Mercyful Fate guitar legends Denner / Shermann have released a new video for the track “Son Of Satan”, taken from their upcoming album “Masters Of Evil”, out June 24th via Metal Blade Records.
The video was filmed, directed and edited by Owe Lingvall, animated by Konstantin Smirnov, and shot at Studio 1646 in Umea, Sweden. Based loosely on the movie The Omen, the song and video deliver an ominous dose of heavy metal music and imagery.

Michael Denner commented:
We chose this song to be the first video because musically, it is a song that really captures the entire essence of what this band is becoming. The lyrics are also very vivid, and it fills your imagination with dark, sinister images and visions that Swedish director Owe captured perfectly.
Sean Peck added:
Shooting this video was a great time, and I felt that all of us being together there, bonding as a band during the filming process, was important and something I will always remember.
“Masters Of Evil” contains 8 new Denner / Shermann tracks that continue right where the EP “Satan’s Tomb” (2015), left off. Building upon the musical foundation of “Satan’s Tomb”, these songs cover the entire gamut of heavy metal nuances and take the listener down a mysterious path where tales of dark, supernatural fantasies are told, transporting you to places that can only be found in the most vivid, blood curdling nightmares. Fully loaded to satisfy the old fans with just what they would expect, “Masters Of Evil” is also injected with menacing, sinister, new surprises that could only come from the sonic DNA of Michael Denner and Hank Shermann.
The album cover for “Masters Of Evil” was painted by Swedish artist Thomas Holm, who also created the artwork for “Satan’s Tomb” – and who is very well known amongst fans for his standout pieces over the past three decades! The mixing was once again handled by Arnold Lindberg at Sound Industry Studio in Gothenburg, Sweden – who also engineered Satan’s Tomb. Mastering was done once again by Maor Appelbaum in Los Angeles, California. The vintage sound on the new record harkens one back to the days of 2 inch tape machines, long nights in dark studios, and huge consoles glowing under dim incandescent light. Once the guitars hit your ears, the unmistakable trademark guitar sound of Michael Denner and Hank Shermann is instantly recognized. Prepare yourself for a heavy metal thrill ride!
