The King? On here? Nope nope nope nope
There is nothing "wimpy" about King Diamond's vocal approach. The purpouse is to add to the haunting atmosphere and to send shivers down the spine of the listener, as opposed to throttling them with power, as someone like Bruce Dickinson does. - Caleb9000
Great guitar riffs, but really wimpy, annoying high pitched voice.
