Type O NegativeType O Negative was an American gothic / doom metal band formed in Brooklyn, New York City in 1989. Their lyrical emphasis on themes of romance, depression and death resulted in the nickname “The Drab Four” (in homage to The Beatles’ “Fab Four” moniker).

Members Kenny Hickey and Johnny Kelly stated in a November 2010 interview with French music magazine Rock Hard that the band would not continue.

Gothic Metal

GOTHIC METAL (1990-present)
