Have Mercy  

Have Mercy was a promising technical thrash band from the Baltimore area, whose style featured complex riffing and high-pitched but well-executed vocals. After a couple of demos and an appearance on Metal Massacre 7 they signed to Combat Records as part of their Boot Camp Series (which basically consisted of releasing vinyl EPs with no cover artwork), which resulted in the Armageddon Descends EP. Several lineup changes ensued, and two later demos were recorded, but they failed to land a recordiing contract and so they disbanded in 1988. Rob Michael and John Grden (one of the post-EP members) appeared in Fear Of God, while Tom Maxwell was later seen in Nothingface.
