Honored to work for, with and-or promote for: 

Days of the Dead

Days of the Dead is a by the fans, for the fans, convention which had its inaugural show July 1st - 3rd, 2011, at the Wyndham Indianapolis West, located in Indianapolis, IN. The brainchild of Adolfo "Mr. Chainsaw: Dorta (From Dusk till Con), Ricardo "Del Muerto" Lara (From Dusk Till Con, 8 Bit Monsters), and Bill Philputt (Re-Evolution Management).

Days of the Dead's primary goal is to bring back the concept of the genre convention being a welcoming communal gathering of like minded friends and fans and not just another "pay-and-go" autograph show that has become an all too common (and impersonal) experience in the convention scene.

Chock full of special events tailored just for the fans, an active after hours scene of horror themed parties, and a massive guest list of the hottest celebrity guests, artists, and up and coming independent film makers, Days of the Dead has already began rewriting the script and setting the bar for what a true horror convention weekend should look like.

February - Atlanta. GA. 

May - Charlotte, NC.

June - Indianapolis, IN.

September - Louisville, KY.

November - Chicago, IL. 

more cities to be announced, in future...

Full Terror Assault

Full Terror Assault is the first “TRUE” European style Open Air Festival for extreme music fans right here in the USA. This is NOT a pay to play event and is independently run by a small team of passionate folks, including a promoter who has been involved in the “underground” and extreme music for over 20 years.

We know many fans have never had the chance to attend an event like this and we want to change that.
Here is what you will find within: An amazing scenic wooded camping area right on festival grounds with over 100 acres containing lakes and a beach. Three(3) days of all things metal on 2 stages, with bands representing all genres of metal and anything with attitude.

If that isn’t enough, FTA will have campsite contests, costume contests, metal market with vendors, food vendors, after parties with bands, and a DJ to keep the party going all night.  This event is designed to bring bands, vendors, and fans together for a celebration of extreme music without breaking your wallet.  MAXIMUM BRUTALITY@MAXIMUM FRUGALITY!

Midnight's Children

Founder/Photographer/Filmmaker   -   Emily Harris 

Technically I have been shooting bands since I was 18, but not really professionally until I did a thesis on metal for grad school starting in 2012. During grad school, I discovered how much passion I have for capturing not only bands but the metal community as a whole and have spent all of my time and money traveling the globe documenting metal through photography and by making films.  After shooting for several online metal blogs I decided it was time for me to start one of my own.  My goal for this site is for it to be informative but fun, and to celebrate all things dark:  music, photography, art, literature,etc.  With my global connections to fans everywhere, I hope to bring some different perspectives and insights into what is happening in the global dark arts community through this site. After all, music and art are what connect us.

Captain and Maybelle

The amazing Chris and Elaina Steele: 

This dynamic duo has appeared at Ripley's Believe It or Not!, on "America's Got Talent" Season 6, Six Flags Over Georgia's Annual Fright Fest, "Atlanta & Co.", "The Soup", Coney Island's Sideshows by the Seashore, Days of the Dead Convention and more!

Featured in July 2017's Ripley's Believe it or Not 


The Captain has had a love for sideshow and circus entertainment since his youth. After graduating high school, he set out from his hometown of Douglasville, Georgia and explored the country. He eventually got into the body modification industry but never forgot his love of sideshow. After opening and running two successful piercing studios in South Carolina, he met and fell in love with Maybelle and moved back to his hometown to start his family.

Working at a tattoo studio paid the bills, but the Captain wanted more. Thus began his pursuit of fulfilling his childhood dream of being a "working act" circus performer. While most wives would balk at the thought, Maybelle not only gave her blessing but also jumped in feet first alongside the Captain and became part of his act.

The Captain and Maybelle currently reside in Georgia with their two daughters, Payton and Ava, and their basset hound, Hoss. The Captain works full time as shop manager at a Psycho Tattoo Studio and has been a body piercer since 1994. Maybelle is a full-time homemaker, PTA Co-President and wife extraordinaire!

Dan Harding Art

Artist: Dan Harding

(Creator of the NEI amazing logo painting. Thank you Dan) 

Dan was born and raised in central New Jersey where he grew up with a passion for anything to do with horror. Early on reading old horror zines , comics and books as well as an unhealthy amount of watching television. This sparked his interest in art, wanting to create his own monsters. He spent his teenage years doing art for friends and bands until he moved to PA for quite a few years where art had taken a back seat to life. In the late 90’s he began to feel the urge to get back into art so he started to pick up oil painting.

Never having any formal training it was a long process but he loved every minute of it. He eventually began to get jobs doing CCG art and magazine and book covers here in the US as well as Europe and Canada. He eventually moved back to NJ where he still resides continuing to paint and work in fine art restoration.

However, Dan has never been content with his work..

 " I feel like I was always so suppressed by creating what publishers and game companies wanted to see that I began to get stale with art. I never really painted something I thought was cool. The past couple of years I have begun to paint what is inside me and I am excited about where my work is heading!"

Please check out his amazing art!

Pyramid Gallery

Opened in 2001, Featuring the intricately designed music box replicas of French architect, artisan and designer Philip LeMarchand.

The boxes, known in some circles as LeMarchand Boxes, were each one of a kind creations which were also puzzles, with the answer to one's ultimate hearts desire as their solution.

Posthumously credited as possibly one of the most prolific, if undiscovered, mass murderers in the history of the modern world, Philip LeMarchand first became known for his creation of bizarre, intricately designed music boxes which quickly became the rage of Europe.
