The 80’s Japan Heavy Metal scene is loaded with a ton of great bands and some of those bands are some of the very best bands in the world. To keep it simple this re-issue is for all the die-hard MERCYFUL FATE fans out there. There are very few vocalists in the world that have what I like to call an acrobatic ability. When I think of some of the best vocalists out there with that ability there are 3 names that spring to mind; King Diamond, which we all know, Jonathon Stewart (from SLAUTER XSTROYES and ENERGY VAMPIRES), which some of us know, and the guy in this band (GENOCIDE (Nippon), Toshihiro Takeuchi. Talk about dynamics, this guy has it all; melodic, imagination, crazy, high falsetto, and he does it in English and Japanese in the same song. That’s not all this band is good for though. The guitar players here are unbelievable! They’ve got an amazing style like Denner and Shermann once had back in the early MERCYFUL FATE days and a lot of their sound has a Doomy feel to it also. This is one of the very best hidden gems in all of Japan and I can strongly say that this is top 1-5 records (depending on my mood) of all-time that came out of that country. This re-issue will include re-issue artwork requested by the band and I can honestly say it’s one of the best Japanese looking metal album cover I’ve seen to this day. A big thank you goes out to Nicola Solieri for providing this amazing cover. Don’t worry nerds, I’ll provide the original cover on the flip side of the booklet. Expect a re-mastered sound with a booklet of photos, lyrics, and a full band history from the 70’s to today.

Awesome artwork! I have the original LP. To be honest, I would definitely get this re-issue if it were vinyl. I don't know how I feel yet about the CD. Especially since the great art will be so small! How much is this going to cost?

The tracks on their page are great; there's so much character in those vocals.

Glad people actually like the cover, the proper scan will be much better than that camera taken preview Wink

Double CD comes out probably July.

Vinyl, god knows when I'll have money... it seems like all my vinyl pressings have to be Double LP for some reason... and those are almost twice the cost of just a regular LP.

I don't have an exact price, but it certainly ain't gonna be that expensive.
