King Diamond Premieres Studio Version of New Song “Masquerade of Madness”
The legendary King Diamond is currently touring North America (tickets), kicking all kinds of ass with a killer setlist that includes the new song “Masquerade of Madness,” which His Majesty first debuted live over the summer.
The King has now released the studio recording of that song, and yeah it’s fuckin’ great. It’s got everything you want in a King Diamond song: galloping guitars, glass-shattering vocals, and conspiratorial lyrics about insanity. His Highness hasn’t lost a step!
Listen to “Masquerade of Madness” below. It will appear on King Diamond’s new album, The Institute, which will be out early next year on Metal Blade.
