MSRcast Pays Tribute To PETER STEELE

The latest episode of MSRcast ("Mainstream Resistance" podcast), brought to you by Metal Injection Radio, has been released and it is a special episode playing tribute to TYPE O NEGATIVE frontman Peter Steele. The people behind the podcast state, "We play songs that range throughout his career, including CARNIVORE, TYPE O NEGATIVE, IOMMI, and a special cover version of 'Christian Woman' by GRAVEWORM. We also play some special voicemail messages left by fans of Peter Steele, including Mark Strigl from the 'Talking Metal' podcast."

Check out the podcast using the audio player below.

MSRcast has been cranking out shows for almost five years and is coming up on its 100th episode.

Steele passed away Wednesday evening (April 14) from heart failure. He was 48.

Born in 1962, Steele played in a number of hardcore bands around his native Brooklyn before starting CARNIVORE, a controversial thrash band whose overt sarcasm and nihilistic views were the genesis for his most enduring and successful project, TYPE O NEGATIVE.

When reached for comment, Monte Conner, Senior VP A&R at Roadrunner Records, told Billboard.com, "Peter Steele was an integral thread in the fabric of Roadrunner Records, having been with us from 1985 to 2005.

"TYPE O NEGATIVE kicked down doors for Roadrunner, with 'Bloody Kisses' giving us our first gold record in November 1995 and our first success at commercial radio with 'Christian Woman'. To this day, artistically it is one of the defining records on this label as well as a universally regarded classic in the heavy metal, hard rock and goth rock genres.

"I will always treasure my memories of working with a true artist like Peter Steele, and fondly remember the respect he showed me and others here as well as his deadpan, black sense of humor.

"While the music world suffers a huge loss with Peter's passing, his legacy will surely endure."
