Formed back in the early 80's, Danish hard rock band FATE made themselves quite a name on the metal/rock scene with their 4 superb albums. In 2009 the band is stronger than ever! The hard rock legend known as FATE came to life in 1984 when guitarist Hank Sherman left Mercyful Fate. Hank hooked up with fellow Copenhagen musicians bassplayer Pete Steiner (a.k.a. Peter Steincke) and drummer Bob Lance (a.k.a. Bjarne Holm). Together they formed Fate with singer and entertainer Jeff "Lox" Limbo. Originally heralded by the press and fans worldwide as the Danish version of Van Halen (first and foremost due to Limbo's stage appearance), the band rocketed into success with the self titled debut album becoming quite a classic on it's own among the hard rock / AOR / melodic metal fans. With the follow-up in 1986, "A Matter Of Attitude", Fate established their success, and gained even more fans. However, 1988 saw the first line-up change in the history of Fate, as Hank Sherman left the band, and the guys had to find a new guitarist to fill the vacant spot. It became The Mysterious Mr. Moth (a.k.a. Jacob Moth). Output number 3 was the "Cruisin' For A Bruisin'" album, which was less of a serious album, and more in the vein of the albums David Lee Roth were putting out at that time .. in other words, an album fitted perfectly at Limbo's voice and stage antics. The album did quite okay, especially thanks to the single & video "Lovers", but it was evident that the band needed to make some changes to get back to their classic hard rock roots. With "Scratch N Sniff" in 1990, the band had returned to the same ballsy sound as on the first 2 albums, but also ventured a step further to becoming a more mature and serious band. This was due to 2 major changes; Limbo was out of the band and new singer Per Henriksen (later changed his last name to Johansson) took the place as frontman with bravour. Per's voice was made for this kind of music, and his input on the sound of "Scratch N Sniff" was tremendous. Also, this album featured the huge talents of Swedish guitarist Mattias "IA" Eklundh, a young dude, who'd later shoot to stardom with his own band Freak Kitchen. Yes, the sound of Fate was intact, but also more daring and adventurous than ever before. After several tours in 1990/91, on their own, as well as with Danish collegues Pretty Maids, Fate and Mattias parted ways, as Mattias wanted to focuse on his solo-career and own material. The band then found a new guitarist in local talent Søren Hoff, and they did a couple of demo's and gigs with this line-up, before the band however officially closed down in 1993. Years went by, and Fate was still a name that reminded people of how great classic hard rock could actually be. In 2004 the guys got the offer to play the prestigious Deep Impact Festival in Germany, and of course this was too good an offer to turn down. So Peter, Per, Søren and the two temporary musicians; drummer Rasmus Duedahl and keyboardist Nicklas Burman, took the trip down there, and had really good response from fans and media - and this also lead to MTM Music wanting to license the "A Matter Of Attitude" and "Scratch N Sniff" albums from EMI, remaster them and release them with some additional bonus tracks. Now, ignited by the overwhelming response to the re-releases, Fate has decided to give it another shot, and with the line-up of Peter, Per, Søren and new drummer Mikael Kvist (from Swedish prog-metal band Elsesphere) Fate is back in action. In the winter of 2005/2006 the band finished recording their next album, "V", with producer Tommy Hansen (who did "Scratch N Sniff" back in 1990, as well as having produced bands like Helloween, Pretty Maids and many more), and promoted worldwide by Intromental Management. Signed to MTM Music for Europe/Australia/South America and Replica Records for France, Fate released "V" in April 2006 . In 2008 Jens Berglid on drums and Mikkel Henderson on keyboards, joined the band and the tracking of new demos begun! Per decided to leave the band in 2008 in the middel of the demo recordings and Dagfinn Joensen was found in 2011. The dansih guitar hero Torben Enevoldsen joined the band on guitar after Søren Hoff and Fate decided to go seperate ways. November 2011 the new album "Ghosts From The Past" will be released 16´th of November in Japan on Rubicon Records and on the 25´th of November in EU on AOR Heaven EU. Dansih legendary AOR band formed back in 1984. Six albums later and a whole lot of members going in and out they are back!
Easily among my Top 10 favorite Scandi-AOR / Melodic Rock acts off all time, one of you asked for FATE albums in its remastered releases. The self-titled "Fate" is the debut from these fabulous Danes, a terrific slice of mid-80s melodic stuff plenty of keys, killer guitar riffs and catchy choruses.The instant hook of 'Love On The Rox', the heavenly layered chorus of 'Fallen Angel', the jumpin' rocker 'Rip It Up', midtempo Scandi-diamond 'Victory', the anthemic keyboard driven 'Won't Stop', the soaring 'Summerlove', all are perfect examples of what '80s Scandinavian AOR is all about.The remaster of "Fate" is not the best in the world, but this issue can't hidden the fact that these songs are excellent. This is one of the first albums from the Scandinavian mid-Eighties wave that would take the world by storm the next year with Europe's The Final Countdown.To make it more complete, we have added 3 tracks as extra bonus, taken from the previously released version by Rip Tide Records, These were singles, obviously taken from vinyl here, but darn, what a great songs.This is where it all began. A must have in your classy AOR / Melodic Rock collection.
