Interview - Giovanni "Gio" Berserk (The Modern Age Slavery)

Interview with Giovanni "Gio" Berserk from The Modern Age Slavery
by Rena Karam at 03 January 2009, 10:04 PM

Death Metal was never a simple thing. It's musical specialness was always something that kept it back of the stage and it's bands carrying the underground label more than any other metal bands. But what happens when a new band appears and shows the ability to marry the traditional pure brutal sounds with an alloy of a few great modern elements? T<strong>HE MODERN AGE SLAVERY</strong> and Giovanni  are here to explain us how they became an honest yet stylish proof that Death Metal never expires.

<b>THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY</b> is really a very young project…we were born as a band one year ago. More or less, November 2007. On the other hand, 4 out of 5 of us, we shared the same stage many times with our former band <b>BROWBEAT</b>. Actually that same band went through a lot of changes in the line-up and finally came to an end in July 2007. The 5th missing element of <b>THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY</b>, <b>sYm</b> (an old friend of ours) joined the band in November 2007 as I said. Our clear intention is to create extreme music in the most intense, brutal and genuine way possible. I'd define my band as a Death Metal band with a clear and visible Hardcore attitude that finds its climax during our live shows.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

Was the recording process something you would like to repeat soon or you believe that this is something that harms the band in a physical or economical way? Do you find all those good reviews as an award to this step that lightens your way to a selling success?</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
We'd like to get in studio again before the end of this year. It's always hard to meet your deadlines when you are a musician so we prefer to push ourselves for ambitious targets. The good things we've done in the past, were born when we were rushing to meet our goals. The song <b>The Modern Age Slavery</b> was written the week before we got in studio and it's a fantastic song. Basically I find myself more productive when I'm going crazy…it harms us physically for sure, but as you can read on our bio, the need for the sweat is our eternal condemnation…ahahah! I hope this album will be a selling success, some reviewers said it's a piece of art, some other reviewers were more critical. In my opinion, when they talk about you either in a very bad or in a very good way, it means you have something to say: that is my real award.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<b>Napalm Record</b>'s guys are amazing! They work perfectly and we couldn't expect more. I never met them in person but I hope I will. We worked hard to get here, and now we are honored to be within the <b>Napalm Records</b> ranks. Hopefully we'll make them proud of their first Italian band.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

Did you ever have any bad moments that were forcing you to part your ways and split the band? If yes we would like to hear your story.</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
Every member within <b>THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY</b> would have its own story. This question is not an easy matter. This time it happens I'm doing this interview so I'll tell you my story. <b>BROWBEAT</b> were a Hardcore band born 8 years ago. The very first time I've listen to them I was part of the crowd, not of the band, back in 2000. After that I left my country for personal reasons and went working in other countries for few years. I came back to Italy three years ago when I received a call from my actual guitar player, because <b>BROWBEAT</b> were looking for a new singer. We stayed together 2 years, had an amazing time, played everywhere in Italy and in some other countries then something happened. The 5th <b>BROWBEAT</b> member was going through a tough period and decided to leave the band. That guy was the founder of <b>BROWBEAT</b> and the only leftover member from the original line-up.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
As a matter of respect for him, we decided to change the band's name and start a new project. It has been a harsh decision I have to say. Musically wise, <b>THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY</b> are a natural evolution of the last things we were composing with <b>BROWBEAT</b> but, remember, this is a very different band. Obviously what you have in your background you can hardly change. You'd see the same hardcore attitude during our shows: that indeed is still there. Besides that, and here I speak for myself,  this is MY band. It is a team and the guys are amazing. I was born as a singer with <b>THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY</b> and I'll always keep this in mind. <b>BROWBEAT</b> are the past.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

We do listen to a hell of a lot of bands and we have different influences within <b>THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY</b> line up. <b>ABORTED</b> and <b>JOB FOR A COWBOY</b> are excellent bands that really leaved a deep sign of their presence in the music scene. <b>Cocco</b> (the guitar player) listens to a lot of Death Metal bands from the 90s like <b>SUFFOCATION</b>, <b>CANNIBAL CORPSE</b>, <b>MORBID ANGEL</b>. I do agree with him that they are a must in the musical background of bands like us…they've never lost their brutal and genuine attitude throughout the years. I like as well some modern bands like the aforementioned <b>JFC</b> but I would add <b>THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER</b>, <b>THE RED CHORD</b> and <b>DECAPITATED</b>.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

Our words: the freedom of the will lacks nowadays as it always did.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
We do live in a society where we'd have every mean to be free but…do we want that? No…It is too scary. Can you imagine how scary it'd be having to choose for ourselves? I'm being ironic but that's what happens. That we tend to avoid responsibilities. And freedom is the biggest responsibility a man can have. There you go: <b>THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY</b>. You are imprisoned with chains you can hardly see. Every time you let someone else deciding for you or the world you live in, every time you don't scream because it is more comfortable to keep quiet, every time you put a bandage on your eyes because you don't wanna see; those times you are avoiding the responsibility not be a slave. Citing <b>Erich Fromm</b>, you are <i>escaping from freedom</i>.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
​<kbd class="ocp_keep" style="cursor: pointer;" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">And what about the artwork and lyrics? On the front cover you could notice a man tied up in chains with some of his senses suffocated. Do the name, artwork and lyrics finally have to do with a specific concept?</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​</kbd>​<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
Well, <b>Dennis Sibeijn</b> really pulled out an awesome piece of art here and really nailed down our vision. We wanted something really disturbing yet realistic to picture the concept of modern age slavery within an image. Basically a man enslaved by modern technology in the worst way possible, slain by it…A man that cannot see the decadence around him for he's blinded, but still is the cause of that same decadence. And he's paying the price of his own mistakes! Careful…that doesn't wanna be anything prophetic nor a disturbing message against our modern technologies. It is just an observation, turned into image, on this real nonsense: how are we making use of the knowledge we gained throughout the centuries?<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
For the rest, every lyric has its story and it's the thought of a single moment. Some journalist said that those songs are pessimistic…I do not agree. I'd say they are nihilistic. Surely, as I said before, I tried to look for a realism that could act as an awlâ on the listener's sensitivity. In general, the lyrics talk about the cognition of pain in different forms: some are destructive as in <b>Red Lines Of Obsessions</b>, whereas some other are more constructive. <b>Red Lines…</b> is a song which really reminds me to some of the worst moments in our music career. It talks about how the obsession to succeed can lead to the belief that the only true suffering is our own suffering. It is the price you pay when you have an exasperate will: loneliness! In the music business it happens very often.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
​<kbd class="ocp_keep" style="cursor: pointer;" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">​<kbd class="ocp_keep" title="qst">How are things with metal music in Italy?

<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
I could say that Italy has never been the country for Rock music in general! Big labels do not produce this kind of music for it does not have many fans and therefore it's not worthy moneywise. In our country there are many excellent metal bands that would deserve some important feedback but, unfortunately, we don't have the right means or even the right situations to let them express their art…that's why many times the bands go look for foreigner labels. Still something is moving thanks to band like <b>LACUNA COIL</b>. People are getting used to harder sonorities but, in general, we are very very far from saying that Metal could be popular.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
This record is our blood and sweat and our anger and it's been done without following a trend. If that will approach more fans it'd be definitely better but surely we didn't think about it when we composed the music. Despite that, I agree with you when you say that some new elements are there!! I'd say that, as a listener, you can expect every aspect of extreme music mixed together, from the slowdowns of the old style death metal from the 90s to the much modern Deathcore influences, with a twist of freaking HC breakdowns!!!<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
I don't like labeling bands and music genres. Everyone is free to listen to the music he likes and express his art as he wants. Then the listener will decide if he likes it as well or not. I've said nothing really…but in my mind it is a simple as this.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

Difficult question! The list would be too long. Having to make a decision I'd say <b>SLAYER</b>, <b>DEATH</b>, <b>CANNIBAL CORPSE</b>, <b>MESHUGGAH</b> and I would insert a much modern band, <b>THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN</b>.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
After the release of <b>Damned To Blindness</b> on the <u>28th of November</u> in Europe and the <u>13th of January</u> in US and Canada, we would like to play live as much as possible to promote our music and spread our message. We got some gigs already booked and we are in touch with some booking agency trying to organize a European tour and maybe an American tour. Concerning the clip, our first clip is already on line. Go check our website or look for the song <b>Vile Mother Earth</b> on YouTube.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
