The second inductee to the 2014 Class of the Bullspike Radio Hall Of Fame is A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH. Founded by Type O Negative & Life of Agony drummer Sal Abruscato in 2009, A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, or APHND for short, brings a familiar doom and gloom sound together with a metal edge.
Even though APHND‘s founding father is known in the metal world, we all know when you start a new project you are indeed starting over. However in this case they have been greatly accepted in a fairly short time. Their debut record “And Hell Will Follow Me” was ranked the No. 5 album of 2011 by Revolver Magazine and their 2013 release “Lay My Soul to Waste” was so well received it allowed them to join a tour featuring Danzig, Butcher Babies and Texas Hippie Coalition. “Lay My Soul to Waste” was even a featured Pick of the Week by Don Jamieson on VH1 Classic‘s That Metal Show.
A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH is (currently) comprised of:
- Sal Abruscato – lead vocals, guitar
- Matt Brown – guitar, backing vocals
- Johnny Kelly – drums
- Eric Morgan – bass guitar
- Eddie Heedles – guitar
It is for all these reasons and more that A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH is the second inductee to the Bullspike Radio Hall Of Fame Class of 2014.
