A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

  • Jan 9, 2013

Mercyful Fate's "Melissa" has been considered a classic in the heavy metal community for many years, and for good reason, this album kicks ass.

This album showed off the power in King Diamond's piercing falsetto vocals, which absolutely ooze of the heavy metal spirit and perfectly fit the dark, creepy tales in these songs.  The lead guitar by Michael Denner and Hank Sherman is nothing short of amazing, especially the guitar solos.  The music contained is loaded with power and is pretty damn creepy.  Some of the best songs on this masterpiece are "Curse of the Pharaohs," "Into the Coven," "At the Sound of the Demon Bell," and "Satan's Fall."

Roadrunner Records reissued "Melissa" with "The Beginning," and I urge all metalheads to go get this 2-for-1 deal ASAP.
