A few days ago, Type O Negative’s Bloody Kisses turned 23 years old and since the day of release back in 1993, it’s regarded as one of the most successful records of the band. It contains some massive big hits like “Black No.1 (Little Miss Scare-All)” and “Christian Woman” but also became the first record to obtain a gold and platinum certification to its label Roadrunner Records. The chronological achievement did not happen in vain and encouraged some random internet hero to celebrate its anniversary in a very unexpected way.
A never-heard demo version of Bloody Kisses surfaced on the internet a few days ago featuring early drafts of most of the tracks in the record. The source for the material appears to be from an Australian administrators of the unofficial Type O Negative forum and they are definitely different versions than the ones written for the final release. As Metalsucks pointed out, some of these “demo” tracks appeared on the 1994 bootleg Live, Rare & Hard but they’re ultimately different than those ones.
What do you think of these demos? Do you like the way the final release ended up or do you prefer this new version? Take a listen at the entire demo version below and let us know. We will be jamming this the rest of the weekend anyway.
