SUIDAKRA Cimbric Yarns

Well, perhaps this is not the best offering from Suidakra, but at least, it’s not so bad as it seems that everyone’s complaining. Cimbric Yarns is an all acoustic albums from Suidakra, maybe not done in their possible way, since we have already learned that they could have very nice acoustic ballads inspired by Celtic…

KING DIAMOND Songs For The Dead Live

Finally, after all the painful years of waiting the best of the best has returned with the first sign of recording activity!
