The Mercy House

Country United Kingdom

Style Hard Rock/Heavy Metal

Profile Described by Kerrang! Radio’s Alex Baker as a band possessing, “killer riffs, monstrous vocals and more hooks than a slaughterhouse”, London’s powerhouse heavy-rock band THE MERCY HOUSE have spent the last year fighting to bring their music to the masses. Having won audiences over across the country with their unique brand of alternative heavy rock and one of the most energetic live shows around, the band is now poised to strike at the heart of the rock scene with an iron fist.

Since coming together in late 2009 they have had tracks featured on both Metal Hammer and Classic Rock cover CDs and received regular airplay on the likes of Kerrang! Radio and Total Rock. They won Kerrang! magazine’s Guitar Hero competition to have one of their tracks featured in the game, which led to a double- page spread feature on the band in Kerrang! magazine. Following this, Harmonix and the Rock Band franchise snapped at the chance to add The Mercy House to their roster of artists, which will see their track ‘Greed’ being released as part of the game’s additional content in 2012. All this came whilst gaining a fierce live reputation on the UK circuit, culminating in Metal Hammer selecting them to support Biohazard at the London Scala.

After battling against health issues that brought the band to the brink of destruction THE MERCY HOUSE return more determined than ever. The last few months have seen the band in the studio finishing their debut album, A Broken State of Bliss, which was mixed by Donald Clark (Guns N’ Roses, Korn, Muse) and mastered by Mandy Parnell (Depeche Mode, The Prodigy, Björk). The imminent arrival of this album, coupled with their triumphant festival appearance at last year’s Hammerfest (alongside the likes of Accept, Satyricon and Entombed) and sold out hometown shows sees them back and ready to commence an all out assault on your senses.
