From our performances to Matt Brown’s mixes and finally having the album blessed by engineer and mastering great Ted Jensen, this album sounds bigger than the Grand Canyon.

A Pale Horse Named Death is aiming to release their sophomore album, the follow-up to 2011′s And Hell Will Follow Me (review), in late Spring of 2013. The band has once again commissioned famed artist Sam Shearon AKA Mister-Sam (Rob Zombie, Fear Factory, Rammstein) to create the artwork for the as yet untitled album.
Vocalist/guitarist Sal Abruscato (who was also Type O Negative‘s drummer) gives an update, “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 song writing 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. Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound will be mastering the album.” READ MORE
Update: We’re being told that this is a fan mash-up. If this is true, somebody give this man a job, eh?
Earlier this year, A Pale Horse Named Death
released And Hell Will Follow
), an album that I thought had some of the best elements of early Alice In Chains
and some Stone Temple Pilots
, all with a heavier, darker edge. It’s a great album that I pop on anytime I want to feel grimy and dirty while rocking out. And those adjectives perfectly describe the video for Devil In The Closet
, which has elements of Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights
. Check out the video after the jump and let me know how you
feel after watching it.
When you’ve got a band that features members from Type O Negative, Life of Agony, and Biohazard, you know you’re in for a treat. I mean, with names like that behind A Pale Horse Named Death, there’s no way it can go wrong, right? Well, check after the jump to see if that statement holds true.
