King Diamond and Mercyful Fate / Re: What does this forum need?
« Last post by Livia Zita on February 27, 2018, 12:13:58 pm »
It sure did. But it’s also simply so much easier to follow things on social media nowadays. Especially for us. The forum format, as an outlet for news, is not really “worth” to spend time on anymore. To be honest, we reach only a few people here, even less new people, and I really prefer not to spend an hour or two formatting announcements to fit nicely here. :(

I think the forum is still a cool place for fans to talk about stuff, but as a news outlet, I simply cannot and don’t have time anymore to update it (rather play with Byron :) ).

I guess facebook really took a lot of the activity from the forum. Not much has happened after this topic was made, which is almost two years ago.

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?

A promo shot, that's actually a theory I haven't thought about to be honest.  But yeah, it seems strange to use that as a picture for the booklet, cause it really does look like it was taken during a concert.

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!

Hmm, the Time-picture shows King wearing the Black Horsemen-outfit. The outfit King uses on the Roskilde Festival has him wearing a cape and a sleeveless black t-shirt, so it doesn't really look like it's from that show.

Must have been killer to see Mercyful Fate live in 1994, though!

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.

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:
