Not too long ago the band
was added to these pages, mentioning their major
influences in the process.
But Attic (from Germany, unlike Portrait from Sweden)
takes it to another level entirely.
Naturally, it starts with the vocals --
Meister Cagliostro doesn't just sound similar to King Diamond, he's
practically a clone, his higher range and style is eerily similar
to King in his heyday.
The similarities don't end there, though -- the songs themselves
derive so strongly from Mercyful Fate and King's early solo works
that "MF clones" is the only proper tag for these guys.
Bands like this, so singularly focused on replicating a signature
sound from the past, either flame out or develop their own style on
Time will tell which course Attic takes moving forward.
