…for the first time since 2008 with a new album, Metamorphosis. And it's about damn time! Following up their last record, Architect of Lies, 2011's Metamorphosis will feature nine vicious tracks of Mercenary's signature melodic death/power metal hybrid.
As the cover art and album title suggest, Mercenary have gone through their fair share of changes-- replacing their singer in 2009 (bassist/vocalist Rene Pedersen stepped in the fulfill the duty), drummer, and keyboardist (replaced for this album by guest musician Kim Olesen of Anubis Gate).
Below you can peep a trailer for the new album, featuring the cover art and band's re-envisioned logo:
