Award winning director MATT “THE LORD” ZANE and co-director DAGON DESTROYER have begun working on a new film exploring the shock rock genre. This will be Zane’s follow up to 2022’s documentary “TheAltered Noise” which was about his former bandmate DV KARLOFF.In the new film, DAGON and ZANE will be interviewing various artists as
well discussing their own contributions to the genre that they became
heavily involved with when ZANE began body suspension during the bands
performances in 2002.
In addition to interviews, ZANE’s band SOCIETY 1 featuring DAGON on
drums will be followed by a camera crew when they hit the road for
next year’s “Rise Of The Machine” tour with STATIC-X, FEAR FACTORY and DOPE.”This isn’t just going to be some rehash of a shock rock documentary.
Yes we’ll have the interviews but it’s also a story about my personal
experience with body suspension and if shock rock will be accepted in
this political climate during the next tour.” said ZANE.The movie will jump between the present and newly acquired footage of
the band during their most controversial times between the years 2002
and 2006.”I’m making this film with Lord Zane who is arguably the most extreme
shock rocker of our generation. He suspended, over my drumset by
meathooks when I was only 18-years-old and my life was turned upside
down being subjected to such debaucherous and dangerous behavior while
we were on tour. Two decades later, we’ve rejoined forces to make a
film that sets out to tell the story of our lower nature and to give
people an insider look at the length performances artists are willing
to go to be remembered.

I was 19 years old when we filmed our Nothing music video for the
album Exit Through Fear with Zane suspending over my drumset. The
tours afterward were insane. Everything about Society 1 was insane,
especially for a kid. It’s surreal that we’re joining forces again
after 20 years and that we’re out with Fear Factory and Static-X. It’s
a dream for me. These two bands are a huge part of my life.” said
