About this album

October Rust is the fourth album by Type O Negative. It was released in 1996, and has a more gothic rock feel than earlier albums. This is the first album to feature Johnny Kelly credited as the band’s drummer, though in a 2007 interview with Dave Manack for dreadcentral.com keyboardist and co-producer, Josh Silver confessed that all the drum parts on “October Rust” and the band’s two subsequent studio albums (World Coming Down and Life is Killing Me) were programmed. October Rust has more ballads and less of the punk/metal sound of previous or subsequent albums. It also features a (much heavier) cover of Neil Young’s “Cinnamon Girl.”

It is the second of their albums to introduce the “joke intro”; in this case, the intro, “Bad Ground”, is 38 seconds of low-level buzzing, meant to sound as if the listener’s speakers are incorrectly plugged in. The second and fifteenth tracks are humorous untitled intros and outros to the album, respectively, with the band downplaying the recording of the album. Another strange technique employed on the album is the use of very abrupt endings to a few of the songs, like “Green Man”, “Red Water”, and “Haunted”.

“October Rust” sees the band use a drum machine for the first time, although Johnny Kelly is still credited as drummer. Studio drums would not reappear until 2007’s Dead Again.

The third track “Love You to Death” was covered by Polish gothic/progressive metal band Moonlight.

    One of those elusive perfect albums. Great metal base notes, mid notes full of atmospheric goth synth, and fun pop rock top notes. Not a single misstep!

    My desert island disc. As close to perfection as an album can get, for me. It has everything going for it. I remember hearing this album for the first time at twelve years of age and had never heard anything like it. Still haven't, if I'm honest. Not even kinda close. Perfect for hot, sweaty, summer evenings; bitterly cold, winter nights and everything in between. I don't think I can properly stress how much this collection of songs has meant to me and continues to do so.
