Albenrezension

The birth of thrash metal can be pinpointed to three specific bands — Motörhead, Venom, and Mercyful Fate — with the latter two outfits single-handedly creating the darker "black metal" genre. Fronted by vocal acrobat King Diamond (a chap who had a soft spot for Alice Cooper, as evidenced by his use of makeup and on-stage theatrics), the Danish group combined the speed of Judas Priest with the doom of Black Sabbath, and helped influence a legion of subsequent metal bands — everyone from Metallica to Dimmu Borgir. Due to their importance and influence, the group made a logical choice for a "best-of treatment" when Roadrunner Records began assembling such sets for their catalog artists of yesteryear. The 14-track collection focuses on the group's early releases, 1983's Melissa, 1984's Don't Break the Oath, and 1987's The Beginning, the latter just so happens to have been recorded during their "classic" period. Highlights include all five songs that Metallica later covered as part of their "Mercyful Fate" medley on 1998's Garage, Inc. ("Satan's Fall," "Curse of the Pharaohs," "A Corpse Without Soul," "Into the Coven," and "Evil"), as well as such other highlights as "Return of the Vampire," "Doomed by the Living Dead," and "Black Funeral," among others. If you're a fan of dark metal and are unfamiliar with Mercyful Fate, it's time to check out the genre's godfathers, and this Best of is a fine place to start.

Mercyful Fate won a large cult following thanks to their dramatic lyrics, showing a Gothic obsession with evil and the occult, and Diamond's amazing vocal range, which shifted from a low growl to a banshee scream, plus the interplay of Shermann and Denner. The band broke up after two full-length albums owing to differences of opinion about what direction the group should...
