Danish heavy metal band King Diamond was formed in 1985 in Copenhagen from the ashes of the pioneering black metal band Merciful Fate. Abigail, their second studio album and first concept album, tells the story of Miriam Natias and Jonathan La'Fey, a young couple who move into an old mansion in the summer of 1845, despite cryptic warnings of disaster from seven horsemen. Jonathan is met on their first night in the house by the Family Ghost, a deceased relative who relays the tale of betrayal, murder and the angry spirit of a restless child long passed (Abigail). He is forewarned that Abigail will be reborn through Miriam and that Miriam must be sacrificed to prevent the rebirth. Several omens confirm the tale to be true, but Miriam and Jonathan's attempts to change their fate end in tragedy and horror ensues at the hands of Abigail…
