Dead Again is the seventh and final studio album by Type O Negative, released before the death of frontman Peter Steele. It was released through SPV/Steamhammer. The band uses studio drums instead of a drum machine for the first time since their third album, Bloody Kisses. Thus, it remains the only Type O Negative studio album with Johnny Kelly's actual playing, as he was only "credited" as the drummer on the three albums prior to Dead Again.[1]

The album booklet folds out into the shape of a cross. The cover photo is a portrayal of Grigori Rasputin, the Russian mystic and associate of Tsar Nicholas II. The lettering is in a faux-Cyrillic font. Reception for Dead Again was mainly positive and resulted in the band's highest ever chart positions.

The album was re-released in February 2008, with a DVD including live performances, interviews and music videos. A separate 3LP vinyl box set that included several collectors' items was also released.

Limited edition 3 LP vinyl box set[edit]

The vinyl box set comes with a T-shirt, a 12-page booklet and a DVD disc that contains the same live footage and music videos as the Best Buy exclusive DVD, an interview, and the entire album in MP3 format. Two of the actual vinyl records are red and one is the standard black. The box itself comes in the red version of the cover art.[2]

Packaging[edit]

The CD comes in a standard jewel case with a transparent tray, but the insert folds out into the shape of a cross with Rasputin's head at the top. The media tray has the words "Снова Мертвый" (Dead Again) visible underneath along with Rasputin's autopsy information. The photograph on the back was taken in 1906, showing four young women of the Tsarist family, identified left to right as Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia Nikolaevna.
