Good review, but as a LONG time MF / King Diamond fan (over 20 years), I still extremely FAIL to see the similarities. Sorry. Maybe from overall tone, but certainly not lyrically.
I am a fan of GHOST BTW, I just never agreed with the King D / MF comparisons.
2/18: Ghost In The Ruins / Maiden Chicago / The Mob Rules
3/17: Iced Earth / Warbringer / Ghost In The Ruins / Depremacy
