I have been collecting Mercyful Fate and early Queensrÿche since they first started (and for Northern Europe I have quite a connoisseur collection of those 2) earlier of course also genre leadertypes like Metallica and Iron Maiden, alas almost all went into a more popular sound in the nineties but woke up in time and smelled the coffee...all is well that ends well

Fun fact: in some of these early songs live and on demos (like Devil Eyes) one can hear riffs and beginnings of thoughtpatterns leading to newer songs which ended up on Melissa later on in '83 and even the Oath in '84 or just the same song with a polished new arrangement, in the case of Return of the Vampire which is a great song it never ended up on the albums 83/84 but on the '91 album, more mercyful fatalists than me liked the song, it seems, so it finally got a whole album named after it.

I am entering that one right now, it's in my personal collection and found behind a dumpster in Paris, by a local popsinger here in Sweden I knew, he also found some popgroups for himself and took a couple extra ones like this MF which was good for me...he saw them with a bunch of records probably cleared out from a record place there placed neatly on the ground to be thrown away (I also have a GG Allin from the same place from 1987)
