Type O Negative Frontman Peter Steele Dead From Heart Failure


Peter Steele, the singer and bass player for gothic heavy metal band Type O Negative, passed away Wednesday due to heart failure. Rumors of his death were confirmed by Kenny Hickey, a member of the band.

Rumors of Steele´s death circulated in 2005, but this time it has been confirmed. The subject matter of Type O Negative´s songs involve death, romance and depression. This helped give the band the nickname of "The Drab Four."

Type O Negative´s first commercial success was in 1993 with the album "Bloody Kisses," which went platinum. Since then, the band has come out with four more studio albums, the latest of which is 2007´s "Dead Again."

I´m incredibly saddened by this. I lived in New England and every Halloween they would do a tour around the area and I would see them every time. Peter Steele was a wonderful musician and I hope he is finally getting the peace he deserves.

  RIP Peter  
So incredibly sad. I had the joy of meeting Peter several times, I´ve been a loyal fan of their music for 15+ years now. Despite his dark image, he was always very friendly towards his fans. I hope he is able to find and enjoy the peace he craved so much in this life. RIP Peter Steele. You music will live on.

I´ve only heard good things about Peter, and although I´m not a fan of goth metal, they had some really good songs.

I am also not a goth metal fan, but Type-O Negative is one of the best hard rock bands to come out of the 90s. I have been jamming their albums since he passed, and their music is beautiful.

Type O will always be one of my favorite bands. I was lucky enough to have seen them a few years back. Peter Steele was an amazing musician.
