okay fuck me its ogg format. just covert it. it sounds way better.


Okay, so if I was going to post a song from this band, I probably should've done Satan's Fall. It is pretty long however.
Mercyful Fate is a Heavy Metal band from Denmark that formed in 1980, fronted by the extremely talented vocalist King Diamond. Along with Venom, Mercyful Fate's mixture of evil riffs and Satanic/occult lyrics helped inspire the Black Metal bands of the 80's, though their music isn't usually considered "Black Metal."
This song, Into the Coven, is pretty interesting. It starts out with classical renissance-y guitar stuff then descends into chaos and lots of banshee opera singing. Some of the more humorous lyrics are "Undress until you're naked...howl like a wolf and a witch will open the door" Me making fun of them aside, it is pretty awesome.
