The first song I ever heard from Mercyful Fate was Doomed By The Living Dead from the Best of CD. Holy shit, that opening riff still kicks ass. \m/

The first time I ever heard anything from King Diamond (the band) was when I bought Abigail and "Them" at the same time and listened to Abigail's opener Funeral. It was kinda scary, gave me the creeps, which was nice. (Out From The Asylum is even more creepy.) Since Arrival there hasn't been a chance to not to dig King's music. KICK ASS! :king:

It was '95 (If I remember it right) when I bought Conspiracy. The religion-book of our school had King Diamond (King with a skull from Time-era) on one of its page and it got me inspired :) That was the first album of KD to rock my world.  :king:

The moderator has directed us to reply in this old thread by linking it fromt he new thread and that is why Im posting here.
Way back in 1987 I bought, "Don't break the Oath" by Mercyful Fate, because I liked the cover. I loved this album and had no idea it was King Diamond singing. Now I was a teenager in high school then and King Diamond and his fans had a bad reputation and I had even ridiculed a fellow student that sat with me at lunch for having King Diamond  written on his book covers. Later I found out MF was King Diamond's old band, and I bought Them, when it came out. I loved this album. Abigail had already been out and my friend bought it for me. I never liked that album though til recently. It took about 19 years to grow on me or rather for me to learn the songs enough that I like them. Very complex album.

Last Halloween, my friend was dressing up as King Diamond (I'll upload pictures later) and I was wondering, you know who's that? He's in corpse paint....Hmm must be a Black Metal singer. Halloween ends and I get back to my home, and on youtube I search out King Diamond, I see the video for "Welcome Home" and I didn't think too much of it, (and I love falsettos by the way) but it seemed rather interesting, and decide to research it even more. That's when I figured out King Diamond was from Mercyful Fate (Some other friend was telling me to listen to MF but I never got around to) So I look up in youtube MF and found the video Nightmare be thy Name and my mouth just dropped, I  looked more into it and before I knew it I was Mesirized by his voice and lyrics. Now I own all of King Diamond's album and I own MF's Mellisa, Don't Break the Oath, In the Shadows, and Time! So everyday I listen to King Diamond's music at least three times a day, lol. :king:

First King Diamond song was "The Family Ghost".  I ran out and purchased Abigail when it was released.  As for Mercyful Fate I think it was "A Dangerous Meeting".

First song I listened was Arrival (KD) and Doomed by living dead (MF). It was just two years ago, when my sister was presenting me the metal world. She showed me a lot of bands, but something called my attention on KD song. I thought: "Oh,that's my band! I am in!". His song rocks  \m/

fuck it was SO damn long ago..perhaps 1985...I think the FIRST song I heard was probably "Come To The Sabbath"...I would've been 17...and hanging out with my oldest friend that I still am in touch with, Ronnie Forte...in Staten Island NY..possibly at a South Beach Sickies party but maybe not...anyway I was a big fan from that first listen..and I devoured "Don't Break the Oath" and "Melissa" as well as "Fatal Portrait" when THAT came out...and "Abigail" also...

but like I said in my other post I've been outta the loop a long while...would love to get back IN though...as King Diamond/Mercyful Fate is one of the FEW bands from back then I haven't seen...I've seen Celtic Frost, Whiplash, Voivod, Destruction, Kreator, Pestilence, Grave, Bolt Thrower, Entombed, Sacrifice, Believer, Disharmonic Orchestra, Grave, Entombed, Death, Ripping Corpse, Unleashed, Skinless, Morbid Angel, Sodom, Corpse Vomit, Evoken, Morgoth, Pungent Stench, Demolition Hammer, Revenant, and many more I can't remember..

I see that the immortal King is gonna be at B.B. King's this spring...that's the closest venue to me and I hope to be there!

I saw King at the culture room in ft lauderdale. It was great because its a small place and he was literally ten feet away from me singing. I mean right fucking there, I could touch him.

by the way has anyone else heard the Exhumed version of "No Presents for Christmas"? it's pretty good, the music is on the money but they can't really reproduce the vocals..

I noticed I repeated myself a few times in my earlier post where I listed some of the bands I've seen, ha ha...little bit drunk at the time!

The first song that I ever heard was Mercyful Fate - Curse of the Pharaohs way back in 1984 on a radio show from Providence RI called Doug and Jack's Metal Attack.
Then I went to my local record store and bought Melissa on vinyl. :D

In 1995 I purchased Mercyful Fate-Time, my favorite album to this day. I was blown away! And twelve years later and thousands of cd's later, there still is no better band. Right after I bought Time, I got Abaigal and The Eye all in one purchase! Ofcourse, King Diamond is my second favorite band. And the rest is all history. Thank you King for making the best music in the world and for giving my life power and inspiration through the tough times in my life. HAIL!
