Six Greatest Halloween Metal Songs

With All Hallows’ Eve quickly approaching, we thought we’d compile a list of the greatest metal tracks with a spooky Halloween spirit to them. Not all are about Halloween per se, but they are great songs to crank up and get into the Halloween mood.

“Black No. 1 (Little Miss Scare-All)” – Type O Negative

The most well-know Type O Negative song is found on the Bloody Kisses album. With late vocalist Peter Steele’s trademark vampiric tones and the band’s doomy sound, you can’t go wrong. And the gothic atmosphere of this track is all the more strong when backed by lyrics like “It’s All Hallows’ Eve, the moon is full. Will she trick or treat? I bet she will.”

“Halloween” by Helloween

An epic, 13-minute opus from 1987’s Keeper of the Seven Keys: Part II record, this song from the German power metal band blends heavy power chords with melodic vocals and more than just a hint of Mercyful Fate influence. The foreboding lyrics suggest evil spirits are about on Halloween coming to get all those wandering about on the darkened streets.

“Night of the Living Dead” – Misfits

Inspired by the horror movie of the same name, “Night of the Living Dead” is a Misfits classic from Walk Among Us. It’s Glenn Danzig writing about the zombie apocalypse, which today would feature well on The Walking Dead. You gotta have some good, punky horror music on Halloween.

“Bark at the Moon” – Ozzy Osbourne

Ozzy’s classic 1983 ode to werewolves and darkness belongs on any Halloween music list. With one of Jake E. Lee’s greatest riffs carrying the song at a frantic pace, Ozzy delivers the werewolf howls fit for All Hallows’ Eve along with some dark lyrics including “Those that the Beast is looking for listen in awe and you’ll hear him ….. Bark at the Moon.”

“Black Sabbath” by Black Sabbath

Simply put, if you want to scare any trick or treaters, put this song on repeat so it’s within earshot of kids when they come to the door.. The tolling of the bell in the rain, Tony Iommi’s evil riff along with Ozzy’s vocals are enough to scare any kid out of their costume. The original heavy metal song of evil works perfectly as a Halloween masterpiece.

“Halloween” by King Diamond

Off King Diamond’s 1986 debut album Fatal Portrait, “Halloweeen” is a tour de force of classic heavy metal, featuring King Diamond’s evil, high-pitched wail and some tasty, crunchy guitar riffs. It’s the perfect mix of melody and heavy. Definitely add this one to your Halloween metal playlist!

Uber Chronicles: Adventure With Deborah

I ordered the Uber when I arrived. I tried to contact the driver only to find that the option to call him was not available; I could only send him a text. I informed him that I was visually impaired and standing by the curb. Just to make sure, I also told him that visually impaired meant that I could not see.

ATA Review of AGENDA, Long Beach

Inclusiveness:  It’s what AGENDA is all about, and what makes it a special kind of tradeshow. No matter who you are, you can stand side by side with companies like the Hundreds, 10 Deep, or Chinatown Market and compete with the same.  That’s the draw. 

My Love/Hate Relationship With #Supreme - Photoshoot with @ymanibarbee @adore.eu and Essay

Like it or not, Supreme will always be the litmus for streetwear.  For old streetwear heads like me, there continues to be a love / hate relationship with Supreme.  About a year ago, I was driving home from work and one of the neighbor kids (usually dressed head to toe in Pac Sun or even worse, Dallas Cowboys gear), cruised by me, riding a Razor scooter, with a mohawk helmet, wearing a Supreme box logo hoodie.  I lost concentration and almost drove my car into the kids playing basketball in the driveway a few houses up.
