"A Pale Horse Named Death have released Lay My Soul to Waste and it is getting quite the buzz. It was a pick of the week on That Metal Show and there is little wonder why. If you lament the demise of the late Pete Steele’s Type O Negative, this might be just what your goth doctor would order for you. In fact, it features a member of that band and boy, does it show. Songs like “Shallow Grave” remind us all why we liked proper goth music in the first place. This is not your glam pop variety but the goth done properly with a hefty dash of doom for good measure. This is a good reminder that Americans can do proper goth as well as the English. It will meet all your daily musical nihilism needs, that is for sure."
