Mercenary Release “Welcome The Sickness” Music Video

According to Blabbermouth, the Danish metal act, Mercenary, have released a music video for their song, “Welcome The Sickness.” This song is from the band’s album Through Our Darkest Days, which was released in 2013.

The band said the following about the video:

“We’re immensely proud to be able to present our new video for ‘Welcome The Sickness’. It’s been a great and fun experience making this possible through a crowdfunding campaign and interacting with the fans in a whole new way. We are very grateful for the support, as we would never have been able to finance a visit in Denmark’s biggest greenscreen studio with professional lights and makeup followed by two months of post production on our own. Moreover, we are really really happy with the striking, atmospheric, and visually dramatic way in which director Mircea Eftemie made our musical universe come to life. Without an incredible amount of hard work on his behalf, this video wouldn’t have been possible either, so please send a lot of kudos his way.”
