What was your first Mercyful Fate and/or King Diamond album?
« on: April 16, 2011, 05:35:38 pm »
What album introduced you to the world of Mercyful Fate and King Diamond?

For me, my first Mercyful Fate album was "Into The Unknown." My first King Diamond album was "The Graveyard."

I had heard the song `Dressed In White before I heard a full album. It was on a tape with other metal bands. I thought it was really good then. A bout 20 yrs ago maybey, I was 9 or 10 yrs old. But the album Them was givin to me from my brother when I was about 11.

First LP I bought was the single with black masses on one side and black funeral on the other. Wish I still had it. :(

Actually, when I worded the question, it doesn't matter if you bought the album or if it was given to you. Me, I bought them. I was just asking what was that introductory album that you either heard, bought, or was given to you.

I bought my brother in law a copy of Give Me Your Soul Please for Christmas. I think he liked it.

even if time was the first one I heard, it took me about 4 years for me to find it to sell here ...

I bought Melissa and Don't break the oath on the same day. heard a song on a late night radio station I loved, but didn't know which album it was on, so bought them both to make sure I got the song. Turns out it was The Oath I heard on the radio station I think. That or Dangerous Meeting, can't remember for sure, and never really liked Melissa the first couple times I heard it cuz I was so hooked on DBTO. By far my favorite album by MF/KD, if not my favortie all time album ever.

I do love Melissa now, don't get me wrong, I was just really blown away by DBTO and I could never get into Melissa. Even though Satans Fall is my all time favorite song by King and company, it wasn't enough to drag me away from DBTO.  :king:

EDIT: And my first KD album was Fatal Portrait. Still one of my favorite non MF album. Abigail, I actually hated when I first heard it, but now it is by far my favorite KD solo album, then FP right close behind it. First 3 songs on that album are fucking epic IMO.  \m/

For me it was Voodoo and Dead Again. Hadn't heard either of the bands when I bought them, just though that their covers where really cool (the local store didn't use to have to much good stuff and I was still learning about more and more great metal bands so often the option was either hearing a band on a compilation album, going by the reviews or the cover art). Can't really say that I regret those purchases  :D
A funny thing is that at that time I didn't get to impressed with Mercyful Fate but I quite quickly feel for KD whilst now I'm a bigger fan of MF than I am of KD (don't get me wrong, I still love KD but I think MF are a bit better)

KD: I had Them on tape. The first vinyls I bought were Them and Abigail.
MF: I had DBTO and Melissa on tape, and the first one as vinyl was The Beginning. And I didn't even know such album existed, I just saw it in the record store one day. Melissa and DBTO were really hard to find here in 89-90 (or something like that).
