it's starts realy great (starting a song with a guitar- or drumsolo is the best way to do it (painkiller, welcome home,...)). it sounds a little bit like abigail2. what isn't bad imo

It had quite a pop-like feeling at times, which I liked. Some progressive rock -parts as well.. time signature changes (or whatever they're called).

Well.. can't wait to hear more!  \m/

WOW. I didn't much trust on what they said about better solos, I thought that they can't make new solos like that anymore. I was so totally wrong. I love those solos! Age hasn't affected Andy's creativity a bit. And I guess that Mike has done some brilliant pieces with his guitar too.

Few Thoughts:
1. This first Riff sounds like The Storm... and it is a minus, but:
2. Guitar solos are outstanding, the guys are doing their jobs;
3. King vocals - sometimes 3 lines at the same time - brilliant;
4. The riff at the end of the song when king sings , aha, aha, darkness coming - fucking great.
5. The whole song sounds very melodic what is not so bad, even more, it is great...
It is hard to judge the whole album, but if it will be as good as this track it can become kings 21st century classic  :D:

ah crap, i noticed now that you can also download the whole song instead of the short sample :-[

very proggy if you ask me, i like that. the drums are getting better again. great guitarsolo's as always
only thing that i don't like that much are the vocals... :( they sounds forced sometimes, like king had a realy hard time doing them, they also don't sound as theatrical as on the other albums. i hope it will be better on the rest of the album (but i don't doubt it, it is for very hard to get in one KDsong without hearing the whole album)

This is probably my first post here. But, if anything can get me from lurking here, it's a new King track.


This is just.. great.

Yes !!
Much better than i expected and probably the best he has done since The Eye .

I totally agree that the solos are excellent and it sounds a bit like Abigail II but
the amazing vocal melodies are back !!!

Can't wait to hear the rest of the album .

Sounds awesome! The only thing was the whole "Storm" thing, but I really like how it sounds overall...  \m/

great song! May sound strange but the sound & atmosphere reminds me mercyful fate's Time and Into The Unknown ::)

Beautiful melody and vocals, great production, devastating solos, shredding riffs :)

This song could have easily come from any of the past 3 or 4 albums.

I can see this, I get an extreme Mercy vibe from this song.  I can also see the similarities to "The Storm," which I'm rather indifferent to.  On the whole, I quite enjoyed the song, and think it has a very large atmosphere to it (that which seems Mercy like), and if the entire album has that vibe in it, I think it'll be pretty fantastic.

Good song, like others have said its alot like The Storm but Iv always liked that song. It does sound a bit more soft and melodic in parts too kinda like From the Other Side but once again thats a song I love. So long as there are more heavier songs on the record then this should fit nicely into the mix!! I tried to get an idea of the storyline for the album but this song doesnt really tell you much, just sets up the atmosphere. Im thinking this is gonna be alot like Them storywise. Although I could be talking crap! LOL!!

I'm not sure what to think of it, it was pretty good, but it seemed almost poppy for King Diamond, nothing wrong with that I guess, but it lacked a bit of oomph! It was really catchy, and had lots of awesome soloing, so I'll probably warm up to it.
