** Many of their songs on their ''October Rust'' album qualify. Perhaps most blatantly, "Be My Druidess."

* BitingTheHandHumor: Combined with a {{Music/Beatles}} ShoutOut in "Can't Lose You" - The ending of the song includes a deliberately hard-to-understand chant that sounds similar to one heard near the end of "I Am The Walrus", which turns out to be "Everybody smokes pot / Monte Conner sucks cock". "Everybody smokes pot" is a common {{mondegreen}} for that section of "I Am The Walrus" (it's officially "everybody, up, up"), while Monte Conner was the vice president of Roadrunner while Type O Negative were on the label.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Though the band has always had '''very''' dark lyrics, the albums ''Slow, Deep, and Hard'' and ''The Origin Of The Feces'' lightened it up with healthy amounts of (dark) humor. ''Bloody Kisses'' still had quite a bit of it, but included a significant amount of dark, self-loathing songs. They went full bore into this trope with ''October Rust'', which, apart from a couple joke skits, is mostly entirely VERY dark, serious songs about break-ups, self-loathing, death, and more. This trope culminated with ''World Coming Down'', an album which Steele couldn't even listen to due to it's personal content. ''Life Is Killing Me'' was a brief return to their earlier sound, but ''Dead Again'' went back into darkness.

Founded in 1989 upon the ashes of FaceOfTheBand [[LeadBassist (and Bassist)]] Peter Steele's earlier band ''Carnivore,'' ''Type O Negative'''s SignatureStyle was [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly an unlikely mixture]] of Music/BlackSabbath, GothRock, and UsefulNotes/{{Punk}}. They often used a distinct pop / [[AlternativeIndie indie]] sensibility most visible on the ''October Rust'' album, and their lyrics were usually ''extremely'' cynical and dark, albeit with a healthy dose of BlackComedy. Notable for being one of the [[TropeMakers pioneers]] of GothicMetal. They broke up with the passing of Peter Steele in 2010.

* CreatorBreakdown / DarkerAndEdgier: ''World Coming Down'' and ''Dead Again''. Type O Negative only performed a few, if any, songs from ''World Coming Down'' after its release, as Peter Steele felt that the songs were too personal. ''Dead Again'' was made after Steele was sent to prison for narcotics possession, and had to go to rehab.
