Digitally remastered by Chris Gehringer (The Hit Factory, New York, New York). This release includes a bonus DVD featuring live footage and commentary from King Diamond. Widely recognized as King Diamond's solo masterpiece, Abigail is also unquestionably one of heavy metal's greatest concept albums.

||Abigail is a classic,but................|
Abigail is indeed King's finest release,along with Fatal Portrait. What more can be said that hasn't about this classic? The only drawback which I think ruins the live performance,is Michael Moon(Michael Denner left shortly after the album's release)-Mr Moon's performance is terrible-his solos are out of key,and he totally butchered Michael Denner's godly solos.
