MERCYFUL FATE Dead Again
Picture disc pressing. Not many bands can claim to be as influential as Mercyful Fate. As one of the early purveyors of true metal, the band’s impact is felt far and wide; from the new wave of black metals’ Cradle Of Filth and Dimmu Borgir to international metal gods Megadeth and Metallica. 1998’s Dead Again is the band’s second to last album and first sans founding guitarist Michael Denner who is replaced here by Candlemass’ Mike Wead. However, King Diamond always delivers and the Danish heavy metal legends don’t miss a beat on powerful epics like “The Lady Who Cries” and “Sucking on Your Blood.” Vibrant picture disc pressing with original artwork by acclaimed Swedish artist Kristian Wåhlin.
