King Diamond and Mercyful Fate / Re: Live Blu Ray
« Last post by Satans KINGdom on November 04, 2017, 03:18:50 pm »
Halloween is one of the few songs where I do sing a lot (along with Arrival and Mansion in Darkness). In Halloween, this is not only to do the harmonies, but to also give the chorus some... well... chorus-y feel :) Also, sometimes I have to sing a whole line along before splitting off into a harmony for the last word or two; it’s near impossible to nicely jump into a harmony for just a different tone for 2 seconds (and it sounds weird live).

We have everything worked out to sound as good as possible :)
Don't get me wrong, if it makes for a better sound then I'm all for it. At least you guys are honest about it, unlike other artists that hide vocalists, pipe in music and other things to make themselves sound better. It's not like what I heard Ozzy does, or has done, where he has some dude backstage singing for him while he lip synches. Not sure how true that is, but I wouldn't doubt it. I used to work for I.A.T.S.E. stagehand union, and some of my co-workers worked a Sabbath reunion show back in 1998 where they saw a singer and drummer backstage doing the music. I don't know how much singing the guy was doing, maybe just a little bit, but still they were hiding it from people. I'd rather have someone be honest and not deceive me. I respect that King doesn't do that with you, and love seeing you on stage with him. If it makes him sound better, (which the last show I saw was truly amazing) then I hope whatever magic formula you guys have, keeps going for a long time to come.

and don't take what I said the wrong way on the other hand lol King sounds great with and without you!  :gah:

Looks like Livia sings a lot on there. Not that it matters to me, but I thought she said she only sings certain parts of some songs. Looked like she was singing the whole song on that video.

Looking forward to hearing and seeing the whole thing. I've purposefully not watched any of those shows on youtube, just so it will be fresh and new when the official release comes out. The less I see the better till I hold the bluray in my hands!  :king:

King Diamond and Mercyful Fate / Re: Question about Madeline from The Eye
« Last post by Shadowswhisper on October 31, 2017, 06:02:39 pm »
 A very interesting question to be sure and maybe some validity to it being a possible scenario.   As it would seem Madeline awoke to find the eye as she put it on the necklace either by invocation or of its own pure will of evil set in motion terrible events such as the death of father David whom was probably a good priest bringing about the reign of father Picard.   

What is also revealing is that Madeline entered the convent to hide from her sins so it is likely she was the little girl who looked at the eye causing the death of her friend perhaps that is why she wanted to become a nun to absolve her soul of that guilt.   She may have kept the necklace for any number of reasons or it simply may have appeared again to do its nefarious work in the church as revenge for the inquisition and burning of Jeanne D' basson.

Good question  Stay Heavy \m/

King Diamond and Mercyful Fate / Re: Interesting King Diamond Interview from 1986

For those interested Mind over Metal did a podcast reviewing King Diamonds "Them".  Interesting they hint at what fans have said for years that King is warning people not to mess with these powers in his songs and storylines as they are evil and no good at all can come from dealing with these spirits and powers.  He clearly stands behind the Satanic Philosophy but when it comes to the forces he calls Satan he clearly see's them as dangerous and evil most likely due to his own bad experiences with them that he has talked about.  Ironically King sounds almost christian like in that warning of dealing with all supernatural occult powers

I've always been puzzled about the mysterious Two Little Girls myself.
It doesn't really give any good explanation on how The Eye suddenly ends up in the possession of Madeleine. Was the convent built upon the stake which Jeanne D'basson was burnt and lost her necklace?

But yes, as TwilightKing says, this part of the lyrics is very strange;

"That night she awoke to find "The Eye" on the stone cold floor.
Why, she never ever would know why but she put it on."

She just awoke and found the ancient necklace?

I guess only King has the answer to these questions, or maybe they can be found somewhere in the lyrics, I don't know.

What is for certain is that The Eye is a masterpiece of an album. It's been my favourite album by KD ever since I heard it in 1992.
