History

Mulhouse's Merciless was formed in 1987 and soon issued a demo called Immortal Harmonies. 1989’s Visions From The Past followed. The group featured bassist Boris Mandavis at this stage. The band was heard on a single called Vomiting Nausea in 1990, which lead to the group’s full-length period. At this stage, in order to avoid confusion with the many other merciless folks out there, the Frenchmen change monickers to Mercyless. Drummer Gerald Guenzi and bassist Rade Radojcic are featured on the LP. Coloured Funeral was released by Century Media and was produced by Colin Richardson. The group moves on to a French label next and issues a third album in 1996. Pavement Music picks this album up three years later. The group’s last outing is Sure to Be Pure. The band had moved far away from death or even thrash metal and simplified matters. Tom Smith was on keyboards and the band had inserted effects and electronic elements. This was to be the band’s end. Rade Radojcic and Tom Schmitt died in 2015. Instead, the band issued a free digital song in 2016, called Altered Divination, in anticipation of the October 7th release date of the new full-length album, Pathetic Divinity.

Day Off Sin was the band’s electronic project.
