2000, Metal Blade

King Diamond - House of God

King Diamond is is without a doubt one of the biggest names in metal as well as one of the most influential musicians ever. While King released 2 disappointing albums, The Graveyard and Spider’s Lullaby, he redeemed himself with Voodoo. House Of God is the follow up to Voodoo, and a great follow up it is. I don’t want to give the story away, because I don’t want to ruin it for those who haven’t heard what the story is about. “The Trees Have Eyes”, “Help!!!”, “Goodbye” are just a few of the great songs on this 13 song album. The production is great. The guitar work of Andy La Roque and Glen Drover is very superb, with excellent lead work by the both of them, and the rhythm section keeps everything going smoothly. The vocals of King Diamond are always excellent. So all in all this album is worth the addition to your collection.
