Hallows Eve third album "Monument" (March 23rd, 1988) [Metal Blade Records] reminds me in some songs a lot of Metallica, especially ...And Justice for All (September 7, 1988) and Black Album (August 12, 1991)

The crunch and delivery is Metallica-ish on the Queen cover ("Sheer Heart Attack").
The stiff, army-like "Rot Gut" riffing and singing reminds me of AJFA and Back album.

"Monument" sounds like some riffs from the future AJFA and Black LP's..
"The Mighty Decibel", "The Righteous Ones", to me also sound like same commercial type metal used.

Maybe I am alone in thinking "Monument" had an influence, as most metalheads would never have heard the album, but a very good chance James and Lars would have been given a copy by their friend Brian Slagel, owner of Metal Blade.

I thought the same when I heard it, it reminded me a lot of the Anjustice for all album, especially the song Monument (to Nothing).

Maybe they heard that album, and the riffs stick to them, I don't know.


Cheers!!!!!!!!!!
