Hybrid extreme metallers Mercy Brown have unveiled a head-spinning new video over at No Clean Singing, for a track off their self-titled début album. The video was primarily performed on GoPros, as the band rock out to a punkier side of their extreme metal blend.
Praising the band’s diversity, NCS comments “Mercy Brown don’t have much interest in being slotted into any neat categories. For those like me who are discovering the band for the first time, don’t be fooled by their name. It might make you think you’re in for some retro soul or funk music, but you’ll make a better guess if you happen to know about the bizarre “Mercy Brown vampire incident“, in which a young woman’s supposedly undead corpse was exhumed in Exeter, Rhode Island, in 1892 in order to remove her heart and burn it.”

Spokane, WA, outfit Mercy Brown are a fascinating band. Blending a bewildering array of influences, from the cavernous doom of Inter Arma to a blackened death metal roar, their sound is honestly only succinctly summed up as ‘metal’. Forming in February 2010, they first made ears prick up with their self-titled EP in March 2012, which was quickly put in radio rotation and picked up the band some high-profile gigs; the band have played shows with Machine Head, Mushroomhead, 3 Inches of Blood, Castle, Hanzel und Gretyl, Lord Dying, Witch Mountain, and The Atlas Moth.
Their début self-titled album (to follow the self-titled EP) was released just recently, and has already received some strong praise from across both sides of the pond.
