Title: Skype with King
Post by: King Diamond on March 15, 2010, 04:33:43 PM
Lately, there have been too many unfounded rumours and speculations regarding me and the band.
There has even been various accusations of all kinds of things, most of which totally unfounded. When these attacks come about, it is simply not enough to write another long blog to explain everything.
The latest attacks are way too big to cover in a blog and some people might think they got the answers they needed, others might sit with questions they felt were not answered.

In order to try and prevent these unfortunate episodes, I suggest the following:

I will set up a Skype account. Any of you can then add me as a contact and from time to time I will out of the blue call some of you up, so we can have a good talk (3 or 4 of us at a time) in which you can ask me anything and I can try to answer, and you can immediately follow up with further questions.
To put it simply, we will have some cool respectful conversations with each other.

Whenever some of you and I have talked, you will have good inside info which you can relay to the others in the coven or to whoever.
It might be a good thing to be updated on the various subjects on the coven, so that if I suddenly call any of you, you will know what kind of questions the others might have at the moment.

This will not be on any kind of firm schedule, but will more likely be a thing that happens out of the blue, whenever time, mood, etc. is right.
So don't hang around wasting your time for me to call, but rather, always make sure you are set to online status. I will always appear as offline, because this account will only be used for this.
I think this might have a great effect on both you and I. We can get closer, and we can learn from each other and address all kinds of issues.

Please let us know in this thread what you think, and we could possibly try out if it works this coming Sunday afternoon/evening Texas time.

Here is the skype contact information:

This is a very fucking good idea King! I salute you for the great initiative!

This could make a great fan/author relationship and we could get the news from the source it self, as we are on here alot we know what people want to ask cause we all talk together alot!

I at least thank you for making that decision and i have gotten Skype now for this :cool:

Okay, I am a grown up individual, but I honestly think I'd shit my pants of King himself called me up on skype.
The idea is of course outstanding, so I fully support it.

That is just great King!!! thanks a lot to give us all this oportunity to talk with you and have the real word from the man himself.
I want to tell you one sugestion:

As you might know all of us want to talk with you for some minutes. I know that from time to time we will be able to chat, but would you consider to arrange some kind of schedule? for example every first sunday from each month you will be on line from 2pm to  3pm texas time and you can chat for 10 minutes with some lucky of us.

Or would you consider to make a contest and then dedicate 30 minutes or an hour to some of us in determinated schedules set up by you and Ole of course according to your agendas.

I'm just given you ideas... It will be great for us, the fans, specially the ones such as me who live in places like Costa Rica.



Regards

I, too, fit into this camp. I would not be able to stop grinning and laughing. I'd jump up and down and go "dee duh duh duh dee dum dee doo duh."

It is a very forward thinking idea though, and I hope some good comes from it.

Wow! I think I would fall under the holy shit is this for real and I am talking to the man I have listened to sinc i was 14 (now39) and giggle like a school girl on the phone with some stud of the week. I'm not a big follow the celebrity guy around and get autographs type person, and there are very few people/celebrities that I would go out of my way to meet or talk to, cuz I feel they are just people like anyone, but for a chance to talk with Kind fucking Diamond is just too much! even though I'll probably never get "the call" cuz I work all the fucking time and won't ever be around when I can use skype. I will DL it tonight and hope for the chance to chat with The King though, but I fear all I would get out of my pie hole would be a lot of grunting and bevis and butthead impersonation or some such shit. Very cool of you though I must say. I hope it answers some questions for the ones who seek the answers. You are the man Sir Diamond! :king:

Interesting and novel idea to interact with the fans.  Having created the original thread, I suppose I do
feel some need to clarify the genesis of my statements.  First and foremost, I speak as a fan (and a
quiet one at that).  Second, my frustration is not borne out of not being able to get an update or
buy a t-shirt.  Those are just symptoms of what I is at the root of the problem: a lack of
recognition.  Whether the lack of promotion is self-inflicted, or the creation of a cash-strapped
label, or some combination thereof is open to debate.  I know what’s going on because I comb
through this forum with some regularity. The kid that first heard your name at a Metallica
concert, however, is going to be almost completely lost.   He won’t get any news that hasn’t been
posted on Blabbermouth a week ago.  He won’t get any media samples .  He won’t get any lyrics.
He won’t get any interviews.   He won’t be able to buy a CD or t-shirt from your site.  The list
goes on.    There’s just no reason for that.  

Hopefully, my comments have been taken somewhat constructively.  A better, more professional,
more user friendly, more aesthetically pleasing, more updated website where the newcomer can
explore your career and music can NEVER be a bad thing and is worth investing in.  More
effective merchandising can NEVER be a bad thing.  It will make you money while
simultaneously giving the fans something they actually want.  Updates, posted on the official site
and sent to every media outlet that will publish them can NEVER be a bad thing.  

In short, there’s absolutely no downside to investing in the perception that you are a vibrant,
active artist with a storied career.   While I like the Skype idea, it will only be reaching out and
preaching to the choir.   If you’re going to do it (and I encourage you to), get your management
to announce it to all of the media outlets.  It’s a novel idea, attractive to a lot of fans that might not
read the official forum, and it will result in a lot of free and positive exposure.

Interesting idea King.  It would be great to receive a call from you and be able to discuss whatever comes up. I'm sure lots of fans have millions of questions as we all have our intrigues. I will have to add Skype now so I can be at the ready for the call.  :cool:  It would certainly bring us closer to you, as we all are devoted to you and your music. Not many musicians would ever do that. So for that You have my humble thanks and praises. :king:

Hope to talk to you sometime soon!!


Many Hails from your Fan Forever,

Though I can´t help saying that there might still be something relevant in this... Personally I don´t care that much whether the whole world loves KD or not but I (as many others) feel there is some much potential in the band that could be used in a better way if a more active marketing strategy was used. But hell, what do I know about this??

King, I certainly commend your willingness to become a little more intimate and share info with your core fans. Definitely a cool idea and of course we would all be honored to have an opportunity to converse with you. I'm a little surprised that some of the aforementioned false allegations and rumors bother you as much as they do. I frequent the coven forum for updates and info and unless it was posted here I don't pay attention to anything I hear. The proposed skype communication would be a great way to convey what's really going on and create an unforgettable moment for some lucky fans. Thank you!

WHOA! That is awesome news! And this is such an easy way to keep the information fresh! Any time there's something big to talk about,King could come online for a few minutes and let us know what he's up to! And what better way to make a good artist-fan connection than through this?

Although we should remember to stay conscious and not freak out and disturb King with offline messages or disrupt him when he is online...sure,if you really have an important question,then yes,but I'm afraid that Sunday King will be flooded with questions as happened with the 'Ask KD' thread. I am expecting everybody who read this to download Skype and make an account.

Be reasonable!

Title: Re: Skype with King
Post by: Grace on March 17, 2010, 02:17:20 PM
So “Stop” it is? That doesn’t sound like something I agree with. Sorry. I am not spreading rumors, adding gossip or hurting anybody’s career. I am making observations that hang unanswered in the air.

I think people in general mistake points me and others have made in here for some sort of hate-mongering. King Diamond is, and will always be, my absolute favorite band, and as a long time die-hard fan I have very strong opinions on everything that pertains to the music, the lyrics, the management and everything else.

I believe in the individual's right to express his opinion and nothing pisses me off more than blindly subscribing to everything an artist says or does. Without constructive criticism there is no area of opportunity in which to expand and move forward. I always strive to be the absolute best I can be, in anything that I pursue, so if soliciting advice or creative input from outside sources is sometimes required to expand my horizons and put on a different colored thinking cap, then so be it. People who only listen to their own counsel are either absolute geniuses or fucking idiots. Geniuses are rare, idiots are not.

I don't have Skype so I can't have this discussion with King himself, and I doubt it would make a difference. I was a musician for many years, then worked in the music business, and now I am just a Joe Schmoe business man working for my family, but through all the years I have picked up a few things about what spells success and what doesn't. Surrounding yourself with talented people who 100% commit to your vision but still have the balls to tell you when you're wrong is an absolute requirement. Not only when you’re wrong, but also when you are almost right, to coax that last piece of the puzzle out of you. That is why even huge experienced bands and artists like Maiden, David Bowie, Bon Jovi or U2 hire a producer to chief over the recordings, to bring that unbiased outside perspective. Even smaller bands like Arch Enemy, Opeth and Dream Theater know this is the way to go. I think King would benefit greatly from loosening the reins a little and bring on Andy Sneap, Fredrik Nordstrom or some other demon producer to lord over the next album. Also, why not call a band camp BEFORE the songs are written this time around? All the best KD albums were always written and arranged as a band, so why is that option not there anymore? Geography is a lame excuse and I have a feeling there is a lot of untapped potential in Mike, Hal and Matt that could be brought out if they felt they were a part of the creative process from the beginning, rather than added as an afterthought when it’s time to rehearse and record the finished product. Andy is already pulling his weight, but is his heart in it the same it used to be? Maybe he needs a shot of adrenaline as well?

You can’t make a business out of creativity and art, or you will lose touch with your passion, but that is why you hire people to take care of all that for you. Who, at this point, is the steward of King’s career? Himself? His manager? Metal Blade Records? There is a breakdown somewhere and it needs to be fixed by King, and only King himself. If he doesn’t, then the band King Diamond will forever just be a quirky hobby that merely passes for an interesting footnote in the current history of metal as it is being written by more productive bands, and I, for one, think his music deserves a hell of a lot more than that. On a whole, it is heads and shoulders above the rest of the metal community on an average.

If you allow yourself as an artist to live on glories past, fine – King has deserved it, but then don’t act surprised when your current fan base dwindles to nothingness as there is NOTHING to keep the casual fan interested. Us die hard fans will be here to the end, but that is not where you make your money. We’re just the bread and butter of King’s career. He has to reach more people, and more often. He has to throw his name in the hat every chance he gets.

I don’t understand why anybody (you guys, King himself, or the band) would take offense to people being concerned about his career? Isn’t it in all our interest that he has a long and prosperous career that can afford him to be as creative as he chooses to be and at the same time being rewarded for his hard work and musical exceptionality?

Being a loyal fan is necessary, going to the shows and buying the records is a must, but just blindly cheering on is counter-productive and only serves to solidify the non-prosperous and barren status quo in the King Diamond camp.

I wish everybody all the best with their upcoming conversations with King, and I think it is an amazing initiative by him to get closer to his fans, but I don’t think we are the problem. I do however think King has so much more to offer the world of music than what is currently being put on the table. I think, and always did, that his best album is yet to come. And THAT is why I will always be a real fan.

Respectfully,

Grace

Problem here is that this "concerning" has gone a bit too far.
"Why King did this and why not that etc...instead he should do this..." It`s not just a discussion anymore, we are beginning to show aggressivness over things we actually do not know about - we don`t know details or reasons behind them.
I think this is the main reason why King wants to stop these kind of "shots in the dark", for this ain`t helping anyone.

In the light of this topic I guess I'm a little against the grain.
Don't get me wrong It's great to see some signs of life from the KD camp but...
I looked up what Skype is and I've been asking myself, why in the hell take the difficult route while there is a simple one; using this forum?
What if skype conversations with KD get misinterpret and they end up on the forum?

As far as I'm concerned, I'm not looking for personal contact with musicians.
I would rather see a section on the forum where longtime KD members can do some posting.
Tell us some crazy tourstories, show us some unique pics never seen before, tell us if you have a new story in your mind, tell us about back injuries, tell us about the switch from BC Rich to Caparison (I would love to see those cool BC Bitches back on stage), tell us about burning act on stage, man you guys should have lots to tell us about.
On the forum we can all read it whenever we want instead of waiting for some forthcoming Skype news.

Just my 2cts though and once again it's good to see a sign of life.

Hail to all of you

This is to you, Grace.
Appreciate all your concerns, but most of what you write simply doesn't apply to us for reasons you could not know.
I would love to be able to talk to you via Skype.
It's a very simple 5 minute process to set up Skype since you have a computer, all you would need, if you don't have it, is a headset.
You have some great ideas, some of which would not be possible because of our situation, and then some which we have actually been working on for a while now. We have made a lot of managing decisions lately which will give us a very good starting point for what I see as being King Diamond Chapter 2.

Again, I would really love to talk to you, in order to explain in more detail what we're doing and what we're not doing and why. I'm sure that in the end, everything that goes on would make a lot more sense.

If you decide to do the Skype thing, please let me know in this thread what your Skype name is.

Hail and Stay Heavy,

King.

I'm surprised you don't do it in the forums itself or another FAQ instead of Skype.  Then, at least, it's in your own words and everyone can see it.  And no one can misquote you.

Not that I, or anyone else, would want to miss an opportunity to talk to you, but...that could probably answer a lot of questions right there and hopefully put certain matters to rest.

It would be way too long and complicated to put in writing in an understandable way, plus the option to get a whole different live feedback would be missed.
This Skype thing is not just an option for you guys to have a talk with me, but just as much me having a chance to talk to you and know more about for instance what kind of merchandise would you like to see on the next tour? Etc etc.
 
I think it would be very beneficial to all of us.

This is for those who are posting and read the forums, it's not meant to be some kind of promotional stunt. If it spreads too much, there won't be enough time to get to talk to everyone. It's an opportunity for me to get valuable information from you and hopefully vice versa.

Stay Heavy,

King.

King, this is great that you want to, and are going to, take valuable time in talking with the fans. Gathering feedback from us all & also explaining to us exactly how things are is very welcome indeed.

KD has been my favourite band ever since i first listened to the Abigail album, & they will always continue to be. I never get tired of listening to the amazing music! I've never got the chance to see them live, but next time they tour i'll be hitting Europe for a week to take in as many gigs as i can. That said, i can agree with many points that the likes of Grace & the original poster who raised concerns said. I think constructive criticism is needed, not just in music but in all walks of life. I could never subscribe to the way some people will like everything that's released, just because it's their favourite band. I can admit to never fully getting into House of God, The Graveyard & Voodoo for instance, tho i do think everything that's been released prior to & since then is killer!

Many of us big fans know just how much KD's music is some of the best metal that's ever been released. The issue is that we probably feel that's it's never been promoted/advertised etc to its full potential, and feel that the band should be bigger than it is, huge even to be honest. You see so many average/decent bands being massive wordwide & we all know that KD are head & shoulders above so so many, and not many bands are as consistently brilliant music-wise as KD are. Heck, look at the talent the band has had & have now - King, Andy, Mikkey, Snowy, Pete, Hal, Denner, Matt, Wead etc, the list goes on. These guys & more are some of the most talented musicians there has been, not only in their playing but also with some of them in their writing. These guys, the whole band, the awesome music they make, they deserve & really should be a part of a much bigger music label - be promoted to the max, have wordwide tours set-up for them with no lack of money or support! I'm sure once King has spoken with everyone he needs to, that all our concerns will be answered. I think we all just want KD to be as big & successful as we know they should be!

I've probably repeated/echoed points that have already been said, but as a massive fan i needed to write my feelings. No criticism is bad, as long as it's constructive & has an output to what you're trying to say. With King arranging this Skype communication, i'm sure he's prepared for all of this & will take on board, not only all our concerns, but also all of our positive comments - let's not forget the positives in this also, as we all have many i'm sure!

Thanks for reading.....  :king:

Post by: valkator on March 17, 2010, 07:10:25 PM
This is a fantastic way to not only ask questions and get the answers directly from the source, but it's really a way for all of us to get on more personal terms as friends and artists. We all  have concerns about the band, what's happening with the dvd, new album, direction being taken, and so on. But more importantly, I think we're all just concerned about what's going on with you, King - and how we might be able to help with anything you need. Feedback is important.  Obviously, there's a line that doesn't get crossed with personal things - but the simple fact is that Mercyful Fate/King Diamond has always been - and will always be - clannish and 'small' in a real sense - a highly personal exchange between the band(s) and the 'fans' who, for their own personal reasons, resonate with the material. Let's face it, MF/KD has never been about 'fame and fortune' and worshipping of the popular 'rock star'. Popularity in terms of sales is one thing - but because of the nature of the material, itself - and what's being summoned through it - it's simply not a matter of how popular or famous the KD/MF 'brand' can be made as if King, the band, and all of us are simply commodities and objects. I would hope none of us actually view each other in this way. That's what will kill this type of communication outright. A closer look at the music industry will reveal that this type of commodification is what kills bands, musicianship, and everything else which makes real creation possible.

Business issues and maximizing earnings are important, certainly - everyone has to eat and pay bills! - but what matters in the end is what's being created and what's being carried forward through it - by King, the band, and the listeners all together. That's why we're all here, isn't it? If a few more shirts, cds, and dvds can be sold in the future through new marketing strategies, website design, and so on - great. But to do that really doesn't require communicating more closely with the established listeners of KD/MF to find out what they might or might not buy. Again, 'fans' aren't going to number in the hundreds of millions no matter what gets implemented. I don't think that's why you began creating in the first place, King. It's the artistic creation and exchange that drives things here - so that's what I see this as.

Here's an example of this personal exchange from another artistic medium - Crispin Glover, from Back to the Future 'fame' - is creating some highly provocative and powerful film that he presents in person with the viewers in what are essentially coffee houses - takes questions during the performance - and actually sits down and has discussions with everyone about the material he's creating.  

I think this is, in rough outline, what KD/MF has been all about at least in terms of vision for the band and listeners - and now we're entering a new phase of development between us all where this type of personal exchange is able to begin to take place beyond simple forum/blog posts and the miscommunication that typically happens with that type of 'distance'.

Valkator, nice post dude, good read. I liked what you wrote, some very good points.

I agree that it's not about how famous you can be & that KD/MF is not just about the 'fame & fortune'. You can tell by the consitent quality of music that's written that it's more than just making it for the fame. That said, i do feel that if the popularity of the band, & its sales, have an effect on such things as the inability to tour (because of lack of funds etc), then my points, & other peoples, about better promotion/bigger music labels etc are important. You're right also with what you said about helping with anything that's needed. I'm sure we all here would do everything we could to help in anyway, however big or small it was.

Problem here is that this "concerning" has gone a bit too far.
"Why King did this and why not that etc...instead he should do this..." It`s not just a discussion anymore, we are beginning to show aggressivness over things we actually do not know about - we don`t know details or reasons behind them.
I think this is the main reason why King wants to stop these kind of "shots in the dark", for this ain`t helping anyone.

DI-fuckin'-TTO!

I'm not saying that I don't partially agree with Grace,yes, but this has come to the point where we are literally shoving (or trying to shove) things down King's throat. But I do stand by the idea of band camp...everybody should have an input and not only King and Andy and some riffs here and there by the others...this is the little spark that IMO new KD albums lost... I'm in no way trying to push this onto King nor will I ask him why he won't do this but I THINK it would be a really good step forward and will bring out a more homogeneous feeling throughout the whole album...
There are more things that I THINK King should do but as it is,I do not know the REAL current situation and thus I am not in the right position to make presumptions nor impose anything.

Maybe more will be clarified upon this Sundays' talk...and let's keep it nice in here,shall we? We don't need shouts and insults...and keep the opinion an opinion!!!

Hi everyone,

Arrival: You will need a headset or a microphone and speakers to be able to converse with King.
He will not take written questions on Skype chat, that kind of defeats the purpose of the whole thing :)

Madhatter: Yes, the conversations can be recorded and put on the net for all coven members to hear what was talked about exactly. If someone does record it however, please state so in the beginning of the conversation (but after the recording has started, it needs to be audible on it) so that everyone knows they're being recorded. In some states it's illegal to record a conversation without letting the other(s) know.

If you have a 2.5mm headset port on your computer then you are good to go.

Otherwise you need to buy a 2.5mm to 2x 3.5mm adapter which will allow you to plug it into the microphone and headphones ports on most computers.

It should also work just by plugging it into a wired xbox 360 controller that is plugged into your PC.

After hooking it up, go to your audio devices list and make sure both the mic and the speakers in the headset are enabled.

You may have to manually update your soundcard drivers as well, because (at least with some notebooks) vista auto update will install the wrong ones, or won't update them at all.

EDIT: You can buy cheap headsets for around $10 dollars, and save yourself all the trouble too :)

I can't help you much with updating your sound card driver, for that you need to know the make of your sound card device, go to the manufacturer's website (or Vista's if they have it, not sure), and download and install the latest update for it.

For instance, I have Conexant High Definition Smart Audio 221, so I'd go to Conexant's website and find the relevant update there.

Hopefully you don't have to deal with all that though, updating drivers can be very... sucky... if you don't exactly know what to do.

I can't help you much with updating your sound card driver, for that you need to know the make of your sound card device, go to the manufacturer's website (or Vista's if they have it, not sure), and download and install the latest update for it.

For instance, I have Conexant High Definition Smart Audio 221, so I'd go to Conexant's website and find the relevant update there.

Hopefully you don't have to deal with all that though, updating drivers can be very... sucky... if you don't exactly know what to do.

im confident i will be golden and if i need to do that i have some nerds that can help me! :gah: :gah: :gah:

I have CCleaner i havent used it in a few months because i don't really use my station computer. I am normally on the labtop but that has gone down for some reason and keeps on going in blue screen before i reaches Windows. I sadly have used to much space on my station to be able defrag it. I would have to delete a lot of stuff but i really don't know where to start.

I have also been told that i might be able to fix it by repairing my Windows with my original Windows disc?

Blue screen of death before loading Windows can happen for various reasons. There's a registry error, a virus, or Windows is crapping in on you.
What version of Windows are you running?
Can you boot up your computer in Safe Mode?

Also, is your hard drive partitioned?

(O_o... I is a nerd)

Lack of space on the hard drive shouldn't really give you blue screen, unless it is simply so full that essential windows applications can't load.
I have external hard drives to put all my stuff on, that way they're backed up and also free up a lot of space on my internal HDD.
You can do the repair you mentioned earlier, however, if your HDD is extremely full, that won't really work either since windows doesn't have the space for the virtual memory the repair needs.

You should try and run chkdsk (checkdisk), see if there's a corruption on your hard drive.

Also, you might need to check what programs get started up alongside windows.
If you suspect a program might cause the crash, disabling unnecessary automatic program loads can point you to which program is messing with you. If you decide to do that (after checking the hard drive for corruption), you should disable programs in safe mode one by one so that you can see which one affects your windows.
It's quite a lengthy process, seeing as you pretty much have to reboot your computer a million times (depending on how many programs you have on auto load).

I have like 20GB on the C Drive and the same on the D Drive. I have in a long time wanted to by an external with loads of space but havent done it yet. Why i don't really know.

How do i run chkdsk?

I will try to delete Yahoo Messenger and a few other softwares then might be that causing some trouble. I hope i can get it all fixed before sunday

First,

I would suggest free programs called Anti-Malware bytes and Super Anti Spyware.  Those get rid of just about everything.  CCleaner works good too.

Second, to King,

I want to thank you for your calm and reasonable approach to some peoples criticism.  You have taken what could have been a bad situation and made it much better.  This is one of several reasons why you have been and will always be my favorite musician of all time.

Double-click My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check.
Click Properties, and then click Tools.
Under Error-checking, click Check Now. A dialog box that shows the Check disk options is displayed,
Use one of the following procedures:
To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, click Start. (This option will not repair an error, just report on it)
To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, select the Automatically fix file system errors check box, and then click Start.
To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.

Note: If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message:
The disk check could not be performed because the disk check utility needs exclusive access to some Windows files on the disk. These files can be accessed by restarting Windows. Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer?
Click Yes to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

The following table lists the exit codes that Chkdsk reports after it has finished:
Exit code   Description
0   No errors were found.
1   Errors were found and fixed.
2   Disk cleanup, such as garbage collection, was performed, or cleanup was not performed because /f was not specified.
3   Could not check the disk, errors could not be fixed, or errors were not fixed because /f was not specified.


I use Avast! as virus checker, it detects about everything and the program is free.
You should run CCleaner too, it frees up a lot of space on your hard drive if you haven't done it recently, and it also erases/fixes unnecessary registry entries that might have something to do with mucking up your system.

EDIT: 20GB should be still enough space to run your system, so that's not the problem.

3   Could not check the disk, errors could not be fixed, or errors were not fixed because /f was not specified.

If you get either of #2 or #3, you will have to start chkdsk in the command prompt.
If that's the result you get, let me know and I'll tell you how to do it manually.

Running chkdsk should't take a long time, but I know how it is when you have windows running with a different language than English. :)
I run into that quite often when I try to help my dad with his computer. :)

In any case, after you ran chkdsk and it fixed any errors (if there was any), you should run CCleaner. After that, if your computer keeps being an ass, you should do the auto startup elimination thing I mentioned earlier.
I will try to check this topic throughout the day, and see if there's anything I can help with. :)

EDIT: If you do the auto startup thing.... Make sure you don't disable things like your monitor's driver, or some such thing. Generally, if you see a program running under the folder "system" or if it ends in .dll, you shouldn't stop it from loading automatically.
Things like realplayer, messenger, any sort of that kind of programs can safely be disabled from automatically starting up.
I can't remember how it is in XP, but Vista just reapplies the auto start to programs that are essential for running the system in case you disabled it accidentally *whew*.

Yes, definitely do the CCleaner as soon as possible.
Not just the normal cleanup, but also the registry.
Don't worry about it erasing anything important, it won't. :)

Check if you can run a virus detection too.

EDIT yet again :P : Run CCleaner first, THEN defrag. That way, your computer won't have to organize and wade through all the unnecessary stuff that's stored on your system. ^_^ Also, defragging first then doing CCleaner defeats the purpose of the first defrag, because after erasing a ton of stuff, your computer will be unorganized again.

As far as I know, there's no need to change anything on the list.

Under the registry, everything is checked in.

Combofix

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix)

It takes anywhere from 10 - 30 minutes to run.  Follow the instructions on this webpage carefully.  I would also suggest printing the instructions first and then running the program.  This tool will find levels of infection that most antivirus and Malware programs never find.

Hi everyone,

Arrival: You will need a headset or a microphone and speakers to be able to converse with King.
He will not take written questions on Skype chat, that kind of defeats the purpose of the whole thing :)

Madhatter: Yes, the conversations can be recorded and put on the net for all coven members to hear what was talked about exactly. If someone does record it however, please state so in the beginning of the conversation (but after the recording has started, it needs to be audible on it) so that everyone knows they're being recorded. In some states it's illegal to record a conversation without letting the other(s) know.

Thanks Livia. I'll buy a mic and headphone this saturday...though afternoon texas time is 4 am in India. I'll need a lot of caffeine to keep myself awake. :(

Thanks a lot for adding me King.
We as the fans highly appreciate your decision to make Skype account. It'll definitely make us closer to you and provide wearing off all the rumoured stuff. Throughout the years my mind was fed with your image and music, vivid position in life and stories.
Mr.King Diamond, I hope we will meet one day somewhere in the streets of Dallas and sing together: Grandma' Welcome Home!!!

Loads of great tips from Livia.

Ccleaner is a great programme & i run it quite a lot. As far as anti-virus, i use Kaspersky, which is great. Not only does it protect your pc, but it also checks your programmes & apps & lets you know which need updated.

I think Livia already mentioned it, but unticking programmes from starting on boot-up is quite handy. I go into 'run' section on the start menu. Type 'msconfig' then go to the start-up list. Untick everything that isn't required on start-up....itunes, adobe, quicktime etc.

I can help anyone if they're not sure what to do.

Ad-aware free is also great. It's free, of course, & great for removing spyware.

If anyone needs help or in fact needs any programmes they can't get hold of, then just let me know :)

Get a full scan and look for skype.exe and see if it has a problem...never encountered this before.
Otherwise, This (https://imo.im/) could help...you can chat w/o having to install it...you just need to remember your username and password.
The place is pretty safe,so no hacking :gah:

...I suggest that you write your coven name into my skype chat, such as "This is Aeon666". That way I can look at the chat history and can see which one of you are registered users here.

A lot of people seem to be posting all their Skype info here on the forums instead of in a text message to King in Skype (even though he his offline, I believe the text messages get to him when he signs on). 

https://support.skype.com/faq/FA10329/When-my-Skype-presence-is-set-to-Invisible-what-happens?frompage=search&q=offline+text+message

Yes...

Everyone here who hasn't done it yet, please just send us a little message in skype chat with your CWW forum name, so I can sort you all into the CWW category. :)

Also, please you be the one who adds King on Skype, I don't have the time to look you up and send you a contact request. :)

As fas as I know king will call us and will appear as Offline right? Can you let us know at what time (texas time) he will be making the calls... this is just to make sure the period of time on which we have to be "availbable" in order to wait for him to call us.

Can't predict what's going to happen exactly, but King plans to do this a couple of times on Sunday, not just once.
As for any hour specific details, we don't know that.

And yes, nobody will be able to see when King is online :)

Ok... even  so it will be interesting the expectative created waiting for his call... I think that this whole skype thing was a terrific idea and it shows how much King is close and worried about his fans.... not all the music Icons do that...

Prepaid card?  Service?

Skype is free.  FREE.  If you're thinking about the actual "phone call" crap that you can do with it, you don't need that.  Skype to Skype calls are absolutely free.  Have been since I started using Skype a few years ago.

Skype is completely free to use for chatting, talking, and video calls.
You don't have to pay for anything.

The only thing you would have to pay for is if you want to set up a real phone number for yourself where people can call you, or if you want to make phone calls from Skype to normal landlines.

What King is going to use is the VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol [in English: Computer to computer calling]) conference call feature, where he will invite 2-3 fans into a conversation.
Like I said earlier, VOIP, chat and video calls are free :)

All you need to do is download and install Skype, add King as a contact, and wait to see if a window pops up saying "King Diamond is calling. Answer? Yes or No". ^_^

Do you still want to visit next summer? xD What I meant is this: 'indoiesc' has 2 meanings: to doubt(a te indoi) and to bend in half(a indoi without the 'te' which comes from the 'yourself' pronoun) ...so I was asking you if you bend yourself in two,I knew you wouldn't get it :fingers:

I'm having all kinds of technical problems. I guess a conversation with King is just not meant to be. It's very depressing :'( to say the least. I've been looking forward to this for years, so to speak. In fact, I went all the way from India to Australia just to get me Abigail 2 as I couldn't find it anywhere here.

Anyways thanks King and Livia for an awesome initiative :). Thanks for giving us another reason for all the fans to stay loyal to the band. Cheers to whoever gets to speak to King(although I probably wish for you to burn in Hell as well  :fingers:) ).

King's in good health. He provided fantastic details about upcoming DVDs, including super-secret exclusive content. He shared many incredible touring stories with us, including crazy stuff about near-death experiences. He also confirmed that he would have given pro soccer a tryout if he hadn't become a musician. If he had a choice as to which one musician he would bring back from the dead, it would be Jimi Hendrix or Keith Moon.

I'm still in shock that I actually talked to King Diamond. The man is so gracious, friendly and down-to-earth. There are no words to describe the sheer awesome. :king:

So dear people from coven, there are some facts king spoke with me and two other guys:
1. His back are quite good at this moment so we all do not need to be too much concerned about that, he said that his next tour almoust 100% starts next year,
2. About DVD's i didn't understand too much when they will be finally released but I think that even King doesn't know that yet 'cause he had some bad period last couple weeks 'cause his cat magic died, and I'm really sorry because of that, so he needed to stop work on DVD's but as I said, maybe I'm not compleately right about this
3. he told us that he has some rough story for next album but he will not tell any details about the story until it's finished, but as he said, he told it to Andy so he can start working on music and getting into the mood and said that Andy was delighted about story
4. i asked some questions prepared earlier as Will King Diamond make one day unplugged show, he explicitly sad NO, 'cause he said that acoustic instruments couldn't make those fillings like original songs, honestly i was a little dissapointed 'cause I still think that his music sound great on acoustic guitar but I respect his attitude
5. Also I asked about some new album by MF, he said that it would probably happen in near future but because it's much expensive to make and release MF album than KD, it will happen when they find good contract with some record company but without making MF sound like something popular today but real MF master piece
6. there was Livia too, i hope she will not be mad at me, so I felt free to ask King about kids in some near future so he said that they very much like kids but at this moment it couldn't be their priority but definitely something that will happen in near future. I am glad for it 'cause I think that his gens must be inherited!  :)
7. Also asked about playing instruments on his shows, he said that he never played guitar live on stage
8. he said that he hate sound of saxophone  :king:

Well there are so much more details but at this moment i can't write anymore, so I hope you will be satisfied at least a little and i hope you understood all this corectly 'cause my English is not so good!

Yes, it can be used to record a call, however, it only records 15 minutes at a time.
I'd recommend CallGraph.

I think someone recorded the first conversation, maybe it will be put up here sometime.

EDIT: King is sleeping now, he was up all night and finished the 2nd call around 10:00 am. It'll be a couple of hours before he starts making more calls.

Yea, it's true but as King said, he and Livia getting trough hard time this days but it will make them stronger so i think that anything new that He create will be absolutely awesome!

We also spoke about making movie with some of his stories he would really love that but it's hard to find right people to do that
he will probably write some autobiography book one day, and there was one more, this time very funny thing for me. He said "I had not read a book for about ten years" so it was so funny for me 'cause i also didn't!  :)

At the end of conversation I asked him if he has some questions for us and he then asked all of us what we are doing in our lives!

All in all, he is so kind man, it was so nice talking with him (of course he was speaking most of time  :)) and i can't describe to you how am I honored!

I am not familiar with Creative Wave Studio. Thing is, recording VOIP calls is different from recording other things, because the recording programs needs to be able to have access to the ports the sound goes through, both in and outbound.
Here's a program that's easy to set up, free, and records in good quality:  www.callgraph.biz

@ Livia one question
What was King's criteria for choosing people for conversations at this very beginning if there was any or it was absolutely random!
I would really like to know that!
thank you!

It's absolutely random, there is no criteria. :)
Of course, your status should be set to "Online" so we know that you're available.

Arrgghh i'm at work (it is 8 in the morning here in Australia)... I could Skype with King but he would have to put up with me in a business suit and my angry boss in the background yelling at me to get off.....

This is an awesome idea, many bands/artists dont get personal with fans like this. I have never seen a member of Iron Maiden on their forum for instance.  What a guy!

Hey guys, here's the recording of the first convo with King. The link's only good for ten downloads, so I'm sure we'd all appreciate it if someone rehosted it!

Vlad & Maiden: I got you both on the contact list, don't worry. :)

That was something I was also wondering about: how do we know we're on his contact list?

I added him probably the day he posted the Skype with King thread and send a message in it to let him know my profile name from the forum.

Not a huge issue, as he already has 240+ contacts.  If I get a call some day, then I'll know.

I'm going to find out the hard way: leave my Skype on and see if he calls. 

I was actually going to not login to my Skype because I froze up when it came to thinking of questions to ask him.  Hopefully something he hasn't heard over and over and over again.  After calming down, I've been taking the time to write them down.  Just incase.

I think, if it happens, it happens.  I just hope my daughter is awake when and if he calls so he can answer her question about his back and when we can see him.  I keep telling her "someday", but maybe if she hears it from HIM directly...

Honestly, I'm still in shock about the whole Skype thing. 

If you haven't yet, go download the MP3 one of the guys posted of the Skype call and listen to it.  It's great.

Thanks so much,I thought I was going to have to strangle someone to get that recording!

It's so cool that you could talk to him,I didn't open my Skype yesterday in fear that if he'd called,I wouldn't have been able to properly talk to him given the fact that I got sick and cough from second to second...maybe next week...it would rock! At least I have time to come up with interesting questions that, I hope, weren't asked yet(or too much xD )

First of all, huge thanks to King for doing this. You are the greatest! It was a great honor for the fans to talk with you. Personally I didn't get a chance to talk with King Diamond this time but I hope we will have more Skype conversations (or something different) in the future. Talking with King would be like a dream come true so hopefully I do have more luck next time. Mostly I guess you guys/girls asked the right questions about the DVD's, upcoming tour, the new album etc. I would love to have the autobiographical book of King Diamond someday. I'm not sure who asked about it or did King mention it himself but it was very good question indeed. Some of my planned questions are timeless so at least I might ask one of them if I ever get a chance to talk with King Diamond. Last time when I was supposed to do the interview for Finnish Internet magazine Korroosio the tour was cancelled, now I didn't get the call... so I hope I'll get a chance on "the third time". I'm glad for those who talked with King. You rock!

Thanks to Livia as well. It was cool that you posted on the topic and helped (/tried to help) everyone in every matter. I do appreciate it.

Sorry to hear that Magic died. It makes me sad. :'(


I got the Conference Call.mp3 so I'm pleased. I will listen to it soon. Is it allright if I send it to other fans? I will add it to a part of my bootleg collection though it's not bootleg.

You are not alone... I didn't get a call either  :'(
Sorry to hear, man. Did you watch the monitor the whole night? I was almost the whole day in front of my monitor but when the clock was 2 AM in Finland I went to sleep. I was so tired (because I've had some sleeping problems lately), you can't imagine. Next time I'll try to be awake a few more hours if we get another chance to talk with King.

Thanks to cool guys Vlad the Impaler, Spooky, arrival, King and BellWitchMF. It was great to share thoughts with you through Skype. :cool:

P.S. I got a call yesterday. But it was from some guy from Egypt. He just kept saying on the phone "arabic, arabic, only arabic" and I saw his picture on my monitor. The only English words he used during the call were "only" and "sorry" at the end of the conversation. :P

Just finished listening to the uploaded conversation. Very very cool, especially toward the beginning when King was talking about going to record stores and staring at all the cool and mysterious album covers. It takes me back, that's for sure (I'm 37, and did my share of staring at cool album covers in record stores). I can't believe the conversation is as long as it is. This is one of the coolest fan interactions any artist has done. I hope it continues in the future.

And to whoever was playing "Them" on guitar -- I could almost hear your fingers trembling, haha. It sounded good, though, when you managed to hit the right notes. :D

edit: I used the word "cool" way too much there. But this is really cool.

While the quality might be greatly reduced, you might be able to use Skype with your computer's built-in speakers and mic. Did you run the Skype audio/video test (without plugging in headphones and mic)? At least that way you can find out if it's the port or the headphones.

Surprisingly they said the microphone is working fine. What could it be?  :-\

If the little bar moves up and down (next to the microphone icon) when you make any noise, without an external mic plugged in, then your built-in mic works fine. When you ran the speaker test, did you hear the tones that were played back? If so, then your speakers work, and I don't see that there's a problem. Obviously everything would sound better with a headset, or separate mic and headphones, but you might be able to wing it.

He said there were a lot of problems with the old footage and converting it but they have fixed everything and they have disc 1 of 3 for the KD DVD done. Now that they have a system for working with the DVD's everything should go very smooth from this point on hopefully. Next year we should have some new KD or a tour or both. A lot of good things will happen so we just have to have a little patience and King will make good on a new album,tour, dvd's,fanclub type stuff, new merch, and a few other really cool things.

Somebody knows or ask him when he´s going to make more phone calls?

According to what I've seen posted in this thread, it's only on Sunday's and when he/they (THEM!!!!) have free time. 

"He's going to make calls a few times during Sunday, not just once.  I don't know any exact times though." -- Livia Zita

I was up until 4:30 AM.  Wasn't necessarily waiting for a phone call from him, but since I was doing other things on the computer, I did leave Skype on.

This will not be on any kind of firm schedule, but will more likely be a thing that happens out of the blue, whenever time, mood, etc. is right.
So don't hang around wasting your time for me to call, but rather, always make sure you are set to online status. I will always appear as offline, because this account will only be used for this.


Like the quote says above, King might decide to call up some of you whenever "time, mood, etc. is right".
This might mean a Wednesday at 3 am, or Saturday at 6 pm; it could happen any time. He might make more calls already today.
We don't know.

this is honestly amazing, some of the coolest stuff i've ever heard, it's amazing to hear King talk straight from the heart and chat about things in his life and what's on his mind and it's really kick ass man.  I love it, kudos to those who record and upload this and much thanks for King to spend some time to do this especially without charging and recording silly 20 second messages and charge people money like other bands...

can't describe how much it means to me to hear this:D

it really shows what a nice and genuine guy you are King!

you're awesome!

i believe that was the first call,though i;m not sure.i know i missed his first call then he called back.

we spoke about alot,i asked if he had heard Demonica's album and he said he had not yet and i told him every time i hear it i miss Mercyful fate even more.He said he would like to do a another MF record but would need a better deal.
we talked about bootlegs and some funny stuff on those,like a show from 99 when he would introduce melissa he would say "i wanna be melissa" but on the boot he says "i wanna be jesus" say he didn't remember and laughed.
He also spoke about why he doesn't talk about upcoming stories for albums.for instance Vodoo was supposed to be called the Plauge.

We talked about Magics passing and i told him about the loss of my pet and how much the song "so sad" means to me.i feel real bad about their loss,it was only 2 weeks ago.They are making a necklace with three rings to honor magic and he said as soon as it is done he would be wearing it always.

spoke about alot more and i hope everyone gets the honor of speaking with King too.

He said there were a lot of problems with the old footage and converting it but they have fixed everything and they have disc 1 of 3 for the KD DVD done. Now that they have a system for working with the DVD's everything should go very smooth from this point on hopefully. Next year we should have some new KD or a tour or both. A lot of good things will happen so we just have to have a little patience and King will make good on a new album,tour, dvd's,fanclub type stuff, new merch, and a few other really cool things.  
Great news, I really wait for good news, maybe there will be a words or new posibility of news DVDs, I pray for that

Title: Re: Skype with King
Post by: Kings Fate on March 22, 2010, 10:39:50 AM
If I'm correct this is going to be on the KD dvd's:
- The 1986 Washington show; I guess this is the Washington DC show 1986-28-8
- A 1987 show while supporting Motörhead
- Some 1989 show & backstage footage
- 1990 Spain show/Conspiracy Tour (I guess one of the 3 March shows they did in Spain that year)
- 1990 other Conspiracy Tour footage
- The Copenhagen show from 1990-7-21 (also known as the Faelledparken show)

I'm not 100% sure, if someone has more details please add.

Bolivarmaxi & Countess De La Fey:
Regarding the DVD content, YES, things change along the way. At this point, it looks like the King Diamond DVD set will consist of 3 disks.
Disk 1: the outdoor show in Copenhagen from 1990.
Disk 2: VEGA, Copenhagen 1997 (the opening show of the King Diamond/Mercyful fate double header European tour) + bits and pieces from 1990 Euro Conspiracy tour, including behind the scenes stuff.
Disk 3: Washington 1987 + bits and pieces from 1989 US Conspiracy tour, including behind the scenes stuff.


The Spanish show has been exchanged with the 1997 VEGA show because we noticed that big parts of that Spanish show had unfortunately already been leaked and is available on various sites on the internet.
Also, when checking the 45 minute support for Motorhead in 1987, it became clear that the sound is too distorted.

With respect to the Mercyful Fate DVD set, at this point it stands as you listed but we have not yet started working on it in detail.
Don't hold me to this, but we might be able to get our hands on some more early Mercy in very good quality (multi-cam), straight from those who shot it in Holland. Some of this has been available on the internet, but never in a multi-cam edit and guaranteed not in the quality we can make it in. This would expand the 3 DVD set to a possible 4 DVD set, BUT as I said, this is not a thing you should hold me to. Things change all the time.

Hope this clarifies the VEGA 1997 confusion.

A big cheers to you! I´ve listened the whole conversation too and I always wonder how great storyteller King is. One of my friend comes always to my mind, maybe he has some similar energy that King has. There´s no any boring moments with him. I´m sad because of Magic, always loved cats. Just noticed Magic probably was part of King´s family at very long time. Take care all members of coven!

king also spoke about some scary tour trips they had, once in italy they were in snowy storm with a bus and the storm was so hard that literaly moved the bus, then, somewhere between florida and louisiana wheel fell of the bus so they get in some high muddy grass and wait there quite long but there was serious danger from aligators, some poisonous spiders etc.
he spoke about some plain trips also but can't remember it now

at the end I told him this: King, you are not a King, you are a Tzar! and he laughed!  :)

King has the book, I have seen it too. One of the most brutal things I've ever seen O_O
It says on the cover "For children between 3-6 years old, happy and funny stories with illustrations" or something like that.

My favorite story is of the little girl who was told not to play with matches but she does anyways, then the story goes on with nice details on how her hair catches on fire first, then her clothes, then her skin. All accompanied by colored drawings.  :gah:
She ends up being a smoldering, smoking pile of ash while her two cats cry over her.

Yeah, very happy and funny I say O_O

It says on the cover "For children between 3-6 years old, happy and funny stories with illustrations" or something like that.

My favorite story is of the little girl who was told not to play with matches but she does anyways, then the story goes on with nice details on how her hair catches on fire first, then her clothes, then her skin. All accompanied by colored drawings.  :gah:
She ends up being a smoldering, smoking pile of ash while her two cats cry over her.

Yeah, very happy and funny I say O_O

i would love to read that book livia!! tell king i love him!!! and when i get my chance to talk to him i have quite a few questions lined up for him ! hehe :king: :cool:

What is the name of the book? My wife is studying Danish at University and she would like to check out that book as well.
Sounds very brutal but interesting. :gah:

It's called ''Den Store Bastian'' King Diamond, MaidenJersey, King and i had a little fun talk about it over skype because my name is Bastian :cool:

Yeah! I don't understand how that could ever be for kids! Even though it has morale, more or less :cool:

Yeah, it must have been fun conversation. You should love the book because of it's name. :gah:
I hope my wife can found it somewhere. Her Danish teacher might know where to find it.


EDIT: I listened the first "Conference Call" conversation. Loved it. King is absolutely amazing storyteller. I'm now waiting the new album and the collector's item.

To Soccer fans: I guess King supports Aston Villa because he mentioned the game Aston Villa-Wolverhampton. Many of his favourite bands are from Birmingham... so..?! :gah:

It's a microphone cum headphone set...each connected to their respective jacks. My microphone is getting detected, however it's not recording. When I speak on the mic or try to record, there's no response. I think it's a problem with the jack. Nothing that can be fixed immediately :(
I've faced the same problem and still do.Even if I had fixed it,I wouldn't have been able to talk to King cause I was out all day on Sunday.King called,big dissappointment to miss it,but I 'm almost covered by the answers He gave to the people He spoke to!ALMOST covered,therefore I expect a second call if He shows mercy for my disrespect... :D And If I ever fix the god damned f... mic!

PS.King,I shook Your hand and we spoke for 2 minutes outside the hotel in Athens just after the show in 2006.Biggest day of my life,after my kids being born 3 months ago.Stay well,and get back on stage as soon as possible! :king:

When I look those pictures Livia posted I started to realize there's something familiar with Den Store Bastian book. Infact my wife told me that something in the pictures looks like character called Jörö-Jukka (http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%B6r%C3%B6-Jukka) in Finnish. So I think that "Jörö-Jukka" is one of the stories of the Den Store Bastian book. I'm not sure if the original idea of that character is from Denmark. At least I found from google that Jörö-Jukka is translation from German Struwwelpeter (a character made by Heinrich Hoffmann). When you put Jörö-Jukka to google's picture search the results are (http://images.google.fi/images?um=1&hl=fi&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Afi%3Aofficial&channel=s&tbs=isch%3A1&sa=1&q=j%C3%B6r%C3%B6+jukka&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&start=0).
Looks very much of a same. :) My guess is that Den Store Bastian is from Denmark but some of the character's have been taken from elsewhere.

Hail

This was meant for the people on the forum, but of course I cannot ignore other people.
All of you on the forum will get priority and I suggest that you write your coven name into my skype chat, such as "This is Aeon666". That way I can look at the chat history and can see which one of you are registered users here.

Stay Heavy,

King.
I got skype to work,

User name WreckedNeck
Real name: Dwayne

Not sure which name will show up on your end cuz I don't know if I set it up right :gah:

Is this something you will be doing only on Sundays? Or should I open up skype any time I am on the computer? Sorry if this has been answered, guess anyone can answer it for me :king:

Really cool of you to do this, probably the closest I will ever come to actually meeting you. ANd I do owe you an apoplogy, but you'll only get it if I ever get a chance to talk with you :D

I've had a good listen to the mp3 interview. It is great to hear King so candid and so fired up to continue making music. He sounded real keen to start recording the next KD (had spoken to Andy about the theme etc) and it seems guaranteed that next time the band tours it will record as much action as possible.

King mentioned the bonus footage for the recent Voodoo remaster is actually a split of two tours and you can see him in two different makeups during the song.

I also really liked his description of the Conspiracy recording sessions how he wasn't happy with the producer so he would go into the studio late at night to record vocals after everyone else had left for the day.

He asked what kind of merchandise we'd like on the next tour. What about The Eye necklaces or black top hats with the KD logo?

For anyone that was on another call with the King, was there any interesting discussion on previous releases etc.

He didn't tell that, he will announce that when it becomes a reality, a new album i think that is

Yes he said they want to included something special when you buy the album that you cant get if you download it, so that is really fucking awesome. He also said that they had zero budget to make the GMYSP video and it was basically pasted together because the label was tight on the purse strings. He seemed really pumped for the second chapter of the KD band after the long rest. I did ask him if he thought that people misunderstood him and forget that he is a performer first and foremost. The answer was long and total class and I dont want to misquote him at all. What I got out of it was that people need to talk things out more like humans in hopes of understanding each other better because there is no one answer so people should be more open. Something that I always believed and it was really cool to hear him talk about it. He does try to clear stuff up if people misquote him or take things out of context so that is always a good thing in my book.I also asked him about the direction of the band and I said something to the effect of some people cant get into the newer king diamond and want to hear Abigail 3 etc... and I told him that I thought that would be boring if he just made the same album over and over again and he totally agreed.I wish I could of recorded it all for everyone on the coven but I just downloaded skype so I was not sure how to record it. Hopefully if he calls again I will be able to record some of it :P

Great good point, if he includes a DVD of sesions of recording of writting recordiong, some rehearsal definitly increse the sale of the cd, and the piracy of internet can´t reach the best quality that you can find in a DVD
In the other poion about the second  chapter of king diamond will be great, spacially if they filmed some tours with several cameras and great sound, see bands that increse their sales with material like this

if you have seen some material about Mercyful Fate or King Diamond and low quality you Know what it means (what I am everytime said DVD)
if you cant see in live your favorite band the only hope to see it (again I said DVD)  it is in your Plasma TV,  it is fustraiting that you can only hear noise and bad image when you see the bootlegs, if you see around each fucking bad artist in this world like Rick martin, shakira, Enrique Iglesias,etc and others have dvds and they don´t have any talent, tha is the reason for  why I try to presure each one to give the massague to the band, they are the best even more that slayer, metallica and Dream Theater, King Diamond is a masterman puppet on the stage, his performance with a little support can reach all world wiht some theatrical experiences

About MF my best disere will be it lauch first than King Diamond but it is a dream I promes not preasure to MF it will be in 2011
But new album will be better of MF and KD

Great good point, if he includes a DVD of sesions of recording of writting recordiong, some rehearsal definitly increse the sale of the cd

He didnt say that was what they were including with the purchase of future albums.

My mother read the stories of the book you were talking about to me when I was a child (I'm 21 now). I've always thought it was from a German author.
Thinking about it, I'm quite surprised now that I wasn't scared to death back then. Actually I really liked it. The stories were told in rhymes and I can still remember the illustrations which fascinated me.
Maybe that's why I'm such a freak now  :gah:

I did ask him this and he said ecspecially with remaster releases there is a great chance some of those songs would come in the only one we actually talked about by name was one down, two to go! he explained how that song came about, He said that when abigail 2 came out he wanted to do abigail 1 & 2 pretty much the whole albums but he didnt get toi tour that much for it and by the time he did puppet master was out and so they were like shit we still wanna do the abigail thing but now we got this new album so they decided to just go ahead and do a heavy dose of abigail 1 & 2 which is what they did & that originally Arrival was not suppost to be played but a week before the tour he was watching an old video and just remebered how fucking kick ass arrival was so he called up Andy and said hey we have not played this song in a long time do ya think we can pull it off and they agreed they could so they all busted there ass to get that song down! It seems watching old videos has been cool cause thats how decided he wanted to bring at the graves back!
       He talked about some weird stuff that happened when he got a pair of Nazi gestapo boots livia's father brought him that the soldier actually died In, And about what inspired welcome princess of hell! and the haunting on the set of the welcome Home video, He talked about great of a job Kevin Smith did with clerks 2 and the song he really loved when they were dancing and she said SOMETHING A LIL LESS DEMONIC PLEASE!  :gah: :gah: :gah: Which I asked him about how that came to be since im seeingh Kevin Smith in a few weeks i told King I would ask Kevin the same thing since its A Q&A and im suppost to tell King what he says, King also told me to tell him he did a great job! So a lil nervous abouty that but hey getting Kevin to talk about King will be great! so he did tell some Dime storys they were doing some rehersals for a show were they were gonna play The Green Manalishi & Omens but they only got to do each song once before Dime decided its drinking time haha! it was a great time for me cause for me King is the reason im a Metal Head he was the first for me so its very special! And cant wait to get another chance! And hey leave Skype on and maybe change your ring tone to a loyud one so you can hear it thats what i did cause ther regular one is a lil quiet!

Yes, from what I recall in interviews King said that "Welcome Princess of hell" is about him welcoming these powers that were around him into his home and life. and that he saw these spirits as his guardians who protected him and were always behind him.  and that they showed up to him as a way of saying good luck we are behind you.

How fantastic is it to hear King talk about setlists that are quite random. If he plays At The Graves, Behind These Walls, at least one off each of the remasters, 2 or 3 off GMYS...P, a few of the future release and a few older classics like Arrival and Welcome Home or Victimized we are looking at a killer setlist.

These skype conversations are proving King to be fully engaged in his music, writing new material and touring again. All hail the King!

Ok thanks.  My favorite ghost story still Has to be the time some girl challenged his beliefs in spirits and stuff so King summoned one up which freaked the girl out and then it began breathing in front of the Satanic Altar in king's Living room which King says you hear what the breathing of the spirit sounded like in the very begining of the "HOG" album.

man...this is awesome, been following MF/KD since I was about 13 or 14 yrs old, nearly 39 now, I'm a die hard fan & collector, the chance to actually speak with my all time hero/legend is mind blowing, I'll be speechless, honestly...speechless, I have a million questions, but I think my nerves may get the better of me, however it's to good an opportunity to miss, so I'm up for it

I'm in the UK, so our timings are well off, hopefully I can get to chat with you king some evening GMT

Just setup my skype account, name - www.jackglass.co.uk

It's a pain in the ass because I don't have any idea where to drag the files? For some reason on this computer, the files have to be dragged all over the place to work. My girlfriend's a technology geek, so I think she may be able to get the job done. :cool:

Same; i'm in GMT in Scotland and leave skype on when i am at home and will do because i think king will call, i'm possibly the most fanatical fan of the band in scotland that i know of and maybe even the uk. I'd certainly hold my passion for the band against any other fan on this forum.

The idea of chatting with King is nerve racking and i am a naturally confident person, however i'll need to be on the ball and want to make a good impression on my hero. I have some questions regarding GMYSP which as many of you know is one of my least favourite albums alongside The Graveyard, but I also want to discuss what lays ahead in terms of new albums by either MF or KD.

Personally I'd rather avoid personal questions and just concentrate on his music because that's why i dig the band & the man, not for his belief's or his interaction with fans, which i respect...but because his music is awesome and I want him to know from me in person just how big an influence he's been on me since I was a teenager.

I'm desparate for a new KD album and begging for a new MF one, I think King will deliver both in time, he always has. The least we can expect is a very good album, the best is a metal masterpiece, which he has done many times before. A class act, a class performer and a unique band...what else can I say.

Hail King  :king:

I think there are a lot of true hardcore KD fans. I´m so into KD that, I´m collecting every single release in all formats availables from the band. my daugther´s name is Abigail, I have a tribute KD band on which we try our best to give a show like the ones we have seen on some youtube videos.. and the list can go on... The point is that I think King is right... we are very loyal fans to his legacy... that is really cool and only if you are part of it you can understand why.

im the same way! im a huge KD and MF fan!! i have read like every KD interview,i even got a portrait tattoo of KD and MF,named my cat magic after his cat,when i get some kids i would like to name them abigail rose and melissa no joke,kd is like my biggest musical hero,i worship the dude,i even read the satanic bible cause of him and discovered the horror author james herbert because he said that is one of his fav authors! i wear my KD abigial shirt alot and always get atleast one person who really likes it and KD,so it is a true honor to be a part of the KD and MF family :king: and to talk to king would probally bring me to tears!!! :)

i think it's great to see people with the same passion for KD/MF all in one place, like you fans, KD has become a way of life for me, i can't go a day without playing one of his albums at least, even the albums i like least are still top quality albums and can match the best albums by any artist on earth, hero worship, absolutely and i have no shame doing it

i remember the very room and good friend as was with when i heard 'The Oath' for the first time, the album had been out about a year, it was the first time i had heard any evil related heavy metal and it blew my mind forever, that night remained a life changing moment, up along side the birth of my kids and every time i play DBTO i still get the same rush

I think as Scotlands only representative on these fine forums, that King really needs to give me a buzz, it's not the best excuse, but it's not to shabby either.

I've got the dictaphone next to me so I can record the whole experience, if it happens it will be a day I have waited for in nearly 25yrs...that's a long time, now technology has brought us all closer, speaking with King over the interet is just gonna rock like a mofo. I hope to satan i am in when the phone rings, i will be out tomorrow night, but i am going nowhere this weekend, in fact i am staying in every weekend i can until the call.

for me speaking to King would be like a die hard christian casually chatting with Jesus online, it's gonna be amazing and i am going to make the most of the privelage when/if it comes along

we both like WW1 & WW2 stuff & the occassional bit of classical music (Mozart & Handel being my top dogs), both dig metal, even though i am sceptic i have always been interested in the occult n related matters, so i could imagine getting on well with him... :king:

meant to add, i see he likes Fawlty Towers, excellent British comedy, i'm a big fan of  comedy as well, from Alan Partridge, The Office, Extra's, The Might Boosh, Peepshow, Operation Good Guys & Still Game...all UK comedies and well funny, so if u are reading this King or Livia, please pass on these suggestions to King, I'm sure he'll really dig em all

live and born in scotland man, I've been a total King fan for a bout 5 years now, I'm 20 so fairly young I guess, still yet to see the man himself LIVE but I'm determined it'll happen sooner or later

Pity there's not more love for the band here especially when metal is actually pretty popular here nowadays.

don't make the mistake i made bud, when he plays london, book your flight or train, get your hotel booked and go see a legend, it's eye opening, i was blown away when i first seen him live and will never miss another gig when he comes to the uk, make the most of it while you can because KD are not getting any younger

when KD comes to the UK me and my best bud will be going, if you don't have anyone else to go down with and u really wanna go, just get in touch and we can meet up in london or on the train ect, but whatever u do, don't miss the next KD gig mate, u never know when this legend may call it a day

FAO stefanbogi...what did u record the interview with? i'll do the same if king calls me,

the interview is great, he talks away about everything, it's refreshingly honest and makes me dig the band even more, the thought that there's gonna be little collectors items in future recordings means he's read posts by guys like me saying how valuable this would make buying official releases, it's great news indeed and makes complete sense,

the only way to tackle the mp3 technology is to make the merchandise more desireable & cheaper, more ltd edition stuff that only collectors can get their hands on and not just the casual listener, like the free downloadable videos that came with the remaster cd's, which is massacre's idea and does not help with sales in general and ultimately that is what is required if we are to keep the KD band alive for years to come

i'll feel much better getting more for my cash because i spend a fotrune on KD/MF, can't wait till the new videos come out as well, from what King was saying they are gonna kick ass, i get the feeling there are some exciting things coming our way judging by king's tone and what he was saying, he seems upbeat and just as passionate as ever...awesome

Well, I recored it with my web camera 'cause I didn't have some better way at the moment to do that, but I had very big problem to make mp3 from it 'cause file of 1h45min was about 40GB, and my hard disk was full, so i couldn't do anything with that file, even to open it!
later I made some space on HD so file started working and I made mp3 with Switch sound file converter, you can find it on net easily, it's very simple to work with, then I found program recordpad sound recorder, I think somebody here on Coven told me for it, but I didn't use it still for recording but you can try!

i like King's sense of humour and he filled in any awkward silences with cool stories, he must have sensed his fans were a bit lost for words, i know i would be, but after hearing him i think we'll get on great, has a sense of humour very much like my own and very similar interests as well, sounds like the kinda guy you would easily enjoy speaking with or being in his company

I spoke to Ole Bang about a Scotland show but he said it just wasn't feesable, I'll just have to hold my breath for an England show and I'll definitely be going down with a Scotland flag held high.

Got to talk with King last night, I about shit myself when I saw the "incoming call from King Diamon, Kim B. Petersen". It was so much fun to pick his brain and ask about things I have wondered about for so long. He is great to talk to and really a great guy for doing this. I'm defintly looking forward to what he has planned for the future. Have some good questions for him and you might be surprised at how long you get to speak with him!...........

Just a heads up:

Please make sure that when you are available to talk with King, your skype status shows you "online".

If you are set to "appear offline" or "away", I assume that you're not at your computer or are offline, so I won't call you.
I go by the statuses that show people online, and pick the lucky ones. :)

Cheers ^_^

It was cool, he talked about strange things that have happened while he was recording. The ghost slapping one of his friends on the back of his head was hilarious. Talked about his back, which is much better and he should be kicking ass on stage again. We talked about his guitar playing, he does much more in that regard than I though and it's definetly worth talking to him about. He talked about down loading music which is basicly not only screwing an artist financially but also much akin to rape for the artist. He is also a big supporter of law enforcement and the military, much thanks King! Oh and ask him about the Nazi boots! lol.............

I'm not really active at these boards, and just checked in for the first time in a very long time tonight and saw this thread. Really cool initiative I must say! Downloaded the file of the second interview, but the links to the first one were all dead - someone who got the file that may be able to upload it to megaupload or whatever? Would be very grateful if so. :)

In any case, I think I'll have to skip participating in this myself - I've attempted using skype in the past, and there seems to be some sort of problems with either my cheap headset or my soundcard because some clippy sounds are being made which ruin any conversation being held. In any case, and as I've already said, awesome idea! And some really interesting things seem to be in store for the future from what I gathered in this thread.

Since this thread is so big, and I don't know who reads the entire thing (technical advices included), here is the info again on a good VOIP recording software.
It's completely free, and easy to use:  http://callgraph.biz/

With this, you can record the conversation in its entirety, and in good quality.

Please state so in the beginning of the conversation with King if you're recording the call.

Had a really cool dream about KING that I wanted to share with all of you. I don't think I am able to do the Skype thing so I am putting it here. I dreamed I was at a KISS Konvention and someone was handking out KING DIAMOND Promo Posters for KING's new album coming out. The new album was called "Welcome To La La Land". It was a story about a man and a woman who suddenly wake up violently to find themselves in a world that is filled with horrorific things, mixed with beautiful things and so on. Anyway, they eventually discover that they are dead and that they are in Heaven AFTER Heaven has been overthrown by HELL.  :D, So that's it. My dream of the New King Diamond album .  :king:

There is no specific time of day, he makes the calls when he has time. :)
It might be during the day, or even at 1 am.
Coven members usually post here while they are talking to King, so checking this thread during Sunday might be a good idea. But this of course depends on whether the coven member posts at all. :)

-King will make several calls tomorrow, so he will talk to quite a few of you.
-I always try to invite 3 people to the conversation, so that's 4 people on the line at the same time, including King.
-King will try and keep the conversations to half an hour to an hour, so that he has a chance to talk to many of you.

Hope this helps a little :)

I really need to get a headset. Skype would help me stay connected to family and friends, and I think it would be great to at least have the means to speak with King if the opportunity arose. I really don't have any burning questions though, as so many things are (fortunately) clarified/noted here on the forum. Thank you to Livia for being a huge part of this clarification, and offering some fantastic art and cool tidbits of info not even related to KD/MF.
Anyway, point is I really wouldn't need to ask King anything specific. I'd end up just talking about things in life in a general sense. It's difficult because King is a character to me, and Kim is a real person. I feel I know about King through the music, and that suits me fine. Kim Petersen is someone who has his own personality, thoughts, feelings, etc. and I don't personally know him so I think it might be hard to converse with him. He seems to be a person who would be fun to bs with about everyday things, but I really think it's important for Kim to remain a "regular" person and keep his personal life a bit of a mystery.

In case anyone's waiting for a phone call and sitting besides their computers right now, King is in a call and when he's finished he will take a break, but will call some more people later on today.

No, problem with mic and mic port. This has been going on since the first time King started accepting calls.

I've been a fan since I was what 13, 14? I'm 39 now so ya... a long time. To have gotten a call from him is just unbelievably cool. To spend an hour and a half in a conversation that wasn't moderated is unreal. Like a campfire chat with an old friend!

Thanks King and Livia. King, you are a true gentleman and the real deal. I really appreciate the time you are taking to do this. I haven't felt this high since my last time skydiving!

Haha, this is a remote possibility but for fans who dont have mics, can there be a gmail chat or email communication possibility.

Title: Re: Skype with King
Post by: Aeon666 on June 06, 2010, 12:56:42 PM
Well I'm still in shock... That phone call was just amazing... I cannot believe that I have spoken with the King... That was a very friendly conversation... King answers everything we wanted, give us free space not just to talk but to bring our opinions and sugestions. I have not enough words to say thank you Livia, thank you King...

BTW I recorded the conversation... unfortunately my recording software works only for periods of 15 minutes so I have a lot of files, and at the end of the call my internet connection went off. But I have 70 minutes of the call recorded. I will compilate all the files and upload it as soon as possible for you to listen.

Thanks again.

Sorry, King is not going to do a writing chat.
It takes too long and it's not as nice as live talking.
King can't sit and type comfortably anyways, it's not good for his back.

So what kind of things did King talk about on this latest chat?

Well he told us that the legal issues are now pretty much to be ended and with this the release of the DVD is closer. He told us when he work at the Chemestry lab, the process for writing and album, his contributions with other bands. He announce that there are plans for a real Fan Club to get started, we listen to his comments about the Conspiracy banned cover, black metal, touring, the beginning of his carreer and about tribute bands... that's what I remember right now. LOL :) :cool: :cool: :cool:

Thanks for posting QueenDiamond666.  :king:

@ Azalin- I love the home phone call you got in the middle of the conversation and you were trying to explain who you were talking with. Priceless.

It's great you all got a chance to hear King speak about other topics and ideas, not just things we already get answers to here. It's nice to have a chance to understand the individual person behind the makeup so to speak, as you get an opportunity to reexamine your own beliefs/ ideas as you get another perspective on things. King obviously has put a lot of thought into his outlook on things (it's not some bullshit for marketing purposes like you'd get with some artists) and is very open to other ideas as part of a learning process. It was nice to hear people having a respectful conversation and sharing ideas, along with memories.

I want to say hail to my all time best vocalist. Listen the whole conversation and I personally live with that thing: be your own god, you don´t need another one. Not especially interested of LaVey or Crowley thoughts. Me and my best friend whom once introduced me to the world of King Diamond and Mercyful Fate are curious how King practice his voice and when we get the new album? If someone lucky can answer to this, I´m very satisfied.

Well and I am as well still sooo fucking high and thrilled and just totally freaking out happy about the call of King, the 6.6.2010 will always remain to be one of the best days of my life! It feels like my life has changed, gee, I still cannot believe it. Now only a live gig is missing, hehe..

Thank you for recording and fast posting it. I've recorded it too but having unregisterred  program I had bunch of 15 minutes files.

Yes dear, even with these damaged ears. I'm not sure if my hearing is just sharper due to my near legal blindness (that's fixed now) but I pick up these things. The hearing loss is due to racing, I don't always wear my ear plugs or race radio. And probably a little to do with all the concerts I went to when I was younger.

thanks for sharing the conversation that King had with some fans on skype.  Great strong stuff about the hypocrosy and crimes about religion and churches.  And some great stuff about his views on the Satanic Bible and his meeting with LaVey at the Church of Satan.  And how the King Diamond albums are so much more Satanic than the Mercyful Fate albums ever were despite what some people think. I also really liked what he had to say about Crowley. :)

all the years of playing guitar have taken a bit of a toll on my hearing, but luckily it's only a minor loss in several frequency ranges. it's really only become noticeable in recent years. I would imagine that auto racing can destroy anyone's hearing quite easily.

it's funny that I can be heard taking that call, because I set the headset aside and took several steps away from the computer.  :)

Great stuff.  I love hearing King talk about the many real life experiences he has had with the Supernatural. Love hearing about the night things went flying off of his Satanic Altar and the two occasions visitors were growled at by some unseen force in King's bathroom.  And Livia seeing the floating head outside of their Texas home.  And how when asked if King still used his Occult experiences and beliefs from real life into his songs and he said without hesitation "Very much so".

I bet his fireplace looks cool with all of the Gargoyles and Satanic goat skulls he said are on there :)

Interesting too King mentioned that his many experinces with these Satanic supernatural Forces were mostly good and that only a couple of times could it be seen as maybe malicious encounters.
Title: Re: Skype with King
Post by: prhill on August 09, 2010, 06:23:30 AM
One of the fans mentioned to King how he read an interview with him in a book, and I ASSUME the book he meant is "Lucifer Rising" where King had talked about how his supernatural Occult experiences lead him into Satanism which inspires his life and lyrics.  So the fan asked King if those beliefs and experiences are still a part of his songs and of course King said "Yes, as much as ever"!

anytime, the whole experience has been a total pleasure I'm more than happy to give any details about the call, it was great.

In case anyone else is interested he's a 'brief' sort've summary on various things we spoke about.

The first disc of the DVD (of a 3 disc set) is completely done - it's the Copenhagen 1990 show recorded 2 days after the completion of 'The Eye' album, pro-shot with 5 different cameras and features the early live debut of 'Eye Of The Witch'. He intends for the full DVD to be done and dusted and handed in to the label by the end of this year definitely. His back is a LOT better, having gone from agonising pain where he couldnt even sit to eat and because he wanted his back to heal naturally he never took any painkillers to ensure that his body would recover back to full or 99% health as opposed to having any surgeries etc which might end up leading to future troubles down the line....he's really intent on really REBOOTING the KING DIAMOND  name as a brand and setting up an OFFICIAL fanclub as opposed to just a forum, and specifically he wants to try and make sure that the fans get high quality merch and other KD goodies as opposed to the bootleg t-shirts and other shit out there which really frustrates him... at the moment he's really focused on making sure these dvds get out there and he talked about touring and the fact he really wanted to play AT THE GRAVES live again, how he's really content and happy with the lineup of the band now and feels that all of the songs sound better now than they ever have before and that the atmosphere between the band members is the best he's ever experienced. He talked about some of his experiences with the occult and how his beliefs regarding satanism and his experiences are still very much intact and as prominent in his lyrics as ever was

A guy from the US asked does he still have experiences with the occult He told a story about how the guys from Metallica (James and Lars) were over in his apartment with Kim Ruzz and a few girlfriends and they were drinkin - King, James and Lars went into the other room to play a game of foosball or something and King  heard a loud CRASHING noise and he'd assumed it was Kim falling over drunk and he shouted "Kim, what the hell are you doing?!" walked out of the room and the girls were as white as a sheet and EVERYTHING from the table was scattered to the floor

another time where a girl had stayed over she went to use the toilet and was away for an unusually long amount of time so King went to see if she was okay and found her screaming and crying in the bathroom, saying something was snarling and growling at her, right up in her face, some spirit, and she couldn't get out of the bathroom...

Another time where it was late and night and he was sleeping awoken by a loud crash and he assumed it was someone that had broken in, he grabbed his gun and began 'strategically clearing each room' only to find nothing except everything knocked off his high mantle..

He also asked is his encounters with spirits/satanism etc still present/relevant in his lyrics nowadays and he replied "Absolutely, more than ever" and went on to explain references in 'To One Far Away', as well as the rising teacups in "Them" as well as the meaning behind the wolf in House Of God and how he was given a baby wolf cub (called Angel) to tend for, for a few weeks and that's what the song 'Goodbye' is about on House Of God

Regarding touring he said he's really itching to get out on the road and play some of the new stuff and some of the old stuff he hasn't played in many many years, particularly 'At The Graves' his back is a LOT better now and a LOT better than when he played on stage with Metallica in 2008 but he couldn't say specifically when a new tour would be or whether this would be BEFORE they finished a new album or after. Sorry.

Actually, when we heard that incredibly loud crash, and we looked everywhere (including the attic and around the house), absolutely nothing was out of place, but it sounded like as if everything we have over the fireplace had crashed down onto the tiles.
And that's where the boots were standing, and are still there.

Afraid you would blast your foot of eh ? (joking  :gah:) I do own a handgun and I hope I never have to use it. Once its put into play its kill or be killed no going back especially if the other person has a gun. That is something I dont even really wanna think about.

Here in Costa Rica things are a little bit ugly... to much crime and corruption... everyday you hear in the news that a boy was killed for an ipod or things like that. There are some places you have to avoid to visit... but as fas as I know the rest of central america is worst.. We don´t have an army so we depend on cops to help us out and they are not the best ones in the world.

That´s one of the reasons I always wanted to see those scandinavian black metalers that think they are very bad in one of our really shity holes, sorrounded by "Maras"... I wonder if they keep staying that evil look.. or just run for mommy. hua hua hua... No offense to anyone of course... just a comment.

Yep, and to me it is sometimes hard to understand some of the extremely (by our standards) liberal gun laws in some states. I think it might have been in Texas or Florida, where cardrivers tended to end up in fistfights because of so-called roadrage  due to long ques and traffick jams and whatnot. The "solution" was to allow handguns in the cars, so a driver could defend himself  :gah: If you are so pissed off in the first place that you punch people. throwing guns into the mix might just not be the solution  :gah:

People shouldn't go on a rampage even if there wasn't a gun. It shouldn't be necessary if you ask me. I think people should try to calm down and not just go crazy, i know you can get pissed of but man people need to relax more in todays society if you ask me :P

Well a few years ago a woman was stabbed in the chest on their doorstep. It was in the building across the street from mine. It was very random and Mexican gang related I think. Now mind you that stuff never really happens in the town I live in. Then like 4 months ago some asian guy got stabbed in the neck down the street from my girlfriend. The guy died and it was all over the local papers.

Damn! I now do understand why you have a gun. I wouldn't get one here in Denmark if those things happened but i know why you got one. I bet you if you moved to England as you once mentioned, you wouldn't need the gun either. But man that story is sick, sick guys and from gangs. I must admit i have always hated gangs.

I never saw the reasons. However i do believe and know for a fact that not all people are alike in the US. That's my experiences talking with you guys on here.

It's especially sick that it's in New Jersey :P Don't New Jersey kinda have a reputation for being quiet and sometimes even boring?

Yeah I kinda wish the England thing worked out  :'( Some parts of NJ are very, very brutal and loaded with gangs and other parts are really quiet and nice.

I never saw the reasons. However i do believe and know for a fact that not all people are alike in the US. That's my experiences talking with you guys on here. It's a few people that are idiots compared to how many people that actually live in the states. And most of them are probably not that insane :P

Well for me it seems like everything is go, go , go over here. Everything is a rush and nobody has any patience or they have horrible attitudes. I am in no way saying all of america is like that though.

From what i have heard from Simon (UnnamedOne) Is Sweden becoming a society where you're being watched. He has talked about that alot, and i wouldn't say we're to far from Finland but i do believe they have a very very high suicide rate in that country.

Well the pay was good but the cost of me moving across the pond was really more than I could afford. The company was going to give me some money for relocation and all that but it was not enough.

Yep. The best you can do is stay out of trouble, be a good human being and enjoy life because you never know when it could be taken away.I think people in general need to relax more too much work related stress.

anytime, the whole experience has been a total pleasure I'm more than happy to give any details about the call, it was great.

In case anyone else is interested he's a 'brief' sort've summary on various things we spoke about.

The first disc of the DVD (of a 3 disc set) is completely done - it's the Copenhagen 1990 show recorded 2 days after the completion of 'The Eye' album, pro-shot with 5 different cameras and features the early live debut of 'Eye Of The Witch'. He intends for the full DVD to be done and dusted and handed in to the label by the end of this year definitely. His back is a LOT better, having gone from agonising pain where he couldnt even sit to eat and because he wanted his back to heal naturally he never took any painkillers to ensure that his body would recover back to full or 99% health as opposed to having any surgeries etc which might end up leading to future troubles down the line....he's really intent on really REBOOTING the KING DIAMOND  name as a brand and setting up an OFFICIAL fanclub as opposed to just a forum, and specifically he wants to try and make sure that the fans get high quality merch and other KD goodies as opposed to the bootleg t-shirts and other shit out there which really frustrates him... at the moment he's really focused on making sure these dvds get out there and he talked about touring and the fact he really wanted to play AT THE GRAVES live again, how he's really content and happy with the lineup of the band now and feels that all of the songs sound better now than they ever have before and that the atmosphere between the band members is the best he's ever experienced. He talked about some of his experiences with the occult and how his beliefs regarding satanism and his experiences are still very much intact and as prominent in his lyrics as ever was

Regarding touring he said he's really itching to get out on the road and play some of the new stuff and some of the old stuff he hasn't played in many many years, particularly 'At The Graves' his back is a LOT better now and a LOT better than when he played on stage with Metallica in 2008 but he couldn't say specifically when a new tour would be or whether this would be BEFORE they finished a new album or after. Sorry.


Great info thankx, but there are some new about MF?

Sorry.  I thought I'd written about Mercyful Fate...regarding Mercyful Fate he said he'd LOVE to do another album/reunion tour but it was VERY dependant on whether the right business deal came about and at the right time for all people involved because as far as he's concerned King Diamond is absolutely first in his mind before anything else.  Also, if it was to happen - It would probably be with the current lineup of Mercyful Fate the '9' lineup and not the 'original' or anything like that because those guys have other comitments other than music (family/jobs etc) and so it wouldn't be feesable to create a tour based around what time they might be able to get free (2 weeks max or whatever) so it would definitely be with the guys who played on '9'.   

In short - Yes he'd like to do it, but it's not likely to occur anytime soon as King Diamond is very much in his sights both musically and as a business.  There are lots of things in the pipeline regarding King Diamond.

He also asked is his encounters with spirits/satanism etc still present/relevant in his lyrics nowadays and he replied "Absolutely, more than ever" and went on to explain references in 'To One Far Away', as well as the rising teacups  

He also mentioned how that experience with the rising glass was in the song "Welcome Princess of Hell" a song in which he welcomed the Powers and Spirits into his life.

You're right. I guess we have the highest suicide rates here in Finland.
That's why we have these great suicide romanticizing bands like Sentenced. :gah: ::)

Our society isn't that bad but it's true that generally we Finnish stress too much and the society wants us to work like maniacs. Then comes the depression, very cold weather (long long winter), divorces, self-pity, booze... and finally might be the suicide.

Hell yeah!
There was a rumor that King would play at the Rock Hard Festival in Germany this year....unfortunately it didn´t happen.
But in October there was a KD/MF-coverstory in the german Metal Hammer, which rearly happens since this mag is quite mainstream. But this story was good, i have to admit. They visited King for 2 days at his home in Friso (why haven´t I been there??????????????!!) and interviewed him for many hours. They will also put this interview out on DVD. Plus in the next issues they will publish the interview - as always King had lot´s to say.

So let´s hope all this has a reason...

So “Stop” it is? That doesn’t sound like something I agree with. Sorry. I am not spreading rumors, adding gossip or hurting anybody’s career. I am making observations that hang unanswered in the air.

I think people in general mistake points me and others have made in here for some sort of hate-mongering. King Diamond is, and will always be, my absolute favorite band, and as a long time die-hard fan I have very strong opinions on everything that pertains to the music, the lyrics, the management and everything else.

I believe in the individual's right to express his opinion and nothing pisses me off more than blindly subscribing to everything an artist says or does. Without constructive criticism there is no area of opportunity in which to expand and move forward. I always strive to be the absolute best I can be, in anything that I pursue, so if soliciting advice or creative input from outside sources is sometimes required to expand my horizons and put on a different colored thinking cap, then so be it. People who only listen to their own counsel are either absolute geniuses or fucking idiots. Geniuses are rare, idiots are not.

I don't have Skype so I can't have this discussion with King himself, and I doubt it would make a difference. I was a musician for many years, then worked in the music business, and now I am just a Joe Schmoe business man working for my family, but through all the years I have picked up a few things about what spells success and what doesn't. Surrounding yourself with talented people who 100% commit to your vision but still have the balls to tell you when you're wrong is an absolute requirement. Not only when you’re wrong, but also when you are almost right, to coax that last piece of the puzzle out of you. That is why even huge experienced bands and artists like Maiden, David Bowie, Bon Jovi or U2 hire a producer to chief over the recordings, to bring that unbiased outside perspective. Even smaller bands like Arch Enemy, Opeth and Dream Theater know this is the way to go. I think King would benefit greatly from loosening the reins a little and bring on Andy Sneap, Fredrik Nordstrom or some other demon producer to lord over the next album. Also, why not call a band camp BEFORE the songs are written this time around? All the best KD albums were always written and arranged as a band, so why is that option not there anymore? Geography is a lame excuse and I have a feeling there is a lot of untapped potential in Mike, Hal and Matt that could be brought out if they felt they were a part of the creative process from the beginning, rather than added as an afterthought when it’s time to rehearse and record the finished product. Andy is already pulling his weight, but is his heart in it the same it used to be? Maybe he needs a shot of adrenaline as well?

You can’t make a business out of creativity and art, or you will lose touch with your passion, but that is why you hire people to take care of all that for you. Who, at this point, is the steward of King’s career? Himself? His manager? Metal Blade Records? There is a breakdown somewhere and it needs to be fixed by King, and only King himself. If he doesn’t, then the band King Diamond will forever just be a quirky hobby that merely passes for an interesting footnote in the current history of metal as it is being written by more productive bands, and I, for one, think his music deserves a hell of a lot more than that. On a whole, it is heads and shoulders above the rest of the metal community on an average.

If you allow yourself as an artist to live on glories past, fine – King has deserved it, but then don’t act surprised when your current fan base dwindles to nothingness as there is NOTHING to keep the casual fan interested. Us die hard fans will be here to the end, but that is not where you make your money. We’re just the bread and butter of King’s career. He has to reach more people, and more often. He has to throw his name in the hat every chance he gets.

I don’t understand why anybody (you guys, King himself, or the band) would take offense to people being concerned about his career? Isn’t it in all our interest that he has a long and prosperous career that can afford him to be as creative as he chooses to be and at the same time being rewarded for his hard work and musical exceptionality?

Being a loyal fan is necessary, going to the shows and buying the records is a must, but just blindly cheering on is counter-productive and only serves to solidify the non-prosperous and barren status quo in the King Diamond camp.

I wish everybody all the best with their upcoming conversations with King, and I think it is an amazing initiative by him to get closer to his fans, but I don’t think we are the problem. I do however think King has so much more to offer the world of music than what is currently being put on the table. I think, and always did, that his best album is yet to come. And THAT is why I will always be a real fan.

Respectfully,

Grace


Absolutly the best writing ever on this forum,hands down.

If you allow yourself as an artist to live on glories past, fine – King has deserved it, but then don’t act surprised when your current fan base dwindles to nothingness as there is NOTHING to keep the casual fan interested. Us die hard fans will be here to the end, but that is not where you make your money. We’re just the bread and butter of King’s career. He has to reach more people, and more often. He has to throw his name in the hat every chance he gets.

I don’t understand why anybody (you guys, King himself, or the band) would take offense to people being concerned about his career? Isn’t it in all our interest that he has a long and prosperous career that can afford him to be as creative as he chooses to be and at the same time being rewarded for his hard work and musical exceptionality?

Being a loyal fan is necessary, going to the shows and buying the records is a must, but just blindly cheering on is counter-productive and only serves to solidify the non-prosperous and barren status quo in the King Diamond camp.

I wish everybody all the best with their upcoming conversations with King, and I think it is an amazing initiative by him to get closer to his fans, but I don’t think we are the problem. I do however think King has so much more to offer the world of music than what is currently being put on the table. I think, and always did, that his best album is yet to come. And THAT is why I will always be a real fan.

Respectfully,

Grace
It couldn't be better said than this. Thanks!

In fact, the two main reasons why I no longer come around here it's because, one, there's no music-related news from the MF/KD camp since ever; and two, because you no longer see here posts of the Grace's kind.

So, again, thanks Grace! Intelligent people are certainly a rarity --"Amazing Grace" any? :)

No offense, but I'm at a loss to explain why so many are applauding Grace's post.
"You can't make a business out of creativity and art, or you will lose touch with your passion..."?
That's an industry spoke person's view, a manger's view, a rationalization for their existence and their sizable fee.
"Geniuses are rare, idiots are not."
And who decides an artist is a genius, or an idiot?
Is there there an intelligence yardstick for art? Or are we simply discussing business acumen again?

You might either share or not some of her opinions, but to me it's clear that KD and MF do need an external catalyzer to go out from their comfort zone. It's a fact they're stalling, and not only from a marketing point of view.

Ok, if King is economically free at this point and doesn't need to work, I'm very happy for him as an individual. But as a fan, I'm far from being happy.

Where are the so-many-times-promised-and-never-released KD and MF DVD's? Why bands such as Immortal, Emperor, Amon Amarth, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Nevermore and whoever else has conquered a little place in the metal world do have quality DVD's released, while KD and MF don't? How come Hank Shermann manages to film a DVD of Force of Evil, and it can't be done for neither MF or KD?

Also, who f@#$% needs shoes with MF and KD pics? C'mon! Ok, merchandising is great for some people, but music-related products go first in my books. Everything else are byproducts. In this case, those shoes are byproducts of what? Of supposedly-active bands whose best music was released decades ago? I share this point of view of Grace: I still want to believe the best release is yet to come!

And also, how come MF gets a lot of visibility through Guitar Hero Metallica and there was no label, managing agency or whatever-marketing-or-career-management-entity-be doing a big deal out of it? Because the timing was perfect to hype MF in the specialized press and to release new material, including a DVD, as well as a compilation of rarities on CD --instead of the pitiful limited vinyl they released with the two re-recorded songs.

Finally, what Grace wrote about fanboys blindly praising King and being unconditional to him here is very true. One would say that every time King farts or does whatever, be it either banal or not, all the cheering doggies here shake their tails and applaud. I say, screw that shit! Man, I got a brain too, a big ego and a bigger mouth. I do love King's music, but to me there's no god, and even less a human being who will give a sense to my life. I am an alpha male, I'm opinionated, I'll always be and nobody (King included) rules my life. So, I think we all have the right to say what we think, and if some of us think the KD/MF camp is slacking, I think we have the right to say so.

PS: No offense to anyone, ok? I'm just being intense because I'm metal, but I'm a nice guy, really... :)

^I have to say that I agree with you Zorro and Grace on alot of your points and as long as it didnt mean going commercial or destroying the integrity that is these two awsome bands/ entities , I to would like to see more involvement from positive outside influences and I too believe there are certain things that could and should be different here . I dont feel I have a place to say what one should do/not do but to me , both of MF/KD are huge and talented in what they do and deserve to be taken more seriously for the artists that they are without trying to jump into the mainstream . I do have to agree with King in that if he is comfortable in where he is with the buisness of what he does , its not up to any of use to question that .( comment or make suggestions.... ok ) But it seems we are kind of being  led by the carrot so to speak in anticipation of the DVD'S and new information as to were both entities stand in regards of future endevors. King is going thru mortality recognition and I wish the best for him and I do believe that there still are good things in the future . the waiting just drives alot of fans crazy and I for one would certainly like to be less in the dark about all these things. :king:

I prefer not to quote entire, lengthy posts, but yours is so long it's difficult to get around it.
I'm not going to open with a apologia, that will have to wait.
What I've been reading on this topic's page (I haven't the time to go further back) is a sort of hopeless idealism.
If fans feel their criticisms are unappreciated, get used to it. It's the artist's decision, not theirs.
If fans are dissatisfied with the direction King et al have been taking, listen to something else. Sorted.
If people are put off by so called "fan boys", grow up. It takes all types to make a world, and an open forum.
And at risk of redundancy, I hope I haven't offended anyone either. :)

I can live without it, don't worry. :)

You may qualify people's opinions as you wish. I have no expectation in my case, so that's certainly hopeless; but at the same time, MF/KD facts speak for themselves, so I'd rather tag my opinion as "hopeless realism". :)

If fans feel their criticisms are unappreciated, get used to it. It's the artist's decision, not theirs.
Equally, if fans decide to criticize (and they are free of doing so), it's not the artist's decision. It's the fans'. The artist should then get used to it as well --it goes both directions, right?

If fans are dissatisfied with the direction King et al have been taking, listen to something else. Sorted.
Do you think those who keep criticizing don't listen to something else? :)

If people are put off by so called "fan boys", grow up. It takes all types to make a world, and an open forum.
It certainly takes all types, which includes those who think it's the fan boys who should grow up, and so on... It's an open forum, as you say.

And at risk of redundancy, I hope I haven't offended anyone either. :)
I call that "hopeless idealism", but peace anyway, bro. Let's get a life, both of us! :)

C'ya'round! :)
