      King Diamond's eighth album (1998).

      'Voodoo' sounds like a step in the right direction from a band teetering perilously on the edge of mediocrity, as King Diamond and his Danish boys serve up a heavier and angrier affair than the comparatively melodic previous albums. Andy LaRoque's hard riffs and frantic solos possess a lot more energy than they've had in years, and King Diamond's vocals commendably remain predominantly in the lower range, only using his trademark banshee wails for accentuation.

      This album's lyrical concept concerns a wealthy nineteenth-century family moving to a mansion in the Louisiana swamps, and their subsequent right-wing attempts to eradicate the local voodoo community. As ever, it's not the most original plot King Diamond has penned, but it provides an excellent framework for the album's musical journey, not to mention that the twist ending is undeniably cool. Stand-out songs include the energetic and catchy title track, featuring a guest solo from the late Dimebag Darrell of Pantera (incredibly overrated, but let's not speak ill of the dead), and the subsequent tracks that follow a thrash metal approach. This is the best King Diamond album since 'Conspiracy.'
