CD Reviews

Halloween is the night! the legend says, the ghost will rise
Jonathan Heckman | 10/26/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"mercyful fates debut album and e.p. all in one cd set, could anything be better? its definatly worth getting this edition of "melissa" and "the begining" because fate cds are 20 bucks a piece, but this will only cost you 15 bucks.now,on to the album.

the mercyful fate e.p. which is contained on the "begining" cd is very early, rough sounding, patchy fate, but awesome non the less despite the production. the songs "nuns have no fun",
"corpse w/ out a soul" "doomed by the living dead" and "devils eyes" were originally recorded in 1982 and came out on mercyful fate's first e.p., songs like "nuns have no fun" and "corpse w/ out a soul" show you that fate was not something your mom would be listening to. "melissa" which was released in 1983, fates first album, has the songs "evil", "curse of the pharaohs", "in to the coven","at the sound of the demon bell", "black funeral", "satans fall" and "melissa". this album is one of my all time favorite's. you should try to go out and find this one, you should make it one of the few metal albums to own.
the song "evil" is just so kick @$$ and a perfect way to start of an album. the whole album flows together, like every song is related to each other. definatly the scaryest thing you will listen to."
