The first compilation mini-album by legendary Danish Heavy Metal band.
The album contains five tracks and an outro, including some rare tracks and B-sides of 12'' singles. "The Lake" ranks as probably the rarest of all King Diamond's tracks. Until this release, it was only available on the limited edition "Halloween" Picture Disc, which quicklly came and disappeared in September '86.
King Diamond adds: “These are not remasters. These are the albums as they were originally done in the old days from the original production masters. They retain all the original dynamics that were captured at the time. It’s very exciting to present these to fans as they were originally released”.
The album cover featured King Diamond with face paint that resembled KISS bassist Gene Simmons' "Demon". Simmons claimed that King's face paint was copyright infringement and sued him. The lawsuit was eventually dropped when King changed his design.
