that inspired us to be horror fans in the first place. We’re dedicated to bringing you only the best quality material. Or die by the sword trying.
So while you’re here, feel free to look around. This far South of Heaven, we’ve got plenty of dark and frightening corners for you to scope out.
