Every once in a while a band comes around that makes you stop and take notice. A band where the words of the lyrics matter. Where the voice of the front-man is one filled with the emotion of the lyrics. Society's Soul presents a refreshing and different type of voice in today's musical landscape. A voice that strives to dig deeper into the psyche of society and humanity. A voice that is brave and compassionate enough to ask what is going wrong in the world. Taking a stand on the social and environmental issues plaguing the world today, Society's Soul takes on these issues with hard-hitting introspective lyrics that draw the listener in. Even though by its nature some of the subject matter may be bleak in songs such as these, they are always presented with a positive and optimistic faith-based outlook which leaves the listener feeling hopeful and empowered instead. That captures the essence of what this band is about. That is what Mario M., the charismatic founder, songwriter and front-man of Society's Soul, has been known for.
Starting his introspective journey many years ago with his former band Vogue's Rogues and then continuing it during a latin solo career, Mario continues his musical evolution and spiritual journey with Society's Soul. Society's Soul approaches its songs with musical aggressiveness and lyrical pleas to reform, not conform. Mario takes great pride in his approach and philosophy to making his special brand of music - "Lyrics that make you think, music that rocks your soul". His aggressive yet positive approach also is represented in the Society's Soul live show.
Mario's unique relationship with his fans is well-known. This is an artist who knows the importance and value of what his fans mean to him. He is well-known for personally keeping in touch with each and every one of his fans. Certainly an incredible task but that devotion is what makes Mario a unique personality and why his fans are so devoted to him. As Mario says, “the serious topics I discuss in my songs sometimes paint a too serious perception of me so it's important and good for me to connect with my fans on a personal level and let them see that I have another side to me altogether! Interacting with my fans helps me to see the world through their eyes and that helps me to connect Society's Soul to my fans and to represent them and my music even better”.
The debut album for Society’s Soul titled “Soulscream” was released on March 25, 2014. It is an ambitious 24 track concept album with a redemptive story of overcoming adversity and finding faith in a ever scarier and confusing world. The first single off the album titled "Flicker of my soul" was released on January 7, 2014. This introspective song encapsulates the redemptive personal journey that Society's Soul takes the listener on through the album. It is a deeply personal and empowering song that listeners will be able to relate to their lives in various ways. The companion song to "Flicker of my soul" on the physical CD single is the album track "Money is God", a song about the misguided view of money in society where it is thought of as above all else. These two songs are a great introduction to Society's Soul and what its "Society" and "Soul" represents. This is just a sample of the emotional journey the listener will undertake on "Soulscream".
With introspective lyrics, emotion filled vocals and music that goes from hard rockers to acoustic ballads to spoken word pieces, you can see that this is no ordinary band. This is just what is needed, an extraordinary band that reflects today's extraordinary world.
