Rene Pedersen of Mercenary checked in with The Age Of Metal



Danish metal band Mercenary has been around since 1991, and so far it has survived many line up changes and a few sound experiments that for bad or for good had shaped the identity and the legacy of the band. In 2013 they returned with a new album titled Through Our Darkest Days.

The album is a retrospection on the sound of Mercenary, as it considered more in touch with their early material from a modern perspective. Through Our Darkest Days presents itself as a strong and melodic album, with some death metal and thrash metal elements. The result of this new Mercenary album can be reflected on songs like A New DawnThrough Our Darkest Days, and Generation Hate.

The Age Of Metal had the chance to speak with Rene Pedersen (Vocals/Bass guitar) of Mercenary. We talked about Through Our Darkest Days, the band’s sound, lineup changes, and the possibility of a return to ProgPower USA or a North American tour.
