MERCENARY Streaming New Album Title Track

Melodic death metallists MERCENARY unveiled the title track from their upcoming album, Through Our Darkest Days. You can stream the entire song via Soundcloud.

The band commented,

“We are proud to let you all hear the title track of our new album. 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.”

Through Our Darkest Days — the group’s seventh studio album — is scheduled for release in North America on July 30 via Prosthetic. It was recorded with longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Heaven Shall Burn) at Hansen Studios in Denmark and features cover art by Mircea Eftemie (Soilwork, Mnemic).

The band also announced a series of tour dates in its native country, which will follow their European headlining tour.

Says the band,

“We are psyched to announce that we will be tearing up Denmark in September and October with our good friends Essence! We will make sure that no heads are left unshaken! We look forward to share the stage with Essence once again and delivering ONE HELL of a show every night! So get your asses down to the shows and bring the action!”

Over the course of its career, MERCENARY earned extensive acclaim for its juxtaposition of melody and melancholy, as well as its unique musical mixture of the progressive, power, death and thrash metal subgenres. The group has twice performed at the annual ProgPower USA festival and toured their native continent extensively with Megadeth, Arch Enemy, Nevermore, King Diamond, Death Angel and Symphony X, in addition to playing such prominent festivals as Wacken, Graspop and Dynamo.
