Do they come in a sleeve or just a polybag?

I am 100% certain it will be a polybag since this was the case with the new PD's from Abigail, Them and Fatal Portrait.

Funny enough, with the European releases there is the following sticker attached. this isn't the case in the US.

Quite fun to read this again.

Such an amazing record. And the cover is just made for a PD-edition.

Do they come in a sleeve or just a polybag?

In the latest Sweden Rock Magazine (as my post three years ago), I read that King wants the dynamics and production in the vein of the original Abigail-album on the new record.
This I give a hundred thumbs up to. He gives quite a detailed description of what he is after on the new album, and it sends me chills of excitement.
He even mentions that King and Andy were discussing that it would be great to have Roberto Falcao back to do some producing. I don't know if that
will ever happen, but it would be one hell of a package!

I for one would love for a band like King Diamond that records an album today and existed in 80's would go back to that big and epic 80's style that made those early KD-albums so massive.

Fingers crossed for everything!

We’re working on redesigning the site (new management is a huge help)! I’m excited about it!
We do have a dedicated button for the forums, just have to scroll a bit down (see screenshot I just took).

The site is awkward to use right now, I look very much forward to see what 5B will come up with for the new look ^_^

Ah, never saw that. Which sort of proves my first point, most people only look at the top links and wouldn't scroll down there. That said, I'm also just an old fart that's blind so I never saw those.  :kopfpatsch:

I like the look of the front page, but these forums really do need an upgraded look to match it. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with.

I think this topic is fit for resurrection. We were talking about this three years ago, lol.

King has now reportedly compiled 80% of the ideas, with possible verses & rhymes for a concept album. Andy has some riffs in the works. :)

What I love about KD's best music is its ENERGY - the combination of both melodic rhythm & lead guitars, independent of each other. The melodrama! Backed by King's stories, falsetto, shrieking & vocal harmonies. Yes, the progressive elements. Hope to hear more of them.

Are we still wishing for the same thing in 2018? :gah:

Another thing I just thought of is how the forums are kind of hidden now with the new site. I think the forums should have it's own link on the top of the page, not hidden under the "more" option.

It's a shame that it came to that, because I still find it easier to follow stuff in a forum format than Facebook and or twitter type sites. I'm sure it's why this forum is so dead now, which is really a shame. The main reason I find this better also, is the fact that you can remain anonymous here, but on FB, your real name and information is out there for anyone to see. That doesn't keep me from commenting on topics there, but I don't need everyone on my friends list to know what bands I interact with, or what I say, and when I say it. Some groups are private, but most band pages are public (as they should be), and therefor everything you post on them is made public as well. So my interaction with a lot of stuff is a lot less than it would be if posted on a site like this.

But life goes on, so I'll either adjust to it or not. Probably not though, I'm old and hate change lol
Same here!
I never had a Facebook account and I don't like social media in general! I'm still relying to the official web site to get news! Yeah, sometime I realize I'm missing something, because, as Livia said, Facebook is easier to follow and it reaches more people and faster than a fan community!
Though I have not decided yet to make a Facebook account!
