“Mercyful Fate is dead, long live the King” was last year’s slogan, when the “Fatal Portrait” album by Denmark’s pride KING DIAMOND stole the hearts of a great many Metal-Fans. Now, with their latest release “Abigail”, KING DIAMOND finally show their superior form and present a concept-album featuring a horror-story that would even frighten Stephen King himself! Add some world-class heavy metal/hardrock to all this, and you will agree that KING DIAMOND have reached the top of the world with “Abigail”.
