i want a new mercyful fate or king diamond album
who did the vox?
I hear you. I mean bands such as those mentioned above and labels like Metal Blade are revisiting the MF sound with great success. If they reunite, Metal Blade will sign them in a split second.
Digging: The Sabbathian - Ritual Rites
So much M/
Digging: Pharmakon - Abandon
The album adaptation was solely instrumental, at least that's what the blabbermouth piece suggests.
would be some big shoes to fill trying to sing Melissa!
A few years ago, I would agree with you, but there are at least two - to my best of knowledge - singers who imitate King Diamond's lows perfectly. Check the first two In Solitude albums and the recently released Noctum album (there's a stream for the latter).
Ihsahn can mimic King's falsetto pretty well
Digging: Darkspace - Dark Space III I
Fuckin brilliant band
Digging: Kangding Ray - Solens Arc
Thanks Voivod, just made my day!
Shermann and Denner are my favorite guitar duo of all time. Such a great band, and I only got two more albums left to review until I finish reviewing Mercyful Fate's entire discog.
Digging: Moonsorrow - V: Havitetty
Digging: JJ Cale - Okie
Nice, but a 30th Anniversary gig with King and the original line-up would be better.
Digging: Cannibal Corpse - A Skeletal Domain
^This. I don't think MF fans can accept another vocalist instead of King Diamond. His theatrics and overall influence on MF is extremely important.
Digging: John Coltrane - Ballads
MERCYFUL FATE Guitarists Back Together For 30th Anniversary...
