As a drummer, Sal Abruscato has had his hand in some of heavy music's finest offerings — from Type O Negative's Bloody Kisses to Life of Agony's River Runs Red. As a singer and guitarist, he now leads A Pale Horse Named Death, a gloomy, doom-rock outfit that features his replacement in Type O, drummer Johnny Kelly, and traffics in morbid, depressive anthems redolent of classic Alice in Chains and, of course, Peter Steele's most famous project. The band is set to hit European on tour this fall (see the itinerary below), and ahead of those dates, APHND have offered up a fittingly dark music video for the song "Fell in My Hole," which follows a man in a cemetery as he wrangles with life and death decisions.
"APHND are very excited to have worked with Joel Nilsson at Maluha Media and Tony Jelencovich — who's also in Transport League — to create and release a cinematic conceptual video for the song 'Fell In My Hole," comments Abruscato.
"We did not want to do the typical performance video of a band onstage. We wanted to give more to the story of manic depression. When we had the opportunity to work with Joel and Tony and film in Gothenburg, Sweden, we felt that is was gonna be special, something that will draw the viewer into that world."
