As reported earlier, the legendary KING DIAMOND has received a Grammy Nomination for Best Metal Performance for the track 'Never Ending Hill' off their latest album Give Me Your Soul… Please.

King comments on his band's nomination:
“It’s a great honour to be picked as a nominee; it’s totally shocking and unexpected. We do feel as a band that this is the best album we have ever done. Hopefully there will be many more albums and tours to come. We feel that we have at least another good 10 years in us! This nomination is a testament to our legion of loyal fans and our thanks go out to them for the endless support and all of the kind words.”

Metal Blade owner and CEO Brian Slagel comments on having two bands nominated for this year's Grammy Awards:
“All of us at Metal Blade Records are extremely honoured to have two of our artists, AS I LAY DYING and King Diamond, nominated for Grammy awards. They both truly deserve this honour for the great artistry they have accomplished on these tremendous releases.”

King Diamond’s Give Me Your Soul… Please was released on June 26th 2007 and came in at #174 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart! Give Me Your Soul… Please is a blistering metal horror-opera concept album that draws from themes from the occult and both King Diamond’s personal life, after-life experiences, as well as King Diamond’s signature dark imagination. The result is a montage of murder mysteries meets nightmare dream sequences wrapped in a proto-power-metal soundtrack. As King describes it, “Give Me Your Soul… Please is a horror murder mystery story mixed with reality from beginning to end.”

It's about time KD got the respect he deserves, although I do wish it were with Mercyful Fate. Been a huge fan since 1981!
