Without Mercy are a band from Vancouver B.C, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of technical death metal, groove metal and metalcore and this is a review of their self released 2016 ep "Mouchido" which is actually a re-recording of their 2014 ep with their new singer.
A very heavy and brutal sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls and screams before adding in elements of metalcore and the vocals also bring in the more aggressive side of groove metal at times and when the music speeds up a good amount of blast beats can be heard.
Melodies can also be heard quite a but throughout the recording and the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the mid tempo sections also bring in a great amount of metalcore style breakdowns while later songs also bring in a more technical side and the whole ep also sticks to a heavy sound from beginning to ending of the recording and the last track also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts.
Without Mercy retain the same style of the original version while the vocals are a little bit more different and an improvement from the original recording, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Without mercy and if you are a fan of groove, death metal and metalcore, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In Waves" and "Morphine". 8 out of 10.
