t.o.t.s. has been on hiatus for a number of years now… maybe some day that’ll change? Until then…

Blight Productions: bass
Lars Casteen: guitars
Ericah Hagle: vox

Brief Synopsis:
Having been writing and performing with various bands since 1991, things outside the skin was created in 1997 by Chvad SB. Previous to that he wrote and recorded with Recherche’ (1991-1997), Blood in Vain (1996-1997) and Mutant Yamulkas (2000-current).

Originally from the swampy depths of Blackwater, VA., Chvad SB currently resides in the not so swampy depths of Brooklyn, NY.

Misguided, insecure, loud, raging, lunatic, hypocritical, ill tempered and yet kind to animals, things outside the skin lay a ground work of audio mayhem riddled with bitter social commentary.

“The only fitting musical comparison is Skinny Puppy on crack.” – The Illinois Entertainer
