35 Years Ago: MERCYFUL FATE release Melissa


I was doing all the music at that time, so I just kept composing, kept composing because I loved to compose. Get up in the middle of the night. I remember when I did "Satan's Fall" that was maybe within a week or two. Every night until 3AM, I was sitting with my guitar and then taking, finding the next part. Back to bed and up again. That was cool.

MERCYFUL FATE released their first masterpiece album, Melissa, on this day in 1983.
