The album, originally titled None More Negative (title later used by a multi-record compilation released in 2011), has a rawness that was prominent in Peter Steele's previous band, Carnivore, but it incorporates elements that became standard for Type O Negative, merging styles including doom metal, gothic metal, new wave, and industrial music. Slow, Deep and Hard is a semi-autobiographical album with heavy amounts of black humor, based on a relationship in which Peter Steele was involved in. The lyrics on this album are mainly about broken romance and a cheating lover, along with anger, hatred, depression, agony, and killing, and can be considered a concept album. In keeping with the band's notable humor, the cover of Slow, Deep and Hard is a blurry picture of a penis penetrating a vagina. Despite the cover being embarrassing to many people, it is Roadrunner's 8th greatest album cover according to RoadrunnerRecords.com.
