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: Sacri Monti - Sacri Monti
So much M/
Digging: Firewater - Get Off the Cross, We Need the Wood for the Fire
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
Fuckin brilliant band
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: The Prodigy - The Fat of the Land
Nice, but a 30th Anniversary gig with King and the original line-up would be better.
Digging: Wishbone Ash - Argus
^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: Hammer King - Kingdom Of The Hammer King
MERCYFUL FATE Guitarists Back Together For 30th Anniversary...
