The Danish veterans of dark melodic metal Mercenary are back with their first new song in seven years, out now on Spotify and other relevant digital portals. A music video featuring professional footage from Mercenary’s return to the stage in January will premiere this Friday the 17th at 21.00 CET on the band’s own YouTube channel.
Fans can join in for a chat session with the band using YouTube’s own chat function for the premiere. Comments the band:“We are extremely happy to be able to present the first new song from us in eons and hope that old fans and new listeners alike will take a deep dive into this little precursor of what’s to come.Little did we know when we prepared the music video earlier this year that the depiction of solitude and loneliness and humanity’s relation to our surrounding natural world would turn out to be a highly relevant visual thematization of the end times currently unfolding and the unprecedented human isolation of the last few weeks – and that the song would end up as perhaps the most topical of our releases ever, as the world continues to reshape itself around us in a manner perfectly suited for apocalyptic anthems such as this.”
The song is will be featured on Mercenary’s as yet untitled 8th album, to be recording in 2020.
