MERCENARY Streaming New Album In Its Entirety

Wednesday, 24th July 2013

Kings of Danish metal MERCENARY are streaming their new release, Through Our Darkest Days in full ahead of its July 26 release date via Noise Art Records (July 30 via Prosthetic Records in North America)  and may be streamed below via Soundcloud.

The album was recorded at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark with longtime producer Jacob Hansen (RAUNCHY, VOLBEAT, NIGHTRAGE, HATESPHERE, PYRAMAZE). The cover art was created by Mircea Eftemie (guitarist of MNEMIC), who has previously worked with SOILWORK, ILLDISPOSED and others.

According to the band, the album’s title is meant very positively and thematizes both the journey through existential darkness and the ability to break through it, while the lyrics involve making the most of life and not getting caught up in negativity. The sound combines the group’s latest material with some of the more traditional melancholic elements seen featured on previous albums.
