Auch der dänische, dunkle Metal Lord KING DIAMOND begeht Halloween mit einem „Bang“ und veröffentlicht ein brandneues Video zu seiner 2019er Single `Masquerade Of Madness´. Zudem ist der Song ab sofort als 12″ Vinyl LP mit den beiden Livetracks `Welcome Home (Live at Graspop)´ und `Arrival (Live at Graspop)´ bestellbar. Diese enthält außerdem eine Papiermaske als Sammlerstück und wird in vier verschiedenen Farbvarianten erhältlich sein.
Der King hat Folgendes dazu zu sagen:
„Masquerade of Madness‘ was released digitally in 2019 before our North American tour. During rehearsals, we took one full day to film ‚Masquerade of Madness‘ with David Brodsky and Allison Woest. We spent all day and all night recording while performing the song with our full tour stage show choreography. After the tour, covid happened.
The video was all but forgotten as the world came to a standstill – we never saw a single frame from all the footage. Years later, as things began to pick up and writing began for both new Mercyful Fate and King Diamond records, we wondered, what happened to that video from four years ago? So we decided to check in with David Brodsky and a couple of weeks later, we had the first cut of the video.
I was speechless! I had nothing to criticize and after just a few notes from Andy LaRocque, the video for ‚Masquerade of Madness‘ was finished! There’s so much mood and black and white is used in a perfect way with Jodi’s performances. The visuals fit the music flawlessly and this is now among my favorite King Diamond videos along with ‚Sleepless Nights‘ and ‚Welcome Home‘ – and not to forget of course, our double live DVD.
This new video and the release of ‚Masquerade of Madness‘ on 12″ vinyl is our Halloween gift to the fans. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do! Happy Halloween, it’s not just a dream!“
