A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH

Lay My Soul To Waste

(Steamhammer/SPV)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 8.0

Drummer Sal Abruscato (ex-TYPE O NEGATIVE, LIFE OF AGONY) is onto something here with his own band, A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH. Abruscato continues to show his diversity and creativity on its sophomore release, Lay My Soul To Waste, by once again writing, singing and playing guitar. It’s a blend of doom, stoner and grunge rock with slight goth-like influences in the vein of TYPE-O NEGATIVE, BRONX CASKET CO., ROB ZOMBIE and ALICE IN CHAINS. A dark and melancholic, yet uplifting mood runs through its 11 tracks; imagine your ray of sunshine just got smothered by a big, black cloud. It’s almost enjoyable being doomed and gloomed out for just a little while. The solemn melodies and layered vocal harmonies add some zest to the slow, sludgy, grungy riffs and heavy drum fills. Abruscato’s soulful and raspy voice is the perfect pitch for this type of music. He was pretty close to Pete Steele during his tenure in Type O, so something must have rubbed off on him, if not for Steel’s deep-growling croon, but for his overall gothic tone and melancholic delivery; ‘Shallow Grave’ and ‘Day Of the Storm’ boasts this Type O Negative formula and overall vibe. If you thought A Pale Horse Named Death’s debut was dark and sombre, wait till you sink your teeth into Lay My Soul To Waste. It’s a winner, folks.
