King Diamond (born Kim Bendix Petersen, June 14, 1956, Denmark) is a heavy metal musician known for his wide vocal range and Satanic shock rock image. As the frontman for both Mercyful Fate and the eponymous King Diamond, his music has had an influence on many bands across a variety of metal sub-genres; Metallica, for instance, occasionally performed lengthy medleys of Mercyful Fate songs during their concerts. (King Diamond - Wikipedia)

King Diamond is the band that King Diamond formed after the split up of Mercyful Fate, following the departure of Hank Shermann. He was joined by most members of the then defunct Mercyful Fate. Their style had lost most of its proto-black metal element and had more of a progressive edge. The Satanic focus was replaced by a focus on horror stories. Apart from two albums, each of the albums contained a story told throughout the songs; some stories span more than one album. Only Fatal Portrait and The Spider's Lullaby deviate here, in that only half of the songs form a story while the other songs are independent.(King Diamond - Wikipedia)
