Profile  Merzy was considered by some to be Denmark’s answer to Whitesnake. The band played a version of blues-rock not native to Odense or the Danish shores. The band was from the city of Odense, Denmark and formed in1987  and during its tenure appeared on Danish TV and appeared at the Midtfyns Festivallen and Roskilde Festivallen festivals.

The third album of Merzy contain 18 songs and published in 1995 on Iceberg Records  and co-released by BMG Records in Europe, and this gave them the opportunity to tour as support act for bands like Deep Purple and ZZ Top on the German part of their world tour. The songs are still very unusual, rich but not to the level of the previous two albums. These guys are very talented, but try to cover too many genres. At one point they sound like Whitesnake, then ZZ Top and Van Halen. The ballads Nowhere To Run and Standing In The Shadows are superb.
