»Blast No. 1« was premiered via Decibel Magazine on Monday 4th September. The album blends blast beats, harsh guitars and growls, along with the melancholy and atmosphere that was always an essential part of Type O Negative’s music. This tribute is brave, vulgar and extending the boundaries of both grindcore and Peter Steele’s songs.

783 Punx owner Edi comments: “When I talked to the bands, I gave them just one condition: take a slow and long Type O Negative song and convert it into short and super-fast grindcore song, but try to keep it as recognisable as possible… Easy for me to say.”

This unique compilation will be available ina variety of variants and formats from 22nd September, including deluxe CDs, boxsets, strickers, postcards, t-shirts, cassettes and more. Vinyl records will also be available from December.
