Italy’s Blackened Deathcore outfit THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY, has unleashed an official video for the track “The Hip”, taken from its latest album “1901 | The First Mother”, released earlier this year via Fireflash Records.
The video is a mix of live footage from shows in 2023, held by the band to promote the new album and from their performance at the Hills Of Rock Festival in Bulgaria in 2022.
Frontman Giovanni Berselli comments: ” ‘The Hip’, freely inspired from a Poem by Federico Taccini, talks about The Hipster culture – also recalling another TMAS song, ‘Icon Of ADead World’. ‘The Hip’ kinda underlines ‘the need’ to survive difficult times and to experience different cultures to truly appreciate ‘the place we call home’. The video though, is a collection of live shots. Indeed, the live action is the dimension we prefer, as it provide us the opportunity to fully vent our anger and to express our message in the best way possible, truly allowing us to touch our people! THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY is a band that ‘lives live’, I’ll never get tired of stating that!”
On “1901 | The First Mother” the five-piece lies somewhere on a vast spectrum of Blackened Deathcore and Aggressive Metal. 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.
“1901 | The First Mother” track listing:
- Pro Patria Mori
