Mercyful Fate
Dead Again (Metal Blade)

By: Jeb Branin

If you are a fan of M.F. they are going to deliver for you each and every time. Their seminal metal stylings are, and have always been, a love 'em or hate 'em proposition. Classic metal style, stellar musicianship, hard as nails riffs, tight delivery, and, of course, King's distinctive voice. In fact, for MF it'll always come down to King's voice. Some metalheads live for it other can't bear the screeching and whining. I must admit that after more than a decade of of listening to King, I have finally gotten to where I can stand him. He doesn't annoy me anywhere near as much as he used to. A lot of that is due to his ever increasing use of double tracked vocals where he allows his lower register to offset his high pitched wailings. MF are stalwarts in the scene and this is a classic example of their sound. (Metal Blade/2828 Cochran Street/Suite 302/Simi Valley, CA 93065-2793 -- http://www.metalblade.com)
