As the frontman for Type O Negative, Steele was known for his Vampire/vampiric effect, towering stature, rich bass-baritone vocals, and a dark, often Self-deprecation/self-deprecating sense of humor. "His lyrics were often intensely personal, dealing with subjects including love, loss, and addiction." Steele credited Black Sabbath and The Beatles as his key musical inspirations.
