He hasn't released anything in a while, but I'd say that the last two King albums are better than Opus Eponymous, and the one before that was as good.

Yes. ^ Happy's point stands. King and Fate are on hiatus more or less. Ghost are filling that void while they're out of the picture.

Re: the debut, it's better than most of the King solo albums pretty much. :) But not Fate of course.


Although I do think this is a fair but admirably bold statement KD's albums have stood the test of time, Where as Opus Eponymous is still recent.

KD's albums have stood the test of time? What? All of them? There's nothing outside of the 80's that's really essential imo.

Exactly. That's why the comparisons are ineffectual.

Has to be someone from In Solitude anyway. They use a lot of the same musical ideas.

I think there all private kind of people and that's fine with me... personally if I had that type of talent I'd have myself printed in magazine's left right and centre pulling absurd faces.

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

...and Happy's point is proven here really as the topic of Ghost takes over the thread i.e. that they are taking his mantle. And most on here know about King's real influence and status a hell of a lot more than the "yoof" would.

Much as I don't like KD/Fate, I am glad he is obviously well enough to tour 'cause wasn't he really ill recently?

Comparing them is kind of pointless. Mercyful Fate were an innovative band that influenced a countless number of bands in a whole bunch of different metal subgenres. Ghost are a derivative band paying tribute to their metal heroes.

Ghost=Daniel Sun. King Diamond's=Mr. Miyagi

To be a truly great band you have to do more than just write good songs.

King Diamond is a boring band, Abigail is great for the piece of novelty music it is- but Mercyful fate is timeless compared to this dull band.

I always saw it more as he leaned on theatrics and shittier musical quality than compared to his stint in Mercyful fate. The music isn't as heavy, as dark, and altogether less memorable than his prior material in Mercyful fate.
