THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY release a new music video for “The Hip“, their fifth single taken from the current album “1901 – The First Mother“, which was released on May 5th, 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 a Dead 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!

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.
