Title: UPDATE - July 8th, 2011 - Skype
Post by: King Diamond on July 08, 2011, 12:03:36 PM
Hail to all of you

I know it is high time for a news update.
Have your computers turned on during the weekend of July 16-17, we will be doing one of our Skype sessions!
If you're not signed up at this point, you can add skype name: kingdiamond-kimbpetersen to your contacts.
Please make sure your status shows you as "Online", otherwise I can't attempt to call you.
To those of you I catch, feel free to record the conversation, and post it later.

I really look forward to talk to you again.

Stay Heavy,

King.

Wow, so wierd. Just yesterday I was thinking about unistalling Skype, since the only reason I have it in the first place, was for a chance to speak with KingFuckingDiamond! It must be "Fate" that I didn't uinstall it, so you must call me this time around!  :king: \m/ :king:

Great to hear from you again, hope everything is better than expected.

For those who might receive a call and don't know how to record it:
1. With help of Pamela - program for skype (http://www.pamela.biz/en/download/)
2. Via your sound card (use stereo mix option in your audio card settings and then all sounds on your PC become recordable, launch any of sound programs and press record button)

I didn't own a webcam last time King was doing skype calls. I don't believe any of those calls were video calls....I think they were all voice-only, as I suspect these upcoming ones will be.

My usual icebreaker to everyone is "What did you have for dinner last night?" It ain't much, but I can't tell you the amount of success I've reaped from the question. Than again, we're not just talking about anyone, we're talking about the legend King Diamond himself!  \m/ :king:

I guess that the "sound recorder" on my computer can record the call. I just ran a test and its working but not sure it will record the call or how long it will record for since I never used it.

It seems that it's only recording through the mic. Not sure what a sound card is. I can't find it. I got Realtek HD Audio Manager but I don't know how to set it.  :-[
Any ideas

Any ideas
1. Double click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your desktop
2. Press 'Settings' and choose 'properties'
3. In front of mixer select Realtek HD Audio INPUT
4. Put flags in front of all volume regulators
Then you will only need to make sure that Stereo mix is selected (marked). Start any Audio program and experiment with record level

This way you can record any sound appearing on your PC and its duration will depend on capacity of your hard drive :D

Double chick that icon just has a volume level. No "Settings or properties". Volume mixer for speakers and one for Windows Sounds and itunes are all full blast. I may have to go through the control panel.
 
I can't find any input for realtek or any volume regulators.

Whoever the first person is to talk to him is, ask him how he is doing, and post what he says here. I'm sure King will get tired of people asking that same question, so if nobody has posted it, please post it!

I remember it as if where a meal ago. I had found a good book so i could read most of the night. Then i saw they had written on here that we should write our user name. I did that and got a call  immidiatly. The funniest thing is (and sorry if i am bragging now) King knew who i was at least by my name, i guess Livia might have mentioned that she wrote with me when we played Guild Wars. It was all cool and we talked about the book where my parrents got my name from. That was a great night, and i shared it with Maidenjersey, King and one other guy i couldn't identifyt.

For me, it was night just after a thunderstorm. Something about that just seemed really fitting. I'm listening to music and all of a sudden, I get the call so I shut the music off and answered.

I couldn't say who they were, if they were forum members or not (my memory can be kinda shot sometimes) but I'm sure it was quite an experience for them as well.

First of all I'm still thrilled of the fact that I got a chance to talk with King Diamond himself. Thank you man - you are the best of the best! I will never forget that conversation. I would also like to apologize from Jade and Gabriel (and King as well) that I interrupted some of your questions or speaking parts. I wasn't meant to do that, but to be honest I was so nervous to talk with King himself. Before the conversation I thought I could be just fine. When the call came I was so nervous that I almost shit my pants. You can hear my nervousness when you listen to my poor English. I don't usually speak that bad English but now I pronounced the words so poor that I'm a bit ashamed of my pronouncing (it was nail-biting to try to speak English when there was native English speaker on conversation and I even tried to speak with Brittish accent). :-[ However, instead of my poor English I had a great time. I asked all the questions I was meant to ask - maybe I forgot to ask something because I was so nervous. The conversation did last about 1 hour and 40 minutes. I guess Jade kept on talking private with King after that. Hope we will here that conversation later as well.

You will soon hear some great news when the conversation will be uploaded. At least I can say that all the info King gave us made my day. I'm so happy - if I die now I die with a smile on my face. You will be sure of that. Huge thanks also to Livia for letting me the opportunity to talk with King. You rule!


I will work on converting, fixing up, and uploading the recorded chat session as time allows.
I might not be able to do it today, given that we're a bit behind schedule, but it should definitely be available to listen to tomorrow. :)
That's great to hear. I was worried because I faced some problems and failed recording the stuff. I wrote down most of the things we talked. As I might be journalist in the future I tried to practice my writing skills while talking. It was difficult and that's why I was even more nervous. Imagine: talk with King and write down what he says. It's not easy when you're a die hard fan like me. I have also had some allergy during the Summer and I wondered if my voice is going to last the whole conversation but fortunately it did last quite well.

WOW , so many technicalities  :gah: I'm just hoping for some good news of Kings recovery and also things like what he has been up too ( besides recovery) these past months . I'm sure Lasse will get some good info as he is practically a writer / interviewer locally in his home land. Go Lasse ! Get the skinny on all things King , cant wait to know all !

You will get some very good news my friend. I promise. Well, don't put too much expectations on me. You will be disappointed if you wait too much. I have never interviewed anyone in English and imagine that the first person you interview is your biggest idol. It was hard situation but I survived and had some great time with King, Jade and Gabriel. I have to say these conversations are a great way to strenghten up the relationship between the fans and the band. :P

Wow, my earphones just gave me an electric shock. This whole "sitting around, waiting in hopes of a call"-thing is getting pretty hardcore!   :D:

You will get some very good news my friend. I promise. Well, don't put too much expectations on me. You will be disappointed if you wait too much. I have never interviewed anyone in English and imagine that the first person you interview is your biggest idol. It was hard situation but I survived and had some great time with King, Jade and Gabriel. I have to say these conversations are a great way to strenghten up the relationship between the fans and the band. Tongue
Please jus tell us something new about King, "I'm burning inside to know"  :king:

Yeah, that'd be incredible, but honestly, just hearing all the recorded calls, with all the news and such, will be more than enough for me.

Also, now my ear is all itchy from the shock!  :D

Yeah, I never ever thought I could have a chance to talk with King. I was very happy to have a chance to listen to the calls made by others before me. I have them all in my collection. I hope you will hear the recorded call soon. Until then you can read the small update I just wrote. :)

Please jus tell us something new about King, "I'm burning inside to know"  :king:
Well, I can tell you something. You will here more soon when the conversation will be posted here:

The most important thing is that King is feeling a lot lot better as he said. He gave credit to the super doctors. He is getting better, eats more fish and is on diet. He is walking 1,5 miles three times a week. He has practiced a lot. King promised to sing even better live vocals than before. He is physically in a much better state; his back is also healing.

He will be back on touring any time again. He sounded very confident to be back on stage as soon as possible. But first he is going to finish the DVD's - he will work with the DVD's during Autumn. The next tour might be a tour for GMYSP album or tour with other kind of set list - it hasn't been decided yet. It could be set list with some of the new songs and  also some classics. Also some rarities can be heard. King is still willing to perform At the Graves but he also said that he would like to play Give Me Your Soul and Shapes of Black on tour. But nothing has been decided yet. It depends on his and his bands mood what they are going to play. Also he didn't know if the US tour or European Tour is going to be the next.

When we asked that is there going to be The Puppet Master type of bonus DVD where King tells the story of the album he said that he has had conversation with Brian Slagel of the topic. It's possible that we will have the bonus DVD with King telling the album story once again. It would be awesome in my opinion. The upcoming album is going to be very heavy, we can hear all the things he has gone through from that album put to the music. It's going to be something very special. Andy has also asked King's if he has any new ideas for new songs or concept and King told he have had plenty of ideas which he didn't told us yet.

Then we talked something of soccer, something of other rock/metal bands which King is a fan of, something stuff related to LaVeyan satanism, something of how to hit the high notes etc. :P

EDIT: Brian Slater is changed to the right form as his name is Brian Slagel. Sorry for that typo.

Well, it wasn't that specific this time. He just told us the basic that he is still one million % satanist. Told how he had met LaVey, been in to a ritual chamber etc. Nothing new in that matter but it was still cool to hear him talking about these things even I had heard same kinds of stories before from him. I had a chance to tell King that I have read The Satanic Bible (I have read it in English and in Finnish to be honest) even I'm not sure if I'm considering myself a satanist. Partially yes, partially not. However, basically I enjoy more reading The Satanic Bible than the Bible. Both have their goods and bads. I wouldn't say I'm satanist but I'm not religious believer either. I'm still searching and wondering things but I live my life quite close to what's called LaVeyan satanism.

Thank you my friend. :) Don't be too nervous of the possible call. I'm sure King will understood your English as he understood what I was saying. I'm sure he's not judging you of your mistakes as he has high respect towards his fans. The most important thing is what you talk with him not how great English you're speaking at. It's enough that you're die hard fan because without us, fans, the band wouldn't exist. I wish you all the best and all the luck. I do hope from the bottom of my heart that you will get a chance for a nice conversation with King.
And let's hope he isn't calling you at the same time when Brazil is playing against Paraguay. :gah:

Maybe I'm too critical towards my English. In Finland the English teaching is so demanding. The teachers don't let us do mistakes and then it leads to a situation that we don't dare to speak English as we are afraid of the mistakes. I made a lot of mistakes during the call - even used wrong words - in the conversation but I'm happy that I tried and it was great that King understood the poor English I was talking to. But if I would talk only with you guys without my biggest idol on the line I wouldn't be be so nervous and my English would be much better. I know how to pronounce the most of the words I pronounced poorly but for some reason I still used the Finnish F1/Rally English I'm not so fond of myself. :P

Btw, I even said at the end of the conversation that "I have had so great questions...". Of course I meant great answers. I wasn't trying to brag of how good my questions were because I haven't had the best possible question. King's answers were awesome, he could talk the all day and I could just sit and listen to him. That's why I want all of the recorded conversations that are possible to get. Don't judge me if I interrupted some of King's talks in our conversation, I feel embarrassed of it. Fortunately we got a lot of cool information from the master himself. During the next conversations we will surely have even more out of King.

Americans, South Americans and anyone who is talking with King after the first conversations: if possible, try to ask some different questions than we asked. Then we could have a lot more new stories from the mighty King. Write at least some of the question down so you won't forget them. Personally I forgot some possible good questions that I haven't wrote down for some stupid reason. Everything I had wrote down I asked even some of the questions were totally silly and unrelevant.

@Hammer:  Great Thanks I hope to hear it soon!    I was actually brought up christian myself in many ways but the Satanic Bible changed all that.  And I have King Diamond to thank in fact for opening up the Satanic way of life to me in his lyrics and interviews!  So I am not surprised he still is a Satanist 100 percent.  But was there ever any doubt :)

Actually it is funny  I read an interview where King said that some of the witches at the Church of Satan seemed a little upset that King got to go into Anton LaVey's Ritual Chamber and they couldn't as it had been sealed off for a couple of years re-energizing itself.  Only Anton had been in there and then King was the only other exception and how incredible it was in there.  I guess it was much bigger than the Satanic Altar that King has in his home.

You're welcome. I have never been religious myself as my parents aren't that interested in religion - they are so called "Christians". They are/were simply Christians because almost everyone in Finland are in name only. But mostly we Finns aren't religious people - most people don't want to sit in the church here. Some of my relatives are very religious though. Personally I have been interested in of reading about different religions but I have never been able to believe in any religious stuff. Maybe some day I will or maybe not. I'm more into The Satanic Bible but I don't consider myself a satanist even in a way I could be one. In my life I follow up some good things I have found from The Satanic Bible, some good things I have found from Christian Bible and some good things I have learned from somewhere else (from books, from life-itself, heard from my friends, seen with my own eyes etc.). It's like my own "belief system" :P

I like to listen to the stuff that King is talking of his satanic beliefs and everything he has experienced with the dark powers. I'm very into that stuff to be honest. And I think there might be some powers, not sure of what they are. I have experienced something but I will talk to those things later.

But I never believed any of it.  Anyway I too have had some experiences with these Dark Powers as well.  Quite a few in fact.  SO I love when King talks about it and includes some of it in his lyrics.  And the way he talks about his Satanic Beliefs in an intelligent way is what made me go and buy the Satanic Bible so I owe him for that!

But I never believed any of it.  Anyway I too have had some experiences with these Dark Powers as well.  Quite a few in fact.  SO I love when King talks about it and includes some of it in his lyrics.  And the way he talks about his Satanic Beliefs in an intelligent way is what made me go and buy the Satanic Bible so I owe him for that!
Okay, I got the point. When I turned 18 I decided to get rid of the Christian Church. It was the age when it was possible to do it by yourself in Finland. The funny thing is that I did it with my mom who also wanted to leave the retirement papers. So we went there to our parish hall and simply did it. It was also my name day, Lasse's day in Finnish calendar. It was a cool way to celebrate that day. Then we bought some great food with my mother after the "retirement". During the evening I was totally boozed up with my friends. I never forgot that day and the scaried expression on the lady's face who received the resignment papers. I guess I was wearing King Diamond or Iron Maiden shirt - can't remember for sure.

King has already included some of his experiences with dark forces to his lyrics. I would give you many examples but I'm too tired to do that as it's 2 AM in Finland and I'm very very tired. At least Mercyful Fate songs like Lady in Black and Angel of Light are that stuff. But I will write something of my expressions with the dark powers later - I'm not sure what powers they were but anyway those little experiences are maybe worth sharing for some day.

I guess he hasn't spoke to anyone yet. If I'm right he will make the next Europe/Asia/Australia call the next. Not sure about the schedule anymore though.

Try to think some new question my friend and write them down. Just in case you have a chance to talk with him. One of my teachers has told me when I was at school that there are no stupid questions but there could be stupid answers. It's encouraging when you think of what you would like to ask. I even asked what's King's favourite beer and he had a good laugh of the silly question. :P

But now I'm going to sleep. Good luck everyone - hope some of you will get the call when I'm dreaming.

Cool I look forward to it.  And yes I actually know quite a few of the experiences that King has had with these powers and which one's are in which songs and stuff.  At least a lot of them maybe not all though.  I love the times he said he has had to prove it to others like that girl one time that these powers are real.

Hey Livia, I'm from San Antonio. Just want to let you and the King know that there was a question asked on the first conversation where one of the guys asked King Diamond about meeting Rob Halford.  King mentions an old DJ from one of our radiostations that has since long passed.  In the conversation King mentions that this DJ gave him a ring.  Well the DJ's name is Joe "The Godfather" Anthony.  He was a well known and respected DJ for introducing many underground bands to San Antonio. In other words he introduced a lot of bands who never got radio airplay and King Diamond was one of them. He also got many of those bands to play here in San Antonio. Budgie was one of those bands as well and I can go all day and name the many bands by anyway my uncle was a good friend of Joe Anthony and told me a story of one time when Joe Anthony was going to interview King Diamond on radio and allowed my uncle to speak to King Diamond on the phone before he interviewed him on air. This must have been in the late 80's if i recall. He always spoke well of King Diamond and played his songs many times on the air.  He would spread the word about King Diamond to any bands he spoke to and possibly anyone he called. He was such a fan. He gave my uncle his first King Diamond vinyls and has been a fan since.  

This might be irrelevant but it is a well known rumor that Rob Halford and Joe Anthony were reallly reallly good friends lol.

Yeah, as you are very nervous you might interrupt without meaning it. Personally I tried to be not interrupting King and if I did I let him finnish his talking of the on going subject. I want to apologize if I interrupted some interesting discussions - I didn't want to do that. During the beginning of the conversation it felt like we all were talking almost at the same time. When there was a tiny silent moment we all started to talk. It was hilarious yet at times depressive when someone interrupted the master himself.

Gabriel - if you are a Coven member and see this post I wanna apologize that I interrupted you at times but I guess you interrupted some of my questions as well (we were both so nervous I guess) :gah: By the way, did I heard correct that your surname is Finnish and meaning same thing as Swedish word qvist? If so, it's a strange coindicidence as my surname is Swedish and it is Lindqvist. :P

Thanks for this cool story of "The Godfather". I'll have to save your post to my KD archive as it is very interesting stuff indeed. I was the guy who asked of the connections between King and Rob. As a huge fan of Rob's vocals and Judas Priest I had to do that.

To make it short that was the main content of the conversation. :)

Here's some more I wrote after the conversation (hope you understand something - my English isn't the best you can imagine):

The most important thing is that King is feeling a lot lot better as he said. He gave credit to the super doctors. He is getting better, eats more fish and is on diet. He is walking 1,5 miles three times a week. He has practiced a lot. King promised to sing even better live vocals than before. He is physically in a much better state; his back is also healing.

He will be back on touring any time again. He sounded very confident to be back on stage as soon as possible. But first he is going to finish the DVD's - he will work with the DVD's during Autumn. The next tour might be a tour for GMYSP album or tour with other kind of set list - it hasn't been decided yet. It could be set list with some of the new songs and  also some classics. Also some rarities can be heard. King is still willing to perform At the Graves but he also said that he would like to play Give Me Your Soul and Shapes of Black on tour. But nothing has been decided yet. It depends on his and his bands mood what they are going to play. Also he didn't know if the US tour or European Tour is going to be the next.

When we asked that is there going to be The Puppet Master type of bonus DVD where King tells the story of the album he said that he has had conversation with Brian Slagel of the topic. It's possible that we will have the bonus DVD with King telling the album story once again. It would be awesome in my opinion. The upcoming album is going to be very heavy, we can hear all the things he has gone through from that album put to the music. It's going to be something very special. Andy has also asked King's if he has any new ideas for new songs or concept and King told he have had plenty of ideas which he didn't told us yet.

Then we talked something of soccer, something of other rock/metal bands which King is a fan of, something stuff related to LaVeyan satanism, something of how to hit the high notes etc.

Well, in my opinion the Welsh language Jade was talking sounded that it would be hard to learn for outsiders but it was still some way fascinating. I just do like British English and it's variations.

No problem. Here's an example of Welsh:

Rwyf wedi bod yn gwrando i King Diamond am o dan blwyddyn!

It translates into:

I've been listening to King Diamond for under a year!

When we asked that is there going to be The Puppet Master type of bonus DVD where King tells the story of the album he said that he has had conversation with Brian Slagel of the topic. It's possible that we will have the bonus DVD with King telling the album story once again. It would be awesome in my opinion. The upcoming album is going to be very heavy, we can hear all the things he has gone through from that album put to the music. It's going to be something very special. Andy has also asked King's if he has any new ideas for new songs or concept and King told he have had plenty of ideas which he didn't told us yet.

It will be great if we can see some recording sessions of rehearsal from the band

I wish someone would have asked if King has heard the band Ghost and what his thoughts on them are. I know he said he doesn't listen to many newer bands but I think he'd dig them, or at least be flattered by his clear influence on them.

Yeah, I thought about that too. Someone should ask him if he's aware of that whole Mercyful Fate-influenced wave that's going on.

That would be great question indeed. There's so many MF influenced newer heavy metal bands -mostly Swedish: for example RAM, The Ghost, In Solitude and Portrait just to name a few that first popped up to my mind. Also in Finland we have new cool bands like Evil-lÿn, Hangman and Dirge Eternal that have been clearly influenced by MF & KD.

No problem. Here's an example of Welsh:

It translates into:

I've been listening to King Diamond for under a year!

:)
Wow, Welsh looks extremely difficult ::)

I'm wishing you best of luck. As a native English speaker I guess you could get much out of King because you don't have to be nervous of speaking your second language. If you get a chance to talk with him ask him if he can give us any new details of upcoming DVD's or upcoming studio album. Even tiny details are interesting to hear. I would have asked of something like that but I forgot.

I have my routine planned until the calls are done: Play Xbox until around 3PM, then sit here patiently :D

Also, my birthday is this Saturday, so if I got this call..BEST BIRTHDAY EVER! What better presents could there be than 4 King Diamond CD's (one of which arrived today: Abigail 25th anniversary edition \m/), 3 Mercyful Fate CD's, and best of all, a call from King! It would be fucking magical :)

So the North/South American calls haven't happened yet? I would love to get a chance to speak with the King. I posted this in the other thread...

"I'm glad to hear that King is recovering.

In 1990 I was the grand prize winner for the "Sleepless Nights with King Diamond" contest held by Roadrunner Records. I counted the correct number of scenes from old horror movies in the "Sleepless Nights" video. If memory serves me, it was 53. I remember watching the video in slow motion on my VCR for hours. I heard about the contest on my local metal radio show and that's also how I found out that I had won. I remember flipping out and screaming "I won! I won!" and my parents were like "what the hell is going on?" The contest winner, a friend and the local DJ and a friend were to be flown out to LA and be given a Universal Studios tour by the King of all his favorite horror movie sets. A few weeks later I got a call from Jonas Nachsin (head honcho at Roadrunner), "have you heard the news?" I was like "yes! I won!" and he was like "oh, i regret to inform you that the contest has been cancelled. King Diamond moved back to Denmark. we're sending you $500." I was so bummed. I've seen the King 2 times solo (1988 and 2003) and 2 times with Mercyful Fate (1993 and 2000), but I've never gotten to meet him. Hopefully some day!"

HammerI like to listen to the stuff that King is talking of his satanic beliefs and everything he has experienced with the dark powers. I'm very into that stuff to be honest. And I think there might be some powers, not sure of what they are. I have experienced something but I will talk to those things later.

I think my favorite has to be when King talked about some girl who was at his place once giving him grief about talking about being surrounded by Powers and Spirits and stuff.  So King summoned one to prove to her how real they are and the poor girl freaked out crying and stuff. 

That seems to be the case though where people who are open to these things are calm when they happen and those who do not believe in them are the one's who always freak out the most and cannot handle it.

from the corporeal to the ideal plane it was a "dangerous meeting" of energies! King Diamond is by far the best thing to happen to music since URIAH Heap bottomed out in 75 and Budgie Topped in at 76! in kaballahistic terms Mercyful fate is a powerfull entropy...

in the last official post of the band in January he said that soon he comes back in Spike sessions, but I think he is busy in the next two shows and maybe something more

Sure, i guess he has no time lately with the upcomings shows and the rest, i sent him a friend request a while ago too without to have feedback yet, but it's not a surprise, he can't spend his time there, especially now.
