LIFE OF AGONY/Ex-TYPE O NEGATIVE Drummer Says Illegal Downloading Is Killing Music

Jo Schüftan of Horns Up Rocks! recently conducted an interview with LIFE OF AGONY/ex-TYPE O NEGATIVE drummer and Brooklyn, New York native Sal Abruscato about Sal‘s new project, A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH. You can now watch the chat below.

Abruscato 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”).

A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH recently inked a worldwide recording deal with Steamhammer/SPV for the release of the group’s debut album, “And Hell Will Follow Me”.

A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH 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.

A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH‘s lineup for the show was as follows:

* Sal Abruscato (Life OF AGONY, TYPE O NEGATIVE) – Vocals, Guitar
* Matt Brown (SEVENTH VOID) – Guitar
* Bobby Hambel (BIOHAZARD) – Guitar
* Eric Morgan – Bass

Abruscato previously stated about A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH‘s debut CD, “This is my first album where I composed and play all instruments, including vocals. Along with co-producer/guitarist Matt Brown (SEVENTH VOID), we have accomplished a very fresh sound and it includes guest appearances by Bobby Hambel (BIOHAZARD), Keith Caputo (LIFE OF AGONY) and Ulrich Krieger (LOU REED).

“It is the darkest music I have ever written and recorded in my life, back to my sinister roots and I believe the fans will learn a completely different side of me.”
