I've been wondering about this for a long time:
Anyone have any idea what Peter Steele used to program the drums on their albums (From October Rust to Life is Killing Me)?
They have such a distinct sound to them but I can't find any info anywhere since it wasn't openly talked about for ages that the drums were programmed.

I believe that they said in some interview that they are programmed drums. But have to remember that they used to joke with media and spread false rumours just for fun (fex. that Peter Steele tombstone years before he actually needed one)

Are they programmed, dont know and definetaly dont want to listen those records. I just respect Carnivore too much that dont want to know what crap they did years later.

are you sure this isnt just another type o joke? i dont see why theyd need programmed drums ever, considering they always had a real drummer. first ive heard and they never sound fake, i'm a huge fan of their music. could just be a joke like "The Bensonhoist Lesbian Choir", which is just all of them doing harmonized/backing vocals on their lps.

"Slow Deep and Hard", "Bloody Kisses" Sal played drums.

EVERYTHING ELSE except "Dead Again" = a drum machine.
"Dead Again" was Johnny Kelly's first time recording live drums on a TYPE O record.

I know this for a fact.

why though? hes credited as the drummer on the records. i dont see the point Type O is trying to make if they had a drum machine instead of using him.

Pete was quite the perfectionist, as was Josh.
Josh would have a good answer to this question, I'm sure.
It's too bad the guy wants absolutely nothing to do with music anymore, which is a damn shame.

Josh's interview on the last TYPE O dvd is some of the funniest shit EVER!

This is 100% factual. It was actually pretty well known within the bands friends and whatnot. Glenn Danzig said he always thought it was a shame that Johnny Kelly only played on one of those albums.

Cheers for clearing this up to people.

Don't believe the hype.
Apparently it was stated that after Bloody Kisses the drums were all programmed. Then, at the time of Life Of Life Is Killing Me it was stated that Kelly performed on an electronic drum kit.
I still believe Johnny Kelly beat the drums on the albums, whether it was an electronic or a conventional drum set.

Maybe Peter and Josh programmed the drums for demoing the songs, but Kelly did perform on the recordings.

My two favorites !

Perfectionnist my ass... It sucks that they did this. Anyway I'm not fond of those albums so, it's not that bad. But still, it's kind of a shock to learn that haha.
