Atlanta Metal Band Hallows Eve – Where Are They Now?

hallows eve band

Hollows Eve was a thrash metal band from Atlanta, Georgia. They first became known for the “Metal Merchants” song on Metal Massacre. Their debut, “Tales Of Terror” on Metal Blade, gained them a cult following. The follow-up albums Death and Insanity and Monument were solid thrash albums (in my opinion) but failed to gain the band any traction. “Monument” is now out-of-print.

Some Hallows Eve Facts You Might Not Know

  • On the Tales of Terror album, the band was a five-piece, with t with two guitar players one being Steve “Skullator” Shoemaker.
  • Skullator left the band after the Tales of Terroralbum because of creative differences. He was more into black metal.
  • The last live appearance monument era Hollow’s Eve ever made was for The Skullator’s benefit. In 1991 Steven was shot in a robbery attempt in Atlanta. Though struck in the head, Steven lived and now wears an eye patch.
  • Stacy Anderson performed in a band called DIN post-hollows Eve. He now owns a stump removal service in the Atlanta area.

Tragedy struck again — returning to Atlanta after their first tour, the van driver fell asleep, causing the van to swerve off the road, killing 2 and injuring 12. Stephen was critically injured. Now, like fellow musician Jeff Becerra, is confined to a wheelchair.
  • James Murphy played guitar in Hallows Eve briefly. He initially turned down Chuck’s offer to join Death, but was talked into accepting it by David Stuart.
