While King Diamond’s devotees hold his studio recordings in high regard, experiencing the man with the ghoulish makeup and bone mic stand on-stage is a different story entirely. Few still deliver such a theatrically heavy stage show as King Diamond, and his tour in support of 2003’s The Puppet Master continued on in the grand tradition of his previous outings as shown here on these two live tracks. Entering his third decade as a solo artist, Diamond and band are still leaders of the progressive metal pack — Diamond’s multi-octave voice can still shatter glass, and longtime guitarist Andy LaRocque can still do battle with Yngwie Malmsteen. This is the perfect gift for Halloween as it delivers all the dark tales and speedy riffing you’d expect from metal’s Dark Lord.
