Denner’s Inferno Recruit Mats Levén (Ex-Candlemass) For Upcoming Shows

Denner’s Inferno, the band featuring Michael Denner (ex-Mercyful Fate), have recruited Mats Levén (ex-Candlemass) as a guest vocalist. The singer will join the band at Nordic Noise and a couple of other festivals.

Denner commented:

“It is with pride and great pleasure to be able to present Mats Levén as the singer when Denner’s Inferno plays on Nordic Noise on May 8 and a couple of more summer festivals. And then more plans together, I hope! I have followed Mats closely through my passion for doom metal and thus his work in Candlemass, Abstrakt Algebra etc. And feel that his style fits perfectly with what I want to express myself with the music I perform.”

Levén added:

“I am very much looking forward to playing a couple of festivals with Denner’s Inferno this summer — starting with Nordic Noise in Copenhagen, and then we will see what happens next.

I bought Mercyful Fate’s ‘Melissa’ and ‘Don’t Break The Oath’ albums as a young teenager and have loved them ever since. They mean a lot to me. And who knows? Maybe we will also play a couple of Mercyful Fate classics when we are on stage anyway.”

Michael Denner Says He Wasn’t Approached About Taking Part In The Upcoming Mercyful Fate Reunion

Michael Denner has officially commented on his absence from the upcoming Mercyful Fate reunion. He told Metalized the following [translated from Danish]:

“I was not asked to join, and was told only two days before it was public news. I think it’s a pity for the fans of the original MERCYFUL FATE. Especially since I’m in the shape of my life right now. But now it’s just a matter of putting it behind me, and look forward to the release of the upcoming DENNER’S INFERNO album ‘In Amber’.”
