Profanity TV has uploaded video footage of KING DIAMOND’s July 26 performance at the Metaldays festival in Tolmin, Slovenia. Check it out below.
KING DIAMOND in December signed a new three-album worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records.
After a six-year touring hiatus, KING DIAMOND triumphantly returned to the stage in 2012 for European festivals Hellfest and Sweden Rock.
King, 56, whose real name is Kim Bendix Petersen, underwent open-heart triple-bypass surgery in November 2010. He has since completed his cardiac rehabilitation program and has stopped smoking entirely, changed his diet and is getting regular exercise.
In a February 2013 interview with Metal Sucks, King Diamond stated: “I had to change my diet and become a nutritional expert, eat much better food. I stopped smoking; haven’t had a drag. [My wife] Livia quit, too. We walk at least five days a week.
“I felt the benefits during two shows we did [last year]. My voice is now clearer than when I started singing. It was like always driving a used car and suddenly you have enough money to buy a new car. It felt brand new! That’s how my voice feels.
