I have been posting here for almost 2 years now and haven't seen one Type O Negative thread! Come on people! There's gotta be more Type O fans out there. This is the thread to discuss. Here's a bio of the band:

''Type O Negative began their career with the 1991 Roadrunner release Slow, Deep and Hard, followed by the luridly titled Origin of the Feces (complete with the appropiately scatological and controversial cover) in 1992. Both records showcase the lush "orchestral metal" musicality and fascinating, hard-to-peg inner workings of singer/bassist Peter Steele's mind, not to mention the his oft-misconstructed political leanings and views about the "fairer sex." Ultimately, though, Steele feels it was Bloody Kisses where the band truly came into it's own, melding the melody, lyrics and heaviness found in songs like "Blood & Fire" into a uniquely signature sound that has inspired fanatical fans ranging from white-skinned vampire wannabees to prog-rock metal bands not to mention raves from hard-to-impress critics at Alternative Press, Rolling Stone and Billboard.
But that was just the beginning for Type O Negative...

Type O Negative took a provocative approach on October Rust, the highly anticipated follow-up to their gold-certified third album Bloody Kisses, which spawned the hits "Black No. 1" and "Christian Woman" and earned the quartet slots on tours ranging from NIN to Queensryche. "We really came into our own with our last album; we found our style" explains Steele. Not that we set any limitations on the new album, we simply feel this is the logical continuation from Bloody Kisses, unlike Slow, Deep and Hard to Bloody Kisses which was really, really different.

October Rust, produced by Steele and keyboardist Josh Silver, was recorded in early 1996 at Systems Two Studios, with Mike Marciano engineering. October Rust marks drummer John Kelly's recording debut with the band although he joined in 1993, just after the release of Bloody Kisses. Type O Negative's diverse yet compatible personalities make the Brooklyn boys as compelling and entertaining on stage as off. Guitarist Kenny Hickey, a founding member of TON, has an aggressive playing style and almost intimidating personality that perfectly suits the band's varied textures and appeal. Josh Silver, his hair flying as he pounds the keyboards onstage, is quite a different character offstage: A self-proclaimed "paranoid schizophrenic hermit."

''Unlike many bands, Type O Negative write prolifically on the road, and lyricist/songwriter Steele penned nearly 80 percent of the material on a Yamaha keyboard in the back of the tour bus. The musical goal was "sonic saturation-as much sonic information as possible," and with the 12 songs on October Rust, intoned in Steele's sensual, resonant voice and realized via the band's tight unique, heavy, and wild musicality, they succeeded. While Bloody Kisses proved to be the breakthrough album for Type O Negative, October Rust will be a follow-through... Steele & Co. are never ones to leave an audience unsatisfied. As for any concerns about topping their last effort, Type O Negative feel no pressure and are fully confident in the textural sounds and memorable moments captured on their third full LP. Earthy, tactile and infused with Pagan influences, fire imagery and salamious sensuality, October Rust is candy for a diabetic world.''

I had heard a song or two a while back, and tried to get into them. I listened to Bloody Kisses, and despite my initial thoughts of those couple songs I'd heard previously, I didn't really enjoy the album much. Perhaps I should try again, but I deleted it a while back.

Bloody Kisses is a nice album, to Type O, it's their legend.

I loved this band when I was going to school. I have their "Least Worst Of" cd. My favorite song has to be "Love you to death" Their version of "cinnamon girl" is great.

Type-O-Negative are one of my favourites... last year i listened to Bloody Kisses without a pause. i loved it.... one of the greatest albums out there, each song is great!

Do you know from where the name comes from? its a type of blood: zero negative! therefore Type 0(zero) Negative :D

and you should go to their official homepage and read their biography,their hobbies, etc... its so funny! as far as i can remember the guitarist thinks he is napoleon, is shizophren and is most of the time in a clinic :D

the name comes from the bloodtype O, and does not stand for 0 (zero)
type O negative is just a very rare bloodtype.

I have uh... Life is killing me.
it's a decent cd, although I haven't listened to it in ages, I might do so because of this thread :)

Why the hell doesn't Slow, Deep and Hard have any "breakthrough" tracks? I've been into Type O Negative for years and I still love all the songs on that album despite the fact that it is basically a Carnivore album with different members and a different name.

Yeah Type O's name is about the blood type. First they were Repulsion, then Subzero, both of the names were taken so someone just went flipping through a phonebook and they came across an ad that read something to the affect of Type O Negative needed so they went with the name.

Maybe it's more of the mood I'm thinking of less then the sound.

hm.... no not really. Type-o-negative is funny, sarcastic, ironical - My Dying Bride is doom, depressive, sad...

You can't compare these two bands together, this would be a big mistake

Yea your probably, right the only stuff I have heard really is christian women, I love the vocals though.

Because they had to edit the song for radio and tv. It's got different lyrics to the album. Didn't matter, the video got banned. :cool:

I have all their albums except the least worst of. I also got their new live dvd a week or two ago. They really give their fans their money's worth, everything they produce is golden. Plus they're entertaining as hell.

I have got to say. I just recently heard this band and they are a riot. The comedy in their music is hilarious. I love how they are all like," 1 2 3 4 I DON'T WANNA LIVE NO MORE!" Then they kick into a nice happy riff.

I'm not sure if they were the ones who played a cover of Highway Star, but it was awesome.

I have World Coming Down, pretty good album.
