A brand new King Diamond song, entitled 'Never Ending Hill', is available for free download at the Download Punk website. The track comes off the group's long-awaited new album, 'Give Me Your Soul... Please', which will be released in North America on June 26 via Metal Blade Records. Massacre Records will issue the album in Germany on June 29.
Revolver magazine recently reported that King Diamond's new album was inspired by a painting called 'My Mother's Eyes' which the band's distributor in Denmark stumbled across while surfing the net (and which Diamond has since bought for the new CD cover).
The more Diamond looked at the image of a battered blond girl with blood covering her white dress, holding out palms affixed with protruding eyeballs, the more it captivated and inspired him. 'I can feel the energy of the front cover in all the songs we wrote, and it will definitely affect my lyrics,' he promised.
King Diamond guitarist Andy La Rocque recently returned home to Sweden after 'a very heavy and intense mixing session' in Dallas, Texas with King Diamond on 'Give Me Your Soul... Please'. 'It's definitely the best songs and production we've had in years!' Andy told Blabbermouth.net. 'A rollercoaster of atmospheres and horror is a good way of describing' the new CD.
