WITH NEW ALBUM “IN AMBER” FROM HIS NEW BAND DENNER'S INFERNO.
Although Michael Denner is not well-known in the mainstream music scene, the 60-
year-old guitarist is a very well-known name in the international rock/metal scene, as
a former guitarist in respectively Mercyful Fate and King Diamond - the two most
influential Danish rock/metal bands internationally ever. Michael 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). Mercyful Fate was also awarded
the “pioneer award” at the Danish critics award “Steppeulven” in 2017.
The first half-known band Denner joined was the Danish punk band Brats, which he
joined in 1979. But both before Mercyful Fate returned in 1993, and Denner left the
band again in 1996, he has also been very active with other musical projects,
however. Force Of Evil, Zoser Mez, Denner/Shermann and Denner's Trickbag to
name just a few.
