King Diamond and Mercyful Fate / Re: King and the hat.
« Last post by SatanKing on Today at 08:10:19 pm »
I'm pretty certain that the picture of King in "Time" is from the Roskilde Festival 1994. That gig was a one off gig before the release of the album. As you can see in the video below King wears the hat. And by the way , I was there. Young, drunk and happy to finally see the King live for the first time!

I still have a copy of that show that I bought years ago!

King Diamond and Mercyful Fate / Re: King and the hat.

heh, good question.

It might be just a promo shot, not from a real live concert.
That's all i can think off.

And allthough it's a nice picture, if it's just a promo shot, my guess is, they would have gotten a better one, where King poses more for the picture.
It's not a screengrab from a videoclip either since King doesn't use the bones to hold a microphone.
So, it must be from a live situation.

Maybe Livia can ask King, when she reads this?

King Diamond and Mercyful Fate / King and the hat.

Okay. This is a question that I've been wondering about for quite a few years.
The picture in the booklet of Time (1994), it shows King wearing the hat for the first time.



It obviously shows King live with the hat. But the last thing King did live was with
Mercyful Fate during the In The Shows-tour of 1993, and he did not wear the hat
during that tour, as we can see on for example this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25-Y3iPBIck

So how is it that in the Time-booklet it shows King with the hat, when King did
not wear the hat during the shows on the In The Shadows-tour in 1993?

It seems strange that King suddenly started using the "black horseman" image
in the middle of the In The Shadows-tour, which I have never seen any footage
of or talked to anyone that confirm that. I know that King started using the hat
during the Time-tour, but that doesn't explain how the picture with King with a
hat got into the Time-booklet before that tour even started.

Any theories or specific answers to this?
I'm sure Livia could get an answer, but I'm not sure how often she checks the forum.

Anyway, let me what you think.

King Diamond and Mercyful Fate / Re: Abigail 2 The Revenge question...

As an older fan all the way back, I absolutely consider this one of his best records, and I can't understand that it constantly gets rated near the bottom in most Album rankings I've seen around here and elsewhere. It's dynamic, it's atmospheric, the songs are top notch, it sounds amazing- the production is great- and the guitar playing is off the charts- even more than "normal". This record shreds. If you haven't given it a fair chance- I strongly suggest you try again. I did that with The Graveyard many years ago: didn't grab me at first. took me a couple years later to really let it get me. Now- it's near the top as well.  :king:

This!

And I always seem to agree with Shadowswhisper, so thumbs up to him as well!

It is a cool interview, too bad the sound is a bit bad: https://youtu.be/_6OokIMoFZg

First I thought that the bass-player was someone called Charlie but then it dawned on me that it's Sharlee....anyways, nice to see guys doing laundry!  :gah:

Yes musically there is allot of content on the album for sure.   The concept as well as the over all orchestration were good.   I think allot of fans including myself expected it to be very similar in construction to the original Abigail i mean it was a solid effort all in all enjoyed many of the songs to be sure.

Stay heavy !  \m/

I feel like Bart Simpson about this statue  :icon_lol:

I'm sure nobody is blaming the band for this. Shit happens, I would hope the fans understand that. Besides, I'm more excited to get the Rock icons statue. That thing looks so badass, I can hardly wait to see it in real life.  :king:

I agree with you, no one is blaming the band. This is only a weird situation, why cancel all the orders if the shape will be realeased?
At least for me will be fine to keep my order active, I can wait more 4 months until realease.... Unfortunatelly they only helped those sellers on Ebay that put the price as high as possible.....

Other point that I agree is about the statue, mainly after saw the certificate signed and a picture of dozens of statues... Fingers crossed to be one of the 77!  :D:
