I don't actually know exactly, but yeah, the slowed down version of Mary on a Cross is is what started getting them more mainstream attention, for better or for worse.

I have to admit, for a Swedish band with a hokey, masked, pseudo-Satanic image and lyrics, and a musical mashup of Blue Oyster Cult, Mercyful Fate and Abba (in the beginning), their subsequent large success in the US has been surprising and impressive. I never saw that coming! I remember the controversy during the recording, and later cover art, of their second album, and in interviews at the time, Papa/Tobias indicated that he wasn't expecting the band to ever get that big in the US due to their Satanic angle, considering how religious the US is compared to their home country (and continent).

"Rite here, rite now" concert film tickets are available now at AMC. So on 6/20 my theater is showing it at 7pm in Laser and on 6/22 at 3pm, also in Laser. That's it. It's literally 2 showings on two different days. It's also 2hr 25mins.


I'll just wait until the BD is released.
