MERCYFUL FATE Set to Return in 2020!

In some of the best metal news I’ve heard all year…It was announced today that legendary black metal band MERCYFUL FATE will return to do live shows in 2020! Once again led by the eponymous King Diamond, the band will be playing European shows during the summer of 2020. Get more details right here!

As per King Diamond:

NEVER BREAK THE OATH

Mercyful Fate will be playing an unspecified number of concerts throughout Europe during the summer of 2020, including Copenhell.

It will be the “9” lineup, featuring:

Hank Shermann – Guitar

King Diamond – Vocals

Bjarne T Holm – Drums

Mike Wead – Guitar

with Joey Vera on the bass while Timi Hansen is away.

We asked Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning) to fill in because he has a very unique style and sound playing with his fingers, much like that of Timi Hansen. 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.

See you at the Ruined Bridge.

Stay Heavy

Mercyful Fate
