The band started its activity back in 2002, when they were performing under the name of ABSENCE OF LIGHT, playing some classic thrash covers and also some own material, which, in the end, never came to a record. Then, some 4 years later, the band split and each member followed different musical paths: Alberto Dettori (vocals) and Mirko Virdis (drums) continued together with their existing brutal death combo UNBIRTH, as well as separately with BLOOD OF SEKLUSION and TRICK OR TREAT; Marco Quartieri (bass) joined COFFEE OVERDRIVE, while Luca Venturelli and Paolo Schioppa (guitars) participated in various acts in the local hard rock scene. Despite all that, the guys never got out of reach from each other and so, at the very beginning of 2010 Luca started talking about his desire to join forces once more and focus on their own songs. The idea was immediately approved by Alberto and Mirko, who also called UNBIRTH mate Alberto Baroni to replace Paolo on rhythm guitar. The last to join the band was eventually Eddie Cantoni (DUMPER), who took duties on bass. The time had come to choose a name and MAD MAZE fitted like a (metal) glove!
