King Diamond won't rush album

King Diamond says he won’t be rushed into putting out his next album – but vows it will be his best work ever.

He and his band were in the middle of writing material for the follow-up to 2007’s Give Me Your Soul… Please when they were offered a place on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival alongside Anthrax, Hellyeah and The Devil Wears Prada.

Diamond tells Full Metal Jackie: “My home studio is ready now to go, but this tour is very important to do.

“We don’t want to be rushed with writing a new album. We are going to take our time, and it’s going to be the best you’ve ever heard from us — there’s no doubt in my mind. We have all the tools at our fingertips this time.”

He adds: “it’s always great to come off a tour and then start writing, because you’re very, very inspired. I am, certainly.”

King Diamond last year issued best of compilation Dream Of Horror.
