This is what King Diamond has to say concerning the music video:
“Masquerade Of Insanity” was launched digitally in 2019 earlier than our North American tour. Throughout rehearsals, we took one full day to movie “Masquerade Of Insanity” with David Brodsky and Allison Woest. We spent all day and all night time recording whereas performing the track with our full tour stage present choreography. After the tour, covid occurred.
“The video was all however forgotten because the world got here to a standstill – we by no means noticed a single body from all of the footage. Years later, as issues started to choose up and writing started for each new Mercyful Fate and King Diamond data, we questioned, what occurred to that video from 4 years in the past? So we determined to test in with David Brodsky and a few weeks later, we had the primary reduce of the video.
“I used to be speechless! I had nothing to criticize and after only a few notes from Andy LaRocque, the video for “Masquerade Of Insanity” was completed! There’s a lot temper and black and white is utilized in an ideal approach with Jodi’s performances. The visuals match the music flawlessly and that is now amongst my favourite King Diamond movies together with “Sleepless Nights” and “Welcome Dwelling” – and to not overlook after all, our double reside DVD.
“This new video and the discharge of “Masquerade Of Insanity” on 12″ vinyl is our Halloween reward to the followers. We hope you take pleasure in this as a lot as we do! Glad Halloween, it’s not only a dream!”
