Peter Steele | Peter Steele Died | Gothic metal Band Type O Negative

Peter Steele born on 4th January 1962 in Brooklyn, New York,was the lead singer, bassist, and composer for the Gothic metal band Type O Negative.

Steele has also revealed in recent interviews that Type O Negative’s split from Roadrunner Records, aside from a poor offer, had to do with an allegedly unauthorized release of a Best Of compilation.Additionally, he later revealed on MTV’s Headbangers Ball that the new alliance with SPV Records is probably his favorite thing about Dead Again from a production standpoint.

In April 2007, Steele revealed that he began identifying himself as Roman Catholic in recent years, after decades of self-professed atheism. In an interview with Decibel magazine, Steele explains “There are no atheists in foxholes, they say, and I was a foxhole atheist for a long time. But after going through a midlife crisis and having many things change very quickly, it made me realize my mortality. And when you start to think about death, you start to think about what’s after it. And then you start hoping there is a God. For me, it’s a frightening thought to go nowhere. I also can’t believe that people like Stalin and Hitler are gonna go to the same place as Mother Teresa.”

Peter Steele has died of heart failure on 14th April 2010.
