Hallows Eve bassist Tommy Stewart checked in with the following comment about the album: “‘Tales Of Terror‘ launched Hallows Eve with a bang! We were a small tribe of street kids full of passion, anger, joy, and the unbridled frustrations of youth at the same time. We wanted to channel all that energy by screaming at the world and that was ‘Tales Of Terror‘.”
