ALL Hallows Even is six local lads head thrashing their way to the top.

The Emerald-based band is heading to Melbourne in April to record its first five-track EP.

Bass player Jason Sandeman describes the band’s style as heavy metal, but a little different.

He said their goal was simple: “To play as many shows as we can.”

Jason wouldn’t divulge any of the original names of All Hallows Even but said its current name had a simple origin.

“We played our first show as a band on Halloween,” he said.

A little bit of research later and vocalist James discovered Halloween was originally called All Hallows Even.

Band members are Jason (bass), James (vocals), Ash (drums), John (lead guitar), Jake (keyboard and synth) and Chris (rhythm guitar). Five of the boys work in trades locally.

Despite having full-time jobs they still manage to find time to rehearse at least three times a week, and with the recording trip coming up they are meeting up to five times a week.

Since joining together in late 2008, the band has been writing original tracks, and playing as many local gigs as they can.

Jason admitted their heavy metal sound wasn’t for everyone but said they had received a lot of support from local venues and hoped it would continue.

“It’s been really good in Emerald,” he said.
