On A Pale Horse (Ex-Slipknot, Downthesun) Debuts New Song From Warren Riker Produced Album

“Sound The Alarm” Video Now Online



Des Moines, Iowa’s On A Pale Horse, featuring guitarist Josh Brainard (ex-Slipknot) and vocalist Aaron Peltz (ex-Downthesun), have posted the track “Release The Smoke” from their upcoming new album, A Generation of Vipers, online at http://www.myspace.com/onapalehorse

“This tune was initially written for the last record and fortunately the way we had it then didn’t make the final cut. When we started writing for the new album we came back to this song and retooled it a bit and BAM, it turned out to be my favorite song that we have ever done. It’s weird how things work out like that,” says vocalist Aaron Peltz. “‘Release The Smoke’ started out as just a title and a vision of what I thought it should be about, since I was feeling a native-mysticism type vibe for the song, who better to write the lyrics than Jerry. He actually came up with the words when I was cutting vocals with Warren and it took him maybe a half hour to write it. He also added some native tongue during the end of the tune and added the s poken word that you hear in the middle. The song is about a sweat-lodge that natives go into (kind of like a sauna, but hotter and more uncomfortable). They used these as a way to receive visions and to cleanse the spirit. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy this song as much as we do.”

On A Pale Horse will release their heavily anticipated new album, A Generation of Vipers, on March 4th, 2008 through Corporate Punishment Records. The album was produced by Warren Riker (CROWBAR, DOWN, CATHEDRAL) and executive-produced by SLIPKNOT’s Paul Gray. The group has recently uploaded the video for the track “Sound The Alarm” at the following location: http://www.revver.com/video/576877
