Good Morning All,
This week’s album of the week is one of my favorites. It has become one of my all time favorites since the lead singer and bassist passed away. The death of the pivotal member of this band was the greatest blow of all the rock deaths in the last year (or so).
This week’s Album of the Week is “October Rust” by Type O Negative
Released in 1996, this album is not one of their most critically acclaimed, but it is one of my favorites. Type O Negative are the masters of gothic metal, and they seemed like they genuinely had fun while making music, despite their persona.
It seems like the metal community lost more bass players than anything this last year. We also lost Mike Alexander (Evile) and Paul Gray (Slipknot) in addition to Peter Steele. Peter Steele’s death seemed to fly under the radar, but to me, it was the most upsetting.
RIP Peter Steele. You can never be replaced.
