Probably the most "different" album to ever be released by Mercyful Fate. The main differential factor that this has as opposed to other MF albums is that it's more in the melodic direction and less in the spontanious direction, unlike the band's other releases. It sounds very much alike to the other tracks on that release, heavy and aggressive, yet very melodic.
A very strong track. This is where the album turns a bit more melodic and symphonic, though keeping its heaviness all the way through. This song has a very memorable chorus. Going into an even more symphonic level is 'Witches' Dance'. It's one of the catchiest songs on the album, yet one of the more complexed yracks heard here. King shows his interest in writing middle eastern lyrics once more on 'The Mad Arab', except this time the music has an arabic tone to it that sets the mood well for the song.
