Anyone familiar with 80's metal should be familiar with the mighty Mercyful Fate and their classic guitar duo of Michael Denner and Hank Shermann. While MF hasn't been a recording entity in some time, both guitarists (especially Shermann) have kept busy in the new millennium with side projects, and this obviously-titled project is the latest. The pair was last seen together in Force Of Evil back in the early 2000's, and that band is the prime blueprint for this go-around, with Denner and Shermann bashing out prime MF-style riffs with a more modern power metal vocalist (here, Sean Peck of Cage). A four-track EP, Satan's Tomb, started the proceedings in 2015, with a debut full-length to follow in mid-2016.
