"Everblack" is an album for those who love Gardenian's "Sindustries"... Not that Mercenary are no more than a copy of their Swedish "senior brothers" - the Danish six-piece has their own sound and their approach to songwriting is different, but the atmosphere, the feelings and the components of their music are very close to the third album of Gardenian. See yourself: melodic death of Swedish school, brutalized with some angry metal and enlightened with some influences from progressive metal. Clean vocals are there, and there's plenty of them. The high-pitched voice is not bad, at least I personally like it, but to many it may be bit annoying. Despite that, I have to admit that Mikkel has good range and his abilities are better than average. On the other hand I'm not very fond of bassist Kral's growling - it's low, brutal and sometimes sounds too "mumbling". For that kind of music I prefer "Swedish" semi-screaming. But anyway, "Everblack" is still great album. One of the best melodic death metal releases of 2002.
