Through the last decade, MERCENARY have been one of the most active and successful proponents of Denmark’s rising metal scene. Over the course of their previous five studio albums, which earned the band increasing critical acclaim for their distinctive blend of aggression and huge soaring melodies, the band earned a still wider international audience and dedicated fan base. MERCENARY have toured actively as support for top acts such as Megadeth, Arch Enemy, Nevermore, King Diamond, Death Angel and many more. They have also appeared on most major metal festivals, such as Wacken (twice), Tuska, Metal Camp, Earthshaker, Inferno, Graspop, Dynamo, Summer Nights, Progpower Europe, and Progpower US (twice) and many more.

Behind the scenes, however, deep creative and personal differences increased through the years, and they culminated when the drummer, the keyboard player and one of two singers left the band in late 2009. Joined by master drummer Morten L?we, the band now counts the song writing team of original member Jakob M?lbjerg (guitar) and master shredder Martin Buus (lead guitar), as well as the versatile singer/bassist Ren? Pedersen.


Rising from the ashes of the old lineup, the Mercenary of 2011 evolves and reshapes the band’s trademark sound of combined clean and aggressive vocals with a new edge, displaying a catchy and fresh sound, as well as an newfound unity, ambition and musical focus within their ranks.
