RR07 Type O Negative – Dead Again

Listen:Apple PodcastsSpotifySoundcloud

Steve and Remfry sit down to discuss the seventh and final album by NY gothic doom merchants Type O Negative. Whilst the album had a decent critical reception, Dead Again is rarely given the credit it’s due, with most media attention focusing on the (admittedly brilliant) Bloody Kisses and October Rust. But Dead Again, whilst not perfect, contains some utterly definitive and fascinating insights into Type O Negative and more pertinently Pete Steele. Released three years before his untimely death, there is an irony surrounding the album in that it’s the most morbid record by a band practically obsessed with death. Paradoxically, it’s also Type O’s lightest album, containing many of the bands fastest, punkier cuts.
