MELISSA AUF DER MAUR: Video Footage Of PETER STEELE Tribute From Milan - Sep. 11, 2010

Fan-filmed video footage of former HOLE bassist Melissa Auf Der Maurpaying tribute to late TYPE O NEGATIVE frontman Peter Steele by performing part of TYPE 0 NEGATIVE's "Black No. 1" followed by a TYPE O-styled cover version of BLACK SABBATH's "Paranoid" on August 26, 2010 at club Magnolia in Milan, Italy can be viewed below.

Photos of the show (by reporter Arianna Ascione) are available onMusica Metal.

Melissa Auf der Maur (MAdM) unveiled the first chapter of her multimedia solo project OUT OF OUR MINDS (OOOM) with a new album, which was released in March. Dynamic, multilayered and independently produced, OOOM is described in a press release as "a 21st-century concept project that includes a solo album, short film, comic book, live performances, gallery presentations and several viral components." A "choose your own adventure" — one can collect and consume all the parts, or each part can exist on its own.

Melissa Auf der Maur said of the project, "OOOM began as a song. It was mid-first-decade of the 21st Century and technology had just begun to dismantle the music business towers. It was the best thing that could've ever happened to me. The landscape changed and I began to morph my roots in visual arts with the music. The many portals of OOOMinvite listeners and viewers to discover on their own, at their own pace and in their own space. If you're listening, Come in…"

The OOOM album consists of 12 powerful tracks produced and mixed by top-flight creative collaborators including Jordon Zadorozny (SAM ROBERTS), Chris Goss (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, UNKLE), Alan Molder (DEPECHE MODE, SMASHING PUMPKINS), and Mike Fraser(FRANZ FERDINAND, AC/DC). The album features a notable special duet with legendary Goth rocker Glenn Danzig on "Father's Grave". Other standout tracks are "Meet Me On The Dark Side" and "22 Below", which highlights MAdM's ability to fuse her bass rifts with captivating melodies.

An essential component of OOOM is the 28-minute, HD film starring and conceived by MAdM under the direction of Tony Stone. The film was first shown at the Sundance Film Festival last year, as well as at World Con's 67th Annual Sci-Fi Convention, garnering widespread critical praise. In October, the OOOM film was added as an installation piece and contemporary interpretation to an international showcase of pre-Raphaelite painter J.W. Waterhouse's work.
