Welcome to another great Wednesday of Extreme of the Extreme. This week, extreme metal band Without Mercy provides a video for their new track "Uprooted". "Uprooted" comes from Without Mercy's upcoming album Seismic, which comes out on November 20th.
Without Mercy are just that, without mercy. If their previous singles were nothing to go by, then "Uprooted" certainly proves this without fail. Right from the start, Without Mercy set the bar high for their extremity, aiming for something far more chaotic. The opening is a mix between the pure grind-death akin to that of Cattle Decapitation, and the math metal sound of Protest the Hero.
The core tone of the song maintains the death-grind styling in Alex Friis' vocals. The instrumentals though, are much more on par with that of Periphery and Meshuggah. The djent style works well with the intensity of the vocals, where some bands tend to stack rather monotonous vocals on top of the same style of instrumentals.
The new single is available to listen to below, as per. If you like what you hear, pre-order the album, it launches November 20th and will feature guest spots from Chris Broderick and Jeff Loomis.
