Like many rock bands from Denmark, Mercenary needed to patiently wait out the first ’90s before drawing any record company attention from the Swedish and Norwegian behemoths raging merely to the north. Produced in 1991 by vocalist/bassist Kral (aka Hans Henrik Andersen), the music group works in comparative anonymity until 1998, if they finally arrived a deal for the debut record they aptly known as First Breath. This is followed 2 yrs later with the older Everblack, which discovered Kral, vocalist Mikkel Sandager, guitarists Nikolai Brinkmann and Signar Petersen, keyboardist Morten Sandager, and drummer Rasmus Jakobsen forging an audio derived from identical parts death steel, thrash, and power steel, and keeping melody and small song buildings at reduced. Yet another circular of member shake-ups would shortly stick to, but after breaking in the brand new guitar group of Jakob Moelbjerg (ex-Panzerchrist) and Martin Buus Pedersen, in addition to drummer Mike Recreation area, Mercenary joined pushes with leading unbiased Century Media because of their third record, 2004’s 11 Dreams. At this juncture, they also attained the support of manufacturer Jacob Hansen (Hatesphere, Raunchy, etc.) and cover musician Niklas Sundin (Arch Foe, etc.).
