Mass Murder Agenda was born in the late summer of 2009 by Bass player Joakim Hedestedt (Face Down, Nation Beyond, ex-Construcdead). The idea was to mix thrash with industrial metal and no intention at all of sounding original, just aggressive enough to play live. After writing four bone crushing songs, came the hard task of putting together the right band.
For vocals Joakim chose his long time friend Tristan Agdler (ex-NIL) for his perfect mix of hard and melodic voice.
For programming and technical issues the hard burden fell on Henrik Blomqvist (ex-Face Down), a choice that shown to be over all expectations.
When it came to drums there were only one name, Christoffer Barkensjö (Face Down, Kaamos, The Recistance) Beside the fact of friendship, Chris is by far one of the best metal drummers out there.
After trying a few guitar players, an friend mentioned that her boyfriend, Martin Sundberg (ex-Sexy Death) was looking for a way to break into the more aggressive metal scene. Needless to say this was one of the best choices ever, besides being a very good friend, Martins playing brings the right heaviness and programing skills to nail the right industrial sound Mass Murder Agenda was looking for.
Since the bands inception, MASS MURDER AGENDA‘s explosive liveshows and industrial harcore has built momentum for the band . With their combined influences from such ledgendary acts such as Ministry, Slayer, Killing Joke , and MASS MURDER AGENDAs own vision, the band has created a sound missing in metal today.
