Here is my confession.
Labelling Peter Steele as a heavy metal musician, or even as a musician, belittles his contribution. His work transcended any genres, or the medium of music. His palette as an artist included wisdom, humor, manhood, respect, and a volcanic creativity that just happened to be unleashed in the context of a rock band. If not that, the natural resource that was Peter Steele would have erupted in some other way, believe me. In the end though, we were blessed to have such a great artist.
RIP Petrus Thomas Steele 1-4-1962 / 4-14-2010
This is my favorite artist ever.
