Fate is a Danish arena rock band originally formed in 1984. They released four albums between 1984 and 1990, before disbanding in 1993. However, after a one-off reunion at a German music festival in 2004, Fate was reformed and released a new album, V, in 2006. In 2010 Fate released Best of Fate 25 Years on EMI and, in November 2011, the album Ghosts from the Past was released on AOR Heaven in EU and Rubicon in Japan.


The band Fate formed when former Mercyful Fate guitarist Hank Shermann (René Krolmark), Maxim Reality singer Jeff "Lox" Limbo (Jens Meinert), bass / keyboard player Pete Steiner (Peter Steincke) and drummer Bob Lance (Bjarne Holm),[1] met with producer Simon Hanhart. The band recorded Cruisin' for a Bruisin' in 1988,[1] which featured the single "Lovers" (released as a single plus videoclip in 1988) and a new version of "Love on the Rox" from the band's debut.
