Type O Negative - September Sun

Type O Negative was a heavy metal band from Brooklyn, New York City. Although commonly viewed as a gothic metal band, Type O has also incorporated elements of doom metal and thrash metal. Their dramatic lyrical emphasis on themes of romance, depression, and death has resulted in the nickname "The Drab Four" (in homage to The Beatles "Fab Four" moniker).

The band went Platinum with 1993's Bloody Kisses, and has gained an enormous following with seven studio albums, two best-of compilations, and concert DVDs. Their most recent album is 2007's Dead Again.

On April 14, 2010, frontman Peter Steele died of heart failure. It is unknown at this point whether or not Type O Negative has broken up or plans to continue on with a new singer, but it is suspected the band will not continue without Steele as he will be very hard to replace.
So today we will let a tear drop fall down and honor this band with a tune.

Todays tune "September Sun" is taken from seventh and final album Dead Again, released 2007.
