Danish death metallers MERCENARY have released the epic, crowd-sourced music video for "Welcome The Sickness", a track from their critically acclaimed 2013 release "Through Our Darkest Days". The clip was shot in just one day with director/producer Mircea Gabriel Eftemie (MNEMIC), who was also responsible for the album's mystic cover artwork.
Comments the band: "We're immensely proud to be able to present our new video for 'Welcome The Sickness'. It's been a great and fun experience making this possible through a crowdfunding campaign and interacting with the fans in a whole new way. We are very grateful for the support, as we would never have been able to finance a visit in Denmark's biggest greenscreen studio with professional lights and makeup followed by two months of post production on our own. Moreover, we are really really happy with the striking, atmospheric, and visually dramatic way in which director Mircea Eftemie made our musical universe come to life. Without an incredible amount of hard work on his behalf, this video wouldn't have been possible either, so please send a lot of kudos his way."
MERCENARY — which has long been one of the most active and successful proponents of Denmark's rising metal scene — has spent the past year on tour throughout Europe supporting "Through Our Darkest Days". The CD, which combines the band's traditional melodic and melancholic elements with a darker, heavier mindset, was recorded and mixed with Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, HEAVEN SHALL BURN) at Hansen Studios in Denmark and features nine tracks that take listeners on a journey through existential darkness while inspiring them to break through it.
