Heavy metal legend King Diamond is getting ready to unleash his new DVD/Blu-ray, Songs For The Dead Live, on January 25th through Metal Blade Records. The release features concert footage filmed live at Belgium’s ‘Graspop Metal Meeting’ in June 2016 and Philadelphia’s Fillmore venue in November 2015.
Here’s more info via a press release:
There is only one King Diamond, and for more than thirty years the great Dane has been dropping classic albums and putting on shows fans remember for the rest of their lives. Perhaps the only downside to having such a formidable catalogue is that there are just too many great songs to fit into a single set. However, you would be hard-pressed to find a fan who wouldn’t want to hear 1987’s seminal Abigail in its entirety, and Songs For The Dead Live captures this, twice, and in very different locales. The performances of the all-star lineup of musicians, comprising of guitarists Andy LaRocque and Mike Wead, bassist Pontus Egberg and drummer Matt Thompson, are absolutely ferocious, hammering home every single moment.
To celebrate, an official record release bash will be held in Brooklyn at Saint Vitus on February 6 at 7 PM. The event, featuring a special message from King Diamond, an appearance by “Abigail” and a showing of both shows from Songs For The Dead Live, is free to the public.
To attend, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
