Mercyful Fate @ Copenhell 2020!

King Diamond @ Copenhell

As my summer festival season is approaching an end, I was thinking that now there are close to no bands left that I really want to see that I haven’t. And then this showed up in my email….

“The legendary Danish heavy metal band MERCYFUL FATE will make a spectacular return at next year’s COPENHELL festival in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Almost 40 years ago, singer King Diamond and guitarist Hank Shermann created what would later become the most iconic and influential Danish heavy metal band ever…

The band will perform (at 2020 Copenhell) with the “9” lineup featuring Hank Shermann (guitar), King Diamond (vocals), Bjarne T. Holm (drums), Mike Wead (guitar) and Joey Vera (Bass)… the set list will only consist of songs from the very first ‘mini LP’, the “Melissa” and “Don’t Break The Oath” albums plus some brand new songs written specifically in that very same style.”

And now I really must get back to Copenhagen next summer!

Yes, I’ve seen King Diamond a few times (including back in the 1980s), but I don’t like any of his albums nearly as much as I love Melissa and Don’t Break The Oath, and he barely touches those albums live anymore.

Happy birthday, Michael Amott!

Sometimes when you see a band that you know you will be seeing again soon, even if you enjoy their performance, you think, “I don’t really need to see them again so soon.” Such was not the case after seeing Slægt at 2019 Copenhell. Instead, I’m very excited to see them again–at Metal Magic in about 10 days and at Brutal Assault in August.

“Is haka metal? Well, it is now.”

This video is pretty cool, although the sound quality is not good, especially for the music.

The next photo is from Morten Skovgaard. Yours truly is sporting the backwards A’s cap in the bottom of this photo.
