I absolutely love “Dead Again, and “In The Shadows”. I have to be completely honest here, these two releases are some of Mercyful Fates strongest ever….
Don’t let the bad reviews on here decide for you. I’m not sure what those other fans were listening to, but I’ve been a big fan of King Diamond and Mercyful Fate since the “Fatal Portrait”, and “Don’t Break The Oath” days….
This is pure brilliance as far as I’m concerned. The hooks are awesome, and the guitaring is some of the best, most creepy sounding I’ve ever heard. H. Sherman and M. Denner together is pure magic, and the songs are crafted very well. The production is excellent as usual…
I think these two releases are the best Mercyful Fate has released since “Mellissa”. There is just something about these that keep me coming back for more. It’s a very well rounded, and musically incredible CD….
I highly recommend picking both of them up….
Forget about “9″ or “Time”. “Dead Again” and “Shadows” rule!!!
