29 Years Ago: KING DIAMOND release Abigail (you must rest in shame)

“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”.
