Hallows Thrash Metal Band- Where Are They Now?

hallows eve band

Hallows Eve: Another Great Metal Band That Never Went Big – What Happened To Them?

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

How did that happen?

tales of terror

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 terror album because of creative differences. He was more into black metal.
  • The last live appearance monument era Hollows Eve ever made was for The Skullator 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.
  • Guitarist “David Stewart” is a successful photographer in the Atlanta area. Post hollows Eve Post he was in a band with two rappers named urban grind.
  • Tommy Stewart drives a taxi in the Atlanta area.
  • Tommy Stewart was briefly investigated by police after the death of his wife. No charges were ever filed.
  • Hallows Eve tried to reform with Ex-Rigot Mortis vocalist Doyle Bright. They announced a “comeback”, but nothing ever happened.
  • Steve “Skullator” Shoemaker was the only one who stayed active in music. He put together a black metal band called Wormreich. Tragedy struck again — returning to Atlanta after their first tour the driver of the van 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.
