King Diamond ticket give away

King Diamond at the Fillmore Silver Spring

The Danish king of metal, King Diamond, finally returns to tour the US with his eponymous solo band and they’ll be playing the Fillmore Silver Spring this Monday, October 13th! It’s not every day one of the European legends of metal comes to town so we’re giving away a pair of tickets to one of you lucky DCHM readers. To enter leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite King Diamond or Mercyful Fate song is (if you need help you can see their discographies at these links: KD and MF). At 5pm EST this Friday, October 10th, a winner will be chosen at random (using from all valid entries to receive two tickets to the show! Be sure to use a valid email you check regularly so I can contact you if you win. Don’t worry, I won’t add you to any spam lists or sell your info or anything sleazy like that. If I haven’t heard back from the winner in 24 hours another winner will be chosen at random. Please don’t enter if you know you can’t attend, the contest ends just a few days before the show so I don’t have a lot of time to keep picking winners and waiting to hear back. If you can’t wait to see if you win, or the contest is already over when you read this, then you can get tickets right now for $43 from Live Nation here.

Aside from his incredible vocal range, King Diamond is also known for elaborate stage designs and theatrical live performances making this is a show you don’t want to miss! This will only be the second show of the tour so his voice should be in great form, and you can bet he’ll be playing a few classics from his previous band, Mercyful Fate, as well. And let’s not forget Andy LaRocque will be there shredding on lead guitar. The opener for this show is Jess And The Ancient Ones, a new band from Finland that sounds more like they’re from San Francisco in the 60’s. Perhaps this is what a gothy version of Jefferson Airplane would sound like. They’re not really “metal” per se, but they do have an evil vibe going on and they should be an interesting opener. Now check out these awesome videos of the bands below while you tell me what you favorite King Diamond or Mercyful Fate song is in the comments!

King Diamond – Sleepless Nights

King Diamond – Welcome Home

Jess And The Ancient Ones – Astral Sabbat


  1. Its all about Come to the Sabbath! ♡

  2. My favorite song is the Possession on Abigail because the bass line is amazing!

  3. Charon is my fave. I’ll scream like a little girl if he plays that song, though nobody will notice b/c my high pitch scream will blend in with Kings vocals. \m/

  4. Desecration of Souls, hands down.

  5. no presents for christmas

  6. It’s hard to pick just one but always loved “A Visit From The Dead”! Would love to win this, too broke to go and know I’ll kick myself for missing this!

  7. I know it seems pretty lame but Abigal title song is probably my favorite! Because its very dramatic when miriam calls out to jonathan during her possession you can feel the intensity and it gives me goosebumps!

  8. The Puppet Master from the album The Puppet Master.

  9. Probably Abigail, it really hits the Highlight of the album in which it depicts the intensity in Miriam’s possession,the way she calls out to jonathan gives me goosebumps!

  10. Best song is Satans fall!!! No contest!!

  11. Okay, I like a lot of King Diamond songs. However as my favorite I have to pick Give Me Your Soul from the album Give Me Your Soul… Please. My pick is not necessarily because of the music, but the video which I love. I love the guitar solo in the song, but the every time I watch the video I can’t help but just laugh so hard because it is not scary at all, just kinda funny. :-)

  12. Black fuckin Horsemen.. on such a masterpiece album.

  13. Whoops… that was my comment..hahha

  27. Welcome Home, because every time I think about Jay and Silent Bob and it makes me laugh without fail

  28. Evil by Mercyful Fate is by far my favorite

  29. “Black Hill Sanitarium,” the first song I ever heard by King Diamond!

  30. July 7th, 1777! The solo is amazing!

  31. Sleepless nights!

  32. Black Funeral fo sho.

  33. Abigail. The song and album are the best.

  34. The Family Ghost

  35. One of my fav songs is “the Candle”. Why? Maybe the structure, maybe killer solos, or maybe because the scream at 5 mins in, just because it seemed like a good time to scream. Yaaah. Yaaah. So king Diamond.
