Influential Danish metallers MERCYFUL FATE played their first concert in 23 years Thursday night (June 2) at the Expo Plaza in Hannover, Germany as the support act for VOLBEAT. The band's seven-song set included a brand new track, "The Jackal Of Salzburg", which is expected to appear on MERCYFUL FATE's upcoming studio album, tentatively due in 2023 via Metal Blade.

In introducing "The Jackal Of Salzburg", frontman King Diamond told the crowd: "We have a brand new song we'd like to test on you. It's not quite finished. We are lacking a verse and a little more. It's not recorded yet. But let's see if you like this. This is called 'The Jackal Of Salzburg'."

In a Twitch livestream from a couple of days ago from the MERCYFUL FATE rehearsals, which are taking place in Glostrup, Denmark, vocalist King Diamond revealed that he and his bandmates are planning to debut a brand new song at the upcoming shows. "We're trying," he said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). "We're still working on a song. I wrote the final lyrics the day of our departure [for rehearsals], I would say, and that's a couple of days ago. So the others have not heard me sing the song at all. We played a few riffs from it yesterday. I didn't sing to it at that time. But it's coming [along] here. The next couple of days we're gonna see where it leads us
