DENNER / SHERMANN – Satan’s Tomb
The infamous Mercyful Fate guitar duo of Michael Denner and Hank Shermann returns with a new band and a 4 song EP "Satan’s Tomb". Cage vocalist Sean Peck, bassist Marc Grabowski, and drummer Snowy Shaw round out the lineup, and this is ideal for those who miss the heavy metal leanings of their past. Set your head to stun taking in the speedier "War Witch" where Shaw’s double bass/ stellar fill skills weave magic around the shredding and diverse, catchy riff combinations – while "Seven Skulls" has those exotic flavorings that transport the brain back to 1984.
Sean use his multi-octave singing and screams to carry the vocal load – capable of recalling everyone from Halford to the almighty King Diamond, but doing his best to inject his own personality into the proceedings for the six minute "New Gods". Welcome back gentlemen- may the next release be a full-length.
