Mercyful Fate Melissa on Limited Edition 180g LP

Limited Edition Pressing of 1500 Copies

2013 marked the 30th anniversary of Mercyful Fate's 1983 debut Melissa. One of the earliest Roadrunner releases, and the first to truly break the label out of the metal underground, it remains an astonishingly powerful record. Musically, it's a landmark, too. The twin guitar leads of Michael Denner and Hank Shermann, bolstered by the locked-in rhythm section of bassist Timi Hansen and drummer Kim Ruzz, created a powerful new, thoroughly European metal sound that combined the heaviness and instrumental flourishes of Rainbow with the aggression of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. 

But it was vocalist King Diamond who truly captured the metal world's attention - the combination of his striking black-and-white face paint and his amazing voice, which could leap from a hideous growl to a piercing falsetto scream in a single measure, was impossible to ignore. And of course, the album is just jammed with classic tracks, from the opening one-two punch of "Evil" and "Curse of the Pharoahs" to the haunting, album-ending title song. Melissa is truly one of the greatest metal albums of all time reissued here on limited edition 180g vinyl of 1500 copies courtesy of Metal Blade Records.
