What better way to celebrate Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the calendar year, with the black-humored, doom 'n' gloom goth of Type O Negative? Fans can inject a little fun into the drudgery that is holiday shopping, courtesy of Type O!
Roadrunner Records will release a special vinyl box set exclusively via independent retailers on Black Friday, which lands on November 25th this year. Go here for more information on who is selling this incredibly limited piece.
As the first band to achieve platinum status on the Roadrunner Records roster, Type O Negative didn't rewrite the rules. They simply tore the rule book up, burned what was left of it and did whatever the hell they wanted with the smoldering ash. The result was nothing short of brilliant, as they combined dirge-like doom with head down, gothy grooves, all the while retaining the sort of signature melody that made their songs utterly memorable, infesting your brain like a virus.
Of the box set, Type O’s Johnny Kelly said, “This looks great but we’re disappointed that Roadrunner couldn’t get it together to do the scratch ‘n’ sniff cover we wanted for The Origin of the Feces.”
The vinyl box includes all Roadrunner released Type O Negative material contained within one collector's box. Each album will be issued on double green vinyl, with the album art recreated, including the controversial, rarely seen original cover of The Origin of the Feces. Type O fans know all about that cover and the anatomy which it features.
Each album will also have new, branded liner notes documenting the genesis and completion of each album.
An exclusive sticker sheet with six mini bumper stickers will also be included in this "must own" set for Type O Negative diehards. It's an instant collector's item.
This set includes the following releases:
Slow, Deep and Hard
The Origin of the Feces
World Coming Down
Life Is Killing Me
