Title: Legend of the Headless Rider - A Vastly Underrated Epic!

Goddamn, what a song! Why is it never included in the "best of Mercyful Fate"? In my opinion it deserves far more recognition.

I don't think there are that many "best of Mercyful Fate" albums.  But yes, it's a great song, full of awesome riffs and vocals.

Have to agree there it was one hell of a song along with the old oak and 13 invitations

Epic song, really.

The part with;
"Take a look at the sky, see that evil eye
Tonight the moon is cold as ice!"

Absolutely chilling evil!
It is repeated once more, but I always wanted it to be repeated a third time towards the end as well, it's just such an awesome section.
