The vinyl collectors of the world have had a lot to rejoice about this week as a list of releases has been revealed for this year’s Record Store Day Black Friday on November 23rd. And for heavy music fans, the biggest announcement just may be two releases featuring the music of Type O Negative.
The biggest of the pair is the 25th anniversary edition of the Brooklyn goth metal outfit’s third album, Bloody Kisses. Originally released in 1993, this was the last full-length to feature the original lineup of the band, as drummer Sal Abruscato quit the group later that year, and holds the distinction of being the first Roadrunner Records release to achieve gold and platinum sales.
This new edition of Bloody Kisses will arrive as a triple LP pressed on 180-gram green and black vinyl, with the original album stretched across two records joined in a deluxe gatefold package by a third disc featuring bonus material, including their cover of Black Sabbath’s “Black Sabbath” and Rick Rubin’s mix of their version of Seals & Crofts’ “Summer Breeze.” Co-released by Roadrunner Records and Run Out Groove Vinyl, this will be the first time all this music will have been released on wax. The deluxe reissue will be limited to 5,000 copies, and will be available at independent US and Canadian record stores.
Also being released on November 23rd is a split 7” featuring fellow Roadrunner band Trivium covering Type O’s “I Don’t Wanna Be Me” on one side, and the original version of the song on the other.
