After 3 consecutive demos released in the middle of 90's, MERCENARY from denmark finally launched their 1st album entitled "First Breath" in 1998.
The first breath of these 4 guys is a very good one, in 56 minutes unleashing some crushing melodic death metal with some thrash influences.
Their sound in 1998 was really raw & lacking the usual features of the later MERCENARY which featured more the keyboards & clean vocals.
The musicianship on "First Breath" is combination of deep vocals & strong guitar melodies implemented with killer riffs & straight, tight drums,
while the vocals here are very energetic and raspy.
