If you’re a fan of Volbeat or King Diamond, or maybe you like both, then you’ll be happier than an exonerated serial killer to hear that the two parties have collaborated on a song. The track, “Room 24,” comes off of Volbeat’s latest album, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies. King Diamond didn’t just collaborate on the track, he also lent his one-of-a-kind vocals.
If hearing the Jacob Hansen-mastered version on YouTube isn’t doing it for you, you are entitled to a free download at www.kingdiamondcoven.com.
The track “Room 24” features a massive coup for Volbeat with the guest appearance from King Diamond, the legendary front man of Danish metal pioneers Mercyful Fate, and one of Poulsen’s musical idols. Volbeat reveals,
“I’m a huge fan of Mercyful Fate and King Diamond. Having King on the record is a huge privilege. Normally, it’s not something he does. He wrote his own lines, and it is half my lyrics and half his. It’s a weird, scary story, and he’s the perfect person for it.”
