Emerging amidst a sea of deathcore, Italy’s THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY separated themselves from the rest with their visceral sense of the genre. Coming equipped with grinding blast beats, merciless brutal vocals and slaughtering rapid-fire double bass patterns their sound developed and became increasingly unique over time.
Since forming in 2007, THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY have triumphed over their challenges. After the release of their demo, which was nominated “Demo of the Month” in Rock Hard Germany, they got signed to Napalm Records for the release of the debut album “Damned To Blindness” (2008). Thanks to significant acclaim from the metal world, THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY extensively toured across Europe both as headliners and as support act, joining the “Evisceration Plague Tour” featuring CANNIBAL CORPSE, DYING FETUS & OBSCURA and the “Doomsday X Tour” featuring MALEVOLENT CREATION and VOMITORY. The band also played selected shows with FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, SEPULTURA, DECAPITATED, SUICIDE SILENCE and more.
The release of the second album “Requiem For Us All” (2013) pushed their death metal war machine one step forward again, and brought the band on the road along with GORGOROTH, VITAL REMAINS, HYPOCRISY, plus many gigs on national soil. Four years later THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY released their third full-length “Stygian” after a line-up change, which signed a new chapter in the sound of the band, introducing black metal riffing, keyboards, atmospheres and orchestral elements. Released by Innerstrength Records, the album brought the band on tour around Europe, supporting VADER and ENTOMBED A.D. in their “European Chaos Tour” 2018, as well as sharing stages with JINJER, DECAPITATED, INCITE, and recently they hit the road again, having played in big festivals with SLIPKNOT, SABATON and BEHEMOTH.
The year of the corona-pandemic, when the music world was forced into a standstill, THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY focused on the writing and recording of their new piece of art, “1901 | The First Mother” which will see the light of the day in May 2023 on Fireflash Records. Any fan of extreme metal will be blown away by their crushing mix. Praised by Metalsucks.com as “the most underappreciated metal band in all of Italy, and possibly all of Europe”, on “1901 | The First Mother” the five-piece lies somewhere on a vast spectrum of blackened deathcore and aggressive metal.
