King Diamond is pretty well in my opinion the greatest lyricist and vocalst ever but thats just me. And I really think a lot of people call him the father of black metal on the sheer fact of how many black metal bands early on and even now consider his use of atmosphere and his horror story style of lyrics to be a major inspiration as well as the overtly satanic lyrics of Mercyful Fate. So I think it seems to fit from a certain perspective.

King Diamond and Mercyful Fate are of course awesome.

As for being the father of black metal I think that's a bit of a stretch. You have a lot of the style and themes but musically it's not really anywhere near black metal. They perhaps helped set up the stage for black metal though.

That's the general idea. It was the themes and the atmospheres they set up not the sound and perhaps some of the image.
