Biography

King Diamond is the band that King Diamond (Kim Petersen) formed after he left Mercyful Fate which eventually caused the remaining members to split up(although Michael Denner and Timi Hansen were also members of King Diamond) - following the departure of Hank Shermann. Although the first incarnation of King Diamond featured members of Mercyful Fate, the band lost most of its proto-black metal style and become a heavy metal band. The Satanic focus of Mercyful Fate's lyrics was replaced by a focus on horror stories. Apart from two albums, each of the albums contained a story told throughout the songs; some stories span more than one album. Only Fatal Portrait and The Spider's Lullaby deviate here, in that only four of the songs form a story while the other songs are independent. His extremely high falsetto vocal style is notable.

    Lyrics
    The darkness came closer to home, on the following night
    And Miriam slept like a rock, when Jonathan's face went white
    The bedroom was ice cold, but the fire was burning still
    The blinding light, the family ghost, had risen again, the Ghost
    Don't be scared, don't be scared now, my friend

    Lyrics
    Riding up the alley in the rain
    No lights to show the way
    How could this ever be their home
    Through the darkness You could only see
    A giant shadow which was to be

    Lyrics
    That must be it
    Through the summer rain of 1845
    The coach had finally arrived
    To the valley where the crossroads meet below
    And where all darkness seems to grow
