THE MERCURY ARC:
Heavy, all-out and riddled with multi-layered melodies!
The distinctive metalcore mix of THE MERCURY ARC definitely thumbs the eardrums of demanding fans of relentless music.
THE MERCURY ARC stands for impulsive tension, reactive melodies and aggressive audio-impact. Mercury is known for it's toxicity and for it's liquid state of aggregation which is unique among metal. So is the dynamic music of the band, named after the physical mercury phenomenon, which shifts the listener into a toxic flush. The band's name has been chosen consciously to express how the band's sound unifies metallic heaviness, liquid liveliness and melodic ease.
Since 2006 it's the stated aim of the band to establish a musical massif of various styles of Metal and Hardcore. These six blooded musicians: Dennis Diehl, Benny Richter, Thomas Helten, Dominic Paraskevopoulos, Andy Posdziech and Andy Latzko from the Ruhr-Area, Germany have just recorded their debut album "Paint The Sun Black", which will be released on 27th of November 2009. The upcoming record embodies the fast-paced development of THE MERCURY ARC. With the new record in stores and their new band name (formerly Butterfly Coma) along with their new guitar player these musicians will push the envelope in 2009.
The sound of THE MERCURY ARC stands out with it’s cutting aggressive guitar riffs, paired with catchy melodies which are borne by several voice vocals and spherical keyboards. The driving drum rhythms and grooving bass lines along with the brute shouting of the singer form the backbone of the songs. The blend gets flavored with cutting-edge scratches and samples.
