Heavy metal legends King Diamond are preparing to enter the studio to begin writing and recording the long-awaited successor to 2007’s “Give Me Your Soul… Please” album.
The writing and recording process has been already delayed a few times before. The band is also finishing the Blu-ray and DVD filmed during King’s 2015-2016 “Abigail In Concert” tour. The Blu-ray and DVD will contain two full concerts, one recorded at an indoor venue in 2015 in Philadelphia and other at the outdoor Graspop Metal Meeting festival in 2016 in Belgium.
King Diamond’s frontman talked about their plans for the coming months during an appearance on Eddie Trunk’s “SiriusXM” radio show. He announced:
As soon as the DVD is finished — it’ll be a matter of two or three weeks — guitarist Andy LaRocque is showing up here in Frisco, Texas, to initiate my home studio where I’m gonna do all the vocals for a brand new King Diamond studio album. There’s some very unique things I’m putting into it this time where you will relate to some of the sounds you hear on it, ’cause it’s sounds that you will hear on certain days in your private life. You’re outdoors, or whatever, and you might hear certain sounds and you will, guaranteed, think, if you heard the album, ‘I wonder if that thing King talked about could have happened when I heard that sound here.
