Slow, Deep and Hard is the debut album by Type O Negative, released on June 14, 1991.

Overview

The album, originally titled None More Negative, has a rawness that was prominent in Peter Steele's previous band, Carnivore, but it incorporates elements that became standard for Type O Negative, merging styles including doom metal, gothic rock, new wave and industrial music. Slow, Deep and Hard is a semi-autobiographical album with heavy amounts of black humor, based on a relationship in which Peter Steele was involved in. The lyrics on this album are mainly about broken romance and a cheating lover. In keeping with the band's notable humor, the cover of Slow, Deep and Hard is a blur picture of a penis penetrating a vagina. Despite the cover is embarrassing to many people, it is the Roadrunner's 8th greatest album cover according to RoadrunnerRecords.com.

Roadrunner Records released a remastered version of Slow, Deep and Hard on March 24, 2009.

Reviews

  • Christoph of metal.de (9/10) – "Musically as well as content far away from all other Type O Negative releases, the lazy and also completely uninhibited Slow, Deep and Hard acts more like an unofficial third Carnivore album."
  • John Chedsey of Satan Stole My Teddy Bear – "This album straddled the fence between the lush, more gothic overtones of 1993's Bloody Kisses and Steele's earlier days in Carnivore."
  • CaptainAaarrrggghhh of Sputnikmusic (3.5/5) – "It’s darker, dirtier, and more immature than any Type O further work."
