Before Type O Negative would make a name for themselves with their gloom/goth rock/metal, they released 'Slow, Deep and Hard.' Opener "Unsuccessfully Coping With the Natural Beauty of Infidelity" is a 12-minute rant from frontman Pete Steele about cheating girlfriends and the heartache that goes with it, while "Xero Tolerance" continues this with killing the girlfriend's new boyfriend, and "Prelude to Agony" finishes all this up with killing the cheating girlfriend. Other songs like "Untermensch" and "Glass Walls of Limbo" deal with topics of hatred and introspection, and the final track, "Gravitational Constant" sums up the entire album with a tale of suicide. The catchy yet heavy gloom/goth/whatever songs bleed into one another, making "Slow, Deep, and Hard" more than an album and the tracks more than just songs--it makes everything, the entire concept of what Type O (and mainly Pete Steele) stand for.
