As you likely guessed from the title unless you’re a moron, King Diamond’s Conspiracy turns 25 today! Raise your hands if you knew that one!
If you’re feeling old, just wait: Don’t Break the Oath turns THIRTY in a couple of weeks. THIRTY. Jesus. Anyway, in honor of the album’s quarter-century mark, we’re going to use this week’s Throwback Thursday post to pay tribute. Here’s a live performance of one of Conspiracy‘s best-loved tracks, “Sleepless Nights,” from last year’s Metaldays festival in Slovenia:
For those keeping score at home, King was 57 at the time of that performance. FIFTY-SEVEN. And he still sounded pretty damn good! I am now 100% more jealous of Corey for having caught his set at Wacken this year, and will now proceed to hound StubHub for secondhand tickets to his NYC show in October. Balls. Anyway, that’s this week’s #tbt! Check back later on for Quickies!
Live. Love. Plow. Horns Up.
