R.I.P. PETER STEELE (TYPE O NEGATIVE)

“Connecticut hardcore/metal masters HATEBREED have released the following statement:

HATEBREED would like to extend our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Peter Steele. He is one of the best guys we’ve ever toured with and a true legend! There will NEVER be anyone else like him. May he rest in peace.”

As previously reported, TYPE O NEGATIVE keyboardist Josh Silverconfirmed to BLABBERMOUTH.NET that Peter Steele passed away yesterday (Wednesday, April 14) at the age of 48. No official cause of death has yet been released, but it is believed that Steele died of heart failure.

Steele was born Petrus T. Ratajczyk on January 4, 1962 in Brooklyn, New York. He stood 6′ 7″ (201 cm) tall, and had a low, bass-heavy voice, which was one of the most recognizable features in TYPE O NEGATIVE‘s music.

Before forming TYPE O NEGATIVE, Steele played for the metal groupFALLOUT and the thrash band CARNIVORE.”
