On this weekend's edition of her show, metal radio queen Full Metal Jackie will be premiering the first single from the highly anticipated debut album from A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH.  The album entitled "And Hell Will Follow Me" is set to be released June 14th on SPV/Steamhammer.  In addition to the premiere of the track "As Black as My Heart" lead singer and guitarist Sal Abruscato will be joining Jackie to talk about the band and the new album. 


Jackie commented about premiering the track and having Sal on the show:

"As a Type O and Life of Agony Fan, I'm very excited to premiere the first song from Sal's great new band. You are all going to love it!"


A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH is the brainchild of Brooklyn, NY native Sal Abruscato, and sounds like Alice in Chains mysteriously sneaking up behind Type O Negative with a butcher knife while being filmed for a future episode of "Law & Order". Critical acclaim has been quick upon the announcement of the album's June release.


Sal's partner in crime on "And Hell Will Follow Me" is Matt Brown, sound engineer extraordinaire and guitarist of fellow NY band SEVENTH VOID. "The chemistry between me and Matt is unique and flawless very rare in today's music. We are the murdering evil version of Lennon and McCartney." says Abruscato.


Brown adds, "Sal asked me if I would help to take these songs to the next level. I took on this project for my friend, to find some closure in rough times. The music is just an extension of our friendship and our passion for creativity."


The album artwork was done by Sam Shearon aka Mr. Sam, who has previously done work for Rob Zombie, Fear Factory and Cradle of Filth to name a few, and features a 20 page booklet with artwork for each individual song. Additionally, the Double LP version will feature a never before heard bonus track called "Pick Up Truck".


To top that all off, Life of Agony's Keith Caputo lent background vocals to four tracks and Lou Reed's saxophonist Ulrich Krieger guests on "Die Alone". Bobby Hambel from Biohazard - who also plays with the band live - played the guitar leads on three tunes.


APHND is also a force to be reckoned with live, with shows and festivals already planned in both the U.S. and Europe. Alongside Sal, Matt and Bobby, the live line-up places Type O and Seventh Void drummer Johnny Kelly behind the kit, and Eric Morgan on bass.


"This is my pinnacle creation, the best album I have ever done." commented Sal. And after listening, most people are tending to agree.
