I’m new to king Diamond and haven’t heard a bad track yet.
Avatar 3:15am Bill Zebub:

Greetings, Master Scott.
Avatar 3:16am Bill Zebub:

Bconrad, I was wondering how you would react to the falsetto.
Avatar 3:17am Bconrad138:

Dosen’t bother me at all, some falsettos seem forced or out of place. Not so with his music

Morning all :)

Hellsaw definitely going on the list!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27am Scott67:

That mashup is a scream Bill!
Avatar 3:27am Bill Zebub:

That is good to hear, Bconrad. I like being the one to introduce music.
Avatar 3:27am Bill Zebub:

Avatar 3:29am Bconrad138:

I always get at least two bands to check out every week from your show, three so far tonight!
Avatar 3:32am Bconrad138:

@scott67 I totally agree, that mashup is something!
Avatar 3:34am Bill Zebub:

Nothing like lyrics being taken out of context, ha ha
Avatar 3:36am Bconrad138:

Alright my fellow vortex friends, signing off! Till we meet again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am Paulo AD:

Paulo, guess I should make the most of your presence. Before the Office consumes you once more!
Avatar 3:45am Bill Zebub:

Perform the grim duties of your office.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47am Scott67:

Metal Macbeth was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52am Paulo AD:

Yeah, I'll still listen to music in the office though. I can get on here on my phone

Greetings, Master Edwin.
  4:33am Edwin Oslan:

Mercyful Fate's pop-metal song! I love this song! It's on In the Shadows, and it's so great and catchy and should have made MF a HUGE mainstream success.
Avatar 4:34am Bill Zebub:

Did you hear the live version that I played a while back?
  4:36am Edwin Oslan:

I did not. I just love this freakin' song. I'm surprised this didn't become a hit single. Maybe if it had come out a few years earlier?
Avatar 4:42am Bill Zebub:

Edwin, if you are here for the end, I will close the show with a Victorian sort of black metal band.
  4:48am Edwin Oslan:

Oh, I'll be here. And hell yezzz on Trouble!
Avatar 4:48am Bill Zebub:

I love the remasters
  4:50am Edwin Oslan:

I have a remaster of Psalm 9, but it's an older reissue series, where they included a second disc. My buddy bought a more recent one of The Skull, and it didn't have a second disc and the booklet was kinda scant.
Avatar 4:52am Bill Zebub:

That remaster is the better one. Hammerheart has remaster rights for the self-titled and Run to the Light, which I have not yet seen for sale.
Avatar 4:52am Bill Zebub:

(self titled on Def American originally)
  4:55am Edwin Oslan:

You're saying the more recent one is the better remaster?
Avatar 4:56am Bill Zebub:

the 2-disc one is the superior one
  4:57am Edwin Oslan:

Oh yeah, but those are ass expensive now. I only have Psalm 9. Shoulda gotten 'em all when they came out. I'm a dumbass.
Avatar 5:12am Rich in Bristol:

UK time has sprung forward and thus I return to the Vortex.
Avatar 5:12am Bill Zebub:

Greetings, Master Rich.
Avatar 5:15am Rich in Bristol:

Hi Bill! Sounding good.
  5:16am Edwin Oslan:

Bringing me back to high school with this here Type O Negative, heh.
Avatar 5:17am Bill Zebub:

Not a radio hit, ha ha, Edwin.
  5:19am Edwin Oslan:

Not at all. I was a big Type O fan in high school, though. Never got to see 'em, sadly.
Avatar 5:20am Bill Zebub:

Peter Steel helped me a lot.
  5:21am Edwin Oslan:

From everything I hear about the guy, he was always like the nicest dude ever.
Avatar 5:22am Bill Zebub:

Tis true.
  5:23am Edwin Oslan:

Yeah, I read that biography of his. I think it's a shame that Josh Silver won't release the Fallout recordings.
  5:25am tullius:

Did not expect Tosca this morning. Mille grazie
  5:27am Edwin Oslan:

I recently purchased that Nevermore CD at a record and CD exchange at a mall!
Avatar 5:28am Bill Zebub:

Parlo Ascolta! Piu Tempo Non Ho
  5:34am tullius:

Ita est
Avatar 5:35am Bill Zebub:

Tullius, if you tune in next week, I shall play Italian death metal.
Avatar 5:36am Bill Zebub:

With opera.
  5:37am tullius:

I shall tune in next week
  5:46am tullius:

A nice memento mori
Avatar 5:51am Bill Zebub:

The next song is for Master Edwin...
  5:56am Edwin Oslan:

The one by A Forest of Stars?
Avatar 5:57am Bill Zebub:

Yes, it shall turn dark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am Paulo AD:

This is how my nose felt having the test just now
  6:00am Edwin Oslan:

Yeah, it's a rad track; part epic progressive, part black metal and blast beats, heh.
