Formed in 2011, Asbury Music Award-nominees LORDS OF MERCY hark back to the early days of thrash metal, hailing from the hub of the East Coast heavy music scene. In addition, LORDS OF MERCY are connected to the notable New Jersey musical grassroots organization Old Bridge Metal Militia, which paved the way for some of today’s top heavy metal acts such as Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Anvil, and more.
Lead guitarist Danny Anniello states, “LORDS OF MERCY are very excited to be doing more shows with Anvil. They are great guys and a great band that always goes full on and gives it all they’ve got. We are looking forward to playing in front of new audiences and kicking some new life into each stage that we rock. Like Anvil, Lords will be going full-on, so expect nothing less!”
Prevailing with a purpose to end the monotony of current trends and bring back the originality that put New Jersey on the heavy metal map, LORDS OF MERCY lead the fall touring season with a brief run of upcoming tour dates with Anvil.
