When I saw this thread I thought it was the title of his new album about a haunted shoe possessed by the spirit of a dead witch. Disappointing.

We won't be seeing a new King Diamond until sometime in 2012 i don't think. King hasn't mentioned that he is working on new material yet, and it takes him longer to write albums now than it did before. at best we can hope for a late 2011 release.

Longer than that, possibly. He's had triple bypass surgery after mutiple heart attacks:

Quote:
Hi Everyone,

Livia here.

Let me catch you all up on the past couple of weeks' happenings, because it affects many things.

On Monday the 29th of November, King had to be transported to the nearby hospital by ambulance. After several different tests were done and the EKG machine showing abnormalities, the doctors recommended that he get a cardiac catheterization.

Cardiac catheterization is a procedure where the doctors lead a very thin tube up from the leg and into the heart, where it injects dye into the bloodstream. Then a camera at the end of the tube takes many pictures of the heart's arteries, looking for blockages.

After this was done, they determined that King had several heart attacks, and three of his heart's arteries were the cause: one was completely blocked, the second was 90% blocked, and the third was 65% blocked.

The only solution to this was an open heart triple bypass surgery.

.....

King's surgery took approximately 7 hours.

Everything went well, and King was taken to ICU for recovery. He was walking and eating solid food already 2 days after the operation, and he was the first one in the history of the hospital who walked on his own power from the ICU to normal care. 10 days after the ambulance took him to the emergency room, he is at home and is recovering well. It will be a few months before he feels completely normal and is without pain.

.....

In light of this, he will be taking a break from music and the music business altogether until further notice.

He very much wants to write new music, finish the DVDs, and go on tour, but for now, all those things are in the distant future and he's not thinking about them.

Please understand that the King Diamond band is not stopping, disbanding or anything of the sort. King's health is first priority, and when everything is going good with him, the music will resume.

Thank you all very much for reading this and STAY HEAVY,

Livia

Seems to be recovering well:

Hi Everyone,

Some of you have been asking for an update on King's health, so I thought I'll write what's been going on.

King has just finished his Cardiac Rehabilitation program this past Friday, and graduated with flying colors. Thanks to the wonderful people at the rehab center, his exercise regimen helpe him gain a lot of muscle, and start on the road of building up good endurance.

We will start regular exercises now to get the endurance up to nice levels.

The examinations by his heart surgeon and cardiologist revealed that his health is steadily improving, and they all expect him to feel better than ever, 15 years younger than he really is.

I am immensely proud of what he has achieved in these short 3 months, stopped smoking entirely, changed diet and doing regular exercise among other things.

I cannot say anything certain about when he will be back working on King Diamond related things, but he is looking forward to finishing the DVDs eventually, and he is most certainly not stopping music.

I hope this information was helpful, I can honestly say that his progress has been nothing short of amazing. He is the strongest person I know.

He would also like to extend his huge gratitude to all of you, for your absolutely amazing support. It has really meant a lot to him.

Enjoy his Cardiac Rehabilitation "graduation" picture below.

Cheers and Stay Heavy,

Livia

I'm sure he'll be taking it easy for a bit. Wouldn't surprise me though.

I'm usually skeptical on making a new topic as my first topic was far from original and brought a few murmurs, but I'm glad this one has brought a smile to at least one ugly mug :)

All hail to the King. Doubt he will come here, but fingers crossed. Glad to see he is doing well though.

Same here, when I hear about Ghost I hear a lot of people say how Papa has effectively replaced KD but I'd like them both on top of the Metal scene.

Who says that? 15 years that just got into metal yesterday? ;)

Ghost are closer to old Mercyful Fate than King Diamond anyway, so no, King has not been 'replaced'. how absurd! :D
