Biography

Brooklyn NY, United States (2010 – present)

A Pale Horse Named Death is an American band based out of Brooklyn, New York. It was created by Sal Abruscato (a former drummer for Type O Negative) and produced / engineered by Matt Brown of Seventh Void / Uranium 235. The band released their debut album, And Hell Will Follow Me, in June 2010.

A Pale Horse Named Death is the brainchild of Brooklyn, NY native Sal Abruscato, and sounds like Alice in Chains mysteriously sneaking up behind Type O Negative with a butcher knife while being filmed for a future episode of “Law & Order”. Critical acclaim has been quick upon the announcement of the album’s June release.

Sal’s partner in crime on And Hell Will Follow Me is Matt Brown, sound engineer extraordinaire and guitarist of fellow NY band Seventh Void. “The chemistry between me and Matt is unique and flawless; very rare in today’s music. We are the murdering evil version of Lennon and McCartney,” says Abruscato.

Brown adds, “Sal asked me if I would help to take these songs to the next level. I took on this project for my friend, to find some closure in rough times. The music is just an extension of our friendship and our passion for creativity.”

The album artwork was done by Sam Shearon aka ‘Mister-Sam’, who has previously done work for Rob Zombie, Fear Factory and Rammstein, and features a 20 page booklet with artwork for each individual song. Additionally, the double LP version features bonus track called “Pick-Up Truck”.

Life of Agony’s Keith Caputo lent background vocals to four tracks and Lou Reed’s saxophonist Ulrich Krieger guests on “Die Alone”. Bobby Hambel from Biohazard - who also plays with the band live - played the guitar leads on three tunes.

    Abruscato's vocals remind me of Dope.

    This is heavier and doomier than AiC (which is already way more metal than "grunge"), I see the influence but this is just it, an influence. Aside from that, they really have their own sound, and I love it ! Too bad this band is not more known :/ . I hope they will become more famous in the future =).

    Didn't thought that I will say that but... Lay My Soul To Waste is even better than debut!
