October Rust is the fourth album by Type O Negative. It was released in 1996. This is the first album with Johnny Kelly credited as the band's drummer. October Rust has more ballads and less of the doom metal sound of previous or subsequent albums. It also features a much heavier cover of Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl."
It is the first of the band's albums with a "joke intro"; in this case, the intro, "Bad Ground", is 38 seconds of low-level buzzing, meant to sound as if the listener's speakers are incorrectly plugged in. The second and fifteenth tracks are humorous untitled intros and outros to the album, respectively, with the band downplaying the recording of the album. Another production technique employed on the album is the use of very abrupt endings and segues to a few of the songs, like "Green Man", "Red Water" and "Haunted".
All songs by Peter Steele, except where noted.

- Jenkins, Mark (October 25, 1996). TYPE O: GETTING LESS NEGATIVE. Retrieved on October 2, 2015. “The new York quartet's sound [on their new album October Rust] now owes as much to the lush goth-rock of the Sister of Mercy as the harsh grind of bands like Carcass.”
