Type O Negative - Bloody Kisses (2xLP - Black Vinyl)
Bloody Kisses is the third studio album by the successful gothic metal band Type O Negative. The last recording to feature the band’s original line-up is an album of an exceptionally high level. Frontman Peter Steele’s satirical humor is mixed in heavy soundscapes and creepy guitar riffs. They have matured as songwriters and the sounds goes from the doom to the trash metal. Bloody Kisses starts off with two of the group’s most universally recognized songs, “Christian Woman” and “Black No.1”. These tracks are recognizable in their own way, displaying all of the attributes and idiosyncrasies that make this band so unique. This is the album where Type O Negative truly found the sound that they would explore different facets of and expand upon until their front man’s untimely death.
