  • satan's fall
    they're walking by the night
    the moon has frozen blue
    long black coats a shelter for the rain
    their load must get through
    now bats are leaving their trees
    they're joining the call
    seven satanic hell preachers
    heading for the hall
    bringing the blood of a newborn child
    got to succeed, if not it's satan's fall

    curse of the pharaohs
    away out in egypt in the valley of kings
    where the mummified pharaohs
    pretend dead in their sleep
    don't touch, never ever steal
    unless you're in for the kill
    or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
    yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you
    the curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly
    just destroying your future
    makin' it all shady
    don't touch, never ever steal
    unless you're in for the kill
    or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
    yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you

    a corpse without soul
    listen, i'm a corpse, i'm a corpse
    i'm a corpse without soul
    satan, he's taken, he's taken
    he's taken his toll
    and he took it on me
    i, i'm trapped, i'm trapped
    i'm trapped in his spell
    tonight, i'm going, i'm going
    i'm going to hell, inside his spell

    into the coven
    howl like a wolf
    and a witch will open the door
    follow me and meet our high priestess
    come, come into my coven
    and become lucifer's child
    undress until you're naked
    and put on this white coat
    take this white cross and go to the center of the ring
    come, come into my coven
    and become lucifer's child

    evil
    i was born on the cemetery
    under the sign of the moon
    raised from my grave by the dead
    and i was made a mercenary
    in the legions of hell
    now i'm king of pain, i'm insane
    you know my only pleasure
    is to hear you cry
    i'd love to hear you cry
    i'd love to see you die
    and i'll be the first
    to watch your funeral
    and i'll be the last to leave
    i'd love to hear you cry
    and when you're down beyond the ground
    i'll dig up your body again
    and make love to shame
    oh lady cry, and say goodbye
    oh lady cry, and say goodbye
    you've gotta say goodbye
    'cause i will eat your mind

  • king diamond'ın brats adlı punk grubunda tanıştığı hank shermann ve michael denner ile kurduğu, 1982 yılında nuns have no fun adı verilen ep'yi, 1983'de melissa albümünü ve 1984 yılında don't break the oath albümünü çıkardıktan sonra müziksel sebeplerden ve grubun imajı yüzünden dağılan, 1993'de in the shadows albümü ile tekrar birleşen efsanevi gruptur. günümüzdeki bir çok metal grubunu etkilemiştir.

    ayrıca metallica'nın garage inc. adlı albümündeki mercyful fate medley'i ile zamanında konserlerde alt grubu olarak çıktıkları bu büyük gruba bir teşekkür olarak görebiliriz.
  • çok ilginç bir kapak yaratığına sahip grup.pekçok dövmeye de esin kaynağı olmuştur.
