The word "PLEASE" is there for a very good reason, wait until you read the lyrics!

 :D

Can't wait. Thanx for the info Renzo. It's great, great news!
looking forward to seeing the cover.

Am I the only one more uncomfortable with "gimme" than "please" ?

There's no reason to be uncomfortable with either, since that phrase is probably spoken by the little girl. She's supposed to talk in a child-like manner, isn't she?

Then the album could be called: ScAry AlBuM Numbah 666, with the title being written in crayon on the cover all scribbley. Just because there is a creepy lil' girl in the concept story does not mean the cd should have a preschool friendly title.

EDIT: Surely King doesn't want 'his best album ever' to have the most ridiculous album title ever? Unless the artwork & booklets have already been printed, it should be fairly easy for King to rename track eight to 'Gimme your soul...please' and come up with a new album title? :gah:

Renzo said he saw the "unfinished cover", so chances are it hasn't been printed yet. Here's hoping King will listen to the fans about this...

On another note:

Want to get a little taste of what you might expect from the lyrics? Here you go: 
Me and my black cat Magic, the beautiful house on Never Ending Hill, the little girl in the bloody dress and her dead little brother,  the dark,  the floating head woman, shapes of black and YOU

Huh? Is that a THEM reference or something?

It will be extremely interesting to see what this album actually sounds like based on how King describes it.  Rarely do you see metal bands these days actually bring back the powerful lead work and distortion of the 80's and I am getting the impression that King wants to give it to us again...especially the way he describes Andy and Mike's solos etc.  I really cant wait for this album.   \m/

Wow.. ages since I was on these forums, although I've mostly lurked (in the dark) lately :) Hopefully some ol' folks remembers me :)

The new album sounds really kickass so far. Can't wait for summer. :)

Very Killer news, and I love the fact King said this could be one of his darkest stories ever.
I am hoping to get that same creepy feeling from this cd as I did when i first heard "Them".

I never got excited about an upcoming album before...But for some reason I'm eager to get my hands on the new KD album and to get things worst we're still in March! Maybe the fact that the lastest one is from 2003 has something to do with it. ::)

Btw, I don't understand all the fuss about the album title. Considering the usual theme of KD's album concepts and the info about the new one, I think that "Gimme Your Soul...Please" is a wicked title. And if we add something involving an innocent looking little girl and blood in the cover it just gets better.

The majority here seem to really like it, including me. I remember on an old KD forum, some people had problems with the title of The Puppet Master, saying it resembled Metallica's Master Of Puppets too much. ::)

But after getting to know the story line, I couldn't have thought of a more perfect title. It should be the same case with this one, and I think that anyone would agree in the end.

I'm not surprised, because that was a rather blatant similarity! Maybe it was intentional anyway, as King's little homage to Metallica?

The first thing that came to my mind was the movie of the same name, then the album.

That sort of homage is not uncommon anyway. For example, Blind Guardian titled one of their albums A Night At The Opera in homage to Queen.

put in context with the story of the album, i don't think that it's a homage. But it suits as one.

While this is great news (can't wait till june/july \m/ ), I am very disappointed with the album title. Gimme your soul............please? :-[

hahaha, thats exactly the same I was thinking. At least he should call it "Give me your soul".

But "gimme" and than "please" at the end?!?! wot da?!?!
