Type O Negative are a very versatile band. On this album some songs are slow, gothic dirges; others doomy, sludgy and midtempo; and a couple are faster with a punk/thrash vibe. All the songs have that element of darkness. Vocalist Peter Steele is in fine form. You'll hear his trademark deep baritone croon, but also regular style singing and some angry and aggressive vocals. He also injects a lot of dark humor into his lyrics.
Dead Again is a very ambitious undertaking, and it succeeds. And even though most of the songs are really long, it's actually quite accessible. The songs are well-written, and Peter Steele sounds really good. Type O Negative seems rejuvenated with this album, one of their best in many years.
