Death Metal at it's finest

Not quite Justin. Mecyful Fate are often considered black metal pioneers. Mainly for thier often cartoonish image and tongue in cheek dark lyrics. Though I tend to think of them as a thrash band because in reality most thrash bands were much heavier then them. Also, when King Diamond is singing he is usually not using "cookie monster" growls that are popular with death metal. He actually has a very good vocal range. So they are not a death metal band.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
