"A Black Day for Music" Type O Negative's Peter Steele has died.

Peter Steele, frontman of the legendary metal band Type O Negative passed away last night, April 14th, from heart failure. Bandmates Josh Silver and Kenny Hickey and manager Mike Renault confirmed this news today to various media outlets. Before their statements were released most people believed rumors of his death to be a joke. Steele pulled an infamous gag in 2005 after the band was signed to SPV Records. A picture of a tombstone bearing Peter Steele's name with the dates 1962-2005 was posted on their website. Everyone was convinced he was deceased, pandemonium ensued. He was infinitely amused. 
Here is a video for one of my personal favorites by Type O Negative, Black No. 1. Rest in peace to the giant, deep-voiced, morbidly humorous Peter Steele.






And of course, you can't have Type O Negative without the quintessential gothic love song, Love You To Death.
