4/5 ·
Warthur
Based on what I've explored of their discography so far, Type O Negative seem to be a remarkably consistent band. Take October Rust - anyone who enjoyed Bloody Kisses or Life Is Killing me will find more of the same sort of doomy gothic metal with a sense of humour that those albums offer. (It even has a joke intro, much like Bloody Kisses did). But does this get samey or stagnant? I wouldn't say so; the band find plenty of ways to shake up the formula, including throwing in a Neil Young cover (Cinnamon Girl) this time around, a move which works far better than I'd have expected it to.
