Type O Negative is the best metal band of all time. Never released a bad album on the contrary every album by them is a certified classic. And Peter Steele was a god among men. His voice made the gayest lesbian and straightest man question their sexuality. Your wrong if you disagree.

Type O Negative is evidence that if you're going to start a goth band, you have to really lean into it with no compromises. If you want me to believe in it, I want to see bats flying out from underneath your vampire cape. They were also the only ones who really pulled that particular fusion of goth and doom metal off and no band has ever sounded like them – like they're impossible to copy. Steel's voice was so distinct.

Goth is fundamentally romantic. It's not rebellious like punk music is, nor has it ever been "political" like industrial music. Type O Negative wrote a lot of love songs and they had a large female fanbase. But it's also thoroughly masculine so it was something dudes enjoyed. Love is a very intense emotion – you might say it's stronger than hatred – which is gave their music a lot of power.

Here's another goth band on the German schlager-disco pop wing, but it's a similar thing where they just lean into it without any compromises. Like….. gothic is inherently absurd at some level which is why the only way to pull it off is to own it.

The other interesting thing about the genre is that it's actually pretty mature in the content. Gothic is caricatured as teenage rebellion but it tends to have an older fanbase these days. Type O Negative had their potty humor but the romantic themes seem more grown-up than anything else with this "let's sit around and have a glass of red wine and appreciate each other… but spookily…"

Naw. Like Type O was great, but honestly I like Carnivore's debut better than World Coming Down - though maybe some of Type O's other albums are better than that one, IDK. And there's a whole heap of metal bands I like better, goth bands too. Maybe they're the best goth metal band tho.
