    Default Peter Steele, Type O Negative Singer, Has Died

    Peter Steele, Type O Negative Singer, Has Died
    CBS News Confirms Death of Popular Gothic Metal Performer; Cause Appears to Be Heart Failure
    CBS News has confirmed that Peter Steele, front man for Type O Negative, has died.

    In an email, Mike Renault, the band's manager said, "Peter passed away last night. As of now it appears to have been heart failure. That's all the details we have right now."

    Type O Negative's Web site left a message to their fans this morning around 5:15 AM. It read, "The forums have been re-opened. Please play nice and expect statements from the band and family later today. Thank you for your understanding and support."

    Upset fans have been writing on Type O Negative's MySpace page mourning the death of the singer. Some posts said, "RIP Peter, you will be missed" and "I just heard the news and I can't even function."

    Steele, whose real name is Petrus T. Ratajczyk and hailed from Brooklyn, N.Y., was known as a bassist, singer, and as the band's website said, a "control freak." The 6'7'' composer of gothic metal was also known for his dark humor and low heavy voice.

    Before joining Type O Negative, he was in the metal group Fallout and the band Carnivore.

    I was a bit leery of this headline this morning (since Pete "died" in 2005, if I recall) but it seems it's correct.

    Sad, that. Fond memories of Carnivore's "Retaliation" opus back in... Well, I was a youth.

    Rock on, Pete! \m/
