Illinios Entertainer – THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN “God in a Box” (2000)

Review source: Illinios Entertainer (April 2000) Artist: things outside the skin Release: God in a Box Label: Facility Records

Things Outside The Skin seem more like horror film directors on God in a Box than an actual band. Inside the packaging are warnings about killer zombies and other such things, while the music contained […]

This is some cool shit! Fans of mainstream music will probably not get into this, but I’m sure Chicago’s T.O.T.S. wants it that way. With references to horror flicks and zombies, this isn’t […]

Flesh Made Word – THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN “God in a Box” (2000)

Review Source: Flesh Made Word (Nov. 2000) Artist: things outside the skin Release: God in a Box Label: Facility Records

Erratic and often-noisy industrial which at times has a sound as crust laden and generally filthy as a Lucio Fulci soundtrack. Heavy on the analogue ambience, and shot through with dark humour, Things Outside the […]

In Faction – THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN “God in a Box” (1999)

Review source: In Faction issue #4 Artist: things outside the skin Release: God in a Box Label: Facility Records

This self released CDR is an interesting collage of distorted vocals, dubs, and at times experimental Industrial noise. The keyboard work is simple but well done and adds a nice flavor to most of the songs […]

Things Outside the Skin (T.O.T.S.) “God in a Box” TOTS are from Chicago and continue the tradition of raw-hide robotic yet somehow funky industrial electro as developed by such outfits as The Revolting Cocks. Comparisons can […]

The music is the modern musical equivalent of the early hammer horror schlock out of Hollywood. At once it is intriguing and full-of-crap. God in a Box slaps the ‘industry’ in the face, laughs, and slaps again. Blips, ticks, […]

:DARK AND AGGRESSIVE ELECTRO: The dark humor and tongue in cheek attitude on God in a Box makes this experimental and noisy industrial group more entertaining than the average cyberpunk band. With an eclectic variety […]

I would describe t.o.t.s. or things outside the skin as electro/experimental /industrial/thrash. They have real innovative and unconventional song structures that have immense power. Fail Safe (track 10) is hard, very dark and its electronic sounds […]
