Mercyful Fate guitarist Hank Shermann has announced his solo project called Shermann Tank which promises to bring "crushing brutality, relentless guitar attacks and vocals from the depths of hell-dark and melodically captivating!" Fair enough. Marc Grabowski will be handling vocals and bass. For now, check out the trailer below. You can expect the debut album to come out next year.
Shermann explains: "After touring with Volbeat for all of 2012, I decided it was time for me to start working on my first solo output. Things developed really fast and I joined forces with my good friend Marc Grabowski to handle vocals and bass! I've known Marc since the mid-90s and was already impressed with his potential back then. Now it's full circle. Songwriting is full steam ahead and it really kicks hard, very hard!"
"This is going to be my dream guitar album ever! I'm putting all my 35 years of guitar experience into this album..."
