King Diamond - Update On New DVD And New Album

King Diamond have been working hard on a new DVD and a new record will follow. Now, finally, they give us some updates on that. Only when they finish work on the DVD will they write and record a brand new studio album, in 2017. Currently, the focus is on the DVD release.

King offered this update: "Andy La Rocque and our sound engineer Pontus Norgren, have begun work on the sound files from the shows we recorded on the US 2015 Abigail Tour. Andy said he was surprised by how good it all sounds. I have personally seen a rough cut of the song 'The Possession' which was put together for us as a pre-taster by Denise Korycki who is in charge of the video project, and I can tell you it sounded and looked amazing! Everything has taken a little longer than we initially thought it would, but we now also have footage from our 2016 European Summer Festivals and we're reviewing that as well for inclusion in the DVD set. I can't tell you a release date at this moment, but we're definitely sticking our heads full time into this project now.

"Once we have finished work on the DVD, it will be time for writing and recording the next brand new King Diamond studio album. 2017 will be spent mostly on writing and recording, and we will also try to fit in a few special festival shows, performing the same set as on the Abigail tour. We might even hit a few places we haven't been in a million years. Now you know as much as I do. Stay Heavy, King."

King Diamond haven't released a new album since 2007's Give Me Your Soul... Please.

In 2017 it will be 10 years since their last release. Maybe that is why King chose that year to record the new album. Maybe for the release as well.

Amazing news!! Seen them in London on Abigail tour, great show
And I see the blade fall down upon the head of lord in heaven
And Darkness falls upon the end of history
While I drink the milk of the Black Goddess and cry over the mankind

Black Moses is my name...
