Mercyful Fate - Time LP
Vinyl LP pressing. Fronted by theatrical rocker King Diamond before and in the midst of his celebrated solo career, 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. Metal Blade is pleased to offer up a vinyl re-pressing of Mercyful Fate's 1994 album Time, the group's fourth full-length overall and second release following a near decade hiatus. King Diamond, guitarists Michael Dennerand Hank Sherman, bassist Sharlee D'Angelo, and drummer Snowy Shaw are in prime early-80s form on seminal Mercyful Fate numbers like "Nightmare Be Thy Name" and "Witches Dance," proving that they were indeed back and better than ever.
