Heavy metal icon King Diamond has checked in with a message regarding future material, DVD releases and more. It reads as follows:
"As you all know 80% of the original MERCYFUL FATE line-up (King Diamond, Hank Shermann, Michael Denner and Timi Hansen) re-recorded with present MF drummer Bjarne T. Holm two ultimate Mercy classics for the upcoming METALLICA: Guitar Hero game. For those who aren’t into gaming it’s interesting to know that those two songs (‘Evil’ and ‘Curse Of The Pharaohs’) will be released on iTunes round mid April.
"Also interesting to know that Andy LaRocque mastered these two tracks for a possible EP-picture, released by Metal Blade and Massacre.
"At this moment we are working on both Mercyful Fate and King Diamond DVD’s. Both releases will contain two DVD’s and it will be worth the wait as it has some very exclusive content which surely no one outside the band has ever seen.
"We have been working on the following concerts. Please note content of the DVD’s might change. Concerts mentioned here might after all not appear on the DVD.
Mercyful Fate DVD:
Copenhagen 1982 with Benny Petersen
Amsterdam Paradiso 1984
Reunion MF 1993
Roskilde Festival 1994
King Diamond DVD:
1987 supporting MOTÖRHEAD
Show footage 1989 USA + backstage footage
Full 1990 concert Spain Euro Conspiracy tour
Behind the scenes 1990 Conspiracy
Kopenhagen concert in the Park 1990 with 5 cameras
"Also remastered King Diamond CD’s are in the works. Those albums have, next to the new masters, also one or two bonus video tracks. The bonus tracks shouldn’t be the reason to buy the albums. The sound is so much better than it ever was. That should be reason to buy it. I know I would buy them.
"Remastered CD’s released with video bonus footage (might be one or two songs)
The Spider’s Lullabye
House Of God
"This coming autumn might be the time to start writing new songs for King Diamond, and who knows if our involvement in Guitar Hero will raise our value to the record labels enough for a new Mercyful Fate record."
