This was the second single released from Chimaira's Crown Of Phantoms
album. It was made available on June 18, 2013. Asked by Loudwire
how the song represent Crown of Phantoms
, vocalist Mark Hunter replied: "The album celebrates how there really is no true individual, that we're all an expression of the people that have surrounded our lives and even the spirits of those that were before our time. So in continuing with that, 'No Mercy,' the song itself, dives into ego death. And that would be an expression of not having any true individual."
