Mercyful Fate will reunite for one show (so far) in Denmark at Copenhell festival that takes place on 17-20 June in Copenhagen. The band’s lineup will feature King Diamond on vocals, Hank Shermann on guitar, Bjarne T. Holm on drums, Mike Wead on guitar and Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning) on bass. “We asked Joey Vera to fill in because he has a very unique style and sound playing with his fingers, much like that of Timi Hansen” said King Diamond. This is very important, since the setlist will only consist of songs from the very first ‘mini LP’, the ‘Melissa’ album, and the ‘Don’t Break The Oath’ album, plus some brand new songs written specifically in that very same style. This will very much be Mercyful Fate as we were in the very beginning, except for a brand new major stage production”, he added.
