Without Mercy

Abbotsford, British Columbia
Canada
Bio:
What’s in a name? Everything. And Vancouver-based Without Mercy certainly stays true to its name. Ruthless and menacing, these Canadian metal titans have cultivated a fusion of death and thrash, a sound that shows off the band’s respect for, and dedication to both genres.
 

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 the summer of 2012 Without Mercy began pre-production on their long awaited third studio release, "Reborn". Another massive evolution for the band, Without Mercy has sought to bring back the organic metal sound and combine it with a high production standard. “Reborn” has proven to be the highest production, the most intense writing and is the most honest representation of Without Mercy to date. "Reborn" was released in January of 2013 and was immediately followed by an extensive touring schedule and festival rotation.

Fast forward to 2016, and the band has just released their new EP ‘Mouichido’ that even features Chimaira vocalist Mark Hunter on their track ‘In Waves’. The band is gearing for a cross country Canadian tour so keep an eye out for Without Mercy in a town near you!
