Society 1 guitarist now endorsed by Schecter, announces new DIMINISHED 7 EPLos Angeles based musician Alex Crescioni – guitarist for industrial/metal band Society 1 – has announced the release of a new EP, titled B.A.T.S., from his band DIMINISHED 7. Currently in production by Crescioni at his own Stygian Sound studio, he states that the new EP will take on a new direction from the gothic metal of past DIMINISHED 7 outings. “I follow my inner sonic vision as much as possible,” states Crescioni, “and try not to conform to one genre.” B.A.T.S. follows up on the band’s 2014 single, “(S)unraveling,” and will contain four tracks taking on more extreme black and death metal influences. “This is the record I was always meant to make,” says Crescioni, continuing, “I’ve finally found my true sound.”
In addition, Crescioni has been added to the roster of artists endorsed by Schecter Guitar Research, alongside his Society 1 band mates bassist Dirt Von Karloff and sometime guitarist Sin Quirin (whose own signature model was released earlier this year). Crescioni, who had previously performed using PRS, says of the endorsement, “I’m honored to be part of the Schecter family!” He continues, “The guitars are light and feel great on stage.” Society 1 will be continuing to perform regional shows throughout the year in support of the most recent album, A Collection of Lies; additional dates can be found on the Society 1 Facebook profile. Crescioni joined the band in January of 2015 following the departure of Beau Ashley, recently appearing for the first time with the band in the most recent music video, “Pain and Torture.”
