Taken Beyond


High Roller Records
Distribution: Soulfood


MERCILESS DEATH hail from Canyon County, California, and when it comes to present-day Thrash metal played like back in the day, they are “the real deal” (blabbermouth.com) and “the cream of today's 'retro thrash' crop (metalinjection.net). But cross out the “retro” and keep the “real”, as MERCILESS DEATH are everything but your usual retro-old school-wannabe. Their first two albums scored enthusiastic reviews from both sides of the Atlantic, and now High Roller Records are more than pleased to present fans of real old school metal with their third full-length album, “Taken Beyond”.

MERCILESS DEATH are all about the original extreme wave of metal, Possessed, Death, early Slayer, Morbid Angel, Obituary, you name it; But MERCILESS DEATH are not just about looking back and paying tribute to old heroes. Guitarist Dan is quite clear about what makes MERCILESS DEATH stand out from the masses: “You know why we sound different or stand out from a lot of the new bands doing similar metal? Because we have been at this for a long time before starting a band. We get older fans that say 'You guys really sound like you are from back then without ripping anybody off!'”

First brought out as a self-release, 'Taken Beyond' is now out on vinyl - an offering of early extreme metal that's even darker, heavier and more unique than its predecessors - It's Thrash, but you'll know immediately it's MERCILESS DEATH. Dan “This album is our slab of true extreme metal in the purest form. No nonsense, if you don't like it, fuck off!”
