"…a death-thrash unit of clearly superior musicianship. More than capably fronted by the ferocious vocal howls of Alxs Ness, this is a band that understands the importance of fusing ability with energy and charisma. Dismissing this band as a “chick singer gimmick” would be unwise- to think of them as Canada’s Arch Enemy wouldn’t be far off the mark though." – Abort Mag
"Without Mercy can be best characterized as the saviours of metal souls in Vancouver." – Abort Mag
"Without Mercy have crafted a classic thrash album here…There is a unique style to each track, whether from vocalist Alxs Ness’s growls, bassist Dallas Lacy’s lines; which by the way are more interesting than the typical lines on many a thrash record, guitarist DJ Temples riffs, or drummer Matt Helie’s work…stand out tracks here, Chasm, Death Remains, and Succumb. " Thrash Magazine
"the band rip through eight tracks of sheer aggressive bliss, and it is a joy to behold….a young band grabbing a once-tired sound by the horns and making it their own with the passion and gusto that has kept the titans of the respective genres in business for so long…one of Canada’s most promising young acts." – MetalEater.com
"I barely know where to begin discussing the sound of Without Mercy, probably because I have never run across a woman who can emulate the growls of Thorr’s Hammer vocalist Runhild one moment, and the thick screams of Alexis Brown of Straight Line Stitch the next." – FemmeMetal.net

BIO: What’s in a name? Everything. And Vancouver-based, female-fronted Without Mercy certainly stays true to its name. Ruthless and menacing, these Canadian metal titans have cultivated a fused death/thrash sound that shows off the band’s respect for, and dedication to, both genres. Their progressive hybrid sound coupled with a notorious reputation for throwing down an unyielding, intense live show, have proved that hardcore attitude can only equal hardcore results.
Following the 2007 release of their first EP, All Else Fails, Without Mercy has recently released its self-titled, full-length debut. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Vancouver’s legendary Factory Studios (Devin Townsend, Mudvayne, Marilyn Manson), the release is the next stage of evolution for this up-and-coming four-piece.
“As the culmination of over a year of writing, preparing and planning, we feel that this album represents Without Mercy in its truest form,” says guitarist DJ Temple. “This is the first time we’ve really been able to articulate musically and lyrically the ideas we’ve been developing since the band’s inception,” adds vocalist Alxs Ness.
Without Mercy has already shared the stage with Norwegian black metal legends Satyricon, Taiwan’s Chthonic and Canadian favourites and Nuclear Blast recording artists, DIVINITY. Expect to hear a lot more from Without Mercy in the very near future as the band gets set to make some key appearances and take Canada by storm with a cross-country tour.
