The iconic voice of Peter Steele as lead singer in Type O Negative. A Brooklyn boy who made it big, or a least had a significant impact on music in the 90s, and I for one bought the album.
At towering 6ft 8in he must’ve been an intimidating presence on stage and his voice gave him significant fame.
Unfortunately, he had a significant drug addiction, most likely to his sudden rise to fame, and that haunted him in his later years.
He was a heart warrior and was taken from the World in 2007 due to heart failure. Although he was a devout atheist, he converted to Catholicism in 2003 and turned to God in the last few years of his life.
I beg to serve, your wish is my law
Now close those eyes and let me love you to death
Shall I prove I mean what I’m saying, begging
I say the beast inside me’s gonna get ya, get ya, get…
Let me love you too
Let me love you to death
