Awesome! But what about Mercyful Fate? We gotta have a new fate album and it WILL sell, because of the hardcore fans like me. Make it retro (more organic, raw like the early 80's, have King go back to his early MF look, get Denner & Hansen back, just everything retro!!) It would be more of a contrast between the two bands that way!!Mercyful Fate WILL SELL. Just give it a chance!!!!

Just now got caught up on this.  This is absolutely great news, as Metal Blade seems to have treated King Diamond and Mercyful Fate with such great respect concerning the re-release of their classic material.

I can't wait to see how King's new album is handled, and maybe just maybe a new Mercyful Fate album?

Great news indeed! I hope Metal Blade Records put their money where their mouth is and give you guys all the backing you deserve!

2013 seems brighter (darker?) already. Bring it on!

Oh the time is coming soon as I can feel it (new album). This has been an interesting trip since Feb 2011 after discovering King Diamond and Mercyful fate for the first time. To hear The Oath on youtube for the first time and then soon after learn that King had this massive surgery just months before I discovered the 2 bands was really strange. Since then I have checked this sight and the forum DAILY for new news of his recovery and new developments . I feel like I have been part of this journey King has made back from the other side. Each new update we have heard over the last 22 months has kept me going in the hope of a full recovery and of hearing a new album again. To see the live metallica event in Dec 2011 with MF then the suprise at Trees in Dallas. The summer festivals were really special to see on you tube. The band sounds so good! The progress has been exciting. It has made me feel like I was back in the 1987 waiting for a new album from Maiden and Metallica. I became a metal fan in early 1987 after Maiden and Metallica had already released their 86 albums. So anticipating a new release back in 87-88 reminds me a lot of what I have been going through 25 years later. I never new of King Diamond or Mercyful fate back then. I regret a little not knowing of them back in the day but really I am glad I didn't  as I have had so much fun the last almost 2 years. I have enjoyed buying the records, cassettes and cd's and listening to them on my vintage equipment. The music is mesmerizing and just so damn good! Congratulations King Diamond, Livia and the band. You deserve it from all the hard work you have gone through!! :icon_biggrin:

For once I agree with you! Would be great, but I don't see it happening. At least not the whole 80's retro thing. I'll setle for a new Fate album in any era though!  \m/ \m/ \m/

Bummer for you, cuz you missed out. Not sure if it's the same for an older person to discover the first few albums of Mercful fate as it is when your younger and more prone to getting high, sitting in a candle lit room hunched over your album cover with lyrics in hand studying everything about the album, absorbing every single note and vibe that comes out of your speakers, penetrating your soul till your head goes WTF did I just hear? Back when it was fresh and we weren't already used to this kind of music! Those days were fucking magical to me, and I still get chills when I hear DBTO and Melissa. They always bring me back to those times when first I heard them. Guess it's the same thing for my mother when she listens to the Beattles lol
