OK, they look legit to me. What am I missing? Why the question in this thread about the validity of these sweet vinyls? They are Metal Blade pressings, orderable from King's official merch shop and advertised on his Facebook page:



This thread was started before the news of the LPs was put in the official merch shop and the facebook page.

I probably mis-read you guys somewhere along the line. Carry on. I am going to go order these suckers right now.

When I started this thread there was no information anywhere else about the reissues so I was asking if anyone else knew about them.

I have scanned the thread but was probably not being careful enough: which records have actually been rereleased and by which labels?

Also see there is coming two more reissues of KD on Metal Blade in may. But havnt seen any about these on the Metal Blade pages.

There is coming two version of:
Deadly Lullaby 2xLP on red/black vinyl and clear vinyl
Give Me Your Soul...Please 2xLP on blood dress vinyl and cold as ice vinyl.

Anyone know anything more of these. Originally The Deadly Lullaby was a 3xlp, and Give me Your Soul...Please was single LP. GMYP as double could mean bonus track.
But how good could a 3xLP squiezed onto a 2xLP sound?

The easiest way is to cut tracks, I don't think they will do that though!

I have the original Deadly and goddamn that is an awesome record!

That's pretty cool, but I already scored a boxed set that contains King Diamond's first five albums on CD. Not the best packaging style I've seen, but I got it pretty inexpensive.

Hell i have a no presents for Christmas vinyl in my limited collection of vintage recording cant wait to hear.   Unless its scratched to all hell  personally think vinyl records sound better the cd or cassette tapes.  Of course the depends on the phonograph as well speakers equalizer etc.  But yes cant wait to get my hands on them.


Stay heavy  \m/
The road to hell is paved with good intentions...would explain why i am so nice !

I doubt they are doing anything new album at this point but I hope I am wrong haha.  :gah:  I mean there is no pressure to deliver one of the best comeback albums in metal or anything.  :D

I ordered the Deadly Lullabyes clear reissue from someone on ebay.

I'm interested to hear how the new Them sounds compared to the original.  To my ears it's never sounded good on any format as it is the worst sounding King Diamond album which is a shame.

Unfortunately, when I got tot he store, they only had Melissa and Them left.  I picked both of them up.  I just opened Melissa and I am about to drop the needle after posting this.






They did a very nice job with the packaging.

I love the sound of the Melissa reissue.  It is a LOT better than the 2007 issue.  It is very comparable to the original issue I have in the 1980s.  I will have to listen to that one again to compare.
