Without much fanfare Sweden's death/thrashers MERCILESS released this self-titled gem in late 2002. 10 songs in 37 minutes, that's just as old school as it has to be. Inspired by German heroes like SODOM, DESTRUCTION, KREATOR or ASSASSIN plus parts of Swedish Death Metal! Nostalgia is also a big part of the vocals, as Shouter Rogga with his rough & croaking voice sometimes reminds of CARCASS. Who has had enough of all the Swedish melody Death Metal combos, or just had pleasure for a change mood to straight forward Thrash Metal, must not miss this record.
