While in the process of re-building my 80's vinyl collections on digital, I suddenly remembered Hallows Eve. For those considering Hallows Eve, this is the disk to get if you buy only one. I forgot how good it was, and even without being digitally re-mastered, the CD conversion almost makes it sound as such. This would have gotten only 3 1/2 stars if this were an option...not so much for Hallows Eve's performance...but due to a not-insignificant track discrepancy. As the tracks lay out, D.I.E. is actually merged into a continuation of Track 6- Suicide, thus making Track 7 Attack of the Iguana (listed track 8). This might seem superficial to the layperson, however D.I.E. was, as I recall, one of the main "hits" of this album, where suicide was rather Punk/ S.O.D/ Suicidal Tendencies influenced filler. Now one must select track 6 and fast forward past suicide to get to one of the main gems that we all bought the vinyl for way back when.

Death and Insanity is different from a lot of its genres' music that came out in the 80's. For the style (which could be considered thrash, heavy metal, speed metal...) it's full of mature arrangements and good musicianship. It has a raw-play from the heart-no holds barred feel. The whole album has a continuity from beginning to end. The opening, memorable riff is brought back in a fade in-fade out at the end. Every song holds up and stands on it's own.

Stacy's voice is memorable for it's distinct tone. He also can add a great growl in places that fits the music perfectly.

There are no production differences in any song which adds to the homogenity of the album. The production is not the best, but it's perfect for this album. It has it's own sound and shouldn't be tampered with.

When you can talk about death and insanity in a mature way with melody, crunchy riffs, and without a "kill you mother" attitude, you got a winner.

One of the most underrated bands of the 80's metal scene and a truely classic album.
