TYPE O NEGATIVE guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly look back at their time with the iconic goth metal band on this week’s edition of The Loaded Radio Podcast
TYPE O NEGATIVE, the iconic gothic metal band known for their unique blend of dark humor and brooding melodies, delivered another dose of their signature sound with their 2003 album, “Life Is Killing Me.” Released on June 17, 2003, this album marked a significant addition to the band’s discography.
“Life Is Killing Me” retained the band’s characteristic mix of doom-laden riffs, Peter Steele‘s deep, haunting vocals, and lyrics that often tread the line between melancholic and macabre. The album explored a wide range of themes, from the struggles of daily life to the band’s notorious wit, all set against a backdrop of heavy, atmospheric music.
TYPE O NEGATIVE formed in Brooklyn, New York, in 1989. Led by the charismatic and enigmatic frontman Peter Steele, the band gained notoriety for their dark and melancholic sound, blending elements of doom metal, gothic rock, and industrial music.
With a unique blend of dark humor and introspection, their albums, including “Bloody Kisses” and “October Rust,” became iconic in the gothic and metal music scenes. Tragically, Peter Steele‘s death in 2010 marked the end of the band, but their influential music continues to captivate listeners worldwide.
In the interview, Kenny and Johnny discuss the turbulent times while making the “Life Is Killing Me” album, they’re favorite TYPE O NEGATIVE songs, a possible live album and much more.
