Another pathetic excuse for Roadrunner to try to make more money off a band they barely tried to promote when they had ‘em under their wing. I give it three stars for the band and music. But this release is superfluous as most fans already have these albums.

these are the first cds that I ever got from King and I was blown away by them. The story on Fatal Portrait is somewhat week with the exception of the fourth track, which sadily isn’t that good sounding of a song. And Halloween is another song that just comes off alittle stupid. Other than that the album is great though. Now moving onto Abigail… NOT A BAD TRACK ON HERE!!! The standout tracks are “the arrival” and ‘mansion in darkness”
It’s King Diamond!! double bass, smoking guitar licks and Kings awesome Opra voice
complete another brutal massacre scene!!!!
getting two great King Diamond albums Abigail and Fatal Portrait. Abigail is most likely King Diamond’s definitive album and shows him and the band at their best. As with all the KD albums, the storyline is the best part and Abigail has a haunting classic story that will definately keep you listening to the whole album. Fatal Portrait isn’t is good as Abigail but has it’s moments and is a good album with a creepy story. The reason I gave this package 3 stars is because the CDs didn’t come with the lyrics which was a disappointment.
