KING DIAMOND will get the jigsaw puzzle treatment this fall.
“Abigail” will be made available on October 9, 2020 as a 500-piece puzzle.
Zee Productions will release the album cover as a jigsaw via its Rock Saws imprint. The iconic arts of some of rock’s most influential and highly regarded albums is presented in puzzle form for the first time ever. All puzzles come in a vinyl-box-set-sized box, perfect to fit alongside a vinyl record collection.
Back in April 2019, Zee Productions launched its new range of rock and metal jigsaw puzzles, Rock Saws.
The first collection included jigsaws based on some of the greatest albums in heavy metal history from IRON MAIDEN, MOTÖRHEAD, JUDAS PRIEST and SLAYER.
Released in September 2019 were the first four classic METALLICA album covers as 500-piece jigsaws (“Kill ‘Em All”, “Ride The Lightning”, “Master Of Puppets” and “…And Justice For All”) as well as four classic RUSH album covers (“Fly By Night”, “A Farewell To Kings”, “Permanent Waves” and “Moving Pictures”).

Last November, KING DIAMOND released a brand new song called “Masquerade Of Madness”. Mixed by guitarist Andy La Rocque and singer King Diamond at Sonic Train Studios, the track will appear on KING DIAMOND‘s first studio album in more than 12 years, “The Institute”, which will tentatively be released in 2021 via Metal Blade Records.
KING DIAMOND received a Grammy nomination in the “Best Metal Performance” category for the track “Never Ending Hill” off the band’s last album, 2007’s “Give Me Your Soul … Please”.
KING DIAMOND released a DVD/Blu-ray, “Songs For The Dead Live”, in January 2019 via Metal Blade Records. The set captures 1987’s seminal “Abigail” album in its entirety, twice, and in very different locales: Belgium’s Graspop Metal Meeting in June 2016 and Philadelphia’s Fillmore in November 2015. The performances feature KING DIAMOND‘s current band, comprising of guitarists La Rocque and Mike Wead, bassist Pontus Egberg and drummer Matt Thompson.
