Style: Heavy Metal
Release date: 7 December, 2013
Playing time: 47:48

Unless you absolutely adores the Danish king: King Diamond, there's no need to read on...

But if you love his work and has been following his career in Mercyful Fate and as a solo recording artist then you have to listen to this brilliant young German band: Attic.

Attic eats, sleeps and breaths King Diamond; everything from the atmospheric song structures, thru the occult lyrical themes, which is also reflected in their image and the zenith is reached with a vocalist, who screams, whispers and sings exactly like the King himself. Original? Not a snowball in Hell chance. But well done? Absolutely! It is eerie how close they sound to the original, and I love this album as much as any King Diamond/Mercyful Fate album (more than some).

I think Ván Records has struck gold with Attic, like they did with The Devil's Blood, and I am sure the faithful ones will bow down in awe and worship Meister Cagliostro and his blood brothers.

This is premium plagiarism done extremely well!
