The track “Room 24″ features a massive coup for Volbeat with the guest appearance from King Diamond, the legendary front man of Danish metal pioneers Mercyful Fate, and one of Poulsen’s musical idols. Volbeat reveals, “I’m a huge fan of Mercyful Fate and King Diamond. Having King on the record is a huge privilege. Normally, it’s not something he does. He wrote his own lines, and it is half my lyrics and half his. It’s a weird, scary story, and he’s the perfect person for it.”

Quoteth the warty one, Oderus Urungus, lead singer of GWAR:
“The Fate or Chaos” show is the most spectacular show we have done since the one we did before this one, and that one was awesome, even though I can’t remember what it was. Now GWAR’s struggle against your angry God is to be broadcast live by AXS TV and preserved for all eternity, an undying testimony to the undimmed majesty of the world’s most outrageous rock and roll band…the mighty GWAR!
