Dead Again

Just one more week till the release of Type O Negative's newest album Dead Again. It's been almost 4 years since the release of their last studio album, Life Is Killing Me. This was mainly due to Peter Steele's incarceration in Riker's Island and "the psych ward at King's County Hospital", both stints apparently caused by his heavy use of cocaine and alcohol. But after Steele's much deserved rest and a fresh start on the band's new label, SPV Records, Type O are ready to deliver us a new album. Gracing the cover is none other than the legendary Mad Russian Monk, Grigori Rasputin. The track listing is as follows:

1. Dead Again
2. Tripping a Blind Man
3. The Profits of Doom (confirmed as the new Single)
4. September Sun
5. Halloween in Heaven (with Lycia's Tara VanFlower)
6. These Three Things(now playing on type o
7. She Burned Me Down
8. Some Stupid Tomorrow
9. An Ode to Locksmiths
10. Hail and Farewell to Britain

30 second previews of each song can be heard here on Barnes & Noble's website. You can also stream the full song These Three Things on the entrance of the band's official website.(Clicking on the my link to their site will take you directly there) They are also getting ready to go on tour with Celtic Frost (shows after April 9th) and Brand New Sin on March 28th. Unfortunately there are no venues near us that we can afford to take. Man, I would love to see Type O Negative live again. This is looking like it is shaping up to be a great album.

Anybody in or near the Richmond/Charlottesville area who thinks they might check out the show at the Outback Lounge on the 24th, supporting them on this one stop will be another local Richmond underground favorite RPG. This will be one hell of a good show. If you go you might just run into myself and my wife there too, 'cause we're not missing this show at all.
