After years of waiting and begging, fans are finally getting a new King Diamond album
It has been close to 11 years since the last time Satanic shock rocker King Diamond wrote, recorded, and released a brand new studio album. His last outing was 2007’s Give Me Your Soul…Please.
Now however, it appears as though the heavy metal royalty is not going to be making his followers wait quite as long as people have waited for a new Tool album as he has just announced that a brand new album is close to 80% of the way done.
In a recent interview on Eddie Trunk’s SiriusXM radio show while promoting his upcoming concert DVD Abigail in Concert that his guitarist was coming down to record, saying:
“As soon as the DVD is finished — it’ll be a matter of two or three weeks — [King Diamond guitarist Andy La Rocque] is showing up here [in Frisco, Texas] to initiate my home studio where I’m gonna do all the vocals for a brand new King Diamond studio album.”
Diamond also went into some of the creative details of the creation of the upcoming yet to be titled album, saying:
“There’s some very unique things I’m putting into it this time where you will relate to some of the sounds you hear on it, ’cause it’s sounds that you will hear on certain days in your private life. You’re outdoors, or whatever, and you might hear certain sounds and you will, guaranteed, think, if you heard the album, ‘I wonder if that thing King talked about could have happened when I heard that sound here.'”
There is no word on when the album will be released, what any of the track titles will be, nor any other details at press time.
Keep up with music at Salute.
