For those who don't know her work, Lilith is an amazing metal vocalist, performing both on her own and with the band Sorrowseed. in the Boston area.  Her growls rival any guy in the biz and her shrieks will freeze you cold!  This song shows her whole range including a beautifully clear singing voice she is unveiling for the first time.  You'll be surprised it's all the same person.  She is impressive to both see and hear! 

Goth music and metal have been her life-long passions.  Peter was one of her vocal idols and she was very
affected by his passing. This is a tribute from the heart.

Official Statement from Type O Negative on Peter Steele's Passing [17 Apr 2010|12:02am]

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Type O Negative front man, bassist, and our band mate, Peter Steele passed away last night of what appears to be heart failure.

Ironically Peter had been enjoying a long period of sobriety and improved health and was imminently due to begin writing and recording new music for our follow up to "Dead Again" released in 2007.

The official cause of death has yet to be determined pending autopsy results. The funeral services will be private and memorial services will be announced at a future date. We’d like to share our thoughts and those of Peter’s family below.
We are truly saddened to lose our friend and appreciate the tremendous outpouring today from around the world.


Josh, Kenny and Johnny

Josh Silver:
“Peter, My endless source of frustration, (as I'm yours) you have really done it this time. You have changed and touched countless lives through music, comedy and often brutal honesty. You've made life both interesting and irritating and I could not imagine not having known you for 37 years. It still isn't true in my mind but in time I will miss you and the creating that we all endured together. We certainly disagreed constantly and I believe (and hope) we all learned from each other. Should I call you my brother, friend or neighbor? I can only call you Peter (and usually after 2 PM). We laughed at ourselves more times then I can count. Knowing humans are preposterous creatures and I know we reveled in that fact. I will miss you in time, but at this moment your premature departure seems surreal and has pissed me off to no end. Though I never told you that I harbor a deep respect for you, I do. Goodbye my friend.”

Kenny Hickey: “Peter Steele was one of the most brilliant and funny personalities in music and it was all for real. Half the time people thought he was joking, but he was actually telling the truth. Part of me died with him.”

Johnny Kelly:
“It’s impossible for me to put into a few sentences what I am feeling at the moment Peter. I’m not sure if I should eulogize or roast you. Both good and bad, we went on one hell of a ride together and sadly, the ride has come to an end. You truly were a unique person. Your music touched many people. Myself included. Whether it was talking about The Beatles, power tools, how Pluto was no longer considered a planet or calling me at 3am asking me to drive to your house to have a fistfight with you, you always kept it interesting. It was a privilege to have been your bandmate. It’s something that I will always cherish.”

In a statement issued today by Steele`s family: “Legendary Goth/Heavy Metal musician Peter Steele died suddenly Wednesday, April 14, 2010, after a short illness at the age of 48. He wrote and orchestrated the music for the Brooklyn-based band Type O Negative, a groundbreaking group known for its dramatic lyrical emphasis on the themes of romance, depression, and death. Steele, renowned as much for his striking physical appearance as his musical talent, was the creative force behind the bands 20-year success writing most of the material for the their albums. Type O Negative and Steele have been lauded as a major influence by numerous alternative and metal bands. The band gained a worldwide following through touring and recording seven studio albums, two best-of compilations, concert DVDs and music videos. Their 1993 album “Bloody Kisses” went platinum, and the 1996 follow-up “October Rust” went gold.

The music world has lost a great talent, and music fans worldwide are mourning, but for our family we are mourning a beloved brother, uncle, cousin, friend and funny man. Peter Steele was a complex man, known for his brooding looks, his self-deprecating sense of humor, unique view of the world, and most of all his loyalty to his fans, friends and family. Survived by five sisters, the eldest living sister notes that he was more than our brother, he was our son. His untimely death is tragic – a great loss to us and to music. The official cause of death has yet to be determined pending autopsy results, and funeral plans at present remain unknown. The family thanks fans for their loyalty to Peter and band members, but request that fans and media respect their wishes for privacy.

In addition to his success in music, Peter Steele also tried his hand at acting, appearing in HBO`s Oz and the cult classic film Bad Acid. He also composed music for the film soundtracks “Freddy vs. Jason” and “Mortal Combat”, the television movie “Nosferatu: The First Vampire”, and the soon-to-be released “Living the American Nightmare.”

Sal Abruscato: "There are not many words that can describe how you affected my life Peter. From the times of hanging in your basement as a kid, the first meetings we had about Type O Negative, to getting chased all over Europe by radical left wing groups with bomb threats and eventually creating one of the most influential albums of all time. You affected me and influenced me as an artist and as a person, you were one of the funniest and most generous friends I ever knew. It is an honor to have been there with you through the rough times we call the beginning and now the end. I am the musician I am today because of you and I thank you with all my heart my friend. I will miss you and I love you.

This is truly the end of an era. "

It's been a wonderful ride, as a fan. Thank you Peter. If it weren't for you, and in turn this LJ community, I wouldn't have met such great fans that would then become lifelong friends. God bless you on your ride to the other side, as we all...stay negative.

Please don't dress in black
When you're at his wake
Don't go there to mourn
But to celebrate

I read on a website somewhere that Kenny Hickey wrote a story....I was really curious to read it, but unfortunately the link to it was dead x_x .

Does anybody have a working link to it that they are willing to share? It would be greatly appreciated!

Peter Steele PLAYGIRL issue [29 Dec 2007|09:04am]


I didn't read anything in the "rules" about it not being OK to pimp out your eBay auction on here, but if it's not OK, please delete this thread.

I was cleaning out my home office this week and found my issue of Playgirl with Peter in it (I thought I lost it) so I put it up on eBay for any of those fans out there that aren't satisfied with just the web images.

I don't know if it helps at all, but I've been listening to this part of September Sun dozens of times, and I came up with what sounds to be like what Pete's saying:

Is droh bray tak-niq bohaus davar. Iz shov mif bushtar
Im drak syervo gervi porbo. Et berna jahrtone.

He repeats those same lines for the second part of the "bridge"

Please keep in mind that I don't know any russian at all, and that this has been done totally phonetically. I sure hope that helps anyone trying to do a translation :)

thanks thanks thanks!

Silly Russian... [03 Nov 2007|06:48am]

Does anybody have any idea what Pete's saying in Russian on September Sun? Translations would probably be fun, but they're certainly not necessicary.

It would be great, just for "singalongability".

Thanks :)

Don't Spill A Drop, Dear [17 May 2007|11:48pm]

[ mood | sore ]

Hello there, everyone. I'm new here. I've been a huge Type O Negative fan ever since I was 14 or 15... I used to have Bloody Kisses and October Rust on cassette.

Anyway, I figured that I would share my new tattoo with you all, since it is quite relevant.

Let Me Kiss The Curse AwayCollapse )

Anybody else here with Type O ink? ^_^

noob to group and saw them 4/25/07 in Dallas [07 May 2007|04:54pm]

[ mood | content ]

Hey, PitChik here. I got to see TON 4/25/07 at the Palladium Ballroom in Dallas. Considering I've been a fan since I was in high school, it was my first time seeing them, and I was not disappointed, except in my lack of funds for beer :). So needless to say I was NOT in the pit. I'll include my grainy shots from the show that I took with my camera phone since I had no pockets. I went straight from work to the show.

05-07 NYC Show -- tix for sale [02 May 2007|10:48am]

I have TWO tickets for Monday's sold out Type O show at Irving Plaza in NYC for sale on eBay. I want to go, as I saw them in Philly and enjoyed the show. Unfortunately, however, I have a disability and Irving Plaza refused to accommodate me, and without some assurances/plans, it's too dangerous for me to go to a SRO show. So, I'm selling the tickets. I paid $70 for the two and just want to recoup my investment.

Bid away!


Thank you!
