DENNER'S INFERNO Feat. MERCYFUL FATE Guitarist MICHAEL DENNER: 'In Amber' Album Details Announced

September 9, 2019

DENNER'S INFERNO, the new band featuring legendary KING DIAMOND and MERCYFUL FATE guitar player and composer Michael Denner, will release its debut album, "In Amber", on November 15 through Mighty Music.

Denner is a very well-known name in the international rock/metal scene, as a former guitarist in the two most influential Danish rock/metal bands ever: MERCYFUL FATE and KING DIAMOND. Denner contributed with his distinctive guitar style and songwriting on classic MERCYFUL FATE albums such as "Melissa" (1983),"Don't Break The Oath" (1984) and also the KING DIAMOND classics "Fatal Portrait" (1986) and "Abigail" (1987).

Now, it's time for Denner to start a new adventure: DENNER'S INFERNO. Joining him are American vocalist Chandler Mogel (OUTLOUD, PUNKY MEADOWS, RADIO EXILE),bassist Flemming Muus (TRICKBACK, JOYTOWN) and a drummer with a common MERCYFUL FATE link, Bjarne T Holm (played in the '90s and also involved in the reunion recently announced). Together, they play heavy metal that should appeal to fans of MERCYFUL FATE, CANDLEMASS and '70s retro rock.

DENNER'S INFERNO released its debut EP, "Fountain Of Grace", on August 24 on vinyl and CD.

The band was born from the ashes of TRICKBACK in 2018 with a new, renewed lineup with '70s prog hard rock meeting doom influences.

Denner comments: "After a lot of thoughts around what to do next, I ended up doing what turned up to be the exact right move towards the music style I really love: '70s-inspired heavy rock. The choice of team for this one came very natural. Bjarne [T Holm, drums] and Flemming [Muus, bass] I've known for decades and exactly what they are capable to do with the rhythm section, and a good vibe to go with it. And by introduction from Mighty Music's Michael H. Andersen, I found the golden voice of Chandler Mogel, a New Yorker with deep roots in the same music style as I love to do."

The musician continues: "This time I chose a selection of songs I wrote with good people during the last few years and a few obscure covers of songs which have made an impact on my taste in music since my journey as a heavy rock guitarist started many years ago now. This album is for the listeners who like their music hard and heavy with strong beautiful vocals and some no-nonsense playing to back it up. Enjoy!"
