A year ago we lost one of heavy metal’s iconic voices with the untimely death of Type O Negative’s Peter Steele. Twelve bands hailing from Europe and both North and South America have lent their talents to pay tribute to the gothic metal giant and ensure his music continues to be played by fans all across the world.

In collaboration with Beneath the Woods studios and a dozen of the finest underground bands, Metalunderground.com is very proud to announce that “All For None, None For All: A Tribute To Peter Steele” is now officially available. All twelve tracks from the album and a PDF booklet containing words from the bands are available for $3, which covers the costs of the mechanical license and the transaction fees. Metalunderground.com will be donating any leftover profits to charity.

You can buy your copy of the album as an immediate digital download starting today.

We would like to personally thank all of the bands involved for their fantastic contributions, and to all our readers who have stuck by us throughout the years. There's a little something for everyone in this tribute album, and we hope you'll love it just as much as we do.

Dan Mitchell of Beneath The Woods Studios also added, "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. While we had people from Dave Ellefson to Anathema showing interest, their schedules are too busy from prior commitments.

“If you look back at Type O Negative's catalogue, they covered various songs by artists that were much different from the original. There were most definitely fans of Neil Young who hated their rendition of 'Cinnamon Girl,' and Seals and Crofts fans who hated 'Summer Breeze.' There were even fans of Sabbath who hated Type O's rendition of a Sabbath song.

“However, Johnny Kelly put it best when he said ‘These are what those songs would have sounded like if WE wrote them, its our interpretation of the material.’ That was actually his response to me commenting on how ‘different’ the music on this tribute is.”

To hear what the bands have to offer with their cover songs, two teaser trailers are available below. The groups involved in the tribute have also conducted a series of interviews with Metalunderground to talk about Peter Steele’s legacy and the future of metal icons. You can read about how Autumns Eyes, Dark Hound, and Fairytale Abuse approached their cover songs and how Peter Steele influenced them.

Once again, the track listing is 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"

AWESOME! This album absolutely rocks! Every band stepped up and went above and beyond on their recordings. I am a huge fan of each one of these bands. I hope we, Blind Greed were able to do the same.

I am deeply disappointed in this. Money talks, but I ain't buyin'. Those bands represented here will never ever reach even half of the presence of the heart and soul put into original music. After reading the statement of man behind the idea, this is all I could say: c'mon, get a job!
I did not get the point of this release, right?
Sure, because there isn't one...

Thanks for checking it out CorpusUpir! There's a thread over in the forum for discussing the album. You should head over and let us know what you thought after you've listened through a few times. We'd love to hear what everyone thought of each song.

And what have YOU done to honor Peter Steele lately, vajnz? Make it public so we can all go check it out and let you know what we think of YOUR hard work. Oh, and I do believe that recording engineer is his job. So, check there!

Just listened to the samples and I'm more than a little impressed. Consider me sold. I have about a hundred bucks of music buying to do tomorrow and this will be a part of it.

I think the CONCEPT is great!!! The diversity of bands and to the extents they have moved away from the TON sound falls right in line with the way Peter would cover a song. Every cover TON EVER did...they "made their own". That being said I really didn't get into most of the songs...just not for me..: )..Well I like Autumns Eyes version of Love you to death!!! I am just old and spoiled...after being a TON fan for almost two decades...I like type-o music in my type-o music :P...Have a good one TON fans; )

I think it was okay, but not really as good as I expected. Most of it just doesn't work for me at all. I think the Autumn band was by far the best one, that is actually a pretty good cover.

Good try, but its like when someone gives a bad present, its the thought that counts right?

Call me oldschool, but I still prefer to buy albums in CD format. Is this only available to purchase as a download, or will it be made to buy in CD form soon also? If anyone could let me know, I'd appreciate it. Thanks! Stay negative. \m/

^^^Download only. I have had many requests for a CD version as well, but I believe the idea was to keep the costs down.
