Mercury is the debut album by the Norwegian dark metal band Madder Mortem. The members involved on this release left shortly after, leaving only BP and Agnete M. Kirkevaag. The music is described as "dreamy" with folk elements. Following this release the band's music took an extreme turn towards heavier elements.
