They may sound like Mercyful Fate, but do you know what? Who cares, In Solitude have taken all that was great from King Diamond and crew and distilled it into some new and fresh for the Twenty First century.

So even if you are as old as me and were down in front banging your head the first time around, give this a go and it will make you feel like that again. And if you are new to this, enjoy and welcome to your new favourite occult heroes.

Yes,In Solitude may be influenced by mercyful fate and king diamond but they still have their own thing going on.Occult inspired lyrics and another entry in the 'new wave of swedish heavy metal with melodic vocals and proper tunes' bunch of bands,along with kindred spirits,ghost and portrait.I never listened to old school metal growing up,even though I was the exact right age for it at the time, only discovering metal in 88 with bolt thrower.Now thankfully I can appreciate bands like this and they sound fresh and exciting.Like other bands like Cauldron though,it rocks brilliantly for a while but as an album I tend to not get through the whole thing at once.

It's OK.
Yes OK. Nothing special.
If you want a Mercyful Fate for the modern day then you may well like it.
I liked the Mercyful Fate of the olden days.

So BUY if you want. DON'T buy if you don't want to. It's up to you. Why should you make up your mind based on what some complete stranger on the internet says.

"..say 'hello' to your new favorite band." 17 Jan. 2012
By S. Pelletier - Published on Amazon.com
from TheMetalObserver.com

"The angular and deliberately old school band logo, the Metal Blade logo, band members festooned to the hilt in black leather, a ridiculously over-the-top press sheet stressing blood, fire, and owls (?)... Yep, I was more than convinced that yet another retro Thrash workout was on the table, a prospect I really did not relish in the least bit.

It is with great pleasure, then, that I can report that my preconceived notions were all but blown to smithereens as soon as the first notes of the title track started reverberating through the air. Sweden's IN SOLITUDE are all about the old school, yes, but they've skipped the Thrash trend entirely, opting instead to exhume and reanimate the corpse of early MERCYFUL FATE. Seriously, if you love stuff like "Nuns Have No Fun," "Melissa," and "Don't Break The Oath" - which any self-respecting metalhead should - then go right ahead and say hello to your new favourite band. "The World, The Flesh, The Devil" is so rigidly old sounding that you'd swear the members' musical clocks stopped at around `83/'84. Aside from the legendary Danes, there's also some tasty smatterings of ancient CIRITH UNGOL and MANILLA ROAD strewn about here, and the end result is a seriously fun rollercoaster ride that dips, dives, and blasts right through all manner of old school Heavy, Doom, and Power Metal.

One aspect that immediately counts in the band's favour is the fact that the songs all have a tangible feeling of `completeness' to them, and they don't all just rush the listener to that oh-so-important catchy refrain. It's very un-tacky, in other words. The majority of the songs remain steadily mid-paced, the (relatively) high pitched delivery of Pelle Åhman invokes King Diamond at every turn, and the guitar leads simply kick ass. The infectious melodic cadence of songs like "Poisoned, Blessed, And Burned" and "To Her Darkness" is undeniable, and the epic closer "On Burning Paths" builds up to such a triumphant gallop that you cannot help but grin from ear to ear.

Bottom line, if you seek an album that shamelessly harkens back to the halcyon days of early 80s Metal and basically rocks like it's nobody's business, then put on your leathers, loosen your hair, and bow down at the altar of IN SOLITUDE! " - Metal Observer

4.5 stars - classic, evil, heavy metal 27 April 2012
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
2011's The World, The Flesh, The Devil is the second album from Swedish traditional metal band In Solitude. With their decidedly retro sound and their theatrically sinister lyrics, In Solitude is one of the brighter stars in the whole "evil heavy metal" revivalist scene (along with bands like Portrait and Ghost).

In Solitude has such a great overall sound, and one that draws from a few key influences. Lyrically (and to some extent stylistically), they're obviously drawing from classic Mercyful Fate, while the galloping leads and prominent bass bring to mind Di'Anno era Iron Maiden. Throw in some doomy, Messiah-like vocals and you've got a very compelling end result.

The World, The Flesh, The Devil is somewhat more polished than the debut In Solitude album, but it definitely maintains that retro sound and production. It's got that classic heavy Manilla Road/Cirith Ungol vibe, but still sounds very vital and energetic. Songs like "Serpents are Rising" and "Dance of the Adversary" give you a good idea what to expect here, but all of the songs on the album are equally impressive. There's no filler to be found.

Whether you're a follower of the newer bands like Ghost, Portrait, The Devil's Blood and Blood Ceremony or better yet, an `80s metal warrior who had given up on finding anything modern to go with your Manilla Road and Mercyful Fate albums, In Solitude is a band that is well worth checking out. Whatever camp you're in, The World, The Flesh, The Devil is unlikely to disappoint.

This CD and band are what make me happy about metal today. In Solitude really have a great sound and put together some awesome songs. A win for the fans.

Excellent! 18 Feb. 2012
By AKS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I put off picking this album up for some time - big mistake. Really excellent craftsmanship here - a solid album top to bottom. Influences are early 80s, though its certainly not a knock off album. The guitar/bass sound recalls Killers-era Iron Maiden, maybe Cirith Ungol. Mercyful Fate often gets cited, but I hear this less. Vocals are quite different than all of the above - I actually like In Solitude's front man better. Much smoother. There is a certain polish and melodic sensibility to these guys that recalls country mates Ghost, though the sound is different. Definitely pick up the album - I listened to song snippets and was uninspired but when you hear the whole thing song-after-song you'll understand why this album was on so many top of 2011 lists.

title less 9 Sept. 2011
By dustinbagz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is really cool. its pretty unique. maybe iron maiden crossed with dark tranquility crossed with blue oyster cult. it has a very classic metal feel to it. saw these guys on tour with down and they ruled so i bought the cd and the singer uno was kind enough to sign it for me. i would recomend this album to any open minded metal head. i cant believe noone reviewed this yet.
