I don't really see any resemblance between the two songs to be perfectly honest. Other than the genre of music "Heavy Metal"

I don't remember the name myself.
I do remember that it was very strong and not that easy to hold. It felt a little weird standing there in full makeup when the dog's owner told me that the dog didn't like people wearing masks like the kind kids wear at Halloween.
"So maybe you should take a walk with him, and see if he gets used to your makeup".
So, me and "Hugo" took a little walk without incident among the rattlesnakes.
I guess he didn't didn't dislike my makeup, because I'm still here.
The place where we shot Witches' Dance was several miles off the nearest small road into the desert plains on the other side of the mountains from Los Angeles. We arrived after dark with a small motor home, light, crew, generator. I remember the producer told us not to walk outside of the lit area, because this place was literally crawling with rattlesnakes. Stupid as we are, we of course had to walk close to the edge of the lit area and let me tell you, the rattlers were going. It was a bit uncomfortable, and immediately your mind was thinking of everything that could go wrong. What would happen if the generator would go out? But that's a whole different story.
Sorry, I got carried away here, I just wanted to say I don't remember the name of the dog. :D

out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by rattlesnakes, trying to maintain control of a rottweiler that probably doesn't care much for your looks....
I'll bet that was one video shoot that everyone was in a hurry to wrap up.  :)

That was the video that got me into Mercyful and ultimately, King Diamond.

I always loved how in one shot it looked like King was no joke trying to stop the dog from killing the camera guy. While also lip syncing to the song. HAHA

It is a great video, and I think the atmosphere was very dead on for MF

Hey King..What a story for us mere mortals to enjoy..
I really loved the Headbangers Ball podcast and played it many times
The Puppet Master story I have watched also many times..
The reverb/ambience in that room is so dark yet warm and motivating HAIL  :cool:
