MERCYFUL FATE Melissa (1983) (CAROLINE RECORDS) (7 TRACKS) 320 Kbps MP3 ALBUM

Melissa (1983) (CAROLINE RECORDS) (7 TRACKS) 
Mercyful Fate

Album Description:

MELISSA is the debut album of Danish heavy metal band Mercyful Fate released in 1983. It was the first album released by Roadrunner Records. Music is credited to Hank Shermann and lyrics to King Diamond.

One of the most important metal bands of the 1980''s, Mercyful Fate took the gloom and doom of Black Sabbath, infused it with the faster tempos of Judas Priest, and added the complexity of prog rock. Meshing the sinister riffs and vibrant guitar harmonies of Michael Denner and Hank Shermann with the sterling rhythm section of bassist Timi Hansen and drummer Kim Ruzz, then topping it all off with the ghostly baritone and infamous falsetto of King Diamond, Denmark''s renowned Satanic quintet took dark metal to a whole new level. Five-minute gems like "Evil" and "At the Sound of the Demon Bell" feature enough ideas for two separate numbers apiece, with the band creatively using unexpected rhythmic and dynamic changes and unconventional song structures. The album''s standout is the radical epic "Satan''s Fall," which exceeds 11 minutes and only repeats the introductory section twice, with every new movement presenting something new. But even on the short and sweet "Black Funeral," Mercyful Fate make the most of the material. Even if one cannot get past Diamond''s Satanic lyrical musings, the band''s music makes for a potent listening experience, one that can certainly grow addicting for those who prefer their metal black, heavy and intricate.

Mercyful Fate: King Diamond (vocals); Hank Shermann (guitars); Michael Denner (guitars); Timi "Grabber" Hansen (bass); Kim Ruzz (drums).

Recorded at Easy Sound Recording, Copenhagen, Denmark, July 1983.
