''Bloody Kisses'' is the third album by Brooklyn band Type O Negative. It marked significant stylistic growth for the band in terms of songwriting and production values, and it is also the last recording to feature Sal Abruscato on drums. The album further established Type O Negative motifs, such as including cover songs restylized into gloomy Gothic metal, featuring sample-heavy soundscapes in between songs, and dry, satirical humor. This album includes a cover of the Seals and Crofts song "Summer Breeze".
''Bloody Kisses'' was the first album on Roadrunner Records to achieve gold and platinum certification.
The most successful single from ''Bloody Kisses'' was the song "Black No.1 (Little Miss Scare-All)", which poked fun at (and paid tribute to) gothic subculture stereotypes. A radio edit of the song achieved modest airplay and the song has become a staple of Type O Negative's live show. The video even appeared on ''Beavis and Butt-Head'', where it received a positive reaction from the duo.
The tracks "Kill All The White People" and "We Hate Everyone" were written as a response to the controversy over the bands' alleged racist sentiments that were born after a tour in Europe and due to Peter Steele's previous band Carnivore's explicit lyrics. They feature lyrics mocking the whole issue. These songs were later omitted from the digipak release of this album since they differ stylistically from the rest of the tracks. - Wikipedia
