Wow this is a great song.  I really have high hopes for this album now.  Its a bit on the lighter side but its how the story starts and I would like to think the album will get heavier and darker as the story progresses.

Wow.... Great song with killer solo's! Very aggressive yet melodic. This song has vocal melodies that remind me of the styles from The Eye, Spiders Lullaby, The Graveyard, PM, and Aby 2 (storm riff)..... It's like a mix of all of his albums..... Sounds great!


Btw what references have you guys noticed so far?  I heard a few...

This song slays!
I always told to myself that i wouldn't listen to any of the tracks before buying the album...I just couldn't resist it. I couldn't possibly ignore this song for more than 1 month.

I'm glad that the lengthy solos are back and on top of that they are awesome. As someone stated before I also noted that the voice of King Diamond sounds differently from Abigail II and The Puppetmaster, it sounds more...I can't find the word...well, I love it!  :king:  It has the tempo changes, the different vocals, the shredding solos...it is King Diamond and it's great!
The only negative point about this song is the already stated similarity of the main riff with the one in The Storm of Abigail II. Of course Abigail II was a good album but in my opinion it suffered from not having very memorable songs.

I'm even more anxious to get my hands and ears in the new album.

here are the lyrics i typed up for the song.   please help me figure out the lines with the question marks after it. I'm pretty sure of the rest.  i also added them to www.lyricsplugin.com where i have added and fixed most of Kings songs cause alot of people copy/pasted them and they were mostly wrong.  In order to see the lyrics with windows media player you have to name the song properly.  (rename to Never Ending Hill) without all the rest. 

Time is never ever standing still.
Except on Never Ending Hill.

From here you can see Devil Lake.
Where the sunset is never too late.  ??

Never Ending Hill is where I live.
The Old Oak Tree is standing still.

Can you hear the birds singing in the tree.
Can you hear the wind shaking all the leaves.

Whoa, Take a look at the sky.
Golden clouds are moving right by my eyes.
Black Cat Magic is down by the lake.
Chasing butterflies that can't get away.   

Now the sun is slowly going down.
I can hear, Devil Lake is quiet now.
Magic! Magic come home!
Say goodbye to your butterfly cause nighttime is coming awake!

Time is never ever standing still.
Except on Never Ending Hill.

From here you can see Devil Lake.
Where the sunset is never too late.  ??

Whoa, Take a look at the sky.
Golden clouds are moving right by my eyes.
Black Cat Magic is down by the lake.
Chasing butterflies that can't get away.

Darkness coming.
Sun is drowning.
Drowning in Devil Lake.
Magic come in.
Light is fading.
Oh yeah its getting late.

Take a look at the sky.
Golden clouds are moving right by my eyes.
Black Cat Magic is down by the lake.
Chasing butterflies that can't get away.

As others have said, this song needs a few listens...I'm not impressed with the slow 'painkiller' riff in the verse - it's just too similar to 'the storm', which is one of my least favourite songs. I was expecting something more aggressive (eg. Loa House) to open the record. The same goes for the vocals (similar to Abby 2) and the lyrics aren't fantastic. The chorus is a bit too commerical (what others have called 'poppy') for my liking and definitely reminds of From The Other Side/Moonlight (which I'm also not a big fan of). There are some slow parts in the song which make it lose momentum.

Still...there's a lot to like about the song. It's great to have another album. :) The solos are fantastic (I love the key change in the second batch), as is the production. The 'ah ah, ah ah' riff is nice (unexpected) and prevents the song from stalling. Hopefully, there will be some heavier songs on the album and this one is just setting the mood for what is to come...

Definitely a "Storm" vibe to it, but it sounds great!

I cant' wait for the rest now.

Dude, the more I listen to this the better it is!  You have to listen to it at least 3 times.  I love it!  Absolutely love it!  Thank you King!   :king: \m/
I agree .. the first time I heard it I thought .. not bad.  The 2nd time I heard it I thought, hey, this is pretty good.  By the 3rd time I thought it was a strong track.  There's a lot of like about it.

Someone answer something for me though .. what does King say just before saying Never Ending Hill .. it sound like Santa or something, but I know that obviously isn't it.

Edit ... I see someone typed the lyrics up ... thanks!!  Except, was the word I couldn't make out for some reason.

I also think that one line in question up above is this.

"The Velvet sunset is never too late"

Yes, I think you are right.  I do recall that "Magic" was going to be a character in this new King story.

I really love the lyrics for this song.  They are a lot better than most songs on The Puppetmaster which always felt a bit rushed to me.

No, that was Ghost.

Thank you for that. I thought it was Ghost who died too, but I wasn't sure.

Secondly, I'd like to thank the lovely and talented Miss Livia Zita for coming through with the lyrics. (What's up with butterflies all of a sudden?) *grins* Now I want to listen to "So Sad" again....but back to the point.

I have listened to this song roughly seventeen times and it gets better each and every time I hear it. I cannot believe how good King's voice sounds! I slap myself for not recognizing Devil Lake from The Spider's Lullabye until I read it here. I'm supposed to be a devoted fan of the King of Diamonds, dammit! (Since 1993) How could I make a noob mistake! Arrrrgh!

In short. I love the song. When I read on Blabbermouth that it was available I literally almost pissed myself. I cannot wait for this album. Someone said earlier that they thought Gimme Your Soul....Please was going to be THE album of this year and you know what? After hearing this song....I agree.

...but damn, that Old Oak Tree sure gets around don't it? This dude who "Lives on Never Ending Hill" must have been "at the Sabbath" huh?

 :D
