Vocal-wise, it doesn't get any better than this

"Abigail (1987) just plains rocks. It's dark metal at its finest. King Diamond sounds like a cross between Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Metallica. They are definitely influenced by these bands, as all bands are influenced by something out there. King Diamond (formerly of Mercyful Fate) has a wickedly high voice that fits the music perfectly and he has cited Robert Plant, Ian Gillan, Rob Halford, Ronnie James Dio, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, and David Byron as his main influences. His voice range might be greater and higher than Rob Halford's and is certainly higher than Geddy Lee's (of Rush).

The whole album is awesome. Not one bad track. Favorites of mine are The Family Ghost, A Mansion In Darkness, The 7th Day of July 1777, The Possession, and Black Horsemen.

If you want some really dark heavy metal for your listening enjoyment, listen to this album and all this band has to offer. Their concept albums are awesome for the Halloween season."
