Denner/Shermann Band Photo 2015

Michael Denner and Hank Shermann are the legendary guitar duo behind the pioneering Danish metal outfit Mercyful Fate (the band that also gave us King Diamond). These axe masters are back with a new eponymous band. Denner/Shermann has just released its debut EP via powerhouse label Metal Blade Records on October 2, 2015.

Satan’s Tomb contains 4 tracks that would have been right at home on any of Mercyful Fate’s classic albums. Sean Peck‘s vocals even bear a striking resemblance to King Diamond. The band is rounded out by bassist Marc Grabowski and drummer Snowy Shaw, the latter of whom is also a King Diamond alum.

Metallica and Mercyful Fate

Today’s Thrashback Thursday is a two-for-one deal. Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich and King Diamond (aka Kim Bendix Peterson) are Danish countrymen. The two have been close friends for some time. Metallica even recorded their breakthrough second album, 1984’s Ride The Lightning in the studio owned by King Diamond and his band Mercyful Fate.

So strong is Metallica’s reverence for Mercyful Fate that they have, for many years, been performing a medley consisting of several of the band’s songs (“Satan’s Fall,” “Curse of the Pharaohs,” “A Corpse Without Soul,” “Into the Coven,” and “Evil”) which they simply call “Mercyful Fate.” A recorded version of the tribute appeared on Metallica’s Garage Inc.

When Metallica made a stop in King Diamond’s adopted hometown of Dallas Texas in 2008, they invited the King himself to join them onstage to lend his iconic lead vocals to the medley. Check out the footage of that performance here below.
