Bloody-Disgusting is thrilled to team up with A Pale Horse Named Death to bring you an exclusive stream of their song “In The Sleeping Death”, which comes from their new album Lay My Soul To Waste! The melodic, haunting grunge/metal track is a fantastic slow burner, one that has stayed with me since I first heard it. The best way I can describe it is that it sounds like Alice In Chains only rawer, more real, and more evil. I’m beyond excited that I get to share this song with all of you readers! Head on below to give the song a listen before the album drops tomorrow.
Singer/guitarist Sal Abruscato (ex-Type O Negative) states, ““In The Sleeping Death” is about an extremely depressed and suicidal individual that is seeking the inner peace of death and wants to leave the living behind.”
Lay My Soul To Waste comes out tomorrow via Steamhammer/SPV Records. Pre-orders are available for LP here and CD here. READ MORE

On April 14th, 2010, the music world was shocked when Type O Negative bassist/frontman Peter Steele passed away due to heart failure. He was 48 years old. Formed in 1989, the band released seven studio albums, beginning with 1991′s Slow, Deep And Hard and ending with 2007′s Dead Again. They attained popularity with 1993′s Bloody Kisses, which was the first Roadrunner Records album to achieve a platinum selling status.
Now, metal journalist/author Jeff Wagner is working on an authorized biography of the towering musician. He writes via the official Facebook page, “The authorized biography of Peter Steele will be a comprehensive investigation of his life and music, supported by those who knew him best, written by a fan, for the fans.”
Wagner adds, “We assure you, this book is authorized by those closest to him, and will contain a wide assortment of reflections from those who knew him best.” READ MORE
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
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.
It’s been one year since Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele unexpectedly passed away. To celebrate his memory, MetalUnderground along with Dan Mitchell of Beneath The Wood studios have put together ‘All For None, None For All‘, a tribute album featuring Type O Negative covers from underground bands all over the world. The entire track list is after the jump as well as information on how to get your copy.
Dan Mitchell of Autumns Eyes/Beneath The Wood Studios commented: “My original idea was to find bands that were only interested in paying tribute to Peter, and not getting caught up in the politics of it all. No talks of money, labels, suits, or anyone trying to suck the life out of it. Just a straight up tribute.”
I didn’t really run into many albums, or even songs for that matter, that I TRULY hated this year. Then again, I didn’t really put myself in a position to have to face much of that. Rather, this list of ‘Worst of 2010′ is going to reflect upon several situations that arose this past year which shocked and affected me. Read for on my ‘Worst of 2010′.

Commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono: “After the crazy videos we did with EX DEO it was only natural for us to upgrade the KATAKLYSM visuals as well. We decided to try to recreate the underworld fantasy atmosphere depicted in the artwork with some great visual effects. The song is about surviving the judgment that others cast upon you, and that which is important and feels right to you. Spread your venom and not the lies of your
enemies! Ivan did another fantastic job and we are super happy with it
and hopefully you guys dig it too. See you on tour!”

Direct from the awesome crew over at Roadrunner Records:
Whether making memorable moments, pushing the envelope with explicit imagery, cinematic technology, or just telling the gripping tale of well-thought-out storylines, music videos have always been a beacon of expression, which is why we took a look at the killer videos in Roadrunner’s long history to find ten of our most unforgettable.

From the viral strength of DragonForce’s Sam Totman chugging a beer while Herman Li shreds through Killswitch Engage’s Adam. D. playing a fair maiden, to Slipknot destroying a house in Iowa, we give you our global staff-approved Greatest Music Videos. READ MORE
