Title: Your top 7 Mercyful Fate records...
Post by: Bub on October 07, 2016, 12:00:13 pm
Since Mercyful Fate has 7 full studio albums, not counting the debut EP, bootlegs etc...what's your top7?

Being an older guy and having grown up with with Melissa and Don't Break The Oath, i thought about excluding these.
So anything after 1993.
The main reason in my way of thinking is that most will go for Don't Break The Oath or Melissa for the #1 spot.
But i know i am one of the older guys and not everyone will think like me (or like my direct friends whom i know and worship DBTO) and who are very passionate about these records.
We have a lot of younger fans as well who have learned about Mercyful Fate / King Diamond through records that were later released and probably think differently.
Or older fans who just do not agree with me, which is cool enough.

So, what are your top 7 Mercyful Fate records?


1. Don't Break The Oath  \m/
2. Melissa
3. Time
4. Dead Again
5. 9
6. In The Shadows
7. Into The Unknown.

I think Time deserves a better mixing job (what's happening with the drums and the bass?), but the songs are great.
