King Diamond: Ghost lyder ikke som Mercyful Fate. De lyder som..

Svenske Ghost har opnået stor succes med deres to albums, og bliver ofte sammenlignet med Mercyful Fate.

I et interview med Musik Universe bliver danske King Diamond konfronteret med sammenligningen. Men Kongen hører på ingen måde dette. Til forskel fra King Diamond og Mercyful Fate har Ghost kun få guitarsoloer, en helt anden vokal og svenskeren er meget mere melodiske. I stedet mener King Diamond at Ghost lyder som.... Blue Öyster Cult.

Uddrag fra interview

They don't remind me of KING DIAMOND or MERCYFUL FATE at all. I don't hear it. I mean, there's barely any guitar solos in GHOST. We can barely start a song before we have three guitar solos. [Laughs] There's not the complex riffing [in GHOST] that's going on. With GHOST, it's much more… I would compare them much more to BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, you know. They are very melodic, I think, [and] there's no falsetto singing at all. It doesn't remind me of KING DIAMOND or MERCYFUL FATE at all, actually. I heard one riff that reminded me of a MERCYFUL FATE riff, but it had a whole different sound. It was not like I said, 'Oh, man, they're stealing [our ideas].' Not at all."
