The Slave Eye was formed in late 2015, by Siervo and Eero Tertsunen, as an online project. Inspired by underground metal, they set to carve their own antithetical path, defined by layers of melodies, bloodcurdling vocals, and themes of resistance and self-liberation.
While completing their first demo Black Rust in the United States and Finland, Daniel Cordova and Joonas Heikkinen joined the project, launching The Slave Eye into a full band. Although members contribute from remote locations, Raleigh, North Carolina, serves as their base of operations.
Black Rust was released in digital format on May 1, 2016. The Slave Eye is working on material for a full-length album to be announced at a later date.
