Current Mood: sadsad
Current Music: Love You To Death - Type O Negative
It is as-yet unconfirmed, but it seems very likely that Peter Steele, the lead singer and bassist for goth metal outfit Type O Negative, died of heart failure today.

I listened to their music a lot when I was young, and still listen to it every now and then when the right mood strikes me. I have happy memories tied up in their songs, as friends and I used to spin their CDs when hanging out together. Steele had an absolutely incredible voice, and I've never heard anything else quite like it - at times deep and growling, others strong and melodic. Very saddened to hear of his passing. :(
