Halloween's breakout album Tricks, Treats and Other Tales From The Crypt was recorded in 2002 with what has come to be known as the Halloween 4.0 lineup. The 4th iteration of the band featured founding vocalist Brian Thomas, Axe Slayer Donny Allen, Jason "JDawg" Rossvanes on drums, Tommy Vendetta Guitar and John "Sixpac" Guarascio on Bass. The lineup was actually not originally intended to be Halloween, but unbelievable fan support for Halloween almost forced their hand. The band worked tirelessly to record a mix of classic Halloween "hits" and a handful of new/unrecorded tracks. The band played several shows stateside before being signed to headline the Keep It True Festival in Germany. It was during this era that the band finally made a run for Europe. The band had amassed a large cult following in Europe, but never had a lineup or management to get the ball rolling. The great success and European media blitz that followed the release of Trick, Treats, and Other Tales From The Crypt is what propelled Halloween into the spotlight it still enjoys today. Though short lived, "Halloween 4.0" is undoubtedly the incarnation that got Halloween out of Detroit. Following the departure of several members the band recorded a live demo in Detroit in February 2004 titled Not Dead... In The Murder City.

Quote: "Soul cakes were small cakes baked as food for the deceased or offered for the salvation of their souls. They were therefore offered at funerals and feasts of the dead, laid on graves, or given to the poor as representatives of the dead. The baking of these soul cakes is a universal practice".
