All Music Guide - Andy Hinds
On King Diamond's eighth concept album, the prolific horror rocker hasn't entirely run out of ideas, although the material on Voodoo is generally predictable. Set in New Orleans, the story line is loaded with more witchcraft, haunted houses, and ghosts. The music stays true to form as well; Diamond's cartoonishly ghastly vocals haven't lost any of their bite, long running sideman Andy LaRocque maintains his own high level of proficiency on the guitar, and the band in general turn in dependably workmanlike performances. Overall, King Diamond achieves a sort of musical equivalent to the classic Hammer horror films of the 1960s. He invests a sincere enthusiasm in his work that ...

    Like The Graveyard but better

    King uses the same black metal style as for the graveyard, but the instruments are much better. The vocals are not as good for most of it, but more beautifully done at times and a great story with tales of voodoo priestesses, ghosts, and possession. The best track is probably 'One Down, Two To Go', starting out softly and exploding into black metal. Anyway, a great album to get if you liked The Graveyard, but if you hated his new style, skip this one and try the classics (Fatal Portrait, Abigail, THEM, The Eye, Conspiracy). (Personally I love it, but everybodys got their opinions)

    Life After the Graveyard?

    King Diamond's album "Voodoo" is a little bit boring cause King has done this kinds of songs since 1983. Maybe the new lyrics are more darker but we have heard this kinds of stories enough. The instruments have failed a little bit but not disturbingly.
