It's not really easy task to make such an enjoyable album when it is just your sophomore effort, but Denmark's MERCENARY did this in 2002 with "Everblack". Whereas previously MERCENARY were a pretty decent death/thrash band, the band truly developed into something unique with this album. That is due to the introduction of the Sandager brothers Mikkel and Morten. Mikkel Sandager shows his skills with some of the best clean vocals you can hear these days, and Morten Sandager adds in some fantastic keyboard parts, helping to lend to the already dark atmosphere. Musically, on this album the band really succeeds in being heavy and melodicsimply very catchy!
