Mercenary: Through Our Darkest Days

Danish melodic death metallists MERCENARY have announced a European headlining tour in support of their upcoming release, “Through Our Darkest Days.” The tour will feature support from Omnium Gatherum; full dates are listed below.

“Through Our Darkest Days,” the group’s seventh studio album, is scheduled for North American release on July 30 via Prosthetic Records. Recorded with longtime collaborator and friend Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Heaven Shall Burn) at Hansen Studios in Denmark, the album will include what the band describes as “a combination of our latest material with a lot of the more traditional melodic and melancholic elements of previous Mercenary albums.”

The album cover art, featured above, was completed by Mnemic guitarist Mircea Efrfemie (Soilwork, Illdisposed) and “symbolizes a darkness we have gone through as a band, which we feel we have finally been able to put behind us. The title of the album is meant very positively and thematizes both the journey through existential darkness as a general theme and the ability to break through it. The lyrical universe is very much about making the most of life and not getting caught up in negativity.”
