SOCIETY 1 entered AM Recording Studios in late November with producer Raymond Herrera (FEAR FACTORY, ARKAEA, 3VOLUTION) and engineer Jeremy Blair (FEAR FACTORY, DEVILDRIVER, ZAKK WYLDE, GUNS N' ROSES) to begin recording a new six-song EP, "Screams Of A Sadist", for a 2013 release. Joining founding SOCIETY 1 member and vocalist Lord Zane in the studio are guitarist Brian Jackson (SKINLAB), bassist Brett Pirozzi (BILE) and drummer Pete Pace (LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT).
The first in a series of video clips featuring footage from the studio can be seen below.
According to a press release, the music will explore the heavier side of the SOCIETY 1 sound but keep a strong influence from their industrial roots.
"This will be the most guitar-driven album we have ever done and really wanted someone to be able to capture the heavy sound and intensity," said Zane. "Raymond and Jeremy have worked on some incredibly heavy albums and we felt they would really be able to bring the production of the SOCIETY 1 sound to another level we previously haven't reached."
After the recording is completed, SOCIETY 1 will film a new video and be looking for tours while playing selected dates.
"We are definitely going to play some one-off shows to get used to the new material live, but the main goal is to get back on tour in 2013," explained Jackson.
