Milwaukee, WI goth metal act 616 have uploaded a cover of the Type O Negative song “Everything Dies,” which you can check out below. The project was founded by frontman Matthew A Lidwin in 2018, and draws inspiration from bands like Type O Negative, HIM, and The 69 Eyes.
Currently signed to Cleopatra Records (with additional new music and videos currently in the works), 616 have been helped by collaborations with former pro-skateboarder and stunt performer Bam Margera (‘Jackass’), drummer Mika “Gas Lipstick” Karppinen of HIM and Flat Earth, and multi-platinum producer John Fryer (NIN, Stabbing Westward).
Lidwin comments on the fresh tune, “I chose to do ‘Everything Dies’ by Type O Negative because it’s my best friend and bassist Cam Dewald’s favorite band and it his most favorite song and he told me why, when he was down and out and thinking life couldn’t get any worse, he listened to that song constantly and it got him through the day. So I told am we’re doing it. He is so happy! Also who doesn’t like Type O Negative!”
Margera adds his praise for the band, “I’ve known Matthew Lidwin for over a decade now as he would fly to Pennsylvania from Milwaukee to live at my Aunt Boof’s house, watching him progress as a musician and meeting better producers. I would tell him how much better the songs were sounding. When EDEN became 616 and I heard the songs, especially “Cinderella Valentine” and “Goddamn Liar,” I said, “wow Lidwin you really did it!” The quality is perfect the riffs are phenomenal and the distortion is perfect to me! I’ll say, you have yourself a perfect gothic love metal hit – congratulations!”
