Artist: Hallows Eve
Album: Tales Of Terror
Genre: Thrash Metal
Second tier, second generation thrash that shows the unstable, maturing state of metal in 1985. Bands took cues from Slayer, Metallica, etc., and often yielded uneven results. Hallows Eve is the perfect example of an uneven melange of both writing and quality. The album instantly rips with the best song they ever penned in “Plunging To Megadeath” and creates the illusion of greatness to come. What you get is a band that didn’t consistently achieve the devastating sounds they were capable of generating. Surprisingly, each album followed the same unbalanced path; songs you love and others that make you wonder why you’re spending time listening to them and not to “Reign In Blood” for the 200th time. Check it out, but not essential.
