Rated 4/5 (80%) (4 Votes)

This is a short little indie album that is basically one guy paying homage to the sound of classic Mercyful Fate and fucking nailing it. It can't be an accident, as every aspect is here, not one detail missed. The riffs are good, the production has that vintage '80s echo sound, and the vocals go from that King Diamond growl, to the King Diamond falsetto, to the slightly stuffy-sounding King Diamond midrange. It's so close you could be persuaded it actually is King Diamond. Put together it makes for an old-school sound that nobody else is really hitting these days, and I like it.
