iTunes Review

Because Louisiana has a long tradition of haunted folklore and hidden black magic, it’s the perfect location for one of King Diamond’s album-length horror fantasies. Recorded in the middle of a mid-career renaissance, 1998’s Voodoo shows the band breathing life into their classic concepts. Set in 1932, the narrative follows a white family as they move into a colonial house on the Mississippi River and subsequently go to war with the house servants, who practice voodoo in a nearby burial ground. Evil mayhem ensues, and if you're at all familiar with King Diamond you shouldn’t have trouble guessing which side comes out on top. The atmospheric Southern location stokes the band’s creative juices, especially on the title song, which mixes skittering percussion with King Diamond’s monstrous riffs. There's a great diversity in musical styles, from the terrifying thrash of “LOA House” to the keyboard-driven arena rock of “Sending of Dead” and the Goth-tinged terror of “Sarah’s Night.” Even the interludes, like “Unclean Spirits,” are well crafted. The centerpiece is unquestionably “One Down Two to Go,” simultaneously King Diamond’s most tender ballad and their most explosive onslaught.

Customer Reviews

Top Notch!! Dimebag solo included!!!

My introduction to KingDiamond was a cassette of Them, so I've always been particular to that classic along with Abigail, his true finest album. This album, by far is one his all time greatest, based solely on the fact that it is conceptually different from all his other work. It has the signature vocals, and driving drum beats, but what sets this album apart is the title track. It features guitar work from the deceased Dimebag Darrel and is just crushing!!! I would recomend this album based on the down tunning, the concept, and the vocals. For the late 90's when rap metal was controlling things, King Diamond managed to tweak his sound just enough, without losing face, or selling out.

Excellent Album

Hey critic, what do you mean by that crack about his voice? I'd like to hear you sing like him. Oh yeah, that's right, there's only one King Diamond, and, he is the King of the concept album. No one on the planet, not even Rob Halford can match King Diamond's vocal range, and, I am a HUGE Judas Priest fan as well. King diamond has been and always will be tops in my book, and, that is all that matters to me.

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.
