King Diamond Abigail

If you’re a fan of King Diamond, than you know that today is a major observance in the annals of the Satanic singer’s catalog of concept albums, as it was on July 7, 1777 that Abigail LaFey come into this world stillborn …born…born…born…born.

Since it’s highly unlikely we’ll ever see a Google doodle for this occasion, to mark Abigail’s (un)birthday today, have a listen here below to King Diamond’s “The 7th Day Of July 1777” from the 1987 album Abigail.

King Diamond Is Back With Grammy Nomination

King Diamond grammy nomination Volbert Room 24 song 2014

Tonight is the live telecast of the 56th Annual Grammy Awards and while I typically dislike 99.9% of the music represented at this awards show, I will still tune in. It’s the one time of the year where I find out “who the fuck are those people” who dominate the current pop charts. Here’s the thing: If you’re not Madonna/Lady Gaga (same thing) or now Katy Perry (who I still call Cat-y Perry) or Beyonce (Mrs. Carter if you’re nasty), then I probably don’t know the hell you are and if I do, I’m probably baffled as to why anyone would consider you relevant.

Anyhow, all this to say, I have always felt and will likely always feel like the Grammys are complete bullshit.

So, why bother writing about the Grammys? Well, first, there’s the whole Metallica thing — I was a fan well before the Black Album was even conceived and was around for their first Grammy performance, so I’m looking forward to seeing them. Second, and most importantly, I’m psyched that King Diamond – and by King Diamond I mean King himself, not his band — has been nominated this year (the band was nominated in 2008 for “Never Ending Hill,” but lost to Slayer). King’s nomination, in the Best Metal Performance category, comes from his guest appearance on Volbeat’s song “Room 24.”

King Diamond

Are you after a drop of a creepy view for this Halloween? Look no further than these two-part videos from the master of darkness himself, King Diamond, telling you the spooky tale of The Puppet Master, the story which forms the heart for his 2003 album of the same name.

The videos, which you can view at the bottom of this post, were recorded for a bonus DVD edition release of The Puppet Master. You can also seize yourself a copy of the album with the bonus DVD.

King Diamond has long been a permanent fixture in horror-style metal, and influential in the areas of Black Metal, Thrash Metal, and Death Metal. Bands such as Metallica and Megadeth cite King Diamond as a major inspiration in the realm of metal.

What If The Big 4 Metal Tour Was The Big 8?

The Big 4

Metal Sucks posed a question this week: If The Big Four were The Big 8, which bands would be the next four in the group?

If you’re unaware, The Big 4 Tour is comprised of thrash metal giants Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. The tour is scheduled to arrive in just one city this April in the United States, much to the dismay of metalheads across the nation who wanted the tour to hit more cities.

I’ve seen some reactions from fans who aren’t in total agreement with this touring line-up, stating that not every band on the bill fits the “Big 4” mold. I happened to think it’s a great bill, but I’ve wondered what other bands would fit nicely on this tour.

So, if The Big 4 Tour was actually The Big 8 Tour, what four additional bands do you think deserve to be on it?

Check out my picks below and let me know what yours would be.

Video: Kirk Hammett’s Birthday Concert + King Diamond Performs With Metallica

On November 18th, [my boyfriend] Kirk Hammett performed with Metallica in Tulsa, OK, on his 46th birthday. Some video was captured of the lead guitarist playing “Seek and Destroy” while the road crew ambushed him in celebration with silly-string.

Watch the video here below of the event and see how Kirk manages to continue playing the song — and doing the lead! — even though he and his guitar are covered with the sticky substance and he’s continuously getting strayed with the stuff. Now that’s talent.

Another video below is of Mercyful Fate frontman King Diamond performing with the “Mercyful Fate” medley with Metallica at the Ozzfest this summer.

One of the greatest pieces, if not the greatest piece, on Metallica’s 1998 double album of covers tunes, Garage Inc., was the track titled “Mercyful Fate.” The track was actually a medley of songs from Danish metal band: “Satan’s Fall,” “Curse of the Pharaoh,” “A Corpse Without Soul,” “Into the Coven,” and “Evil.”
