Fatal Portrait

King Diamond's first solo effort, 1985's Fatal Portrait, was a transitional album: still rooted in the satanically-bent heavy metal of his former group Mercyful Fate, but already showing signs of the theatrical and conceptual elements that the King would soon master like few before him. Indeed, the album's opening four-song suite: "The Candle," "The Jonah," "The Portrait," and "Dressed in White," denote King Diamond's first efforts to weave his horror stories over multiple, interrelated tracks. But compared to future triumphs in gothic storytelling, these are merely rough sketches, a simple dress rehearsal performed rather covertly — just in case the idea didn't succeed as planned. Sure enough, Fatal Portrait's original second vinyl side returned to a more familiar (and safe) track-by-track approach, and it must be said standout numbers like "Lurking in the Dark," "Halloween," and "Haunted" are arguably the better for it. Diamond can be heard experimenting with ever more vocal styles, spread across ever expanding layers of harmony lines with himself; but it's the new lead guitar tandem of Swedish "axepert" Andy LaRocque and former Fate member Michael Denner who take center stage here, their distinctive riffs and solos well and truly carrying the day. A fine album by any definition, Fatal Portrait is also required listening — a bridge, really — for MF fans, who will enjoy this final glimpse at glories past while getting a smoother transition into the ensuing operas of terror. [CD reissues of Fatal Portrait were enhanced by the excellent bonus cut "The Lake" and, depending on the version, the hilariously twisted holiday send-up "No Presents for Christmas."]


Immer wieder gern

Ich liebe dieses erste Album nach wie vor schade nur dass ein Song am schluss hoppelt.Ein Album für alle die gern hohe wie tiefe Töne im Wechsel hören halt Metal ohne Trash mit viel echtem Ton ohne groß Schnick Schnack. Wer auf sinnvolle Texte steht kommt hier voll auf seine kosten ...

Widely regarded as the finest vocalist in all of metal (who possesses a multi-octave range), theatrical rocker King Diamond first rose to prominence as a member of Mercyful Fate before launching a solo career on his own. Born Kim Bendix Petersen in Denmark on June 14, 1956, the future King Diamond was originally drawn to theatrically based hard rock due to such trailblazers as Alice Cooper, and soon began fronting local bands in the '70s, including a punk metal outfit called the Brats. Shortly thereafter,...
