Actually two music videos here in the article (reminding us that Cleveland continues to exert a tenacious hold over the highly-fractured world of rock) that showcase the efforts of this "singer-songwriter" (a monicker that's 180 degrees from its original definition fifty years ago) who sounds as though he's trying to transcend the Alice Cooper-Marilyn Manson-Nine Inch Nails continuum and find a niche in what one might call "grunge-metal noir."
To these ears, the songs seem to be getting better...Mercyhill might yet escape to the light of day by slashing his way through the darkness. See what you think of "Wide-Awake Nightmare" and "Anesthetic"... https://www.clevescene.com/scene-and-heard/archives/2021/02/19/local-singer-songwriter-steven-mercyhill-releases-new-single-and-accompanying-music-video
