I had been reading about King in metal mags and had already become quite curious about him. This was when I was maybe 14 and still fairly new to real metal. Then I happenes to see the video for Welcome Home and became resolute on getting ahold of some King Diamond. I don't count that as my first experience because the video was poorly taped and the sound was crap. So I got The Eye, actually sat down and got myself in a bit of a metallic mood before even listening, and pressed play. MAGIC! DARKNESS! Very real reaction to something very real that lurks in this music, and I was hooked.

First Mercyful Fate was the Essential Don't Break the Oath, which I purchased after beginning to run out of KD albums to get ahold of, Very raw and incidious. Honestly, it wasn't my thing at first, but it quickly grew on me and eclipsed my love of the Diamond albums briefly.

The first song I heard was A Corpse Without Soul and the first Diamond album I got was Abigail. Still loving it!

Mercyful Fate - Evil
because I'd heard the Mercyful Fate medley and I'd found out they were a band and instantly got a hold of the Melissa album

and King Diamond - The Candle
cause I wanted to hear some KD so I got Fatal Portrait
THIS PLACE IS TERRIBLE!

First song i had ever heard by king diamond was Dressed in white off the Fatal portrait album. Course was a big fan of mercyful fate in the early 80s and when the band broke up i didn't know King had started another band was dating this girl in the mid 80s and went over to her house one day and i heard kings voice.

In anycase asked her where she got it cause i didn't know mercyful fate made another album.  Well anyways she told me king diamond has a band named after him now so the next day i went out and bought Abigail and ever since been a fan.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions...would explain why i am so nice !

:cool: well ... the first time I heard a Mercyful Fate track was in 1994, I was around 15, at a friend's house. His father had (and have always) a nice collection of metal albums in vinyls and CDs too. I borrowed that day two albums : "Don't Break The Oath" and Accept's "I'm a Rebel" ... Two new fav' bands in my metallic pocket !!!

Yeah it was back in 1998, when i bought randomly "A Dangerous Meeting" tape...so the very first song i ever heard from MF/KD was "Doomed by the living dead"  \m/

And the rest, as they say...is history! :cool:
