Canadian metallers are back, back, back
It’s been two years since Vancouver, BC’s WITHOUT MERCY last EP ‘Reborn’ savaged the lands of Canadian metal. After hitting the studio with a new vocalist Alex Friis and bass tracks recorded by Tristan Martin and live performance being done by Ryan Loewen, the band is ready to unleash its latest offering ‘Mouichido’, a re-release of re-recorded material from their 2014 EP ‘Reborn’. Newly added to EP is also a guest appearance by vocalist Mark Hunter of Chimaira on track ‘In Waves’. ‘Mouichido’ is set for release on May 27th, 2016 and is available for pre-order at the following link.
“‘Mouichido’ is the Japanese word for “Repeat” or “to do one more time”. We chose this as the title to signify the re-release of a previous version of this record. After the release ‘Reborn’, we faced an issue with our vocalist, which caused us to part ways with him. On the advice of our legal team, we recorded the album again with our current vocalist in an effort to terminate possible legal action.” says Band founder and guitarist DJ Temple. “In addition to that, I hold close ties with Japanese culture so I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce those lines into our music. Facing the incredible difficulty with the last record and the way the vocalist departed the band, the stress was compounded by the financial burden left with a record we couldn’t release. By venturing back to some of my martial art roots, I found the strength to maintain my tenacity and get the record back on track. The result, is “Mouichido”. Fans should receive this as the ultimate reason to never give up. Take the aggressive nature of the songs and allow the culture of the Japanese writing to envelop you in a way that will carry you through each track. Let this EP be the story that inspires you to push through something difficult and come out the other side a stronger and more experienced person.”
