EP196: Mercyful Fate “Melissa”

How much of our love of Mercyful Fate is based on nostalgia versus the fact that they were an incredibly innovative, talented band with great songs?  As a relative newbie to the band Rod helps us answer the question as we dive deep into their classic first LP while touching on their equally great follow up Don’t Break the Oath, discuss the conviction in the bands approach and debate how many riffs is too many riffs.   

RIP Jerry Lee Lewis 
RIP Timi Hansen
