That's bananas

Jeff Wagner is pissed. The author of “Mean Deviation: Four Decades Of Progressive Heavy Metal” and former Metal Maniacs editor is pulling together a book on Peter Steele and Type O Negative.

Sweden’s Carnivore Change Name

She likes Peter Steele

That’s right, my childrens. This is kind of overdue, if you ask me — but cool that they took it upon themselves to change their name, and not waited for the inevitable lawsuit.

Peter Steele Died One Year Ago Today

Type O Negative mastermind Peter Steele

I know…where does the time go? Soon, we’ll be marking Paul Gray’s one year anniversary, and then Dio’s. Last year was fucked up. But if I am going to be honest, it was Peter Steele’s death that hurt me the most. I am from New York; I was born in Brooklyn, raised on Long Island, […]
