[SOLO: MICHAEL]

Howl like a wolf
And a witch will open the door
Follow me and meet our High Priestess

Come, come into my Coven
And become Lucifer's Child

[SOLO: MICHAEL]

Undress until you're naked
And put on this white coat
Take this white cross and go to the middle of the ring

Come, come into my Coven
And become Lucifer's Child

[SOLO: HANK & MICHAEL]

Suck the blood from this unholy knife
Say after me: my soul belongs to Satan

Now, now you're into my Coven
You are Lucifer's Child
Into the Coven
Lucifer's Child

    Mercyful Fate and Metallica are both excellent. Metallica recognizes how great King Diamond is.

    If you don't respect either of them, then you can keep that to yourself, or continue to hold yourself up to further ridicule.

    Metallica and Mercyful Fate both were struggling together to gain commercial success while neither would compromise artistic vision.

    "omg, hermanator... if you don't equate success wit hpopularity, what do you equate it with?"

    haha, thanks for proving you're a gigantic douche. maybe you just think of success as being rich and all that shit, but when you're creating music, i'd like to think that the art ranks above album sales, but unfortunately, it's not like that so much.

    To tell you the truth I only got a user name here because I wanted to take the piss out of stupid people. Bob, again, no need to attack someone personally for their opinion. Eagle, again, the lyrics tell a story, enjoy the story. Just because someone is influenced by something you don't like, doesn't mean you can't enjoy the music and the story it tells.

    As for this song, as with many other Fate songs, the lyrics themselves are just a story, so to get the ;meaning' of a song, read the lyrics! The little guitar solo at the start of this song is almost funny, but fun to play, and does well to set the atmosphere for the next solo. This is where Metallica's version is better IMO, the sound they get is amazing, and so is James' voice.

    LOL.

    i heard the metallica version. then i realized i was wasting my time. king diamond totally outclasses james in terms of vocal capabilities, originality and just musically.

    as for the solo, i really didn't notice any substantial difference. maybe its because kirk is one of the most overrated guitarists in the business? probably. i ultimately deleted the metallica version because it was wasting disc space and i didn't want my friends to find it on my computer and think i'm gay ;)

    King Diamond is so good I guess that's why I recently heard they had to cancel their show here because they only sold 14 tickets. Sounds like brilliance to me.

    this song, along with mercyful fate's whole first disk, is overrated. Their second disk is much better in my opinion. The lyrics are silly and not very scary when compared with their better songs.

    There is something creepy about Metallica..... No matter how distant is a music review, Metallica allways seems to pop up....

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
