Below are our features and interviews with Society 1.


Interview with Matt 'The Lord' Zane of Society 1

Los Angeles, California's SOCIETY 1 band is one that needs no introduction at this point.

We kicked around much killer metal music discussion, including the status of the next Society 1 album. I wanted to get more in depth at this point with him and really give everyone a much closer look into the mind of this gifted metal musician.
