The Bronx Casket Co.  


Formed as a side project by Overkill bassist D.D. Verni, and featuring several prominent metal musicians, the excellently-monickered Bronx Casket Company is musically miles away from the thrash of Verni's main band. Instead, the focus here is on dark, gothy metal, sometimes reminiscent of Type O Negative but not quite as heavyhanded. Keyboards and guitars play an equal role in defining a dark, melancholy atmosphere (but not totally without light), with Myke Hideous' vocals a perfect fit for this style. Among the tracks on their debut are one of the best ballads I've heard in a long time ("Alone") and a cool, un-thrashy take on Metallica's "Jump In The Fire". A second album, Sweet Home Transylvania, was released in October of 2001, and though they haven't had a high profile since then, they are still around and aim to release their third album soon.
