A late pos. After having a slightly better look, the pos was well-deserved. Highly recommend you give this album a spin if you haven't already, really quality stuff. Album Rating: 5. Lars Ulrich played drums on track Instant 1. Mercyful Fate In the Shadows 4. Review by Nash J! Review Summary: Mercyful Fate's reunion album, In the Shadows, is an extremely underrated classic that ultimately lives up to the quality of its predecessors.
Rank: for They're Back! After taking the underground metal scene by storm in the mid s, Mercyful Fate decided to part ways, leaving behind them a legacy shrouded in darkness and evil. From the ashes of what was once Mercyful Fate rose a second band, King Diamond. Although they never quite abandoned their previous sound, King Diamond was a completely different ordeal. Each King Diamond release was a concept album that contained a full-blown narrative revolving around some kind of ghost story.
Although King Diamond certainly had a dedicated following and had its fair share of critical acclaim, it never came close to being as impactful or popular in the metal community as Mercyful Fate once was. With this being the case, a Mercyful Fate reunion was only logical. On June 6, , metalheads flocked to the record store to buy Mercyful Fate's reunion album, In the Shadows , with justifiably high hopes as to what the album would sound like.
However, what they were about to listen to was something none of them could have possibly predicted. In the Shadows refuses to be a throwback to Mercyful Fate's classic career.
Musically speaking, the album stays loyal to their 80s releases. However, the evil, Satanic themes that popularized the band in the first place are nonexistent on the album. Because of this, In the Shadows plays like a fusion between Mercyful Fate and King Diamond, taking important parts of both bands and combining them into one release. Top 50 United States.
