Type O Negative’s Peter Steele Dead at 48

The rumors started just before midnight last night, and now, it appears that they’re true. Peter Steele, the bassist and frontman for Brooklyn heavy metallers Type O Negative who also spent time in Carnivore and Fallout, reportedly passed away Wednesday (April 14) at the age of 48 from what’s believed to be heart failure. Type O keyboardist confirmed Steele’s death to Blabbermouth. An official cause of death has not yet been released.

Noisecreep could not confirm Steele’s death with the band’s management or label. Calls had not been returned by press time. But the band’s Web site does indicate that fans can “expect statements from the band and family later today.”

The news was first spread in a series of Twitter posts from former Fuse VJ Juliya ‘Mistress Juliya’ Chernetsky and radio personality Full Metal Jackie. Almost immediately, the news led to an outpouring of sorrow from Steele’s contemporaries as well as those he’d influenced.

Hatebreed would like to extend our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Peter Steele,” Hatebreed says in a statement. “He is one of the best guys we’ve ever toured with and a true legend! There will NEVER be anyone else like him. May he rest in peace.”

Biohazard’s Evan Seinfeld write on his site that Steele was “my single biggest musical influence… who named Biohazard…I f—king miss you so much already… I love you brother, I hope you are in a better place.”

Dan Lorenzo of Hades explained that “all of us band guys think we write great songs, but when I listen to Type O, I know that they, and Pete in particular, wrote a bunch of songs that were on another level from the rest of us mortals musically. I don’t use the words ‘musical genius’ together often, but in Pete’s case it fits. And it’s true. Today is a very sad day for me.”

Icarus Witch bassist Jason Myers calls Steele “a true icon, enigma, musical genius and hell of a nice man who I had the pleasure of talking with on several occasions dating back to the early ’90s. His work with Type O Negative was groundbreaking and a large influence on myself and other members of Icarus Witch.”
