North Carolina Powerviolence


MERC is a two-piece powerviolence band from Charlotte, NC and consists of Jacob Sparks on bass/vocals and Crhis Raines on drums. Chris and Jacob formed MERC when their previous band, Lifed, ended with the unexpected death of their guitarist and best friend Anthony Pennington. MERC's only goal is to make music with as little bullshit as possible and to uphold the legacy of Anthony Pennington with as much rage as they can conjure through their instruments.
