New Jersey's HADES came on to the thrash metal scene in 1987 with the release of 'Resisting Success'.They received glowing reviews in all the major metal magazines. They followed up a year later with the cd 'If At First You Don't Succeed'. In America HADES performed countless shows opening for bands that included Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Nuclear Assault, Manowar, Overkill and Danzig. During the summer of 1989 HADES toured Europe for the first time. In the middle of the tour they decided to break up after the tour was over. All the hard work they had put in would never come to fruition. Alan Tecchio moved to Texas to join Watchtower. Dan Lorenzo started a doom band that he named Non-Fiction. Alan eventually rejoined up with Dan in Non-Fiction and they released 3 CDs and toured the world. In 1999 HADES got back together. Over the next three years HADES recorded three new cds for Metal Blade Records. They put in a strong performance at the Wacken Festival in 2000. Just as quickly they were gone once again.
