Staff Round Table: Type O Negative--Rating Their Discography
4/13/2018 by Frank Hill




April 14, 2018, marks the 8th anniversary of the death of Peter Steele (b. Petrus Thomas Ratajczyk - January 4, 1962), lead singer, bassist and composer for the gothic metal band Type O Negative.

The Brooklyn, New York native was instrumental in the gothic metal scene, really establishing a more metallic approach to goth that had yet to be tapped into. His long dark hair, pale appearance, and giant stature went miles with the band's imagery. Musically, Type O, combined goth, hard rock riffs and a backing keyboard sound that emulated a funeral organ. Type O had hits with "Christian Woman" and "Black No. 1" as well as landing on the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" soundtrack with the Seals & Krofts cover "Summer Breeze".

For this feature, Maximum Metal staffers wrote about and rated each Type O release. Check out our picks here…[Full Column Link]
