The tree in the photo above was planted on Monday, November 21 in the name of the late Peter Steele, former frontman for Carnivore and Type O Negative and former employee of the New York City Parks Department.
Said former Type O Negative drummer Johnny Kelly, "[The oak tree planting is] something that's been a long time in the making. A lot of fans took it upon themselves to do something special for Peter. It is something that is in the true spirit of what Peter was about and who he was. This Peter truly would've appreciated."
Type O Negative's six Roadrunner releases (Slow, Deep and Hard; The Origin of the Feces; Bloody Kisses; October Rust; World Coming Down; and Life is Killing Me) will be reissued in a deluxe vinyl box tomorrow and available for purchase in independent record stores as part of Record Store Day.
