Mark your calendars! Century Media Records is proud to announce August 22, 2006 as the release date for Danish metal band MERCENARY’s new album *The Hours That Remain*. Following up the critically acclaimed and much-celebrated *11 Dreams* (2005), MERCENARY once again present an intense musical entity formed out of influences from death-prog masters Opeth to prog-power archetypes Nevermore to modern Swedish thrash bands like Soilwork.
Like its predecessor, *The Hours That Remain* was recorded and mixed by Jacob Hansen (Communic, Hatesphere) and is visually refined by brilliant artwork created by Travis Smith (Katatonia, Opeth).
The new album features guest vocals by Soilwork’s Björn “Speed” Strid and Heaven Shall Burn’s Marcus Bischoff.
*The Hours That Remain* will be available in two different formats: Standard jewel case CD and limited edition CD+DVD containing an exclusive bonus DVD filled with 120 minutes “Making of” documentary and live footage.
