It was without question that The Metal Republic of the world gasped with despair upon the passing of Peter Steele because that meant there would be no more creative output from Type O Negative and unless some legacy bootlegs ever came up as releases the world would be closing the book on the band and finding them forever important in Metal history. Over the last few years we have found some side projects with Type O members forming and even a new one with the bands former drummer Sal Abruscato that was called A Pale Horse Named Death. That was the band we were seeing this evening at The Studio at Webster Hall and after hearing some of “A Hell Will Follow Me” I had to say that this was a band with just the right vibe for the Type O Negative fans. To read the entire concert report and enjoy the photo galleries, just click the logo below to be taken over to that part of PiercingMetal.com; Then please continue down this blog posting to enjoy some of the side images that we like to present to our readership in this space alone.
While I did not manage to capture any sort of marquee shot for this particular show, I did chance upon one of the show posters and have instead provided you with that visual. It seems that I need to look a little harder at this venue to see what they have going on for this kind of photographic presentation because I really love snaring the bands names up in any sort of lights. It makes our readers from very far away feel as if they were looking at it with us.
Continuing my occasional presentations of some of the technology or implements of music that are involved in the shows we see, here is Sal Abruscato’s batch of effects.
I forgot whose effects these were but I think they might have been Matt Brown’s stuff.
Finally, two very important ingredients for a Metal show…..a couple of cold beers and the set list of the nights repertoire…..
There was not a whole lot of merchandise available this evening, but there were a couple of shirts and some stickers around. Here is the shirt. Mind you there was no music on hand to purchase which I felt was a mistake. Perhaps they could not get them in time.
The band also had some stickers on hand and these were free so that was a nice touch. Take a look.
The opening bands had some stuff on hand as well. Here is a shot of it.
