That's a word often over-used in reviews but seldom does it really do an album justice as much as it does this. The second half of Fate's career is often overlooked by fans of the band, thanks to some dull and tired releases in the form of The Unknown and 9, but this record (released between the two aforementioned albums) is a gem.

This is the rawest album of their nineties material and the most energetic after In The Shadows. King's voice is on top form despite endless touring to support his latest solo release of the time. Each song has a very strong rythmn section to it - making the influences this band had on Metallica more than obvious - but the soloing is what completes this album, with Hank Shermann and Mike Wead exhibiting a significant amount of tunefulness in their twin lead dueling!

This album seemed to go largely un-noticed by the media and fans alike as it was 1998 when straight up riff driven, eighties style metal in the vein of older Mercyful Fate records was not in "fashion". Disgusting, I know but what can you do?

If you are a fan of MF and you want to expand your collection I strongly recommend this record to you. Sure it won't win any new fans for the band but it is consistent and solid metal for metal heads sticking two fingers up to the trends of it's time.

When considering the absolutely staggering metal masterpieces Mercyful Fate put out in the 80's most of the later output can be considered a bit disappointing, `Dead Again' is no exception to this. Rather than breathtaking and revolutionary such as `Melissa' or `Don't Break the Oath' `Dead Again' seems like a tired band trotting out the same formula...lacking the vitality of those seminal early works.

It seems that during the period in which King Diamond chose to keep both Mercyful Fate and King Diamond active the quality of the albums really suffered. You can seldom find a bad review of either bands stagnant late 90's output. Shame really as its probably misled some innocent metalhead's into buying some stinkers.

For the most part `Dead Again' doesn't really do anything new for the band it just comes across as a weaker version of 1994's `Time' which was hardly classic Mercyful Fate. In my opinion there is only one excellent song on this album, `Banshee' which actually does sound like the band pushing the boat out a bit, it's not the heaviest song here by a long short however it has some lovely melodic touches that convey an atmosphere of evil and menace far better than any of Hank Shermann's generally half baked riff work (on this album, I must stress). Other songs have occasional flashes of light, but on the whole `Dead Again' plods along simply feeling like just another Mercyful Fate release. `Torture (1629)' is driven along by a main riff which I feel simply doesn't fit Mercyful Fate and the chorus is good yet King's vocals sound stressed and weak. `The Night', again Mercyful Fate by numbers, generic riffs and King's usual lyrical nuances y'know the occult...in the 80's there was a genuine feeling of conviction to his lyrics but these feel forced.

HASH(0x8be0f54c) out of 5 stars "Dead Again" 30 Sept. 2005
By Tony G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Dead Again" is a tough album for this reviewer to critique. The legendary Mercyful Fate is up there as one of my top three favorite bands of all time and I must say that this is probably their weakest album. That being said, it still contains some truly powerful moments. "Torture (1629)" opens the album perfectly. A sinister little song about the trial and execution of a "witch". "Banshee" is an atmospheric, slower-paced number and vocalist King Diamond wails beautifully on it. The highlight of the entire album is probably "The Lady Who Cried". The song tells of a crying Virgin Mary statue that houses an evil force within. Excellent lyrics and superb instrumentals make this one a true gem. Another standout track is the highly personal "Fear", which finds Kim Bendix Petersen examining his stage persona, alter-ego King Diamond. Unfortunately, the rest of the album doesn't hold up quite as well. Songs like "The Night" and "Mandrake" aren't terrible, but they leave something to be desired. "Since Forever" and "Crossroads" are slightly better but there's not alot of magic or originality to them. The real bummer is "Sucking Your Blood" which sounds like nothing more than a demo, and a bad demo at that. And then we come to the title track. The band gets kudos for the experimental nature and stream of consciousness lyrical feel of it, but the tune pretty much falls flat. It's too long and rambling to have much of an effect. In conclusion, it must be said that although I consider this album to be the band's worst, it is by no means bad. To date, Mercyful Fate has never given us a subpar album. Even on the most mediocre tracks, the musicians provide us with some blistering guitar work, pounding drums and of course, marvelous vocals. To be completely honest, the worst that Fate might do is still far better than what's considered the "best" from other bands.

HASH(0x8c220fd8) out of 5 stars Ho-hum... 19 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although there are some standouts (Torture [1629], Banshee, Fear), this album is boring. It's a good listen every-now-and-then, but it just does not do much for me. The music is not as well writ as the classics `Don't Break the Oath` and `Melissa.`
If you are a die hard, I recommend this. If not, you won't be missing much if you just pass this by (and go, RIGHT NOW, buy Melissa or Don't Break the Oath!)

HASH(0x8bbca030) out of 5 stars Mercyful Fate - 'Dead Again' (Metal Blade) 4 Oct. 2006
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Fairly decent 1998 CD release from the Danish black metal merchants. Still somewhat amazed they even ever reunited awhile back as they have. Better cuts found here are the somewhat humorous "The Lady Who Cries", "Banshee", the heavy-duty "Sucking Your Blood" and the 14-minute title track "Dead Again". Some have said that every member except for Diamond puts in a full-hearted effort in the making of this record. See what you think. Line-up: King Diamond - vocals, Hank Sherman & Mike Weed - guitars, Sharlee D'Angelo - bass and Bjarne T. Holm - drums. Maybe not a classic, but certainly no sleeper.

HASH(0x8bf5ba2c) out of 5 stars Possibly the worst KD/MF album... 22 Aug. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I haven't heard them all, but this one isn't very good. The recording quality is great, the skill of the guitars and drums is pretty good, and King sings like (his) normal, but after listening to this several times I still can't remember any of the tunes. That compares to In the Shadows, Time, or Spiders Lullabye where I can hum several tunes in my sleep. Like one of the other reviews said, its kind of boring and doesn't really grab your attention. Some will like it if they are really into the style, but there are better albums.

By Sealed Fate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
no mercyful fate album deserves less than four stars,but this one pushes that notion.some tracks are really great,some sound a little tired.i think that is the key word here,"tired".

just doesnt come across as that inspired.having said that,though,it BLOWS away the vast majority of what is tagged "metal" nowadays..................
