King Diamond Speaks On Guitar Hero: Metallica

Heavy metal legend King Diamond will be a part of the forthcoming Guitar Hero: Metallica video game as a playable character aswell as having the song "Evil" from his old band Mercyful Fate included in the game. Speaking on the game he said: "It's been absolutely amazing to be a part of this Guitar Hero experience. It was quite a trip to re-record the song 'Evil' almost 25 years after the original recording took place. The end result with four out of the five original musicians turned out so much better than I would ever have hoped for. Seeing my animated character take form was totally eerie in a very good way. It's so strange to see yourself animated in such perfect detail - cross bone microphone, Eye necklace and all. This game looks and sounds METAL all the way. HORNS UP!!!"

Haha wow, that's pretty cool; but it won't be as funny as seeing King Diamond air guitar though.
