Beautiful re-release

One of my favorites Mercyful fate releases, even when the king vocals are no as good as in past releases but there are some highlights like in Egypt, Shadows and is that you Melissa? musically talking this album sounds a quite flat but still with that atmosphere of darkness... classics riffs and solos, acoustic parts all the common places in any other Mercyful Fate Album... Of course never reaching the level of albums like Dont Break the Oath or Melissa, but for sure you will be trapped by the black magic of this album

The comeback worth waiting for

When it comes to the legendary bands comebacks, which were worth the efforts and waiting for, MERCYFYL FATE rising from the ahes in early 90’s was exactly the one. The band was reborn in all its glory and almost the same legendary line-up (except for the drummer), and this first album from their “second coming” turned out to be nothing but pure MERCYFUL FATE as we knew and loved it. As for this here reissue, I’ve found its sound (despite being put on one single LP) a bit more natural and alive compared to that of several years old pressing from Back On Black. Funny and strange how the bonus track “Return Of The Vampire” got 3 years older here as its new name suggests, but it isn’t a big deal really. All in all, thumbs up, very good reissue.

Not a masterpiece, but its good

Nine years after Mercyful Fate released Don't Break the Oath. The songs here are first rate; most of them grab your attention in one way or another. But what separates this record from the rest for me is the amount of hooks found here. Whether it is a riff, a chorus or a drum pattern, by the end of the album you'll remember something from it. The album also features awesome production; you can listen to every single note and vocal line the way that the band intended and yet, it doesn't sound overly polished. if you are into King Diamond or Mercyful Fate and have never heard this, I see no reason why you would not like this album, as it delivers a quality dose of what you would expect from these artists. If you have never heard these guys and are curious to check them out, In the Shadows would be a good place to look.
