Rating: 6 Seems like Vasil de Shumen is a die-hard K.D fanboy. Everytime I clicked K.M's albums I saw his list (Top 200 Metal Masterpieces of All Time).

Not accidental - King Diamond is extremely talented metal musician. All his albums from the 80's (including Mercyful Fate)are really great ...

Don't feed the Troll



Problem is that he isn't a troll, he is dead serious.

No doubt King Diamond's style is unique, such as The Candle, Charon & Helloween are good but the rest of the tracks are just average, especially lurking in the dark is bad that really brought down my rating to this album.

ONe thing everyone learned long ago when Godbuster started posting is that one should never ever listen to anything Godbuster says.

Ffs calling Stioll Life by Opeth post death or Damnation by OPeth post death rock? Making up stuff as he goes along...

There's a post where he calls Accept a "Classic Teutonic Thrash band". Probably one of my favourites. Someone should do a Best Of.
