Mercenary Complete New Album

Danish progressive metallers MERCENARY, have wrapped up the recordings for their highly anticipated successor to 2006’s The Hours That Remain (which was subsequently awarded the Danish Metal award in the category Album Of The Year). Guitarist Jakob Molberg states:

"So, the new Mercenary album has finally been completed, mixed and mastered! It was a really laborious birth after several intense months of constant writing and rehearsing while playing sweaty gigs nearly every weekend in between (Note to self: Let's never do that again.). As we went straight into the studio with our masterly producer Jacob Hansen right after the last gig, we couldn't help but to bring along a lot of the immediacy and groove that we love when playing live. The result is in many ways our most spontaneous album ever, but I also believe it's our strongest yet - it's very melodic, catchy, dark and complex (just like any decent metalhead would - or should - want his metal to be.). With bass player / shouter Rene Pedersen recording his first album with us, this album marks the return of some really aggressive vocals - mixed of course with Mikkel's soaring clean singing. It's an album that's straight to the point I think, and I can't help but feel we're at the top of our game here. I never had a stronger belief in the potential of this band before.

The album title will be Architect Of Lies and it will be released in late March. Several killer tours and some great festivals are in the works. The year of 2008 will belong to Mercenary!"
