Drummer Sal Abruscato has "amicably" left LIFE OF AGONY, the band he was in, on and off, for the past two and a half decades.
Abruscato seemingly alluded to his exit from LIFE OF AGONY in a December 19 post on his personal Facebook page. He wrote: "Sometimes you just have to let go and say goodbye to old friends, the past and its ghosts. Move forward, grow up, grab that life preserver and jump off the ship. I have three beautiful daughters and a beautiful wife that love me and that's what is important."
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Sal started playing drums at age 10. He co-founded TYPE O NEGATIVE with Peter Steele and performed on the albums "Slow, Deep And Hard" (1991), "Origin Of The Feces" (1992), "Bloody Kisses" (1993) and various best-of compilations and soundtracks. As the drummer for LIFE OF AGONY, he played on "River Runs Red" (1993), "Ugly" (1995), "River Runs Again" (2003), "Broken Valley" (2005) and "A Place Where There's No More Pain" (2017). Additional projects include SUPERMASSIV and MY MORTALITY. He is also the singer, songwriter and guitarist for A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH
