Maybe so, but of all of them Abigail was the one King solo album that could compete with the best Fate stuff out there.

I guess if one were to do it in a roundabout way, but lets be frank here Abigail on its best spin doesn't have the lasting power of "Come to the Sabbath", "Into the coven", "Satan's fall", "The Oath", there is a certain level of listenability of course but just not even the same level of power.

There's a case for a better and more convincing vision on Abigail. And for me Abigail will always be darker than anything Fate did (admittedly largely because when it came out I was very young and it made kind of that impression on me.) Agreed with you that the theatrics are more evident, but something I would personally count as a very significant plus. It lasts as well as any of the best Fate material imo. It really is that good.

Too each their own really I used to absolutely loathe King diamond for his vocals, and it was MF that won me over more so than his solo career. As for the Ghost hate, aww come on guys they are so easy to pick on.

Yes, it just smacks of backlash against their popularity to me.

Google says one of the guys in Repugnant (? who are they?) 'owns' the publishing name that Ghost tracks are registered under.



Yeah that's them.


Supposedly they also feature members of In Solitude, Watain and possibly Nifelheim though.

You might like In Solitude actually, not sure about the others though, can't imagine they would be your cup of tea. The drummer in Nifelheim (and possibly Ghost) is ex Entombed/Face Down/Krux fella Peter Stjärnvind aka 'Insulter Of Jesus Christ!'

The guy who replaced Nicke? Decent. Might check out In Solitude at some stage, then.

Yeah that is the fellow. Now proudly sporting a skullet, with his sideburns and tache combo ("for the German thrash market") Rather fetching I'd say. Top drummer though.

Just listening to In Solitude's To Her Darkness now, it's not bad. Serious Mercyful Fate worship, though.

Yeah, pretty much. Like the first (and best) Portrait album, that was even more Fate like. Good stuff though, if not exactly the most original.

Further investigation may be warranted.

Nothing wrong with that.

In Solitude's second album sucked, but their first album was a bit darker and less poppy compared to their newest piece of shit.

Tomo beat me to it.

I couldn't remember what Abigail sounded like, so I listened to it two or three times last night. I liked the music, but King's vocals remain an acquired taste. You know what it reminded me of? Mourning Has Broken. Except not as good, obviously.
