King Diamond - The 7th Day Of July 1777 Lyrics

Count de LaFey uncovered his cheating wife
Nine months of loving and sharing
Oh, it was a bastard child!
How could he have been so blind?!
"No bastard baby will inherit what's mine!"
Another one of her affairs had left him in despair
So he pushed her down the stairs to die
"No!" she cried

In 1777, on the 7th Day of July
The Countess broke her neck
And the embryo came out dead
Then he burned his beloved wife
And the embryo he gave a name
"Abigail, you must rest in shame!
Rest in shame!"

With a strange idea
He wanted to mummify
The girl for the future to find... and he did

So he pushed her down the stairs to die
"No!" she cried
In 1777, on the 7th Day of July...

  52. The Taco Channel

    Best solo on the album hands down

  53. joseph montague

    Gene Simmons sues this guy for makeup similarities...what a douchebag, he would rather see a hard working band crumble for a few bucks...Kiss are not rock and Gene Simmons is a talentless fuck who never gave a shit about nothing but money...could you imagine all your favorite bands acted that way? What a they shit on their own band mates in their shitty autobiographies for more money...only Ace was talented

  54. joseph montague

    Out of all my favorite metal bands when it comes to writing clean riffs, solos and melodies I gotta say Andy Laroque is you'll never see a better show than these guys...they are next to Pantera in making sure their fans have a great time

  55. Nobody At All

    Born 7/7/92!

  56. KE mafia

    hail to the king!

  57. Asum Jessen

    That spine ripping evaporating guitar riff gets me every time.

  58. Megapedro87

    This solo is a masterpiece. He has to be one of the greatest metal solos of all time. It' so emotional...i can't describe it. King a genius. Best album, period.

    Dwhizzle Dizzle

    Reminds me of Randy Rhoads a little. Fucking awesome.

    Acid Hologram

    It is a mastic song for Andy

    Load Game

    Well, if you listened to Abigail II - The Revenge, you would know that Abigail burnt down the mansion 18 years later. You, sir, are lying, since you can't walk these stairs in July anymore.

  78. alexander fernandes valu

    what an atmosphere! Love this introduction and the whole fucking track.
    King is a nice horror- supernatural-occult themes songwriter.

  79. Mario Lomeli

    Came here because my favorite Death album is Individual Thought Patterns...where Andy LaRocque appears.



    He still comes around sometimes...he lives in Dallas TX

    vizagoth x

    he likes texas for for some reason (i live here and i cant understand why anyone would like it but whatever) he used to play san antonio a LOT - merciful fate was eventually blacklisted from every venue here - so they put on shows outside the city limits in, like, cornfields using a flatbed 18 wheeler as a stage...

    Thomas Castrovillo

    @vizagoth x texas sucks

  93. filthyswit

    21 people are Gene Simmons fans.

    Fred Herbert

    Proto Razor kiss sucks!!!


    Actually King was forced to change his makeup, so I wouldn't call that a win... but yeah fuck Gene, he's such a money hungry douchebag, that's why his makeup design is different now. King said it himself that he had respect for him until that happened...

    Chris Oros

    little fucker!

    Nick Waters

    "I wanna be an asshole all night and douchebag everyday." - "Douche" Simmons(I'd call him the Mr. Krabs of rock music)


    @TheMetalWarrior1993 I heard something about King was planning to change his makeup style anyway despite Gene's douchebaggery.

  94. Traveling Adventure Variety

    Alec Sedate

    Baerghet Trulmaelder it's called math take 2017 and subtract 1777 from that and you get their age

    Baerghet Trulmaelder

    Man, you're being really annoying, you know that?
