Mercyful Fate - Celebrate 30th Anniversary Of 'Melissa' Album

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Mercyful Fate's Melissa album which happens to be today, Mercyful Fate guitarist Michael Denner and Hank Shermann played riffs from all songs on the album, originally released on October 30th, 1983. You can watch the 11-minute full version video below right now and just enjoy the memories.

Shermann and fellow guitarist Michael Denner recently got back together to play the band's Melissa album. A video of the session which took place at Denner's apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark was recorded.

After so many years, what is your favourite track on that album?

Wow, the chemistry between Shermann and Denner is still there! Would love to see Mercyful Fate back together one last time to play this album in it's entirety...

I slightly prefer "Melissa" to "Don't Break The Oath". Don't get me wrong, I love the latter album too, but "Melissa" is just a masterpiece of metal, and has to be one of the finest metal albums ever made. Oath is also a classic, but if only one MF album could be kept in a capsule for prosterity, I'd definitely choose "Melissa". lol

Definitely an all time favourite. Top song for me would probably be either "Evil" or "Black Funeral" (all hail Satan - YES HAIL SATAN) but they're all stone cold classics.

Best track?
"Evil" of course.
