RELEASED ON APRIL 14, 2011 TO HONOR PETER STEELE
Last year the musical world was dealt a serious blow when gothic metal titan Peter Steele tragically passed away at the age of 48. While Peter may be gone, his music and his legacy live on, and they continue to inspire musicians around the world.
To honor Peter’s memory on the anniversary of his passing, and lead a new generation of metalheads to his music, heavy metal news site Metalunderground.com has teamed up with a dozen underground bands from across the globe to release an exclusive tribute album. The tribute, entitled “All For None, None For All: A Tribute to Peter Steele,” was done in collaboration with Dan Mitchell of Beneath The Woods Studio and features twelve stellar cover songs from many stages of Peter’s career in both Type O Negative and Carnivore.
Dan Mitchell of Autumns Eyes/Beneath The Wood Studios commented: “My original idea was to find bands that were only interested in paying tribute to Peter, and not getting caught up in the politics of it all. No talks of money, labels, suits, or anyone trying to suck the life out of it. Just a straight up tribute.”
Commenting on Peter’s passing a year ago, Tennessee’s Dark Hound added “Never bowing to be what anybody else wanted him to be, Peter forged his own way and his own style and sound, something every musician should hope to accomplish. That spirit and his music will continue to inspire us and countless bands to come. R.I.P. Peter Steele, thank you for what you’ve left us.”
The track listing, which includes interpretations running the gamut from depressive rock to power metal to death metal and many stops in-between, are as follows:
1. Auvernia – “I Don’t Wanna Be Me”
2. Fairytale Abuse – “Black No. 1 (Little Miss Scare-All)”
3. Stabbingback – “Halloween in Heaven”
4. Emancer – “My Girlfriend’s Girlfriend”
5. Dead Shape Figure – “Dead Again”
6. Enthrope – “Wolf Moon (Including Zoanthropic Paranoia)”
7. Dark Hound – “Life is Killing Me”
8. A Band of Orcs – “Green Man”
9. In.Verno – “Everything Dies”
10. Blind Greed – “Christian Woman”
11. Revilement – “Sex and Violence”
12. Autumns Eyes – “Love You To Death”
Commenting on the tribute album, Metalunderground.com owner Doug Gibson stated, “From the first song I heard, I was blown away, and I continued to be impressed with each new song that came in. The end result has far exceeded my expectations in every aspect. The fact that this tribute was accomplished by a dozen underground bands makes it that much better to me – and fitting for a Metalunderground.com release.”
“All For None, None For All: A Tribute to Peter Steele” is available now in digital format with a PDF booklet for just $3 (three U.S. dollars), which is solely to cover the cost of mechanical licensing and transaction fees. Any remaining money left over will be given to charity. You can order your copy now at Metalunderground.com:
