Mercenary Wrapping Up Recording Of New Album

Mercenary are currently wrapping up recordings of their as yet untitled 2006 album. Vocalist Mikkel Sandagar commented, “During the past four months, we have been writing the follow-up to 11 Dreams. We put together an amazing and diverse banquet, and so far it sounds better than we had ever expected. We were very well prepared for the studio this time, and it paid off. Mike (Park drums) laid down the drum tracks (with a broken leg 4 weeks in the mending) and then we recorded the rhythm guitars. I recorded all the vocal parts (for those who don’t already know founding member ‘Kral’ Andersen [vocals and bass] left the band prior these recordings) in 11 days, during which the keyboards were recorded. So all in all the recording process has gone very smoothly, and next week guitar solos and additional keyboards/samples will be completed. The album will be mixed in early May at Jacob Hansen studios and will be ready for release later this year. We are hoping that the album will be released in the States just in time for the band’s second appearance at the highly-prestigious ProgPower USA. We will go the extra mile to get the master tapes done in time so that the U.S. release will be timed with the European release. Anyone interested can see additional pictures from the Hansen studios at his website.”
