Grabber is a good bass player, and he is audible on most of this album. The guitars have enough pop and crunch and reverb all at the right moments. Lastly, this features Diamond, who functions far differently than any of the previous bands’ vocalists. I really hear exceedingly little of them in this music. But enough about me, we’re here for Mercyful Fate’s “Melissa”, the band’s first full album after their grisly but fun self-titled EP.

Thirty-Five Years Later: Mercyful Fate – Melissa

It’s inevitable that the same five albums will always appear in every publication’s “Top Metal Bands” list, but going beyond those albums and digging a little bit deeper will yield this gem, where nothing similar had appeared before and nothing quite like it has come around since. For those unaware, these Danish lads gave Roadrunner Records their first release, and it was also the first release for the band in the United States, despite having an EP previous to Melissa source.

CalebJanuary 11th, The guitar duo is on, the Stained Class comparison was not an exaggeration. This is better than anything done by that band. Mercyful Fate would never make an album as good as this one again, but it’s better to make one near perfect album than never to make a good one at all.


Take for example the happy neoclassical guitar part to “Into the Coven” which mixes both acoustic and electric guitar for perhaps one of the gayest unicorns chasing leprechauns atop a rainbow moments in heavy metal history, and yet this album has nothing to do with power metal. I mean, seriously, isn’t this one of the most copied songs in the metal? Mercyful Fate The Bell Witch. Be as hokey as you want as long as you can make it work.

EstigiaSeptember 19th, You will either like him the first time you hear him, or you won’t. The musicianship truly shines on this track, Shermann and Denner have a field day serving up their most devastating arsenal of riffs while the rhythm section drive the song forward with a perfect balance of power and groove. If you want a Venom clone here in terms of production and tone, prepare to be disappointed.

For longevity’s sake, that’s probably the most rewarding part that a performer or musician could ask mercyfull. Its creativity, and ultimately its elusiveness, to pin it down as a single part or dividend is the most important aspect here. These guys are meelissa legend for a reason! Add the guitar solos that are nothing short of amazing to that and that song alone will already be worth the price you’ll pay for this album.

Melissa (Mercyful Fate album) – Wikipedia

This gives an idea for the sound as a whole. Melissa is the debut studio album by Danish heavy metal band Mercyful Fatereleased on 30 October The scientist that yearns for tangible results, noor even the everyday skeptics, nahmore like for the wishful that wants to see something unexplained that wasn’t there before.


Yes, I said it three more times already, back off, I’m the one reviewing this. With all due respect to the Priest, Mercyful Fate took what Priest had done in the 70s and brought it to a whole new level.

Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. As well-known by the metal community as this is, it is still criminally underrated. Yep, he’s a glorious vocalist, fully capturing all eight octaves on this album, flying from early death growls to 70’s Halford-like wailing. The melodies are terrific and the lyricism was highly ahead of its time for the genre. Mercyful Fate may have had the satanic imagery down, but this is all musically on the tamer hard rock side of heavy metal.

You DON’T own this?

Exploding through speakers like a heavy metal blitzkrieg from hell, Mercyful Fate set turntables on fire with their debut album Melissa. This isn’t putting it lightly or exaggerating what instruments can project through speakers. But enough about me, we’re here for Mercyful Fate’s “Melissa”, the band’s first full album after their grisly but fun self-titled EP. You won’t hear me complain about that.

This is the way that this album starts off: The production here isn’t perfect, but it works to give them probably the best atmosphere these guys ever had. As for prog, I’ll get to that in a moment.
