Review source: Chicago Music ‘Zine (Nov. 2000)
Artist: things outside the skin
Release: God in a Box
Label: Facility Records
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 for the faint hearted, nevertheless, it’s for me! I wouldn’t really label this as industrial, though. To me, industrial is what the name implies… very mechanical sounding, with lots of clanking and heavy overtones, with steady and danceable beats. To me, this is very experimental, which makes it that much more appealing. If you’re into lots of noises, sampled sounds and voices and horror movies, this one’s for you… and me!
