Type O Negative, co-headliner on the current tour with Cradle of Filth, has been plowing its Bauhaus-meets-Black-Sabbath rut for a long time, to little avail. One psychedelic novelty tune ("My Girlfriend's Girlfriend") doth not a career make. But the band's latest single, "I Don't Wanna Be Me," displays enough self-awareness in its title to win Pete "Buns of" Steele a momentary reprieve. And it almost rocks.
Opening act Moonspell is probably the world's premier band in whatever genre you get by mixing Goth with thrash. If that's your thing, then Moonspell's your band. Extra points because their singer wears a cassock onstage.
