Forming in late 2011 with guitarist and vocalist Blake Pennycook, and drummer Jarek Brown, Slave State was currently un-named but spawning and recreating song left and right. With the disband of former bands Cerastine Order and Priory, Blake and Jarek decided to keep pushing forward with their creativity. During the late winter of 2012 guitarist Eric Morettin (The Vilification) was recruited by Blake and thus began adding more elements and dynamics to the guitar section. Rounding out Slave State is bassist James Erwin who joined just after Eric stepped foot into the band. Slave State combines old school thrash metal, death metal, and the new wave of American heavy metal into their writing. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for tunes and shows with Slavestate!
