Here's the way I like to put it- Midnight had the voice of an angel fallen from grace. Kind Diamond has the voice of the devil that tempted him. There's a certain power and anxiety about the music of Mercyful Fate that can't be matched. And frankly, King Diamond is a terrifying individual.
What's becoming of me?

Yeah he's a pretty intimidating looking individual lol, and agree with the Mercyful fate comment. And its amazing the vocal ranges and high wails that come out of that little guy, i dont think he's much bigger than DIO was.

New live package "Songs for the Dead" being released on Metal Blade, featuring a show from Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium (2016) and an intimate show at Philadelphia's Fillmore (2015). The preview clip shown in this article is awesome he sounds great as does the band. Kicking myself that I missed this Philly show. Can't wait to see the full show.

He sounds great in those and Andy LaRocque is an awesome and underrated guitarist.
