Post Shermann or Denner?
The Smith/Murray or King/Hanneman polls have been done a million times. I don't recall a Mercyful Fate guitar head to head. I've always liked Denner's solos, but Shermann seems to be the genius behind the riffs. Which one is your favorite?

One of my favorite duos, but I suck at differentiating between guys like this and Murray/Smith, Tipton/Downing :shred: :(

Hank by a mile. Denner is great, but his solos tend to be too samey with the bends he does all the time. Sherman is more creative.

Did Hank Shermann playing the closing solo to Black Horsemen? Yeah, didn't think so.

I've been on a MF kick lately and I remenbered a thread a while back about killer riffs only played as rhythm for guitar solos in a song. This duo wins that competition for sure. There are so many killer riffs behind the solos! :shred:

Was that Denner? If so, I vote Denner.

Denner, because he kept writing sick riffs for the King after MF broke up the first time.

That's the only real point I can make- hard to vote against either of them as players.

Those 2 Force of Evil albums are pretty good too. They've certainly aged well as I don't remember liking them 10 years ago. Now in the age of all these throwback occult metal bands like Portrait, In Solitude, Attic AND not having King Diamond around - it's refreshing to hear what future Mercyful Fate songs might have been.

Went with Shermann for his riffs, although I like Denners leads a little better, to me, they ebb and flow very nicely.

Denner, but only because he was wearing penny loafers w/o socks at the 2003 BWBK Fest.

MERCYFUL FATE guitarists Michael Denner and Hank Shermann have joined forces in a new project called DENNER/SHERMANN. Hank explains in a statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET: "We recently recorded the video for 'Dont Break The Oath' 30-year anniversary, and got so inspired that we transformed the idea to create DENNER/SHERMANN.

"Besides working with our own respective bands, SHERMANN TANK and DENNERS TRICKBAG, we now have the opportunity to extend the collaboration we started with MERCYFUL FATE in the early '80s."

Adds Michael: "Yeah, we're super excited to play together again and get the twin guitars into action once more."

The 30th-anniversary video for MERCYFUL FATE's "Dont Break The Oath" album will be released soon.

Expect other exciting events to be announced later this year.
