In my lifetime, I’ve heard hundreds of bands that have come and gone, but rarely have I missed a band’s music as much as I miss Type O Negative’s. With the sudden loss of iconic, multitalented frontman Peter Steele, the band was laid to rest permanently in April 2010. But every year during the Halloween season, I not only listen to Type O, but I find it necessary to visit the grave of an old friend. So there’s no better playlist for this time of year than one from the band that believed “every day was Halloween.”
4. “Wolf Moon (Including Zoanthropic Paranoia)” (from October Rust, 1996)
A fan favorite. The band already had a vampire song, so this was quite logical.
