Although dance orientated most of his songs have vocals and usually progress to a crescendo at or near the end. The writer of many music books and NY newspaper columnist of the Village Voice, Simon Reynolds called Oliver Chesler “My favorite contemporary American singer-songwriter.”. A wide range of influences from Depeche Mode to Leonard Cohen factor into Chesler’s song writing manifesting into a completely original sound. His ability to make song structured music work on the dance floor is a big key to his success. His vocal technique is quite original and unique. He also refuses not to stick in one genre so on any given record expect styles from indie new wave, electro, EBM, techno, to synthpunk.

Horrorist productions are known for being produced extremely well with lots of fancy tricks and effects. His music tech know how has led to interviews and endorsements by pro-audio companies such as TC Electronic, D16, Analogue Solutions and Linplug Instruments.

In 1997 Oliver Chesler started the hugely respected Things to Come Records. Originally a business decision to take control of his own royalties the label has also given The Horrorist and other TTC label artists freedom to produce the music they like. With a Publishing deal with Strengholt Music group (Netherlands). Oliver Chesler is one of the few artists and label-owners making something new, groundbreaking, and original that gets wider acclaim.

“Things To Come does exactly what the name suggests, and that gives the future something to look forward for…..” – Frankie Bones

The Horrorist is a sensational live act. A mixture of industrial attitude and punk style with synth-techno music. Playing a set that goes from minimal or new wave all the way to hardcore and everything in between, there is something for everyone. But the biggest thing about the Horrorist’s sets is the interactivity that comes with having a live performer that a crowd is capable of understanding. The show is comprised of Chesler’s in your face vocals, video projection and live drum machine and synth.

The Horrorist performs regularly around the world and has played in every major nightclub and for most major event organizations. He’s wowed crowds from LA to Malta. Definitely something else, check it out if at all possible!!

The Horrorist is one of those unique artists that only come around once in a while. He is a big influence on the electronic music scene and will be for years to come.
