Mercenary's "The Endless Fall" Video Posted Online

Danish metal dynamite Mercenary presents you its brand-new video clip for the song "The Endless Fall," which has been taken from their 2008 album, "Architect Of Lies."

The band states: "When we entered 2009, we had the feeling that 2008 would be a hard year to top – we'd just returned from a really great tour with Arch Enemy in December (who needless to say rocked our proverbial socks off every night – one of the greatest live acts we've ever seen), we'd done the Danish Headbanger’s Ball tour with Raunchy, we’d played our biggest show ever on Wacken, and last but not least, we had the honour of serving time on stage as support for the almighty Megadeth on a handful of shows. Truly a great experience, and a lesson well learned for us – no matter how big you get or how many million albums you sell, there’s always time to show respect for bands a zillion times smaller than yours. No matter what anybody says or writes, we’ll always remember Dave Mustaine as a truly humble and helluva funny guy, who went out of his way to make us feel welcome and who made sure we were treated well by his crew on these few dates. We even got to share the stage with Megadeth, singing badly out-of-tune backing vocals for 'Peace Sells' on one of the shows, which was to say the least, surreal.

"Well, so, here we are in 2009 and what a way to start the year! We got nominated for a 'Danish Music Award' (a Grammy) for 'Architect Of Lies' in the category 'Hard Rock Album of the Year.' Needless to say, we're immensely proud of this in a country that's dead set on keeping metal out of the media and shove it as far into the underground as possible. So, this is at least a chance to roar our ugly mugs at the establishment!

"Furthermore, we have a brand new music video for the track 'The Endless Fall' ready for you all, which features live shots from Wacken 2008 combined with some very cool shots and killer special effects from Chilean director Carlos Toro. It’s a little gift directly from the band to the fans out there and we really hope you will enjoy the shit out of it!”

I liked it, I thought it was pretty good; however, something tells me the end could have been made better to absorb the impact of the end. And I'm not sure, but this is just a thought: I wonder how the video would look if more people were involved in the main setting.

Yeah they could have made it better, their videos don't usually capture intensity of the songs. Amazing band, they need to tour the US already
