King Diamond - A Mansion In Darkness Lyrics:

Riding up the alley in the rain

No lights to show the way

How could this ever be their home

Through the darkness you could only see

A giant shadow wich was to be

A house where evil ruled at night

And the shadows at the gate, they seemed to be alive

Yeah the shadows at the gate, alive

Everything inside was left untouched

Except for what the rats had got

And the dust of time that showed its mark

Armed with candlelight and open eyes

Through the dark they fought their way

til every room was lit again...again

And the house began to breathe, it seemed to be alive

Yeah the house began to breathe, alive

As the candlelight began to fade

And jonathan said lets go to bed

The fireplace had ceased to burn...burn

Both were fast asleep before the dawn, dreaming...dreaming

And they did not know about the shadow

Yeah the shadow on the wall, it really came alive

Yeah the shadow on the wall, sunrise!

King as a whole is fantastic. But it in this song the part that stands out to me in particular is right at 1:46 when his scream fades into the guitar.. Goosebumps..

Who are the 2 bastards that dared downvote this song?!This song, as with all the songs on Abigail just kick fucking ass in all aspects, the vox, the guitars, the bass, the drums, the lyrics and general songwriting and arrangements. Abigail was a masterpiece of an album. \m/

Yeah his notes are beyond the 6th octave but that is if we talk about the full real range range, but if his lower register starts on the 2nd or 3rd "real" octave then his register would be about 4 octaves. And I agree King does better lyrics, but that's because they're focused on almost a single theme the occult, and there's a lot of poetry speaking in that theme. Well King may be a better writer, but for me both singers are awesome in their own right

With his falsetto his highest notes are actually well beyond the 6th octave \m/. Rob has him beat with 7 but Rob is the Metal God for a reason, but the King is my personal favorite singer and imo has more versatility and wayyy better writing capability then Halford
