Have you ever wanted to see what a video about a guys crazy grandma would be like?
Well you’re in luck. King Diamond’s album “Them” told an epic tale about a family and their grandmother in a way only King Diamond can pull off. As a long time fan of Mercyful Fate when ‘Them’ came out I was stoked beyond belief and it completely delivered. Conspiracy came out 1 year later and was a solid follow-up record but Them set the bar high.
For King Diamond 2017 was spent on tour and he did an entire series of shows, entitled the King Diamond Abigail Tour where the entire show, set, and setlist was the full playing of Abigail. AMAZING MOMENT OF METAL.
Who is King Diamond?
King Diamond is a Danish heavy metal band formed in 1985 by vocalist King Diamond, guitarists Andy LaRocque and Michael Denner, bassist Timi Hansen and drummer Mikkey Dee. Diamond, Denner and Hansen had recently departed the group Mercyful Fate, and decided to form a new band under the King Diamond moniker, as it was already known from the Mercyful Fate days.
