Roadrunner & Artist News


Posted on March 22, 2013

To celebrate the release of the 7 epic Complete Roadrunner Collection Box Sets we are rocking a different playlist each day this week. On the doom box today we have prolific Danish heavy metallers King Diamond!

Click here to listen to the Spotify playlist which kicks off with 'Abigail'  from 1987s album of the same name. 'Abigail' is the bands second album & first concept album. 'Welcome Home' is taken from King Diamond's 1988 release 'Them'. The album was the first instalement of two fictional concept albums about insanity. 'A Mansion In The Darkness' also featured on 'Abigail' which was based on the ficitional story of a young couple in a haunted mansion. 'Eye Of The Witch' opens the bands 1990 release & final album with Roadrunner Records - 'The Eye'. The playlist climaxes with 'The Portrait' from the band's debut album 'Final Portrait' which was released in 1986 after King Diamond, Michael Denner & Timi Hansen had left black metallers Mercyful Fate to form King Diamond.
