Top 10 King Diamond/Mercyful Fate Albums
« on: May 17, 2007, 02:16:12 pm »
With an almost 30 year history and large catalogue of KD/MF albums to choose from, it might be very hard to pick which ones are your personal favorites. Nevertheless that's precisely what I aim to do with this thread!

So have at it KD/MF bangers, in order of preference and in one list for both bands name your top ten albums.

1. THEM
2. Abigail
3. Nuns Have No Fun E.P.
4. Don't Break the Oath
5. In the Shadows
6. Melissa
7. The Puppet Master
8. Fatal Portrait
9. '9'
10. Voodoo

Almost 30 years, wow!

1. Mercyful Fate - Melissa
2. King Diamond - Fatal Portrait
3. King Diamond - Abigail
4. King Diamond - Voodoo
5. Mercyful Fate - Dead Again
6. Mercyful Fate - 9
7. King Diamond - House Of God
8. Mercyful Fate - In The Shadows
9. Mercyful Fate - Don't Break The Oath
10. Mercyful Fate - Time

It will be interesting to see if anyone puts 'Give Me Your Soul... Please' in their top 10 after it's been released.

Very difficult to rate, most albums I like pretty close to the same, but here is my best guess.

1. In the Shadows
2. Spiders Lullabye
3. The Eye
4. Time
5. Into the Unknown
6. The Puppet Master
7. The Beginning
8. 9
9. Conspiracy
10. Fatal Portrait

It took me like almost an hour to post this, and Im still not sure if its accurate.

Abigail II, but not Abigail? That's interesting. (Not knocking it, it's actually quite refreshing for someone to have the sequel as a favourite and not the original).

What?! I've never heard of that album. Must be some sort of bootleg.  :D:

On a 'serious' note, the thread makes me wonder what King Diamond, as the only person to play on all those albums, would put as a personal top 10.

Yep. I think II is a masterpiece in and out. It's probably his most under-rated album imo. Abigail although is also a great album, though "Them" would be my first pick over the "2 classic albums that most fans say are best".... the *only* KD/MF album that I hardly listen to would be "The Eye".  All of the rest get regular play rotation. :king:

 :king: Hello, It is I, OK here's my list and excepting Number 1 on the list it is in no particular order.

                  1.  MF- 9 (I can not tell you how much I love this album, for me it is right up there with "MUSIC FROM
                                 THE ELDER by KISS)
                  2. KD- Give Me Your Soul....Please ( ? ) ( I have only heard Never Ending Hill, but if it's any indication
                                                                          of the rest of the album...DAMN!!!!) :D
                  3. KD- THEM ( The first KD album I ever purchased, I still love this one.)
               
                  4. MF- TIME  ( This album is a classic, The Mad Arab is an all time favorite.)

                  5. KD- The Eye  ( I love the intro to this album, and I wish to this day I would have bought the Eye
                                          of The Witch necklace I saw at that record store back in the early 90's)
                  6. MF- Melissa  ( Especially the new 25th anniversary edition!!!!)

                  7. KD- Abigail    ( The Family Ghost is still my favorite KD song, and the first one I ever heard, and just
                                           like the above I love the 25th anniversary edition.)
                  8. KD-Voodoo    ( This is a great album with abit of the Abigail & Them feel, great title track.)

                  9. KD/MF A Dangerous Meeting  ( I know it is basically a best of, but hey....That's why I like it!! and
                                                               a great cover.)
                 10. KD- The Spider's Lullybye  ( The actual story of the Spider's lullaby is awesome..Let's all go to the
                                                             morgue!!!)
Well there it is, and oh just for the record if you would ask me; "Do you have a least favorite album?" Well I would answer, " First let's agree that there is no such thing as a bad KD or MF album, Some are better than others, my least favorite would be The GraveYard....and it still kicks so much ass!!!! :D[/b]
I CAN'T GO TO HELL...SATAN STILL HAS THAT RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST ME.
