The debut album from Canadian death metallers MASSIVE SLAVERY is Global Enslavement and was produced by Yannick St-Amand, who is responsible for producing such acts as Despised Icon, Beneath The Massacre, and Neuraxis. The album was recorded at Northern Studio, Northern Quebec in January, and was mixed and mastered by Pierre Rémillard (Anvil, Kataklysm, Misery Index) at Wild Studio, north of Montreal in February.
“Global Enslavement” will be released on July 26th, through Maple Metal Records, the label launched by John Belrose, producer of Exciter’s “Heavy Metal Maniac”.
MASSIVE SLAVERY hail from the towns of Val d’Or and Rouyn-Noranda, the gold-mining district in Northern Quebec.
The province of Quebec, Canada has traditionally been a hot bed for great metal talent and now MASSIVE SLAVERY can be added to that illustrious list.
Born from a concept conceived by bassist Marc-André Barrette (ex-Paroxysm) and guitarist Joël St-Amant (Descend into Nothingness), Massive Slavery was officially created in the winter of 2009.
Having previously worked with Joel in “Descend into Nothingness”, drummer Pierre-Alexandre Mercier (Decrepity) did not hesitate to join the crew. Even if the band were still looking for a frontman, they began to write and work on fresh material.
After a couple of months of hunting around, their search was finally over when vocalist Jonathan St-Pierre landed the role, to round out this new quartet.
His addition to the band gave new dynamics, and a boost of energy to push the band into finalizing the writing of their first album.
The collaboration of this musical assault GLOBAL ENSLAVEMENT, combines a mix of melodic, brutal and technical death metal.
“In these dark times when the future of humanity seems to be put in danger by individualistic and corrupt leaders, four musicians from Canada work on a musical plan aiming to reach the ranks of opposition, already well established in the middle of extreme metal.
Like a wakeup call, their goal is to alert and open the eyes of our society, to reveal the sad and brutal reality, often unseen or denied by man. It’s under this shadow of complete disillusion towards our civilization that MASSIVE SLAVERY emerge from collective ignorance, in order to defend and promote an engaged movement of resistance, fighting against the manipulators of our system.”
