HOG vs GMYSP. Which one do you prefer over the other?
« on: July 23, 2009, 01:22:10 pm »
Both are solid great, but i would pick GMYSP. HOG has killer music and production, but the story is the least of my KD likes, and i still think the HOG story is decent. GMYSP has all the elements. Eventhough it is mainly focused on 2 charactors, the cold haunting solitude and desperation makes GMYSP so cool! Also the music on GMYSP is raw back to the basics old school metal that is put together so well. \m/
And god said to adam and eve, "you may listen to mf/kd, but dont eat those apples over there".

Hmmmmm. Interesting choice. I might choose GMYSP. Only 'cause I enjoy Soul's line-up over HoG's...
Resistance is inadvisable...

GMYSP!HOG,is an album that i see as a comeback-along with Voodoo-to the band's good days.GMYSP,on the other hand was what i would like to hear after the Eye era.The best performance in guitars,bass,drums and vocals is in it!!!Pure masterpiece!

Voodoo and HOG to me are much better than GMYS...P.

I prefer the aggressive sound, as opposed to the lighter sound. I mean Voodoo makes me want to pound my head through a wall of steel, at the same time maintains the melodic sound that is KD. Where as I feel GMYS...P maintains mostly on the melodic part.

I think exactly the opposite, that HOG has a good story, but some of the songs are little bit...ehhh.. not so good. :gah: I prefere GMYSP. :cool:

For Me, House Of God. I love all the aspects about it, especially "Upon The Cross" and "The Trees Have Eyes."The story line is also out of this world. Another King Diamond masterpiece.  :king:

Weird comparison. I don't understand why these two albums should be compared in the first place. My opinion: GMYSP wins, KO in the 2nd round! :D: Superior songs, vocals, guitar solos... pretty much everything except for the cover, especially the backside where you have to turn it upside-down (HOG cover) to read the song titles, and the cross turns upside down with it. :cool:

I hate the production on House of God, and to a lesser extent, Voodoo. So, Give Me Your Soul.

GMYSP

HoG is my least favorite KD album. Just can't get into it for some reason.

I like them both but for different reasons. HOG has many catchy songs and the story is cool in my opinion. Also, King's voice has an emotive quality that is missing in GMYS...P I think. These two records take me to different places in my head.

HOG is my fav KD album with Abigail & Conspiracy.
So.. HOG.
Excellent story, very romantic and dark, depressive. Killer songs like Catacomb, The Trees Have Eyes, House Of God, Just A Shadow, This Place Is Terrible, Help.

As for GMYSP.... its quite good musically, a bit repetitive for my taste though. And i don't like the story at all. Boring, incoherences, too much descriptions, nothing happens.

The GMYSP 2 main charactor stay in one main area story actually worked very well for me. And the entire music package is great. :king:

HOG definitely here.  \m/
It has a very unique sound from the other albums; a trend KD always had before (versus MF, to a point)
GMYSP is awesome, but the SOUND is allot like PM which is my second favorite (next to Conspiracy)
But my vote would have to go with original sound here.   
The story of GMYSP is more original IMHO. Both rock, but thats my 2 cents    :king:

GMYSP. It has more good songs than HOG, imo.
Like, whatever.
