Carnivore released their self-titled debut album Carnivore in January of 1985. For this album, the band spelled their names in what they thought were “exotic” ways. In September of 1987 they released their second album, Retaliation. Soon after their second album was released, the band broke up and Peter Steele formed a new band called Subzero, which would later be renamed Type O Negative. According to the sleeve notes of the “Top Shelf Edition” of their second album, the first Type O Negative album, Slow Deep and Hard was composed largely from material originally written for Carnivore.
