Today Sal Abruscato from A Pale Horse Named Death tells us about "As Black As My Heart" from their brand new album "And Hell Will Follow Me," which hits stores tomorrow. Here is the story:
I pretty much wrote this song in a few days, it happened right when my ex-wife left me and robbed my money out of my bank accounts. I was angry and felt betrayed, but I did not want to write about it blatantly as to not give her any direct credit for the song. Just a vague depiction of a depressed heart and anyone with common sense would put 1&1 together.
The verses were intentionally melancholy, broken down depicting the feeling of loneliness, depression and sadness.
The music just happened one part after another and flowed right out of me. I came up with this My Bloody Valentine feel for the chorus that is hypnotic under the main chorus riff.
The heavy bridge and ending music is an extension of my anger and rage I felt, with me screaming Nothing as black as my heart only to end with a long painful scream at the very end.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
