It's possible the only reason this EP is so good is because they cramped all the good early songs and just improved them until there was basically no more room for improvement, but regardless, 10 all the way.

"satan has taken his... tooooooooooAAAAAAAAAAAAAlll" - holy shit right there in the middle he hits the highest note i've ever heard any metal vocalist sing.
Sing me a song, you're a singer
Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil.

This is imo the best EP ever.

I think this may be my favorite Mercyful Fate release. It's certainly my most listened to one

One of, if not the best metal ep of all time without a question. Queensryche's self titled ep comes to mind as well, but that's a different realm of metal anyways. All killer, no filler, short but sweet and oh so evil. Hail the King!

A corpse without a Soul was Literally the first metal song I downloaded like ever! a classic.

Just met Michael Denner at his record store in Copenhagen and got him to sign a copy of this. Cool dude.

Mercyful Fate is/was such a good band. I got into King Diamond first, through my father of all people, he had Abigail on CD, but I really got more into this band.
