I'm not a big fan of remix albums... but this one's not too bad for what it is. Released prior to "Tactiq" (which is strange since most of the remixed songs on this are from "Tactiq"), this would be good to whet one's appetite for things to come from this Colorado-based industrial band. The remixes are all pretty good -- they brought in some good talent for them, like the now-defunct Apparatus (N.C.), and members of Alien Faktor, Hate Dept., Drown, and Idiot Stare. Hate Dept.'s Steven Seibold shows himself to be a master of remixing (he's done plenty of it for other bands), cranking out three "Dept. of Hate" mixes. If you like remix albums or really like to hear the interpretations by these other bands, this is worth getting. Otherwise, I'd recommend heading straight to the source and buy "Tactiq" instead. (4 out of 5 stars)

The majority of industrial dance music seems to carry this kind of lame injury inside it, a weakness, a lack of balls. Society Burning are immune to this disease of the wimps. Thick waves of distortion filled with tender bites and kisses are obliterated by krisp driving percussion, inducing pelvic madness in the disciples of club-core dancehalls. Passionate, emotion-tearing, heart-ripping vocals command the body, rough flesh screams and barks gracefully yet forcefully spill out barebones "no forgiveness" lyrics. Apparatus contributes the Swineflesh mix of "Tactiq", Hate Dept.'s Seibold rebuilds three tracks into dance floor commanders, Drown and Alien Faktor throw their hands into the chaos, and Idiot Stare's Chad Bishop masterfully retailors the cruel and brutal "Waster" into an even harsher, fuzzgun driven entity. Entropy.Lingua is worth giving up a few meals to afford, but if you can stand to suffer through that same 0l' wimpy industrial dance music dominating the scene a little longer, Society Burning's full- length release, Tactiq, should be out on Re-Con right quick. If you enjoy the whole Re-Con sound - Apparatus, 16 Volt, and bands of that nature -Society Burning should be right up your alley. dkorst.

The remixes before the original versions. What an original concept. Apparently so many folks sent in remixes (seven are featured here, along
with a radio mix of "Awaken"), that Chase decided to pump this out as a way of introducing folks to the Society Burning sound. Okay,
I remember this act for its cover of "Stand and Deliver" on the Shut Up Kitty compilation. A cool, distortion-full sound with some nice beat work. You can hear that in these remixes, as well as the personal visions of the folks involved (three from Siebold of Hate Dept., Chad Bishop of Idiot Stare and the collective Apparatus, among others)
And the Siebold remixes are king here. Three totally different versions of the Society Burning sound, all completely ready for the club floor.
I'm not usually terribly excited about remix sets (though there's usually one or two that gets me off). All of these are good, and some are great. I'd have to hear Tactiq (the forthcoming full-length) to really judge this work, but what I hear is damned fine. ~ii
A&A #101, March 1996
Mixes by Apparatus, some guy from Drown, some Hate Dept. guy, some guy from Idiot Stare, and Alien Faktor. I never did like typical industrial. I don't like this, especially with all the cliches. Reminds me almost of a mix of (SCARY FOR THOSE THAT KNOW) bad Front Line Assembly or old Fiberglass Orange with a
bit of MACE. Kind of techno-industrial dance with sung vocals (no distortion) and the usual industrial commercialism. If it wasn't for Alien Faktor (definitely a projekt to invest some money in, but even here he can't make something so typical as good) this would be in MY Entropy Bin.

U.S.Rocker Magazine, April 1996
If you've been craving new music a band to check out is Society Burning. They have just released a remix CD entitled Entropy Lingua to promote a soon to be released full length CD called Tactiq. Society Burning is best described as industrial dance music, danceable beats, aggressive electronics, angry vocals, and spurts of guitar chacterize their songs. The remixes on Entropy Lingua are done by members of Apparatus, Hate Dept., Drown, Idiot Stare, and Alien Faktor. There are five different songs and eight tracks on Entropy Lingua.
Society Burning songs are an irresistable force where the beat will not be denied. An extreme example of this is the powerhouse "Awaken". The alternating vocals of both members grab your attention while the electronics hook you and keep you wriggling. If you still aren't convinced about Society Burning you can hear "Awaken" on the Re-Constriction sampler. Last time I checked you could get this tape free by contacting Chase at: Re-Constriction 4901-906 Morena Blvd San Diego, CA 92117- 3432. Besides checking out Society Burning, there's plenty of excellent tracks from other Re-Constriction bands on the sampler so what are you waiting for? It's free!
The Melodia, April 1996
lf there's only one thing wrong with this record, kids, and it's that the release date should've been pushed back a month. Fact is, everyone is so busy knocking each other over at the check-out counter of Camelot Music trying to get the new Ministry or Skinny Puppy discs, that only those with the keenest eyes will notice this remix sampler from Colorado's synth-core kings. Funny now to think that Chase almost excluded this band from the now legendary Rivet Head Culture comp because they sounded "too much like Nine Inch Nails." Truth is, their included single, Party Girl, does show a definate Reznor influence. Nonetheless, only the inferior production quality precludes it from sure status as an Aggro- Tech classic. Now, approximately two years later, ReConstriction finally provides us with hew material from the band. Entropy Lingua is an eight-track---song-wise, not gear---e.p. of originals, remixed by some of the industry's most-talented newcomers. Most notably, Hate Dept.'s Seibold fit three cuts into his production/remixing schedule and reconstructed Awaken into one of the coolest dlgi-dance tracks I've heard in ten years. Label mates Apparatus contribute to the upcoming full-length's title track, Tactiq ; while Chad Bishop and Joseph Bishara both add their distinctive ingredients to the "mix" (on Waster and Immobilize Me, respectively). Heavy, club-oriented rhythm tracks thump below searing guitar riffs and chant-inducing lyrics to make Entropy Lingua this month's CyberSelection... One of the most important records you'll ever buy... (5 gears) ---(4901-906 Morena Blvd, San Diego, CA, 92117-3432) ---R M
