Society's Finest recruits ex-Zao drummer

Thursday, August 2, 2007 8:54 PM PT / 7,143 views
Former Zao drummer Jesse Smith has now joined Society's Finest. Here's a statement from the group: "The newest addition to the fold is an old friend of the band. Jesse Smith made his name as the beat machine behind metal powerhouse Zao and will be playing drums on the new record. Now, with a new perspective on the world and music itself, Society's Finest is poised to make its next move. Currently writing and in production for their next release, the band is more focused than ever. They are currently locked away in hammering out songs that will become the sum of a band who have influenced many of today's biggest metal acts."

playdough_head 8/2/2007 10:01:47 PM

Why even bother. They've been steadily going downhill for about 5 years now.

That last cd was not good

capellabled 8/3/2007 12:14:25 AM

slaytyricon 8/3/2007 1:00:08 AM

sceneofthecrime 8/3/2007 1:32:05 AM

Didn't jesse just rejoin zao not too long ago? Now he's actually going to play for society's finest? jesse...man, zao's all you've got.

sacralplexus 8/3/2007 3:00:15 AM

Fraility 8/3/2007 3:12:50 AM

I enjoyed their last cd...i'll give it a chance.

on3break 8/3/2007 3:35:58 AM

what a feg

xvegeedgex 8/3/2007 5:03:57 AM

good move. current Zao is horrible.

Brett_Swill 8/3/2007 7:27:31 AM

That dude sucks, at being a person I mean.

hardware 8/3/2007 8:12:47 AM

He is an awesome drummer cause he hits hard is what I'm told. Hopefully he is ready to do some coke with his band mates.

prettymetal 8/3/2007 8:42:50 AM

has anyone seen this dude lately? he gained like 100 lbs and looks like a homeless girl...

ryansmithxvx 8/3/2007 8:42:54 AM

it's only fitting that the 2 metalcore bands with the most member changes ever continue to share members. josh of SF sang for zao for a while, now jesse of zao will drum for SF. this brings SF's member count to 113 or something

forumdrama 8/3/2007 10:35:22 AM

This band is fcking balls awful, but I back Jesse Smith - the only good drummer Zao ever had.

nashvegas 8/3/2007 10:42:10 AM

The last record was a let down, if they write the new record along the lines of 'the journey..' that would be awesome. And the new Zao in my opinion was good..either way if both units do less generic metalcore i'm all for it

john_doe 8/3/2007 11:04:57 AM

good drummer but band poison. the band will be broken up within 2-3 years because he's a fcking band nazi.

picturesofme 8/3/2007 12:17:34 PM

"a band who have influenced many of today's biggest metal acts"...yeah, fcking I don't think so. hahahahahaha.

holycitybradley 8/3/2007 12:44:32 PM

why is this news?

NeedHope 8/3/2007 1:36:44 PM

Jesse smith was the first to do everything or so he said in the Zao dvd, he wore eyeliner first, sucked dck, took it up the ass...

ipecac 8/3/2007 3:02:14 PM

so...how long until he starts complaining that he has to drive a thousand miles to practice?

dead_turtle_pussy 8/3/2007 4:14:57 PM

SF and Zao will never have it like they did in their Solidstate hayday.

justhaveheart 8/3/2007 5:37:28 PM

Jesse Smith joins another band doing more of that thing called going nowhere...

keinegnade 8/3/2007 7:56:28 PM

jesse smith is a gay. watch him in that zao dvd.. he is a sucking gay

gglives 8/3/2007 9:53:33 PM

both suck balls

swampthang 8/3/2007 10:17:28 PM

Soon every band member of zao will have a turn in SF

sgd54 8/4/2007 1:29:12 AM

Everyone, Jesse isn't gay or even close. He's a good Christian. And he's not homeless, not into cocaine, quit wearing eyeliner and lost a lot or weight. Hr id not doing cocaine.

redandblackink 8/4/2007 1:09:48 PM

everyone, everyone! hr id not doing cocaine!
