Micro: In Solitude, The World. The Flesh. The Devil
They’re Mercyful Fate with better production and a singer that’s not so over-the-top (said with love: I saw King Diamond both on the Abigail tour as well as Conspiracy); the most salient point is– they actually write songs. Verse, chorus, hooks– the whole nine.
The riffs are nearly textbook NWOBHM, but you’ll hum them for days. If you have to get only one: “To Her Darkness.” Two: add “Dance of the adversary.” Three: “The World, The Flesh, The Devil.”
Throw up your horns, pull up your denim jacket and BANG IT, brother!
