MERCENARY‘s new album combines the strength of their latest approach with both a fresh sound and the grand melancholy and soaring clean vocals of past albums. The unusual mixture of elements from many genres within metal is in truth the band’s biggest asset: an organic diversity bound together by tight songwriting and the ability to stand up to any sort of audience and make them lifetime MERCENARY followers.
Now the band has released the first song coming off the new album, the title track „Through Our Darkest Days“: https://soundcloud.com/noiseartrecords/mercenary-through_our_darkest_days
„We are proud to let you all hear the title track of our new album, ‘Through Our Darkest Days’. We put a lot of effort, heart and soul into this beast and can’t wait to unleash it on the world! For us, the song is very iconic and it embodies the melancholic and grand sound that has always been a trademark for Mercenary.
Furthermore, we have a contest for those of you who will come out to see us live at the awesome BEASTIVAL (30.05. – 01.06.) next week! 5 fans will get the chance of attending an exclusive press listening event and will be able to hear the whole album as some of the first people in the world!
