Metal Blade To Reissue Classic King Diamond Albums
September 22, 2009
King Diamond is quite possibly the most recognizable and prolific personality ever in heavy metal. Revered by icons as big as Metallica and Pantera (R.I.P.) to inspiring new upstarts like Goatwhore; King Diamond, the man and the band, have left an indelible mark on the history, and now again, the future of heavy metal.

Reissued King Diamond albums 'The Spider's Lullabye' and 'The Graveyard' have both been re-mastered by King Diamond guitarist Andy LaRocque and are set to be released on October 13th. Each album will include bonus material that purchasers will be able to obtain digitally. Both 'The Spider's Lullabye' and 'The Graveyard' will include live “bootleg” versions (with video footage) of the following songs: 'The Spider's Lullabye' from the album of the same name, and ‘Trick Or Treat' and 'Up From The Grave' from 'The Graveyard'.

Andy LaRocque re-mastered both records and you can really hear more details and sounds that I remember recording but didn't come through in the original mastering. The records have much more bottom end this time around. There's even more details and clarity than the original version and you'll hear things you've never heard before in both releases. Andy did a great job re-mastering and improving these albums above and beyond my expectations. The artwork has also been completely redone for Spiders and Graveyard and is just amazing. I did not expect them to come out this good and am just completely thrilled with the result.

We originally were going to include bonus footage on the albums as a CD-ROM, but the sound and video quality was going to suffer tremendously and that is just unacceptable. Instead, the bonus footage is going to be available for download to those who purchase the albums. The video downloads will be available in multiple formats so everyone can see them” commented King Diamond.

It has also been confirmed that the two King Diamond songs, "Welcome Home" and "Cremation" will appear on the upcoming videogame, 'Brutal Legend', scheduled for release in October.

Both King Diamond and Mercyful Fate have worked out a deal with C1rca Shoes to have featured artwork on several of their sneakers, the first pair set to arrive in October 2009 with more to follow in 2010. Make sure to keep an eye on the official King Diamond/Mercyful Fate site http://www.covenworldwide.org/ for product details and updates.

Expect the first ever DVD from King Diamond as early as the winter 2009 or as late as early 2010.
