Type O Negative Biography

Biography

Type O Negative is a gothic/doom metal band formed in Brooklyn, New York, US in 1990. They are well known for their dry, morbid and ironic sense of humor and their often slow and brooding music. "The Drab Four" (the nickname Type O Negative gave themselves) have always succeeded in keeping their own unique style, mixing hardcore rock 'n' roll with slow, doom-like vibes, and guitar-laden soundscapes. Lead singer Pete Steele has described their music as "bad songs written on a Tuesday night." The two main influences on the band are The Beatles and Black Sabbath, and keyboardist Josh Silver has admitted to a love of Pink Floyd--evidence of which can be heard in the atmospherics of his production techniques. The band arose from the ashes of the band Carnivore and gained popularity with their songs "Black No. 1" and "Christian Woman" from the Bloody Kisses album. The album was the first in Roadrunner Records' catalog to go both gold and platinum. They have successfully toured with Pantera, Life of Agony, and dozens of other established and up-and-coming bands, as well as taking part in Ozzfest. The band had VHS and DVD documentary releases in addition to their CD releases and contributions to movie soundtracks and compilations.
