Bravewords Premiere WITHOUT MERCY Lyric Video ‘In Waves’ ft. Mark Hunter of Chimaira

Vancouver, BC’s WITHOUT MERCY released their latest EP ‘Mouichido‘ during May of last year. The EP was a rebirth for the band as it was a re-release of re-recorded material from their 2014 EP ‘Reborn‘. ‘Mouichido’ is the Japanese word for “Repeat” or “to do one more time” and is perfectly titled for the EP to signify its re-release of previously recorded versions that now feature new vocalist Alex Friis and bass tracks recorded by Tristan Martin plus live performance being done by Ryan Loewen. Newly added to the EP was also a guest appearance by vocalist Mark Hunter of Chimaira on the track ‘In Waves‘, which the band is releasing a new lyric video for and have teamed up with to exclusively premiere.

Without Mercy guitarist DJ Temple had this to say:

“Working with Mark Hunter and seeing what he could do with one of our tracks was a pretty unreal experience!”

Tenacity, work ethic and originality. There’s no excuses anymore.

Vancouver-based Without Mercy certainly stays true to its name. Ruthless and menacing, these Canadian metal titans have cultivated and redefined the phrase, “Fuck Pussy Metal”.

Founded in 2004, Without Mercy has gone from strength to strength over the years. They released their first EP “All Else Fails” in 2007 completely independently and used its humble beginnings to start the catapulting of performances, internet presence and radio play. In 2009, Without Mercy went on to record their self-titled full length album using the same team that worked on records by Devin Townsend, Mudvayne, and Marilyn Manson. Without Mercy rode the attention wave of their self-titled debut, using the escalation to begin a relentless performance schedule that would lead them far from their hometown and include over 200 live performances. No stranger to tenacity, in only a few short years Without Mercy have achieved; being the only indie metal band in Western Canada to have two tracks available on Rock Band 3, being featured in Tattoo Savage Magazine, and pioneering the phrases, ‘You Smell Like A Bitch’ and ‘Fuck Pussy Metal’ – which have now become synonymous with the band.

In 2014, Without Mercy unleashed third studio release, “Reborn”. Another massive evolution for the band, Without Mercy sought to bring back the organic metal sound and combine it with a high production standard. Fast forward to 2016, some line up changes with a new vocalist and bassist, the band shared with fans re-recorded material from ‘Reborn’ on their latest EP ‘Mouichido‘ that even featured Chimaira vocalist Mark Hunter on their track ‘In Waves‘. The EP was unleashed on May 27th, 2016 and was supported with a steady rotation of touring and appearances across Canada and the USA. All of course, independently.

TRILATERAL is a multidimensional progressive metal band with influences as diverse as their music.
