THE MERCY CLINIC: First Audio Samples Posted Online

THE MERCY CLINIC, the new band featuring former DAMAGEPLAN singer Patrick Lachman, along with guitarists Brian Harrah (PROFESSIONAL MURDER MUSIC) and Josh Stinson (DRIST), bassist Steed Najera (TRIPLE SEVEN) and drummer Bevan Davies (DANZIG, JERRY CANTRELL), have uploaded two brand-new audio samples at heir official web site. Check out the songs "Let It Burn" (mp3) and "Can I Become Me" (mp3).

In a recent interview with MTV.com, Lachman stated about THE MERCY CLINIC's musical direction, "The material's very broad. It runs the gamut from heavy to acoustic, surreal to just wacked-out effects-laden stuff with no drums and different vocal approaches."

"It's important to us to dissolve the boundaries and classifications of music that have become so prevalent," Lachman is quoted as saying in the band's official biography. "If we want to write a ballad, we will. If we want to write an all-out, crushingly heavy tune, so be it. Why try to fit into a category? Trends come and go, but good songs will stand the test of time."
