TYPE O NEGATIVE (1990–PRESENT). Peter Steele (vocals/bass), Josh Silver (keyboards), Kenny Hickey (guitars), Sal Abruscato 1989–93, replaced by Johnny Kelly (drums).
Type O Negative were one of the most aggressive metal bands of the mid-nineties, led by frontman and bassist Pete Steele, they had to live up to the image of Steele’s former band, the Mighty Carnivore. The music of Type O Negative is predictably hard and fast and loud (brutal may be too much to describe them) but they are a worthy successor to Carnivore. For a newcomer, buy Bloody Kisses; for the rest of you, buy them all.
