disorienting shrieking

what it is: disorienting shrieking
where i found it: early 80s denmark

Probably no one in metal has ever matched the heights of Mercyful Fate's pairing of incredible musicianship/odd compositional choices and blood curdling abstract disorienting shrieking. Like opera gone oh so wrong. Here's their first album, which I have not been able to stop listening to this week:

FIRST ALBUM


And I quote:

You've gotta say goodbye
'Cause I will eat your mind

---

The curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly
Or just destroying your future
Makin' it all shady

Now bats are leaving their trees
