LP | "Abigail"
2020 | METAL BLADE RECORDS
COLOUR: Opaque Light Blue Marbled
After the legendary Metal band MERCYFUL FATE from Denmark broke up, their frontman KING DIAMOND created the same called band in the year 1985. The person KING DIAMOND is very polarising, his gothic, "occult" make up and his obscure singing style are some of the main reasons that made this group very popular, for those who don´t know they play classic sometimes symphonic Heavy Metal, very powerful and crushing. The partly high pitched vocals of Mr. KING DIAMOND make their music very outstanding, not the typical stuff most Metal fans are listening too.
"Abigail" is the second KING DIAMOND album and their first concept album. It was released in 1987 on ROADRUNNER RECORDS, after that there were several re-releases, first in 1997 with 4 bonus tracks, and then a 25th anniversary edition in 2005 with a bonus DVD. This album has sold over 175000 copies in North America alone. "Abigail" is the last album to feature guitarist Michael Denner and bassist Timi Hansen.
In the year 1987 ROADRUNNER RECORDS from The Netherlands did the first pressing of this album.
Re-issue on Opaque Light Blue Marbled vinyl, this version is limited to 300 numbered copies, it comes with lyric insert and free mp3 download card.
