In a tirade shared to social media, deleted, and reuploaded, Sal Abruscato, the former drummer of Type O Negative and Life of Agony, has made wide ranging accusations targeting his former bandmates, the music industry, and specific individuals he believes have wronged him. Abruscato shares his many issues with his former bandmates and people in the music industry. current state of mind and his grievances with the industry. He was triggered by the press release that went out earlier this week commemorating the 30th anniversary of Type O Negative’s third album, Bloody Kisses, along with a Graphic Novel from, Z2 Comics in which Sal does not appear, but his replacement Johnny Kelly is depicted. Johnny did not join the band fully as the drummer until after their fourth album, October Rust was released. The main artist of the Bloody Kisses graphic novel is Alan Robert of Life of Agony, who Sal also disparaged. He also said band founder Peter Steele would be rolling over in his grave at the “gash grab” antics of the current owners of the brand and that it is a disservice to the fans to reissue the music. Sal played on the first three releases of Type O Negative and claimed to co-found that band. He also played on River Runs Red from Life of Agony, and was involved in several reunion lineups of that band. Abruscato hinted at possible legal action against his former bandmates and others in the industry at the end of the video. Watch the clip and read the transcription via Lambgoat. Continue reading →
30 years ago a dark presence moved into music history when Type O Negative released their third studio album, Bloody Kisses, bringing a goth metal voice to the masses. Listed at #53 on Rolling Stone’s Top 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time, Bloody Kisses was an instant classic paving the way to the music charts with the incredible vocals by the late Peter Steele, drums by Sal Abruscato (although Johnny Kelly is depicted), guitars by Kenny Hickey, with keyboards by Josh Silver. Z2 commemorates the 30th anniversary of Bloody Kisses with a stunning volume of art and stories from rock star contributors Andy Biersack, Carla Harvey, Cristina Scabbia, and Burton C. Bell – as well as many more! This anthology captures both the haunted edge and the dry satirical humor that defined what many consider to be the definitive gothic metal album. The collection is slated for publication in late spring 2024 and will include, for the first time ever a double-picture disc vinyl set of Bloody Kisses, featuring art by Alan Robert (Life Of Agony/The Beauty of Horror creator).
