Type O Negative "October Rust (25th Anniversary Edition)" 2xLP (Green/Black Vinyl)
October Rust is the band’s fourth studio album, released in 1996 on Roadrunner Records. The album has more ballads and less of the doom metal sound of previous or subsequent albums. It also features a heavy cover of Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl."
This is the first album with Johnny Kelly credited as the band's drummer, although programmed drums are used on the album as well. It is the first of the band's albums with a "joke intro"; in this case, "Bad Ground", which is 38 seconds of low-level buzzing, meant to sound as if the listener's speakers are incorrectly plugged in. The 2 tracks listed as “Untitled” are humorous untitled spoken word intros and outros to the album, respectively, with the band downplaying the recording of the album.
Another production technique employed on the album is the use of very abrupt endings and segues to a few of the songs, heard on the tracks "Green Man", "Red Water", and "Haunted.”
The first stand-alone vinyl release in North America for the 25th Anniversary.
