A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH / And Hell Will Follow Me (2011)

Mix Alice in Chains’ sludge with Type O Negative’s atmosphere and you have A Pale Horse Named Death.  It’s the brainchild of former Type O Neg drummer Sal Abruscato, so it’s only natural it would sound similar to the Drab Four.  The AIC element was a surprise.  It’s pretty amazing.  A drummer taking the guitar/vocal duties is rarely a good thing (people who know me will know … Dave!) but this post-grunge grunge is a success.  I very much doubt it will still be giving me the jollies a year from now but today I’ve got it on repeat.

Songs of Note: As Black As My Heart; Cracks in the Walls
