Your top 5 Mercyful Fate and King Diamond tunes
« on: April 03, 2009, 09:09:29 pm »
King and company have made many great albums and I see everyone has trouble deciding between albums but how about overall songs? I've found my favorites songs are usually a mix of intense or emotional King vocal deliveries or very melodic or intense guitar riffs. My favs....

MF

The Old Oak                     (a great GREAT head banging riffs! The second half makes me wanna KILLLLL!) \m/
Desecration of Souls          (eerie and heavy as HELL)
The Afterlife                     (the guitar/vocal harmonies are beautiful)
The Bell Witch                  (that riff is just AWESOMELY HEAVY)
Castillo del Mortes             (great guitar riffs the lryics are cool)

KD

The Candle                      (the beginning is so scary) :D
Charon                            (heavy riff and awesome vox)
Welcome Home                 (awesome riffs and vox)
Sleepless Nights                (the song has everything)
Visit From the Dead            (this song has it all too)
 :king:

Cool topic that I've often wondered about but I just can't do it.  It's like asking me to choose between my kids or something....  Different moods for me require different songs, so I go through phases where I might listen to Abigail and Them for a couple of days then throw in the Puppet Master or something.  KD/MF always IMO offer a consistent level of quality versus many other bands I've listened to.

I think I read in an interview that out of all the songs King Diamond composed Devil Eyes was the only one he did not like!
