There are 1 comment on the 104.7 WIOT story from Dec 26, 2011, titled At One With Nothing. In it, 104.7 WIOT reports that:

Groups like Venom, Mercyful Fate, and Slayer may have founded death metal in the early '80s, but it wasn't until such disciples as Morbid Angel came along at the close of the decade that the genre was pushed to its most extreme level, both musically and lyrically.

This is one thing I have against Genre's. The pioneers get pushed aside and not really get the credit they well deserve.
And I thought Mercyful Fate would be closer to Black Metal, as it states in liner notes of the 'Melissa' album, because they were influenced by Coven (US band 1967-1990's) whom they borrowed directly from for their song 'The Oath' with word for word copy of Coven's version of the Satanic Mass (from 1969 album -Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls) and band Coven were doing back from 68-71 on stage what these black metal bands are doing today...King Diamond said he was influenced by Coven. Thats why I have a problem with Mercyful Fate in the Death Metal genre.
