A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, the doom metal band led by founding Type O Negative and Life of Agony member Sal Abruscato, have released their new single “Slave To The Master”. It’s the fourth single taken from the band’s new album, “Infernum In Terra,“ released September 24th, 2021 via Long Branch Records / SPV. Watch it below.
Sal Abruscato says about the new single: “This song refers to the mental and emotional abuse that happens in a family setting. Tiptoeing around a family member that causes only emotional damage to you and your family, whatever they touch they destroy, whatever they say about your character is a lie and no one trusts what you are saying is true. You get this feeling that the broken glass you walk on is what lies in their wake of destruction.”
“Infernum In Terra” is the fourth studio album by the band led by Abruscato. The new album was mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Meat Loaf, Yes, Sepultura, Halford, etc.) at Maor Appelbaum Mastering (California, US), while the artwork was done by Kelvin Doran of Serpent Tusk Studios (Dublin, Ireland).
“The album to me represents a new beginning, turning a new leaf shall we say with the same vibe from past albums but with a fresh open-minded approach,” says band leader Sal Abruscato. He adds: “There is no real concrete specific concept, it touches on some personal topics in my life long, my interest in the dark arts, that to have light you must have darkness to balance everything. With daylight comes nightfall, with heaven there is hell and at this moment the world seems to be in a very dark place hence the title of the album ‘Infernum In Terra’. This is a very dark album, but what else is new I always write dark music to soothe a dark soul!”
