Peter Steele, R.I.P.

Wow! I love Type O Negative. I remember the first time I ever saw them. It was the video for "Christian Woman" from the album Bloody Kisses. It totally blew me away! I saw them in concert once, they opened for Queensryche. R.I.P. Pete.

Peter Steele, singer and bassist with New York goth metal act Type O Negative, has died, reports CBS News. According to an email from the band’s manager, Mickey Renault, “Peter passed away last night. As of now it appears to have been heart failure. That’s all the details we have right now.”

Type O Negative put out their first album, Slow, Deep and Hard, in 1991. Subsequent releases included 1994’s Bloody Kisses—which cracked the Billboard Top 100—and the 2000 compilation, The Least Worst of Type O Negative. Steele gained notoriety in 1995 when he posed for Playgirl.
