Vocalist/Bassist Henrik “Kral” Andersen
Interview by Lord of The Wasteland
The Internet and print magazines have been abuzz over one album recently?Mercenary?s 11 DREAMS. The Danish band unleashed this sonic behemoth in Europe last summer but February 8th sees the release of 11 DREAMS in North America. Following the lead of almost universal critical approval from the Europeans, 11 DREAMS appears to be headed down the same path as the rave reviews and accolades continue to pour in (don?t miss the reviews of 11 DREAMS here at Metal Rules) setting the album up with a surefire place among writers? year-end lists.
On the morning of 11 DREAMS North American release date (Febraury 8th), I chatted with vocalist/bassist Henrik ?Kral? Andersen about the new album, how the band is handling all the critical praise, the new lineup, the ready-to-explode Danish metal scene and just where exactly he got the nickname ?Kral??
