During the recording of World Coming Down, Kenny used a Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier, and still uses it, along with a Mesa Boogie Mark IV, as a backup.
His main setup consists of a Mesa Boogie TriAxis preamp and TC Electronics G-Force effects processor being sent to a Mesa Boogie Simul-Class 2:Ninety power amp into a (or several) Mesa Boogie 4x12 cabinet(s).
Type O Negative is a heavy metal band from Brooklyn, New York City.
Although commonly viewed as a gothic metal band, Type O has also incorporated elements of doom metal and thrash metal. Their dramatic lyrical emphasis on themes of romance, depression, and death has resulted in the nickname "The Drab Four" (in homage to The Beatles' "Fab Four" moniker).
The band went Platinum with 1993's Bloody Kisses, and Gold with 1996's October Rust, and has gained an enormous following with seven studio albums, two best-of compilations, and concert DVDs. Their most recent album is 2007's Dead Again.
On April 14, 2010 lead vocalist, bassist (as well as principal songwriter) Peter Steele died from heart failure.
Rock On and Rest in Peace
