Founded in 2001, by Clinton Appelhanz and James King, UNMERCIFUL released its debut “Unmercifully Beaten," in 2006. With intensive tour runs from 2006 through 2009 with the likes of CANNIBAL CORPSE, DYING FETUS, NECROPHAGIST, CRYPTOPSY and many more. With a few lineup changes, the band took a hiatus from 2009 to 2012. The band then reformed and started writing their second album. This time with Jeremy Turner on bass guitar and Kris Bolton on vocals. The band recruited John Longstreth (ORIGIN, HATE ETERNAL, GORGUTS, etc.) to record the drums for “Ravenous Impulse,” that was released in 2016. This album was also to be their last with Unique Leader Records. The band self-booked tours and played US festivals in support of “Ravenous Impulse. UNMERCIFUL signed to Willowtip Records in 2019 and released “Wrath Encompassed” in 2020. The band toured in support of the album with NARCOTIC WASTELAND in fall of 2021, and a tour with DECREPIT BIRTH, PATHOLOGY and STABBING in the summer of 2022.
UNMERCIFUL is now writing material for their fourth album. Expect a more violent, relentless barrage of madness and ferocity!
