A Pale Horse Named Death
When Sal Abruscato started his own thang in the form of A Pale Horse Named Death back in 2010, I was on board early. Invisible Oranges was, I believe, the first place I heard about the former Type O Negative and Life Of Agony drummer’s foray into the frontman spot and I have a signed copy of the debut album And Hell Will Follow Me, ordered direct from the band before they received a US distribution deal, to show for it. It’s soulful, harrowing, heavy shit and I loved it. Everyone keeps coming up with the “Type O Negative crossed with Alice In Chains” comparison and it sticks because it’s true – but APHND can stand on it’s own four hooves, no doubt about that.
This month – in just a week, in fact, the new album Lay My Soul To Waste will be released. I interviewed Sal for Metal Underground about the new album last week and based on his responses and the three tracks I have heard so far I think it’s going to be really good. Two are embedded below, and the third premiered today on that bastion of metal hipsterism MetalSucks.
It’s been a while since I’ve been this excited about experiencing something that I know will be slit-your-wrists depressing.
