Beauty often blossoms at the root of darkness. A Pale Horse Named Death siphon strangely blissful melodies from apocalyptic heavy metal awash in swells of cavernous gothic keys and grunge song-craft The band continue to excavate vulnerability from venom on their anxiously awaited third full-length album, When The World Becomes Undone. A delicate dichotomy drives the avowed and acclaimed “Brooklyn Lords of Doom.”
“It’s our signature combination of seemingly depressing and dark musical tones with unexpectedly pretty melodies,” affirms Sal Abruscato. “There’s a hypnotic phenomenon that happens when you take super heavy riffs and add a harmonic sensibility. It allows you to drift off and zone out.”
The new album was mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Meat Loaf, Yes, Sepultura, Halford etc.) at Maor Appelbaum Mastering while the artwork was once again created by Sam Shearon (Rob Zombie, Fear Factory, Cradle of Filth etc.).
The group quietly carved out a singular lane since emerging from the borough in 2011. The band’s debut And Hell Will Follow Me and its 2013 follow-up Lay My Soul To Waste both claimed spots among the coveted “Top 20 Albums of the Year” from Revolver Magazine in addition to garnering praise from Decibel, Terrorizer, and more. All the while, the songs clocked 2 million-plus total streams. A five-year gap preceded When The World Becomes Undone as Sal rejoined Life Of Agony, which he co-founded, for a triumphant comeback tour and contributed musical arrangements on the 2017 album, A Place Where There’s No More Pain.
However, the album title When The World Becomes Undone stayed with him as he toured around the globe.
“The phrase When The World Becomes Undone came to me in 2014,” he explains. “You could see what was beginning to happen in the world at large. Just turn on the news or look around. At the same time, there were a lot of crazy things happening in my personal life. Those struggles all became fuel for the music. It was like I had this partial sketch a while ago, and we finally filled it out this year. It evolved into what we have here.”
