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.

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?

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.

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.

one year passes...

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.

A theory: If Conspiracy had a different album cover it would be regarded as highly as Them (or higher). Some days I think it's King's masterpiece.

But what the hell were they thinking with that sleeve?

Paul Ponzi, Thursday, 31 October 2019 22:08 (one month ago) link

wtf the sleeve is awesome

brimstead, Thursday, 31 October 2019 22:51 (one month ago) link

It looks like a substitute for a better cover that was banned or something. Like a last minute decision of "fuck it, just put his face on the cover, that'll do"

Paul Ponzi, Thursday, 31 October 2019 23:36 (one month ago) link

He's playing "The Lake" on this current tour. Also two new songs.

The setlist seems tailor made for me. Not spoiling anything else.

I paid for the VIP because meeting the King, even for 3 seconds, is a bucket list item.

Jordan Pickford LOLverdrive (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 6 November 2019 03:26 (one month ago) link

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.

that's so awesome you met him!

was it... a dangerous meeting?

Captain ACAB (Neil S), Wednesday, 6 November 2019 14:45 (one month ago) link

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

Have any of you tried his limited edition black lager?

Jordan Pickford LOLverdrive (Neanderthal), Thursday, 7 November 2019 02:42 (one month ago) link

The yeast used to brew it comes from my longtime favorite Danish brewing company, Carlsberg

This face i am making is pretty much how I felt all night.
