Top 10 Songs on Type O Negative's the Origin of the Feces

The Origin of the Feces is the 2nd studio album by Type O Negative, released through Roadrunner records in 1992.

What's intresting about this album was recorded in a studio, but it was produced to sound as if it had been recorded at a live show by adding crowd noises, banter with the fictitious audience, and even a song stopping because the venue supposedly had received a bomb threat. This was done to simulate some controversy the band had on tour in Europe for the Slow, Deep and Hard tour. The band is well-known among fans for weaving this type of dry humor into their often gloomy music.

Another thing that is intresting about this album is that Some of the songs are fresh arrangements of tracks that had appeared already on Slow, Deep and Hard with many of the song titles being deliberately miswritten.

This album also started the tradition of Type O Negative covering songs and translating them into their Gothic Doom Metal style.

The original album cover is a actually a close up of Peter Steele's sphincter, on most reissues of the album, the cover was changed to a green and black version of the 1493 painting by Michael Wolgemut, The Dance of Death. The album's title is an obvious pun and a reference to Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species
