Limited edition vinyl LP picture disc pressing of the 2007 album from the Metal giant. King Diamond is well known for his fable for metaphysics and demonic stories, as well as his drive towards atmospheric horror scenarios and changing masks. He is one of the most outstanding personalities of today's Metal scene. After a break of three years King Diamond and his long-time partner Andy La Rocque once again recorded a masterpiece, which press already now describes as one of his best albums so far and which consequently follows the tremendous album The Puppetmaster. Horror metal at its very best. Long live the King! Massacre.

Production aside, this is my first King Diamond album. It has some of the most atmospheric and tasteful guitar work I have heard in a while. The vocals may initially be a put off for some, because there is quite a bit in the upper register. I personally love operatic metal vocals and found what he does here to be incredibly inventive......and creepy.
Yes, he is a LeVeyan Satanist. But this is not an album of indoctrination or unholy blasphemies. It is a conceptual masterpiece of a story.
I don't care if you worship God, Allah, Satan, Buddha or David Hasselhoff. You should pick this album up to appreciate the amazing musical art that it is.
King Diamond, the "godfather of classic power-metal", describes the new album as the best he's ever made, "It seems like we tried for 20 years to get a driver's license - and now we have one!"
He states that Give Me Your Soul is his best cd/album yet but he also says the same for Deadly Lullibyes also which was his support live album for The Puppet Master (do not get me wrong) I love most of King's stuff but can you really say the same thing for a studio album as that of a LIVE album because it's much harder to play live and make it work than a studio outing, I am not putting King down at all but I'd still like to see a live dvd.
What can I say about the guitar work, these guys are consummate musicians. The phrasing,lyricism and balls of the solos is top notch. Checkout Mike Wead's solo on the title track, I haven't heard a solo phrased that well since Adrian Smith's finest work with Iron Maiden. And they have the chops to make it sound easy.Very musical too, no shredding for shred's sake at all, the sign of mature craftsmen.Hat's off to Andy,King ,Hal Mike, and Matt. Keep doing it fellas, we love it!
