Notes

Clear vinyl limited to 125 copies. Audio is of the original studio album "Melissa". This is not a live recording.

The title "Melissa October 1983" is written on the spine of the gatefold.

The painting by Thomas Holm of the band in Egypt was supposed to be the initial cover but was rejected by the label. Now presented for the first time ever with the originally intended cover and in a gatefold jacket.


Album

Melissa is the debut studio album by Danish heavy metal band Mercyful Fate, released on 30 October 1983. It was the first album released by Roadrunner Records. This was also the first Mercyful Fate effort to get an official release in the United States through Megaforce Records, as the self-titled EP was a highly sought after import, and the BBC sessions were only available on bootleg tapes.

The whole of Melissa is composed, I'd wager, of full live takes which have simply been bolsteres and balanced, and like Priest's masterful one-two of the 80s BS & SFV the use of multitracking on vocals more than anywhere else is done to ethereal, understated effect.

Mercyful Fate's debut album, Melissa, took Black Sabbath's dark occult obsessions to an extreme, fusing them with the speed and tightened, twin-guitar riffing attack of British metal bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. But the band had a distinctive sound of its own, thanks to the neo-classical flourishes of guitarists Hank Shermann and Michael Denner and the unpredictable vocal leaps of King Diamond, who could jump from a deathly growl to an unearthly falsetto wail in the next line. Released October 30, 1983. Melissa Tracklist. Evil Lyrics. Melissa has influenced countless artists through its neoclassical guitar leads, Satanic lyrics, and King Diamonds inhuman vocals. In particular, its occult content went on to inspire many first wave black metal bands
