Last night, Metal Blade Records and Metal Injection hosted a screening party at the famed Saint Vitus Bar where those in attendance would be able to enjoy the brand-new King Diamond video release “Songs For The Dead Live”. The event was open to the general public and featured plenty of fans and assorted press and media entities.

The event comes care of Kings record label Metal Blade Records and those providers of entertainment over at Metal Injection. After the jump you can learn all of the necessary details on how to attend.
