King Diamond has revealed to BW&BK that he's hoping to have retro Mercyful Fate and King Diamond DVDs released sometime in the future. The material, according to Diamond, is something "not even bootleg tape traders have seen."

Diamond says he been sent rare footage that has never circulated, including Mercyful Fate performances from 1982 and some of the first live King Diamond solo performances.

"I'm going to go through the 35 tapes soon and hand-pick the bits I like. Then I'm going to have a meeting with Brian Slagel (Metal Blade founder/president) to see if he's interested in releasing the DVDs."

When told that collectors will probably salivate at the prospect of these DVDs being released, Diamond was optimistic that the material will also appeal to more casual fans. "Some people don't trade bootlegs, it's not their thing," he says. "But they can also have fun watching these old, rare shows."
