Love The Ones You Hate by A Pale Horse Named Death is the first single from their upcoming album, When the World Becomes Undone. With a riff that wouldn’t be out of place in a fifties midnight horror double feature weaves in and out of Sal Abruscato’s brooding bellow as he croons, Love the ones you love to hate, dancing devils in your parade. The song steamrolls forward on a fiery solo and unshakable groove as the melody spirals towards oblivion.
Led by founding Type O Negative & Life of Agony member Sal Abruscato A Pale Horse Named Death Was founded eight years ago in New York. Now When The World Becomes Undone is their third album, and the music is a nice mix of doom and gothic metal with hints of hard rock, alternative rock etc. The band consist of Sal Abruscato (Type O Negative, Life Of Agony) – vocals, guitar, drums, Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Seventh Void, Silvertomb, Danzig) – drums, Joe Taylor (Doro, Cycle of Pain) – guitar , Eric Morgan (First Order) – bass, Eddie Heedles – guitar.
Beauty often blossoms at the root of darkness. A Pale Horse Named Death siphon strangely blissful melodies from apocalyptic heavy metal awash in swells of cavernous gothic keys and grunge song craft. The New York quintet continue to excavate vulnerability from venom on their anxiously awaited third full-length album. A delicate dichotomy drives the avowed and acclaimed Brooklyn Lords Of Doom.
«It’s our signature combination of seemingly depressing and dark musical tones with unexpectedly pretty melodies,” affirms Sal Abruscato. There’s a hypnotic phenomenon that happens when you take super heavy riffs and add a harmonic sensibility. It allows you to drift off and zone out».
«The phrase When The World Becomes Undone came to me in 2014, explains Abruscato. You could see what was beginning to happen in the world at large. Just turn on the news or look around. At the same time, there were a lot of crazy things happening in my personal life. Those struggles all became fuel for the music. It was like I had this partial sketch a while ago, and we finally filled it out this year. It evolved into what we have here».
«You need time for events to happen in life, says Abruscato. Rushing from record to record is a tall order. We were given the space to evolve and progress and embrace this diversity to keep things interesting».
