AFI - All Hallows EP (Cover Artwork)


All Hallows EP (1999)


There was stillness. Looking into others' eyes, you could see a film in the air. The sun was bright and the sky was blue, but it was a dark day.

The feeling of loss swept over this nation around 9 am this morning, September 11, 2001. It's everywhere. Every tv. channel, every radio station, every conversation, every breath. Violence reaps death.

I couldn't take it anymore. I had to get in my car and drive, somewhere. What was in my stereo? This ep.

Four dark, sadistic songs, all at breakneck speed. 'Halloween' by the Misfits, and the ironic 'The Boy Who Destroyed The World' are featured, along with 'Total Immortal' and 'Fall Children'.

It was perfect for the day. Dark and pissed off, just how I was feeling. AFI helped vent the frustration oddly enough with songs about death. I have a new perspective of this record.
