Re: Reports That Type O Negative Frontman Pete Steele Has Died
the plot thickens:

Peter Steele (born Petrus T. Ratajczyk on January 4, 1962 in Brooklyn, New York, U.S., died April 15, 2010) was the lead singer, bassist, and composer for the Gothic metal band Type O Negative. Steele, who stood 6' 7" (201 cm) tall, had a low, bass heavy voice, which is one of the most recognizable features in Type O Negative's music. Before joining Type O Negative, he played for the metal group Fallout and the thrash band Carnivore.

Despite a message on the band's official web site that seems to suggest otherwise, TYPE O NEGATIVE frontman Peter Steele HAS NOT DIED.

The band, who are famous for their dark sense of humor, have spent much of the last few months preparing material for their SPV Records debut, which is expected to be recorded later in the year.

TYPE O NEGATIVE cancelled their U.S. tour last fall in order to allow Steele to undergo further tests after "undisclosed anomalies" were discovered during a medical exam. A February 11, 2005 update on Peter's condition from TYPE O NEGATIVE drummer Johnny Kelly stated, "There really isn't much to report other than he's doing fine and his health is improving daily."

so is he dead or alive? maybe we should call him Pete Burns from now on?

Re: Reports That Type O Negative Frontman Pete Steele Has Died
oh.

maybe not... Road Runner Records have this message:

Roadrunner Records has commented on the recent passing of Peter Steele:

It is with great sadness that we report the news that Peter Steele, iconic frontman of Brooklyn goth-metal legends Type O Negative, passed away at 6pm yesterday due to heart failure.

With a sense of humor blacker than the clothing he wore, the sarcastic messages in songs like “Set Me on Fire,” “I Don’t Want to Be Me” and an album entitled Life is Killing Me once viewed as darkly tongue-in-cheek now take on a more gloomy meaning as we remember the man who wrote them. SVP of A&R Monte Conner, who originally signed Type O Negative to Roadrunner Records in 1989 puts it best, saying:

"We have lost several Roadrunner artists over the years but this is a biggie – this one hurts the most, not just because Peter was a great, great guy, but he figures so prominently in the history of this company (our first Gold album, our first radio success). He was a tortured soul for most of his life and certainly for the entire time we all knew him. Let’s hope he is in a better place."

Pete Steele was surely a man who towered over everyone he met, not just in his physical stature but in his personality riddled with humor and heartache. His dramatic baritone voice carried foreboding lyrics about death and despair over electronic chaos and bottom-heavy guitars, proving to become not only the band’s signature, but a sound unmatched ever since Type O’s inception. With profound distaste and disgust for both humanity and political correctness, Type O Negative never changed with the times - the times changed with them. Marked by sharp wit and bouts of gloom 'n depression, Peter Steele and the Drab Four rewarded their listeners with what can only be expected from the Brooklyn doom squad: A nihilistic world view, anthems of sex and death, and a blinding torch of well-placed fury.

VP of Promotions Mark Abramson recalls his time spent working with Peter and Type O, saying: “I remember getting the demo tape of Repulsion (soon to be renamed Type O Negative) and feeling this visceral outpouring of rage in a way that very few records hit me. We went on to be friends in addition to my being one of their biggest fans, and I worked the records with a passion. Hell, I even sold shirts for them in some early shows when they needed help! When we were going to take Type O to commercial radio I felt it like a life mission and for the 2 years of the Bloody Kisses campaign we changed so much -- we helped take this label to a new level, gave them and us first Gold records, helped expand boundaries at the soon-to-be-named format of Active Rock radio and introduced the world to a truly unique band. I remember being ridiculed at the Gold plaque presentation picture that I “could breathe now” as I was puffed-chest proud, and responding that I actually couldn’t! Traveling with Peter to radio stations was always an adventure and fun; Peter was a rock star, but he didn’t know it, which made it so much better! I have so many great stories and memories of traveling the road with them but most would only mean something to me. Cities and shows flood back to me now: Ft Myers… Lubbock… Toledo… crazy nights for sure! We were an important part of each other’s lives. Peter was a unique person with his own issues but they were part of what made him Peter Steele and the later years were not his best years but he was a good person, with a good heart. The only person I have ever known him to hurt was himself. There are so few bands like Type O and very few personalities like Peter. I will forever love his music and his art, and cherish the time we had together. Farewell my friend – be well and be happy.”

From everyone at Roadrunner Records, we offer our condolences to Peter's family and friends, and hope you'll join us in listening to some classic Type O today in honor of a true talent and a Roadrunner legend.

Were they working on a new album?

I hope they at least can release something still.

I have no doubt the band is dead now, but hopefully they still have some unreleased material.

Like many of you, TON and Steele got me through some of the toughest parts of my youth/teenage years. I could identify with so much of their music, not to mention it is really beautiful. This is a real loss to the music community as a whole. We lost an extremely talented individual, and he will definitely be missed/mourned by many. RIP Peter Steele.

Couldn't have said it better myself man.

Their music got me through high school, it moved me, I identified with it at that time with all of the drama and rage that comes along with adolescence.

This band more than any other other gave me an outlet.

And I still listen to them to this day!

These guys are permanently on my mp3 player, always will be.

Bummer.
