MERCYFUL FATE "The Beginning" [12" LP, Orange Vinyl]
1987 - Traditional Heavy/Black Metal from Denmark
Not many bands can claim to be as influential as Mercyful Fate. As one of the early purveyors of true metal, the band's impact is felt far and wide; from the new wave of black metals' Emperor and Watain to international metal gods Megadeth and Metallica. Originally issued on Roadrunner Records in 1987, The Mercyful Fate compilation album, The Beginning, includes the four-track Nuns Have No Fun EP plus four additional rare early cuts.
