Did you name the band after the old Dark Angel song or is it just coincidence?

It's funny that you ask that because it was a total coincidence. It was during school that Dan came up with a possible name for the band. The name he offered was Merciless Onslaught but I didn't like it too much, so I asked him "How about replacing the word 'Onslaught' with 'Death'?" He really liked the idea and from that point on, we called ourselves Merciless Death. I make it sound all easy but we had actually been struggling for a few weeks trying to come up with a name. Anyways, it was a coincidence that we named ourselves after the Dark Angel song because I don't think I found out about that band for another few weeks or a month. I remember calling Dan when I found out about Dark Angel and their song but he though they were a really great band and I know I didn't have any objections to naming ourselves after one of Dark Angel's songs, so we stuck with the name.

I wonder if he knew "Merciless Onslaught" as a Metal Church song. Coincidentally, the Polish band called Merciless Death has a song called "Merciless Onslaught"!

Anyway, the American Merciless Death is pretty pedestrian. I'm pretty sure all of their songs have the same chorus riff.

And the first two demos of this Polish force are gigantic. Furious and merciless THRASH. The third one was a bit slowed down but still very good.

I like the first Merciless Death (US) LP. It's generic but it's good. I don't expect a lot from thrash metal. I just want fast riffs and a lot of speed, and that's what they have. But when I saw them on KIT in April, it looked like they didn't have much fun on stage. Like someone else said, Fueled By Fire were a lot better. They slayed !!!!!!!!!!
