Fate

Rockdoc - 80s Rock wikipedia
High Class Melodic hard rock band with Copenhagen as base.
FATE was founded in 1985 by former MERCYFUL FATE guitarist Hank Sherman with former MAXIM vocalist Jeff Lox Limbo, bassist/keyboardist Pete Steiner and drummer Bob Lance. 3 weeks after they first met as FATE - they had a record contract! In 1986 they released their untitled debut guested by Michael Denner (ex KING DIAMOND/MERCYFUL FATE) and produced by long-time MERCYFUL FATE engineer Henrik Lund.
In 1987 "A Matter of Attitude" was released - it was guested by producer/guitarist Svein Dag Hauge and keyboarder Kjetil Bjerkestrand - he later showed up in TNT. Shermann left right after this release to join a heavy outfit called LAVINA.
FATE carried on with new guitarist Mysterious Mr. Moth and a permanent keyboard player Floyd Lafayette. This outfit recorded "Cruisin' for a bruisin'" with producer Simon Hanhart - but Limbo and Moth left FATE. Moth to make some studio work with Germans BLIND GUARDIAN before joining BLINK.
Steiner and Holm recruited vocalist Per Henriksen (ex CRYSTAL KNIGHT/ DORIAN GRAY/ EVIL/ LAVINA/PALLADION) and Swedish guitar ace Matthias Eklundh (ex FROZEN EYES).
In 1990 FATE returned in a revitalised version and released the dynamic and powerful "Scratch'n sniff" album produced by Tommy Hansen in the Jailhouse Studios. Eklundh's guitar work on that album was recorded through an old Ghetto Blaster with a broken loudspeaker, but it had a certain effect! Holm played with Zoser Mez before joining Shermann in a new MERCYFUL FATE edition and Eklundh formed FREAK KITCHEN in Sweden and worked with former SKAGARACK frontman Torben Schmidt .... and for a very short while FATE continued with a danish guitarist called Søren Hoff, but they only recorded a few demos in 1992. A little funny story is that during the recording of this demo in the Sweet Silence studios legendary producer Flemming Rasmussen was in the middle of producing German heavy band CHROMING ROSE - but was disturbed by the very dynamic Per Henriksen. Rasmussen ran upstairs and yelled "Who is screaming like this" and Per Henriksen ended up doing the background vocals on the record "Pressure" alongside Alex Nyborg Madsen from WITCH CROSS - ironically Eklundh made a guest appearence on CHROMING ROSE's album from 1991! Limbo is now active in Copenhagen bars with a duo called Major, featuring him and his brother, playing Beatles-like selfcomposed material. Steincke was a DJ in several Copenhagen night clubs and did some studio work on radio commercials, but is now out of the music business doing some internet and multimedia work.Per Henriksen changed his last name to Johansson and after a period in USA, recording with among others David Paich of TOTO he returned to Denmark, where he now has a new power pop project called UREAS together with his wife Heidi. Special guest stars on the album are Bjarne Holm on drums and a young Mr. Frederik Hansen on guitar - son of producer Tommy Hansen, who mixed the album as well.In 2003 Hank Sherman and Bjarne Holm has joined forces with vocalist Martin Steene from Iron Fire, Michael Denner and Hal Patino known from =Y=. The band Force of Evil plays 80's metal. The long time ago sold out debut album "A Matter Of Attitude" is now re-released and remastered on MTM CLASSIX and features two bonus tracks. The re-release is accompanied by a live show the first time after many years on the DEEP IMPACT Open Air festival in Munich in July and FATE will announce their comeback!
