Force of Evil (band)

Force of Evil (band)

Force Of Evil is a 5-piece Heavy Metal band formed by the legendary twin guitarists of Mercyful Fate, Michael Denner and Hank Shermann. They joined forces with Hal Patino, Bjarne T. Holm and Martin Steene, all known for their performance with King Diamond, Mercyful Fate and Ironfire.

The band's style of music is classic power metal, which encompasses raw riffing, piercing guitar solos, climax, and emotion, all topped with sinister and screaming vocals that are delivered explosively on stage.


Michael Denner and Hank Shermann are the original twin guitars from these classic Mercyful Fate recordings:
Nuns Have No Fun (album), Melissa, Don't Break The Oath, In the Shadows, Time and Into the Unknown.

Hal Patino has been recording with King Diamond band on Them, Conspiracy, The Eye, and The Puppet Master (album). They toured heavily as well. Bjarne T. Holm joined Mercyful Fate in 1995 and has been recording with the band since then. They went on several US, South American and European Tours. Martin Steene is the main man in the band Iron Fire. They have released two albums: "Thunderstorm" and "On the Edge", and have a big following in Europe.

Force Of Evil was formed in September 2002. They soon started recording their first album on March 24th, 2003 and the CD was released on June 13th, 2003. The same day the band played their first worldwide performance in Cleveland, Ohio. A DVD was released in 2004, recorded in concert in Stockholm, Sweden in November of the previous year. Their second album, 'Black Empire' was released in the spring of 2005.
