Revision as of 23:09, 27 September 2019

Dead Again is the seventh and final album by Type O Negative, released on March 13, 2007. It is the last album to be released before the band's frontman and singer Peter Steele died officially of a heart failure on April 14, 2010 when he was 48 and the resultant permanent breakup of the band.

Overview

The working title for this album was The Profit of Doom, same as the title of the third track.

Although it was released on March 13, 2007 in the USA and the majority of the world, Germany would not see its release until March 16 and other parts of Europe will not see its release until March 19.

It is the first and only Type O Negative album to be released through SPV / Steamhammer Records and is the only album to be released through a label other than Roadrunner.

The front cover shows the Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin. The lettering on the cover is in faux-Cyrillic font. The back cover shows Grand Duchesses of the Tsarist family taken back in 1906. From left to right they are Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia Nikolaevna.

Dead Again contains ten tracks and it is the longest Type O Negative album, lasting 77 minutes and 28 seconds. The average duration of a track on this album is 7 minutes and 45 seconds. Two singles were released from the album—"The Profit of Doom" and "September Sun".

The album has lyrics about drug use, death, lost love, heartbreak, and self-loathing. There are occasional times on this album where Peter's voice sounds like young Glenn Danzig. The album contains the musical elements of all of the previous Type O Negative albums molded together, as well as sounds resembling Carnivore (Pete's previous band), Black Sabbath, Bauhaus, and The Beatles. The dominant genres for this album are gothic metal and doom metal, and it has lesser amounts of thrash metal, crossover, punk, progressive metal, and psychedelic metal. The elements on this album (both lyrically and musically) are described as dirgy, gloomy, sad, depressing, uplifting and energetic.

The album reached #27 on the US Billboard 200 chart, which is the highest peak of any Type O album.

  • Chris Ayers of Exclaim! – "Goth-prog suites and standout guitar solos put Type O at the metal forefront once again."
  • Jon Eardley of Last Rites – "A top-notch production, first-class songwriting, and competent musicianship all play an integral part in making this one of 2007’s early shining moments."
  • Jeff Maki of Live-Metal.net (7.5/10) – "Welcome back Type O Negative—it's been a long time coming. Dead Again prompts the most black hair dye no.1 and vampire wannabes since their early ‘90s albums."
  • Thomas of metal.de (8/10) – "Dead Again presents itself at least as diverse as its predecessor and combines the quintessence of almost 20 years of Type O Negative."
  • Lord of the Wasteland of METAL RULES (4.5/5) – "Dead Again is among Type O Negative’s finest moments and with the riffs coming a mile-a-minute, the Gothic leanings have really been pushed to the backburner in favor of a more straight-forward, stripped-down approach."
  • Jeff Brinn of Schwegweb.com – "Dead Again proves that there are still a few acts out there that keep it real and stay very true to the roots of what put them on the map as a true metal band in the damn first place."
  • Reini of Stormbringer (4.5/5) – "Dead Again is on a par with Bloody Kisses and that was finally the commercially most successful work in the Type O Negative history!"
