two years pass...

listening to The Brats...totally fun and cheesy and loveable, like this perfect mix of biker metal, punk, and sorta new wave melodies

wow this is crazy! the fathers of extreme metal sound super power pop on "b-brains"!

it's pretty good actually, they got some tunes! it's just super cute overall

I just feel somehow like it might disfigure Mercyful Fate a little bit for me somehow but that's probably ridic.

hmm yeah i guess if you were super invested in the whole evil image thing, but i don't believe king diamond is in this just two other dudes (not a real expert on MF except for don't break the oath)

my dream is to own a fly casino (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 23 July 2010 17:08 (nine years ago) link

Not that invested in the woooooh evil thing but yeah no King D.

classic. I finally got Spider's Lullabye, already had the classics like Abigail and Them. this is AWESOME.

Mercyful Fate were my fav though. wish they'd come off of hiatus, it's only been a 11 year one :(

King Diamond is in the Brats for sure! think I'll listen to Fatal Portrait this morning

drawl the whine (underrated aerosmith albums I have loved), Tuesday, 12 October 2010 13:05 (nine years ago) link

one of the few classic era KD ones I haven't garnered yet -- Conspiracy being the other, but I ordered it a few days ago! want to dig up my copy of Abigail, what a classic.

THE SOMEWHAT COMPETENT RANDY (San Te), Tuesday, 12 October 2010 13:09 (nine years ago) link

I consider Fatal Portrait among his best works! relentless riffage, awesome effects...audibly from the same fit of inspiration as Don't Break the Oath imo

drawl the whine (underrated aerosmith albums I have loved), Tuesday, 12 October 2010 13:22 (nine years ago) link

drawl the whine (underrated aerosmith albums I have loved), Tuesday, 12 October 2010 13:22 (nine years ago) link

\m/! Awesome! Yea truthfully Mercyful Fate was my favorite of the two acts, especially Don't Break the Oath/Melissa, but I mean it's really like the difference between an A and an A minus. I had a ticket to see MF once in 1999 but A. it was out of state and I never found a way to get a ride as I didn't have a car, and B. the show got cancelled anyway :(.

I always love how King had his two acts very clearly sonically delineated for the most part -- like you can go to KD's solo work if you want more ear-catching heavy metal (still rife with neat guitar work)...or Mercyful Fate if you want more sprawling rock 'n rolly metal with rifftastic galore and demonically MAD melodies.

When asked to choose between, I choose "both".

THE SOMEWHAT COMPETENT RANDY (San Te), Tuesday, 12 October 2010 13:32 (nine years ago) link

Conspiracy is massively underrated. First two songs alone are some of the King's best work, and the story (which is a continuation of the story on Them) gets somehow even more twisted and evil.

If Assholes Could Fly This Place Would Be An Airport, Tuesday, 12 October 2010 15:18 (nine years ago) link

I am cool with these guys even though they don't know how to spell "Abigail" (sic).

The Ten Things I Hate About Commandments (Abbbottt), Wednesday, 13 October 2010 00:50 (nine years ago) link

Or I guess "this guy."

The Ten Things I Hate About Commandments (Abbbottt), Wednesday, 13 October 2010 00:53 (nine years ago) link

I really think Mercyful Fate's "Into the Unknown" is overlooked. I mean their best material was behind them by this point, but it still rocks. Maybe just a solid three stars, but hey I'll take it!

melody-hating aggr0 nerd (San Te), Thursday, 14 October 2010 15:48 (nine years ago) link

finally got Conspiracy in the mail, and Fatal Portrait is en route. really like the vibe of Conspiracy, it's similar to Them obviously musically (being that it's a continuation), but there are some nice flourishes like the acoustic intros.

AMG's review of this is dumb.

think I'm going to chase this with an album I haven't listened to in ages, Mercyful Fate's Melissa. A classic if there ever was one.

melody-hating aggr0 nerd (San Te), Saturday, 16 October 2010 14:17 (nine years ago) link

Love the tunes. Cannot get w/ the level of falsetto. I have tried.

lol @ dog w/ sunglasses (Pillbox), Saturday, 16 October 2010 14:21 (nine years ago) link

it's an acquired taste for sure, I wasn't into him at first. I mean when it comes down to it there's just no other vocalist remotely like him in metal. his falsetto isn't quite yer Michael Kiske warble but also isn't your Rob Halford shrieketto either. It's really screechy and pinched, with camp value to boot.

to me that falsetto makes "Evil" hit another level (whereas Metallica's cover fell short because Hetfield couldn't do it). "Under the sign of the MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON."

want a Don't Break the Oath tattoo on bicep but Catholic superstition keeps breathin in my ear that overtly Satanic tattoo will seal some kind of horrible deal

DO IT

i seen a man *plop* (San Te), Sunday, 27 February 2011 22:57 (eight years ago) link

it's like every time I listen to MF, it's like this is the only band that can get me into a "fuck...nobody even close to on their level these days, fuckin' youngsters" kinda vibe. for the most part I reject that vibe utterly but then I consider that once a million years ago some dudes from Denmark got all "yeah, we want our album to sound like this" and I think, fuckin', the balls on these guys. OTOH don't want to get possessed by Satan/sacrifice life & family to him so that's the offset

five gone cats from Boston (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Sunday, 27 February 2011 23:03 (eight years ago) link

lol and otm.

I wish King would reform MF soon. I like his solo stuff fine and the later era MF stuff wasn't as solid but in their prime you couldn't fuck with Fate. they were probably the first heavy metal band of their ilk that I fell in love with, oddly after seeing them on Beavis and Butthead and just thinking they sounded evil and sinister.

i seen a man *plop* (San Te), Sunday, 27 February 2011 23:05 (eight years ago) link

I will rep for a lot of later Fate now - Time & In the Shadows are pretty great, the song "Angel of Light" is one of their best grooves. And Fatal Portrait for me stands alongside the best Fate stuff, too - great great record. The Puppet Master on the other hand I cannot get down w/.

five gone cats from Boston (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Sunday, 27 February 2011 23:13 (eight years ago) link

In the Shadows is almost as fab as the first two, I'll rate it right up there...I mostly wasn't into Dead Again or Into the Unknown, but I liked "9" a lot despite its sonic shift.

i seen a man *plop* (San Te), Sunday, 27 February 2011 23:14 (eight years ago) link

in fact "The Bell Witch" is one of my fav songs of theirs ever

i seen a man *plop* (San Te), Sunday, 27 February 2011 23:14 (eight years ago) link

so classic.. The 'Them' album still one of my all-time favs.. The playing on that record is so good. Mickey Dee's drumming-flawless.. I love that record!!!! And the story, are you kidding me?- BRILIANT!

the guitar tone during the break on "Satan's Fall" off Melissa, fuiud

what do it take to be a legend like noz is? (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 16 March 2011 19:06 (eight years ago) link

Abigail is really quite an awesome album. Can't say its sequel lives up to it, but rarely do they ever...

Threadkiller General (Viceroy), Thursday, 17 March 2011 03:25 (eight years ago) link

Any albums where he keeps the falsetto in check a bit more?

Algerian Goalkeeper, Friday, 18 March 2011 22:41 (eight years ago) link

I hope not!

We don't have a Mercyful Fate thread (at least none came up in the search) so I'm posting this here. Yes, it's kickstarter, but a comic book tribute to Mercyful Fate? Count my ass IN.

I'm listening to Them right now. \m/. I remember once going to sleep with this album and waking up abruptly in the middle of the bonus track "Phone Call" which iirc is just dialogue of King talking to his dead grandma saying "but...you're dead!" and I about peed myself waking up in the middle of that without having a moment to process what I was hearing or even knowing that it was my stereo.

Hammer Smashed Bagels, Thursday, 2 April 2015 02:42 (four years ago) link

Roadrunner box set looks amazing. But it's missing bonus tracks, is there another way to get these bonus tracks on an official release aside from the individual albums?

Robert Adam Gilmour, Thursday, 2 April 2015 11:07 (four years ago) link

Also a lot of the artwork is supposed to be missing. I don't know if the art is worth fussing over but I like old metal art so I might have to buy these individually.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Thursday, 2 April 2015 11:12 (four years ago) link

That comic book tribute to Mercyful Fate is nice!

My bro listened to this a lot when we were kids. "A mansion if you will" was a running gag on many a long car trip.

Right now if you go to Amazon digital music and search for King Diamond there is a song from last Friday titled "In Your Pants" with the single having a cover featuring a picture of pants.

And it's just some computer boice saying something about pants backwards for three minutes over an electronic beat.

What the actual fuck Amazon.

What was he like?? I would bet gracious and awesome. In fact, if he wasn't those things, don't tell me.

Was he wearing the makeup wen you met him?

Sorry, I'm a KD fanboy, obvs

Paul Ponzi, Wednesday, 6 November 2019 12:37 (one month ago) link

Super nice. It was a fast meet and greet, so I didn't get to have a long convo, but it was still worth it.

Lol yep, full makeup.

Jordan Pickford LOLverdrive (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 6 November 2019 13:41 (one month ago) link

amazing

Paul Ponzi, Wednesday, 6 November 2019 13:59 (one month ago) link

My god his voice too.

At 63 he shouldn't still be able to do this. After the heart attack/bypass he stopped smoking which helped a ton.

Also this was held at our local performing arts center so there were ushers in uniforms, managers in suits. It was held in the Walt Disney theatre. Down the hall, in the other theatre, The Marriage of Figaro was playing.

Really sad that patrons of both shows weren't in the lobby at the same time.

Jordan Pickford LOLverdrive (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 6 November 2019 14:08 (one month ago) link

that's so awesome you met him!

I saw him a few years ago and I was blown away by how great his voices sounded (even with his wife helping out behind the scenes), even after heart surgery. Dude is immortal.

Paul Ponzi, Wednesday, 6 November 2019 15:07 (one month ago) link

feels extremely weird to think of king diamond as an actual 63-year-old human and not an immortal shrieking banshee
