Pete Steele attained near-legendary status when Type O Negative took off in the early 90's, but before that he helmed Carnivore, a street-level thrash band that put out two albums in the mid-80's. Pete's vocals actually weren't too dissimilar from his later work, though the music was clearly of a different ilk. They performed the occasional reunion gig well after their original disbandment, though that ended with Steele's death in 2010. In 2017 two former members decided to reform, both as a new beginning and as a tribute to Steele, and thus Carnivore A.D. was born.
