“"If you are a fan of classic metal, you need to check out these underdogs from Arlington, Texas. Slaves Wage has been honing its craft since 2004 and it really shows on their latest album Heaven or Hell."”
What is now Slaves Wage began with Jeff Saenz in 1996 as the group Monastic Extroverts and later Soul Slave in Temple, Texas, USA. Jeff made the move to the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex in 2000 settling in Arlington, Texas, in the hopes of finding a more like-hearted, like-minded group of musicians with which to make music. All band members are Christians and their love for all things heavy and their Lord prove to be a match made in Heaven. Thick guitars, searing solos and clean melodic vocals pushed by driving drum and bass lines bring home the life-giving, heart-healing, hope-inspiring message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ set to the heavy sounds of the heavy metal genre!
