A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, the band featuring Brooklyn, New York native Sal Abruscato — who played drums on three TYPE O NEGATIVE albums (“Slow, Deep Hard”, “Origin Of The Feces”, “Bloody Kisses”), as well as four LIFE OF AGONY releases (“River Runs Red”, “Ugly”, “River Runs Again”, “Broken Valley”) — on guitar and vocals, will release its sophomore album on May 27, 2013 via Steamhammer/SPV. The group has once again commissioned famed artist Sam Shearon (a.k.a. Mister-Sam; ROB ZOMBIE, FEAR FACTORY, RAMMSTEIN) to create the artwork for the CD, which will be mastered on January 17 by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York City. Abruscato states: “I can now say with satisfaction that we have created a very deep, dark, sonically brutal album. I can’t wait for all of you wonderful fans to hear it.”
Regarding the musical direction of A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH‘s forthcoming album, Abruscato said: “The sound has evolved and become a bit more orchestrated. More harmony work has been done on this album, including new elements such as a Hammond B3 organ and piano. To me, the album has an even darker sound and feel than the first one.”
He continued: “The new album is a natural progression in songwriting and vocals yet keeping continuity with the first album musically and artistically. Fans of our first album will find all the traits they love melded with even bigger production and mastering.”
A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH‘s debut album, “And Hell Will Follow Me”, came out in 2011.
The band made its live debut on February 20, 2011 at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey as the support act for MONSTER MAGNET and SEVENTH VOID.
