King Diamond releases Give Me Your Soul...Please
Give Me Your Soul...Please is a concept album by King Diamond released on June 26, 2007.
The album's concept and cover art are both based on a painting titled "My Mother's Eyes." The black cat featured in the album is based on King's own cat, Magic.
In the July/August issue of UK metal magazine Zero Tolerance, Diamond elaborated on the themes of the album, being a story of two dead children, murdered by their father, relating their tale to him. He stated that cases of parents killing their children and then themselves were a large influence, citing such an incident which occurred in Dallas four days before the interview took place. Coincidently, Give Me Your Soul was also released the day after the highly publicized Chris Benoit double murder and suicide.
