Metal Mercy to release “The Unborn Child” in a limited vinyl edition

The release date of the of the album “The Unborn Child” by the Swedish heavy metal band Metal Mercy on double vinyl via Karthago Records is January 29th, 2021. The pre-order phase will start on January 15th, 202. The album will be released in a limited edition of 300 black copies and insert on vinyl.

In 1989 Metal Mercy from Jönköping (Sweden) produced the mini album “The Unborn Child”. Though it was released in the late 80’s it does not contain any influences of “modern” metallic styles. This typical 80’s heavy metal with good choruses and an expressive vocalist is now very much in demand from collectors because “The Unborn Child” was not only a rare but also an excellent gem of Scandinavian heavy metal. The prices for the few items to be found rose continually. Now that this record is being re-released on CD the original vinyl is very expensive if offered.

After “The Unborn Child” it was unfortunately only one release in 2002, though the band recorded some interesting demos.
