To sum up a Best of Album for Mercyful Fate is pretty hard to decide, and there are surely songs missing from this record that should be included. Every song on here is nothing but pure brilliance. The songs themselves in theme are quite formulaic ( ie, the dead, Satan, black arts) but that's the general appeal to people who have a certain interest in those themes like myself

Due to their importance and influence, the group made a logical choice for a "best-of treatment" when Roadrunner Records began assembling such sets for their catalog artists of yesteryear. The 14-track collection focuses on the group's early releases, 1983's Melissa, 1984's Don't Break the Oath, and 1987's The Beginning, the latter just so happens to have been recorded during their "classic" period.

Mercyful Fate Albums: Melissa, Don't Break the Oath, In the Shadows, Time, Into the Unknown. Members: Hank Shermann, King Diamond, Sharlee D'Angelo, Bjarne T. Holm, Mike Wead.

Due to their importance and influence, the group made a logical choice for a "best-of treatment" when Roadrunner Records began assembling such sets for their catalog artists of yesteryear.

Satan’s Fall, probably the best song made by Mercyful Fate, more than 11 minutes of riff mayhem, eerie vocals, outstanding guitar solos and some odd time signatures; at his time it could be one of the most experimental metal songs and it is a big influence on Progressive Metal and Technical Metal  . The great thing about the compilation is that even the last tracks of the album are worth of listen, most of the compilations usually put the artist’s popular tracks, even if their bad.
