Next month, King Diamond will release CD and LP versions of the classic albums Conspiracy (May 1st), Them (May 1st), The Eye (May 15th), and In Concert 1987 (May 15th) via Metal Blade Records. The vinyl editions feature spined sleeves with an insert and download card; the CDs contain a mini-LP CD-insert with a small fold-out poster.

King Diamond adds, “These are not remasters. These are the albums as they were originally done in the old days from the original production masters. They retain all the original dynamics that were captured at the time. It’s very exciting to present these to fans as they were originally released.”
