"Infernum in Terra" is the 4th full-length studio album by US alternative/doom/goth metal act A Pale Horse Named Death. The album was released through Long Branch Records in September 2021. It´s the successor to "When The World Becomes Undone" from 2019 and features two lineup changes since the predecessor as bassist Eric Morgan has been replaced by Oddie McLaughlin and drummer Johnny Kelly has been replaced by Chris Hamilton. The remaining part of the lineup who recorded the predecessor is intact, including band founder/lead vocalist/guitarist Sal Abruscato. The latter is known as the original drummer in both Type O Negative and Life of Agony.

Stylistically the material on "Infernum in Terra" continue the heavy (even doomy at times) and dark alternative rock/metal style of the preceding releases. One shot heavy and groove laden Black Sabbath riffing and one shot melancholic, heavy, and laid back Alice in Chains influence. A Pale Horse Named Death don´t exactly reach the compositional heights or the unique sound of their influences, but they are skilled musicians and the songs are generally well composed, relatively memorable, and well produced too. So fans of heavy, melacholic, and dark heavy rock/metal may find this an enjoyable listen. A 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is warranted.

Yeah and I`m not sure I think it´s a good idea. They could prosper from using more time collecting the best material for a better quality release.
