Title: The "Big thing" King is talking about...(part 35642)
Post by: Natas on January 07, 2009, 11:07:28 am
Just recently, here in the Coven, King linked the "big thing" (go ahead lightning!), which was neither kids or MF-reunion, with something that could affect the future of MF. In my opinion, it looks more and more likely that a KD song or Metallica`s MF-medley will end up on a guitar hero version. What else could it be? Soundtracks? I know there`s coming a heavy ,etal action game with voices from many great artists (I think King is one of them), could it be something connected to that? I`m really happy nowadays with the dvds, so even MORE good stuff might just be too much :P

Absolutely. My money is though still on it being the Metallica-medley being on it, not MF themselves.

yeah I am with you on that it will be Metallica doing the song with King on vocals in the game.

I don't know. MF is a huge influence for Metallica. It's very likley that MF could show up on the game

i've always think that this would be a bad idea because then everyone will know abou mercyful fate and king and they will be like: "yeah i've listened to MF/KD all my life" but they just have listened it beacaus Guitar Hero... I think its cooler to really know about MF/KD and really love it like all of us do... we know that all of us are really fans but if that happened then there would be a lot of fake fans or something like that

I have said this before but I think it would be a great idea because King would get more money rolling in so some of that would get put back into the band. That would make for bigger better tours etc... Plus younger fans need to start somewhere so if they discover king diamond through guitar hero who cares.

yeah but at the same time its unfair towards King its almost like saying I don't want you to progress and you should just stay underground even if it makes you lose money. When I go to Maiden show there are like 3 generations of fans there in packed sold out stadiums rocking out its fucking great!

We were all new jacks at one point in time  :cool:  But maybe at the same time you can say if you liked that song you will love this one... and then a new king diamond fan is born  :D  What if King did so well from the game that later on down the road he was able to make a movie? That would be killer :king:

If one out of ten "stupid guys" who liked what they heard got hooked and bought shit loads of MF/KD, that would make a huge impact. For example; I`m a dedicated manchester United supporter, and have been so for more than 20 years, before the big success hit. I see loads of really young people going around in "our" jersey and talking about how much they "love" United. I don`t like it, but at the same time I know that everybody starts at some point and even those who won`t stay true at least spat (is that right? Spit, spit?) some money into the club, and that`s good when it all comes down to it. More money/audiences for KD/MF can`t be bad for them, even if us oldies might get offended  :P

yeah who cares if you've known King's music for 20 years or 20 minutes!
It doesn't affect my listening pleasure. Why should it affect anybody else's?

I won't start playing Guitar Hero 'tho! That's a whole different matter!

I think ANY publicity for King is a good thing...but within reason. Iron Maiden made it without being on Guitar Hero, although I hear they're wanting to make their own version (hack) of the game exclusive to Iron Maiden, which would be AWESOME if King would do...

While I think it's great that Metallica has always spoken well of King and honored him with the medley (which I still maintain is a horrible cover) and has had him on stage with them, etc. I think that King is better than them in many respects even though they have more mass-appeal with the mall crowd. I don't want King to stay "underground" and broke...but I think it would be a sad mistake to sell out and write something untrue to the ideals on which his career has been founded and upon which many of us have subscribed to and spent our money on shows, tapes, CD's and soon DVD's. King is an icon BECAUSE he has refused to be like everyone else and follow the latest trend-whores like Metallica continues to do.

King`s unique style will not appeal to, say, the masses as Metallica and Maiden do. But a lot of people who never knew about KD/MF and who would like his style of singing would be great for both bands. I have a lot of friends who like those bands, and had never listened to either KD or MF, but loved it when I played it to them. That effect on a broather scale would be great.

Been watching this board for a while, but I figured I better register so as not to be labled a Guitar Hero noob, should that actually be the big news.

As more of an intro... I was a HUGE MF fan as a teenager (I'm 35 now), and only recently started listening to solo KD from the 90s and 2000s.(Though I thought when it came out that MFs In The Shadows was possibly the best album I had ever heard.)
IMHO anything that introduces new kids to this music is a good thing. Even if it is Guitar Hero.

Personally, I'd like to see a comic book series. Like "King Diamond Presents... THEM" Actually, the series could start with Fatal Portrait and work its way through to GMYSP and beyond.

nothing really wrong with this!im man enough to admit i first heard iron maidens"number of the beast"on tony hawk proskater  4? :gah: so theres nothing really wrong if MF goes on guitar hero,and ever since i heard IM on tonk hawk,my uncle was right there and hes all like holy shit thats maiden,and i used to only play that song when i played that game,than my uncle showed me his collection put on NOTB and piece of mind,powerslave and i was hooked ever since!have ALL of the albums,live dvds,live cds,alot of shirts,seen them live 3 times and even have a tattoo of KILLERS eddie on my arm,so im a shining example,videos games are an excellent way for kids to find amazing music! :cool: not to metion IM is my fav band ever! with KD being my other fav band ever! and MF and priest right behind them \m/

Once they got on guitar hero they got really popular. :)  IMHO If guitar hero stays in the limelight and King gets on the Metallica version I think it will springboard his career to the next level.

although its good for King, and will surely help his career (Hell, Nile and Behemoth debuted in the Billboard 200 just because they were on Ozzfest at 10 in the morning - and this was weeks before the tour started), I agree. I don't play video games, and I especially don't give a shit about guitar hero, rock band, etc.. Also, if it leads to a spot opening for Metallica I'd be more than disappointed. I don't want to have to pay a 100 dollars to see King from a hundred yards away, I prefer 30 dollars for general admission.

I wish the big news was that King was gonna throw a big party in the Dallas area, cause I would so be there.

Congrats to King for the deserving nod and for the chance to convert some new rookie Diamond Bangers.

Love it or hate it, Guitar Hero is huge and this will not go unnoticed. Lesser bands than MF have had major sales boosts because of this stupid game.

Perhaps a good time to shop for a new label before you sign those MF contracts, King?! Then again, maybe this was the holdout all along. MF on the map = better deal = more money = new album and tour?

And to people who would rather King stayed "underground" and played to 30 tooth-less people in a smelly dive bar in some godforsaken little hell hole one-donkey-town: Fucking idiots. Sometimes you kids scare me.

i sure as shit never insinuated that. I don't consider venues that hold 500-1000 people at capacity to be shit holes. Nor are Dallas, NYC, LA, Miami, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, etc etc exactly little out of the way hick towns.  and honestly, I doubt that King or Mercyful Fate will ever be playing bigger venues than that. And I'm glad. I hate arena shows. they just aren't nearly as fun. not even close. again, I'm not concerned about them playing 10,000 seat arenas. I just don't see it happening unless you account for festivals, or if they open for metallica or some other huge band (which i hope to christ doesn't happen - at least not for a full tour.)

I never said I hated it. Good for him if it pays a bit. It's just that for me, it's nothing exciting, as I don't care for videogames in general.

If it can bring exposure and cd sales, that's great too. But there's a big difference between a relatively unknown band like Dragonforce ending up on a general version of the game and the MF medley that all Metallica fans have already heard on the Metallica version of the game.

I think the last time King played to only 30 people was roughly the second day he sang for Black Roses...get a grip. King is respected for not catering to the mall rats and his music has been enjoyed by millions of fans worldwide.

I wouldn't want to see King in an arena show either. I've been to two: Iron Maiden in 89, and Queensryche/Suicidal Tendencies in 91. Both shows, while great to see the bands, sucked because of shithead security and being in the nosebleeds. Seriously, I enjoyed the live videos better than the actual show.

Post by: Grace on January 25, 2009, 10:24:24 am
I see that exaggerating to make a point is lost on most as well. Big surprise.

This discussion is where the Guitar Hero nod could take King as far as revenues, sales and contract negotiations go. Not what seat you prefer to sit in at a certain show. Arena shows can be amazing, but as an opener I think King's theatrics would be lost as he couldn't bring on a full stage production. Plus, it is MF that we're talking about here since they are the band appearing in the game.

If we look at this from the band's perspective, for the sake of common sense, the difference could be between playing the half empty Downtown Club in Farmingdale (NY), or playing a packed Nokia Theater in the City. A 2,000 ticket difference + the opportunity to sell tons of merch.

I am sure you can find a good spot in both (shirt and shoes required at Nokia, though.)

The world must be coming to an end hahah because I agree with your post :gah: I am sure you read what I wrote in this thread so our opinion on this subject is basically the same. King at the Nokia would be amazing the sound in that place is fucking killer, I have seen a few shows there and they were all fantastic.

Understood. It's not forever one. I gotta be honest when i first heard this I didn't think "Yes! Now king will get some recognition and his profits will go up". I thought my self, "Yes! Now i can play Mercyful Fate on Guitar Hero! Weeeeee!"

The game is super fun to me no matter how many dill holes play it and over hype it. Just like I will always like Mercyful Fate and King Diamond even if a shit tone of a little "follow the crowd" sheep start listening to it.

Relax people! :) I can't see how King would be the next big thing because of a song on a freaking video game? Great for him and the rest of Fate, hope it leads to a better contract and bigger productions etc, but I can't see this really happening. But then I could be misjudging how huge this game is if just having one song in it changes the career of a band, and old one at that. In a way I hope so because I certainly wish KD and MF all success they can have. Also, the kind of people that act like they´re true fans etc after playing Evil on Guitar Hero probably won't be fans for long because something else will be around the corner next week. However it might evolve to something bigger in a few cases, like the guy that discovered Maiden through the Tony Hawk game explained in this thread - sometimes you learn that certain bands exists in funny ways, and now he's a huge fan. I bought a KD/MF cd by chance out of curiosity after only hearing and reading about them, not even actually hearing their music. Who's to say which way is better than another?

Imight actually buy the damn game for my son. He's 10 and I've gotten him to acknowledge that the idea of story telling on an album is cool, MF and KD is just too old school for him. (he even throws up devil horns and tells his mom "Hail Satan"  :king: ) Putting MF in a video game will definately get his attention and it will have brought a member of the next generation into the coven.

I think you missed my point as well...what I'm saying is that while I think it would be awesome for King to make more in sales, etc., there is a point where a band can get TOO big...like Metallica for instance. They got so big that they stopped being able to write good music because some dickhead like Bob Rock came along and thought they should target a wider audience.

Sounds great for business, but this isn't JUST business...this is music and it affects more than just a bottom line.

Sounds great for business, but this isn't JUST business...this is music and it affects more than just a bottom line.

Not really just look at Iron Maiden. Nobody forced Metallica to get Bob Rock they wanted him as a producer. Plus I dont think King would ever get someone like Bob Rock.

My very first concert was Iron Maiden...I had a great time, but I wore out the Live After Death VHS playing it over and over and still prefer clubs or theater shows to arena shows. In general, security isn't up everyone's ass at club and theater shows like they are at arenas...there are exceptions like the hated Mokena Pearl Room but at least you can get up close and personal for G.A. shows.

Iron Maiden's an exception because they've always done things their way and have always done everything they can for the fans.

It doesn't surprise me that Metallica wanted Bob Cock...don't feel bad, though. I was just as pissed when Alice Cooper worked with Desmond Child. Great for his "career", horrible for the music and his old-school fans.

Don't take this the wrong way or anything...but I wasn't saying he was broke. If you would have read all the posts you would have known that I was addressing the notion that anyone who thinks this is lame wants King to stay underground at the cost of never making any money.

Hmm... I'm gonna have to be a little negative here. I was hoping for a relase of the KD dvdtoday, now it's postponed to who knows when? March? April? I'm not blaming anybody or any of that kind, I understand the situation totally, especially since King and Livia are doing all the work themselves (I could never imagine that - I thought they were at least getting some assistance from somebody outside of the band!) but was a little disappointed to hear of the delay anyway since I've been looking forward to this release for so long. That's the downside to posting release dates - sometimes shit happens and stuff get delayed leaving the fans waiting.

Most important of course is KD recovery, but great to see he spends his down time beaing creative! :king:

Please don't make us puke...you're right, though...the tickets would be far too expensive for most of us. I know that I personally would only come to see King and would leave before Metallica even got on the stage, so it would almost be money wasted since they'd surely be getting the lion's share of ticket sales.

King IS definitely better than them...

I would love to see King tour with Metallica. Imagine how cool King's stage set up would be, even though they would only get to use like half the stage as M's gear would be back lined. It would still be a lot of room for a lot of props and stuff. I imagine an Alice Cooper kind of vibe! (Alice puts on what may be the coolest show I've ever seen!)

I too would leave before Metallica hit the stage. I actually left at the beginning of their set when they toured with Suicidal Tendencies and Danzig.

Have you been to a KD Show before? He don't have the gear to fill out such a big stage, try to watch the clips from when he plays festival, there's no acting there, only playing - and im not saying i don't like that i fuckin love it, but i like the sceneplay better.

And even if he could, the most cool thing about KD live is the tense mood. You don't get the same feeling with 20 - 70.000 other people at a big open air show that you do at a 1 - 4000 show in a small place, it get's in the way intesetivity. I love King at the small stages he has and still plays

King's stage show, while cool, is really not an expensive production.  There are a lot of Styrofoam props, and a PVC fence painted black.  That's all you need.  His presence is the real show. :cool:

lol i hear what your saying. I'm only fuckin with ya. I would still love to see 'Tallica again. I am just not up for paying 110 bucks for a decent seat on a new album tour with lots of new music and a shitty opener. I'm up for seeing "Tallica with someone like king diamond and on an off tour were they will play lots of older stuff.

Support acts are for the purpose of getting more people to the show.  Metallica doesn't even need a support act.  Just like Maiden with Lauren Harris' awful band (she should have just come out and pole danced for a half hour), it's strictly to help said band out at that point.  They need to do shows like Dream Theater did in their "Evening With" shows.  3-4 hours with an intermission, and know support act.

Unfortunately, King has to tour with support acts.  Plus I don't think his voice, or back for that matter, could take 3-4 hours a night. :(

hehe...I loved Nile but I agree they were better when I saw them at the March Metal Meltdown a couple of years before the KD tour. Black Dahlia Murder and Behemoth just weren't my bag...I was really looking forward to the Leaves Eyes/Kreator matchup, though. It was going to be one of the few KD shows where King was with more than just one good support act.

My dream tour?

Candlemass/Celtic Frost/King Diamond...now THAT would be a show I wouldn't miss no matter the cost...but alas, Messiah is no longer with Candlemass and Tom Warrior isn't doing CF...but I would gladly substitute his new band, Triptykon...

frankly if that was the news that King was supporting Metallica I'd be over the moon, I think a support slot of a big-brand name like Metallica would be the only chance that I'd ever get to see King Diamond in the UK.  So I'm definitely all for it.  Besides even though Metallica are clearly past their prime they've created some timeless music that stands up well compared to any music being created today.

No, unfortunately I would have had to travel to see him live in the past which used to be an issue, but I figure if he was to open for a huge band like Metallica his label would probably throw money at him for a bigger production. I absolutely agree that a large venue isn't as cool as a smaller one, but that is exactly why a big theatrical production becomes necessary. The Lights and the big screens and the room for props and crap would be there already, so why not take advantage of it all?

I have had the luck to see King Diamond, and im not of the opinion that there's any lights he needs at all, his light show is truly kickass!

But i can really see your point, but many people travel to see bands, i took a 50$ each way trip to copenhagen both when i saw Down and Ozzy Osbourne as well as Slayer :) you simply have to do that sometimes, and i think Metallica only plays maybe one or 2 shows in each country, which might not even be at different towns. Where King plays up to 5 shows at one country at different venues, Metallica is a busy band getting more around and at big arenas, so i wouldn't like it the other way
