Society 1 - _Slacker Jesus_
(Inzane Records, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (
I admit, I like what lead singer Matt Zane (Yes! The porn director for those in the know) is doing with his band Society 1. The ideas are there, I just don't think the music really stands up to the amount of creativity Matt Zane has in him and how he actually wants to approach the structure of the song. Sounding like a (weaker) cross between Fear Factory, Psychotica, Marilyn Manson and newer era Ministry, the music of Society 1 is flat, uninspired and not really going anywhere. Zane tries to make things work, and they do on some numbers (i.e "Get My Back" and "Look at Your Life"), but overall this is a wasted cause, as it could have been ten times better. Here's hoping the new record (tentatively titled _Exit Through Fear_) is a much better sonic ride for us to digest next time we meet up with Society 1.
