Happy Wednesday Metalheads! Hope you all are having a great holiday season and Santa was good to everyone. Today we’re going to step back to 2004 to a track off Pagan’s Mind debut album “Infinity Divine” originally recorded in 2000 and re-recorded in 2004, for the track, a cover of King Diamond’s “At The Graves” from his 1989 “Conspiracy” album.
Vocalist Nils K. Rue who hails from Norway has stated in interviews that upon hearing Mercyful Fate and Dio, he was hooked and wanted to be involved with music from that day forward. Guitarist Glen Drover, who played with King Diamond on his two of his North American tours and guitarist Gus G., who has played with several bands including Arch Enemy, Mystic Prophecy and Ozzy Osbourne to name a few, make guest appearances on the track as well.
The first time I heard this song, I thought I was listening to King Diamond, which shows me what great a job Nils did with this cover. Check the track out for yourself below and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
