King Diamond was a special guest on Eddie’s podcast which is up now.
Frank Injection of Metal Injection has posted some highlights from the interview.
Eddie: You mentioned Mercyful Fate a few times. Where are you at with those guys? Are you in touch with them still… is there any chance that you work with those guys again in any capacity?
KD: There’s always a chance. Absolutely is there a chance. I mean, I love Mercyful Fate; there’s no doubt about it. King Diamond is number one for me. It has all the theatrics and all the different kinds of musical styles that go with that. I mean when I say “theatrics” that’s also for the music because we get more & we use more different instruments when we do King Diamond because it’s such, uh, when you tell stories you get really into being theatrical on the musical parts as well. Mercy is a little bit more straight forward even though we’re very progressive. But definitely. I talk a lot with Hank, especially, you know, with Michael Denner sometimes. Timmy, not so often, but I still might see Timmy when we start rehearsing here. He was there with his daughter two years ago when we were rehearsing in Denmark at the time. So I see the guys. I mean, they come by when we play.
Brian Slagel: By the way King, just so you know, I’m gonna make sure that there’s Mercyful Fate stuff happening.
Eddie: There again is the label chiming in.
Slagel: Well, no, it’s not the label. It’s from the fans’ POV. There’s gonna be Mercyful Fate tours and things happening. I mean, not tours, but shows in the future. I’m gonna make it happen.
