Thoughts on Songs with King Diamond
After a Burning of a Witch,Two little girls come across an artifact in the ashes of the witch.One of the little girls picks it up.and the other little girl is jealous that her friend found the necklace.but when the one girl looks into the necklace, which is an eye,she sees horror! And then it brought her dispear.She suffered for the rest of her life.
Dave Grohls Solo project (PROBOT),was Grohl writing and playing every instrument to accommodate the style of his childhood heroes.Iconic front men from extreme Heavy Metal bands.King Diamond is a danish singer.originally from the Band Mercyful Fate.and eventually his solo band King Diamond.KD is known to have a high pitched voice unlike anyone from any other band.It is such a unique falsetto. But he has many growls,howls,laughs and screams.In this song,which is about nighmares,and real feeling sleep depravated half asleep, but can't awaken Freddy Krueger nightmare on elmstreet type dreams.In this song The mystical evil story telling King Diamond shows us his whole repotuire in this one song.
