KING DIAMOND - Fatal Portrait LP (Black Vinyl)
Single sleeve, insert with lyrics, Metal Blade poly-lined inner-sleeve, mp3 download card.
This is the beginning of a band that would define heavy metal for generations. Love him or hate him, King Diamond's influence cannot be debated. With this album we see the creation of epic heavy metal. King Diamond made heavy metal music that could not be lumped into the just mindless noise that the parents of my generation thought it was. Instead he made it an art form and he was, and still is, a master of his art. This album is essential for any metal head. If you don't own this album, what the fuck are you waiting for?
