    I don't get it. Maybe because I'm in my 40s now, but I just can't get into King Diamond/Mercyful Fate anymore. I was such a HUGE fan back in the late 80s/early 90s. "Them", "No Presents for Christmas", "Conspiracy", and "The Eye". Especially "Them", my favorite album. I try listening to it now and there's no interest for it. How'd that happen??!! Other favs of mine from that time (Slayer, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, Obituary, Pantera, Nuclear Assault, Danzig, Iron name a few) I still love to listen to. One of my best friends at that time and myself were the only 2 "metal heads" that really loved King Diamond. Everyone else was just "he's alright". Now I am the same way. I don't get it!!???

    Great video - but I just want to say that David Harbour's bass playing on HoG is the best of ANY KD album.

    I can't write horror.. Scratch that, I really can't write fiction because I can't bear to do horrible things to my main characters. It takes strength.

    Say, what is your standing on Savatage? That's one very original sounding, super talented and criminally overlooked band that have a story worth telling.. You got the right skill but any will for those guys? Criss Oliva (rest in power🤞🏻) was sensational (Mustaine REALLY wanted him for Megadeth at one time - some trivia for y'all lol) .. And his brother Jon was a mystically menacing metal vocalist.. Awesome.

  • Deuce Brikkinsson
    Deuce Brikkinsson 2 months ago +1

    Oh Damn yes! Amazing talent and always, always had superhero musicians playing alongside.. Nowadays (the loyal, 'been there from the beginning' guitar maestro) Andy LaRocque.. Mike Wead too another underrated axeman.. Pontus on bass! Solid! And you'd think it was the likes of Mikkey Dee back on the kit with Matt Thompson.. Dude is MACHINE TIGHT locked in.. Such musical excellence.. HAIL! Rocking on KD forevermore. 🤙🏻🤘🏻

      I like his voice a lot. Not the first time I heard it. But I was quickly sold on it. But if you hate his voice and still do after listening to "Them" and Abigail. Then there probably is no hope for you.

      Thankfully there is a lot of music in the world. Just listen to that instead. I don't like Korn for an example. It's probably great but I don't like it and that's okay.

  • ravenfn

    I love your Rageaholic rages! But I was in metal right from the start and you came in quite a few years later. We just have a little different views of some of these events and things. Diamond's songs never quite met up with the original Merciful Fate stuff. And ESPECIALLY the guitar solo work on those MF tracks. Diamond's band and old school metal was just so passe and dying a painful death after and maybe even before Abigail. I loved that album but none of my bandmates did. Granted, they were guitarists and missed those awesome harmony guitar solos from MF that would absolutely embarrass any other band at the time, or since. Thanks for doing what you do. Oh yeah... that drummer left because nobody was listening to this kind of metal anymore. The landscape had changed. Anthrax, MOD, SOD... many many more. That's just life.

    Wow! This is a truly superb review over KD's career. I have to say that I agree very much with his personal high and low points. Well done for mentioning crap Pro tool productions... It needed to be said. Again, hats of to a superb, intelligent and well researched career review. 👍
