MERCYFUL FATE Classic Guitar Tandem Celebrate “Don’t Break The Oath” (Video)

Tuesday, 14th October 2014

MERCYFUL FATE guitarists Hank Shermann and Michael Denner have posted a video of themselves playing the band’s classic Don’t Break The Oath album to celebrate the LP’s 30th anniversary can be seen below.

Says Shermann: “With the overwhelming feedback from the ‘Melissa’ 30-year anniversary video [which was released last year], it was obvious that [we] were going to do the same event with Don’t Break The Oath We think the fans like to see how it’s really played by the original guitar players, so we tuned and tweaked the guitars and amps as we did back in 1984. This is as close as you’ll get it.”

Highlights of all songs were performed live with two guitars and two amps. Part two of the video will be released at the end of October.

Denner and Shermann recently joined forces in a new project called DENNER/SHERMANN.

Said Shermann: “Besides working with our own respective bands, SHERMANN TANK and DENNERS TRICKBAG, we now have the opportunity to extend the collaboration we started with MERCYFUL FATE in the early ’80s.”

Added Michael: “Yeah, we’re super excited to play together again and get the twin guitars into action once more.”
