Merciful Fate Medley, Evil


Hey there. Here I am at work, listening to music as I work, and Metallica's medley of Merciful Fate songs came on. I love me their version, even though Diamond's version of Curse of the Pharaohs says "hexed" and I swear Metallica's version says "Hecked". Anyways, as it got to into Evil, I couldn't help but notice that this song has eerily connections to Todd McFarlane's Spawn. I love me some Spawn so I was able to make the connection and I don't know if McFarlane took inspiration from Evil. Check out this verse from Evil:

I was born in the cemetery
Under the sign of the moon
Raised from my grave by the dead
And I was made a mercenary
In the legions of Hell
Now I'm king of pain, I'm insane, yeah

Don't you think that describes Spawn? Al's death and resurrection. To be "raised from my grave" and be forced to be a "mercenary". I think the strongest line there is "In the legions of hell". Spawn was meant to be in control of the hellspawns, his battles with Malbogia and Urizen, plus the loss of Angela all come to mind. I just can't help but thinking of Spawn when hearing this. What do you think? Later.
