KING DIAMOND Best-Of Collection Due In November

Danish heavy metal singer King Diamond has revealed to Full Metal Jackie that a comprehensive “best-of” collection from his namesake band will be made available on November 11 via Metal Blade Records.

The musician, who is also working on a new studio album from KING DIAMOND, says: “Metal Blade got the chance, through getting some of licenses from Roadrunner — well, Roadrunner is under Warner— so they got some licenses from them to actually release some vinyl of the old Roadrunner stuff, but also to do a best-of [collection]. And that’s something that’s coming out, a genuine best-of that is spanning the entire KING DIAMOND career. So there is one disc that is only Roadrunner material, one disc that is Metal Blade, but it’s [being] released through Metal Blade, the whole thing. And it sounds amazing.”

King, 58, whose real name is Kim Bendix Petersen, underwent open-heart triple-bypass surgery in November 2010. He has since completed his cardiac rehabilitation program and has stopped smoking entirely, changed his diet and is getting regular exercise.

KING DIAMOND received a Grammy nomination in the “Best Metal Performance” category for the track “Never Ending Hill” off the group’s latest album, “Give Me Your Soul … Please“.

Give Me Your Soul … Please” sold 4,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 174 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Enslaved Enter Studio To Record 13th Album

Earlier this year, Enslaved began working on their next album after they released RIITIIR back in 2012. The thirteenth studio installment by the Norway’s progressive extreme metallers is now underway as the recording process has started.

From his home in Bergen, Norway, Enslaved guitarist, songwriter, and founding member Ivar Bjørnson takes some time to give the following update: “My favorite time of year is whenever we enter the studio with Enslaved to record a new album. Now the season of creative madness, endless days, and bleeding fingertips is upon us again… O joy! As before, it is the unholy trinity that forms the first line of attack: I (guitar), Grutle (Kjellson, bass & vocals), and Cato (Bekkevold, drums), are recording the foundations of the album live, while Ice Dale (lead guitar) and Herbrand (Larsen, vocals & keys) will add their instruments and voice in their own studios after these initial core sessions. Then I will add some wackiness at my home studio, before we all get together again to finish it.”

‘I Don’t Progress As A Songwriter That Much’

Greg Prato of Songfacts recently conducted an interview with guitarist Jeff Waters of Canadian metallers ANNIHILATOR. An excerpt from the chat follows below.

Songfacts: How does the last ANNIHILATOR album, “Feast“, compare to previous ANNIHILATOR albums in terms of songwriting?

Jeff Waters: Hmm. That’s a tough one. I’ve got to be honest: After being the main songwriter since the first record we did in ’89 — the main guy doing 90 to 100 percent of the writing on the records — it’s very tough to come up with stuff sometimes. You get writer’s block or you just simply come up with stuff that you’re kind of repeating from the past. “Feast” is our 14th record, so I’ve got to work very hard at that. But like a lot of writers, I try to change certain things up to get inspired. A lot of times writers will write after they get off the road and they’re all psyched about playing with other bands and hearing riffs from other bands live. Just seeing concerts or whatever things in your life you experience that might inspire you. But I think the actual songwriting process is kind of hard to deviate from: You’re kind of born with, “Okay, this is how I do it,” and it’s tough to get outside of that. There are some writers that can do that, which is just genius talent. But I don’t continually listen to music — especially new music — and I don’t practice guitar all the time like I did when I was younger, just because there are so many other things I have to do involved in the group and life in general. So I don’t progress, really, as a guitar player that much and I don’t progress as a songwriter that much. I’m simply, in a way, rehashing everything that I’ve soaked up in the first 10 years of my metal life that just keeps coming out in the songs. I’m sure if I went out and started listening to a lot of other new bands it would influence what I’m doing, but it’s not really what I want to do or what I’d like to do. I just like what I’m doing. The key for me is I’ve got to really work hard to review what I’ve written right after I write something and take at least a minute away from it or a day or whatever and say, “Holy crap, is this a SLAYER riff, for crying out loud?” You know what I mean? Like, sometimes you get too close to your favorite bands. But as long as you can be a bit objective and can squeak by and later on you look back at records and go, “Darn, that song could have been better,” or “This really sounded like an IRON MAIDEN harmony style.” But that’s like a tribute. It’s where I got my stuff from the in the first place, as a fan and guitar player. “Feast” is really no different. I just got lucky in the sense that I think somehow the songs on that one, at least the first half of the record, the songs sort of stepped up a level from the previous couple. Then again, when I say that a lot of people will argue and say, “No, no. Three records ago was your best one lately.” And some will say the last one. I’m lucky I’m in a band that doesn’t have the same style every single record and there’s little different styles of music that slip in there. Some people like the changes, and some people don’t. But I think “Feast” just got lucky because our singer Dave Padden and I were in a good frame of mind and something was different. I have no idea what it was. I think everybody agrees — at least overseas — it’s a better album that we’ve been putting out lately. Hey, imagine if there was a drug or a pill or something that could make a perfect song or the perfect record every time. AC/DC would have 15 “Back In Black“s by now.
