Went forth to complete a birthday present for LB, the original Phantom of The Opera soundtrack - the best ever, considering first CD set became quite worn. I found the latest production to be rather weak, although the film did have its moments, but this would be for the serious fantom to appreciate - I doubt the herd found any profound meaning in it, even though it was actually brought down to their simplistic level. No, the original is just splendid and truly majestic, as one soars the heights, even from the subterranian labyrinth, The Grotto of Tbe Phantom, therein the darkness, one pure of passion whose heart truly burned with the black flame. Unfortunately, probably one of the most tragic tales ever told however, yet its splendorous rapture is ever possessing. A very pleasing acquisition which has haunted The Noctuary many a time.
Another "Two From The Vault" unleashing caught My attention as I checked for My favored Musicians, and found this treasure - Mercyful Fate's "Don't Break The Oath" & "Return of The Vampire" opuses placed into one set, with full covers included. Also have MF's The Beginning/Melissa, KD's Fatal Portrait/Abigail, Them/Conspiracy, and await more of these marvellous combinations. An upgrade from the cassette tapes I have had all this time, which rest secure in their coffin-shaped case with the complete collection therein. Hail King!
Danzig's How The Gods Kill: Also found this black gem beckoning to Me, so evilution took its course, and it has been incorperated into The Blackthorne Collection as well. That certainly IS Giger's "Master and Margarita" - the CD includes a small poster of it as part of the lyric fold-out. Again, I originally had this on cassette, so now the CD is a most pleasing addition.
