Here's what King has to say about the music video for the band's latest song "Masquerade of Madness":

""Masquerade of Madness" was released digitally in 2019 before our North American tour. During rehearsals, we took one full day to film "Masquerade of Madness" with David Brodsky and Allison Woest. We spent all day and all night recording while performing the song with our full tour stage show choreography. After the tour, covid happened.

The video was all but forgotten as the world came to a standstill - we never saw a single frame from all the footage. Years later, as things began to pick up and writing began for both new MERCYFUL FATE and KING DIAMOND records, we wondered, what happened to that video from four years ago? So we decided to check in with David Brodsky and a couple of weeks later, we had the first cut of the video.

I was speechless! I had nothing to criticize and after just a few notes from Andy LaRocque, the video for "Masquerade of Madness" was finished! There's so much mood and black and white is used in a perfect way with Jodi's performances. The visuals fit the music flawlessly and this is now among my favorite KING DIAMOND videos along with "Sleepless Nights" and "Welcome Home" - and not to forget of course, our double live DVD.

The 12" vinyl LP features tracks "Masquerade of Madness", "Welcome Home (Live at Graspop)", and "Arrival (Live at Graspop)" - all available for the first time on vinyl. "Masquerade of Madness" features a collectable paper mask and will be available in four color variants worldwide.

  • Bone

EU Variants:
  • 180 g Black
  • Clear Violet Brown Marbled
Vinyl Track Listing:

  • "Masquerade of Madness"
Side 2
