We have been waiting for this. For a long time. Perhaps the most legendary and iconic of them all, Mercyful Fate is back. The band will play several carefully selected shows throughout Europe during summer of 2022. We are extremely proud to announce that Tuska 2022 is among the selected few.
Mercyful Fate was formed in Denmark in 1981 by guitarist Hank Shermann and vocalist King Diamond. The group’s classic metal with a progressive twist and lyrics themed around occultism and satanism quickly lifted Mercyful Fate to a cult status.
You know all that already, don’t you? What you may not know is that the setlist for the upcoming shows will consist of songs from the very first “mini LP”, the “Melissa” album, the “Don’t Break The Oath” album and some brand new songs.
Never break the oath!
