(AKA) Often refferred to as an EARGASM
1. When something sounds so good hitting your ear that white hot liquid drips down your ear because it feels so good.
2. The Exoskeleton.
In the dead of night, the dirt shifts and shakes, and from the graves of The Barcait Couture (former band name), The Exoskeleton rise. Members Vinny Malave, Reece Austin, and Jason Rauen have scratched and clawed their way to the surface, with harder shells and heavier music. The addition of bassist Max Steinberg has reinvigorated their sound with a thunderous force that rumbles in your chest. Guitarists/Vocalists Vinny and Reece have cast off their roots to craft a unique style filled with contrasting harmonies and surging melodies that breathe new life into this grey world. Accompanied by drummer Jason, their music pulsates with intensity, hammering heavier than ever.
Since their arrival in October of 2010, The Exoskeleton has given glimpses as to exactly what this monster has become. The debut of songs "Johnny Muerto," a gorish and gruesome tale of a boy accompanied by vicious guitars and thrashing beats, and "Death by Stereo," an homage to the true vampire which marches tenaciously and builds to a dominating cresendo, have proven this band is methodical in its madness; each song leaves you wanting more. Earlier works, such as "112 Ocean Ave" and "His and Hearse," altered to match the complexity this insect is capable of, the melodies ebb and flow with new rhythms that ensnare. The Exoskeleton has already made their presence known in the Chicago music scene, playing with locally renowned band, The Action Blast. In the short time since The Exoskeleton’s inception, their captivating sound has spanned the city, from shows at the The Metro, Bottom Lounge and even the Congress Theatre. All well known, great venues from the Chicago area.
