Danish heavy metal legends MERCYFUL FATE were honored with the "Pioneer Prize" (Pionerprisen) at this year's Steppeulven, an annual award ceremony established by the Foreningen Af Danske Musikkritikere (Association Of Danish Music Critics), on January 28 at Bremen Teater in Copenhagen, Denmark. Accepting the award at the event were original MERCYFUL FATE members Hank Shermann, Michael Denner, Kim Ruzz and Timi Hansen, along with the band's longtime manager Ole Bang.

Video footage of the award presentation and acceptance speeches can be seen below.

MERCYFUL FATE's last studio album, "9", was released in 1999.

MERCYFUL FATE will be remembered for its unquestionable mark on the history of metal with its innovative sound, complex arrangements, memorable melody, and its influence on bands that later took the genre to new heights.


Video is in Danish, which i do not understand, but i am sure it's cool.  \m/

So cool, loved the music montage in the middle. Wish I could have been lucky enough to have been there. Too bad King wasn't there, maybe a spark would have been lit to do another Mercyful Fate album.  \m/

Congratulations on the award MercyfulFate  certainly deserves many awards and recognition as being one of the hardest working  and perhaps one of the most influential bands from the pioneering era of metal as we know it today.   I do tend to dream fondly of a new album myself perhaps in the future.

Stay Heavy  \m/
