2.5 averageRobbit | May 3rd 16

With 1996's INTO THE UNKNOWN, there was a strong sense that the Mercyful Fate formula was beginning to run thin.
Musically, it was much of the same craftily arranged neo-classically laced Black Metal, but of a somewhat lesser quality
grade. Some fans may not have even sensed a real problem here, but it's plainly obvious to me they were capable of much
better work than this.

Much of the problem I have with this album revolve around King Diamond’s contributions lyrically and vocally. There is a
very overt sense that he wasn’t taking himself too seriously in general.

5.0 classicHammerheart14 | January 29th 13

I don't get all the hate! People need to STOP comparing their 90's material to the 80's material!! They moved on, not every album is gonna sound like Don't Break The Oath! This album has some classics, like Under The Spell, The Uninvited Guest, Into The Unknown, Kutulu (the Mad Arab), and Holy Water. Listen to it with an open mind and you WILL love it, trust me!

It is a good album. Mercyful Fate kept great instrumental.
