A live recording of the King Diamond track "Mansion In Darkness" has been posted online in MP3 format here.

"Mansion In Darkness" comes off the band's upcoming double live CD, "Deadly Lullabyes Live" (view cover), due on September 21 through Metal Blade Records. The album was recorded during the band's last U.S. tour and was mixed at guitarist Andy LaRocque's Los Angered studio outside Gothenburg, Sweden.

Regarding the upcoming live CD, vocalist King Diamond recently stated:

The new double live album simply KICKS ASSSSSSS!!!! Top-notch performance by everyone involved, including our amazing audiences. I don't think I have ever heard the old classic Diamond songs performed this well and this close to the originals. I speak for everyone when I say, that we have never had as much fun on stage as we had on this last tour, and it shows when you listen to the album. This is the ultimate King Diamond line-up at work ON STAGE. For my own part, my voice is stronger than ever, and singing old songs like 'Welcome Home' gives me more pleasure today than ever before. It's all there for our fans to hear, a King Diamond show from beginning to end, raw, in your face, loud, moody, brutal, horror, and awesome audience sing-alongs. It's King Diamond live!
