Roadrunner Records would not bound Peter to a 5 album deal he had signed as the songwriter for Carnivore. He was not allowed to shop Type O Negative to other labels. This is why the demo Repulsion/Carnivore became the first album.
Peter Steele worked for the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation until he was 29 and began touring with Type O in 1994.
Type O Negative’s first out of town show was in Atlanta, GA. A Collage radio show (Wreckage) paid to fly Peter up the day of the show so he wouldn’t miss work.
Peter Steele claimed that posing for Playgirl was nothing more than a publicity stunt. When bandmate Josh showed him the statistic that 74% of Playgirl readers were men, he says it is “something he regrets”.
