What’s in a name? Everything. And Vancouver-based Without Mercy certainly stays true to its name. Ruthless and menacing, these Canadian metal titans have cultivated a fused death/thrash sound that shows off the band’s respect for, and dedication to, both genres. Their progressive hybrid sound coupled with a notorious reputation for throwing down an unyielding, intense live show, have proved that hardcore attitude can only equal hardcore results.
Following the 2007 release of their first EP, All Else Fails, Without Mercy released its self-titled, full-length debut. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Vancouver’s legendary Factory Studios (Devin Townsend, Mudvayne, Marilyn Manson), the release is the next stage of evolution for this up-and-coming four-piece.
Without Mercy has already shared the stage with Norwegian black metal legends Satyricon, Original Bay Area Thrashers DEATH ANGEL, Augury, Aborted, System Divide and Canadian favourites DIVINITY. Expect to hear a lot more from Without Mercy in the very near future as the band gets set to make some key appearances and take Canada by storm with a cross-country tour.
