  • Blabbermouth reports according to a posting on MERCYFUL FATE guitarist Hank Shermann's Facebook page, Shermann and fellow MERCYFUL FATE guitarist Michael Denner recently got back together to play the band's "Melissa" album. A video of the session — which took place at Denner's apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark — will be released on October 30 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the LP.  MERCYFUL FATE will always be remembered for their unquestionable mark on the history of metal, with their new innovative sound, complex arrangements, memorable melody, and their influence on bands that later took the genre to new heights, according to Wikipedia.  In 1998, METALLICA paid tribute to MERCYFUL FATE by recording a medley of classic MERCYFUL FATE songs on the album "Garage Inc." Entitled "Mercyful Fate", the medley included parts from "Satan's Fall", "Curse of the Pharaohs", "A Corpse Without Soul", "Into the Coven" and "Evil".  Lars Ulrich of METALLICA (a fellow Dane) played drums on a new version of "Return of the Vampire" on the "In the Shadows"album, which came out in 1993.
