When you look at the cover art for A Pale Horse Named Death’s sophomore album, what is the first thing you think of? For me, it was death metal. The art was so exceptionally well done, though, that I hopped on the computer to see what they sounded like. I was shocked to discover that this band features members of Type O Negative. Sal Abruscato, Type O Negative’s drummer on the albums Slow Deep and Hard, The Origin of the Feces, and Bloody Kisses. It also features Johnny Kelly, Type O Negative’s drummer who replaced Sal Abruscato.
The sound on the two songs below is very reminiscent of Type O Negative, while Sal’s vocals sound a bit like Layne Staley, deceased former vocalist for Alice in Chains. So, without further ado, I present to you two tracks off their album Lay My Soul to Waste:
I have picked up the CD, and it is amazing. I cannot stop listening to it. I highly recommend it. Stay tuned for a full review soon!
