Exoskelett Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

Exoskelett is the wicked siren beckoning your lonely boat to the profane shore. We are a five piece hell-black thrash metal band from Stockholm, Sweden.

2.How would you describe your musical sound?

I guess that’s up to the listener. We play metal. Maybe it’s black, maybe it’s thrash, but it is – and forever will be – metal.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

We explore the sour ground that we walk upon.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name ’Exoskelett’?

Like crayfish we rise at night.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We have never played live but we will do so in Stockholm, the third of June. It will be rememberable.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

Except for the third of june we don’t have anything planned. But we will play live for sure. Everywhere.

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black and thrash metal?

So far we’ve only got good reviews, except for some Russian guys that really hated us.

8.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

I actually like it the way it is, with us recording ourselves and so forth. (Maybe our guitarist that are mixing and mastering our tracks disagree). But of course, a label makes everything easier, so yeah, if someone asked us we happily would lay the dirty work in their hands so we could focus on the songwriting part.

9.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

I don’t know about a full length album, that’s kind of dull in a way. I like shorter releases. But that’s just me. Where we are heading? To an even darker and more grim place.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

We listen to a lot of different music. Of course it’s a lot of metal that all of your readers already know about. But the Swedish act called Rein is fucking awesome, and she’s angry as hell. Check that out!

11.Does Satanism or Occultism play any role in your music?

That also differs in the band. I guess we all can agree that we think that satanism is just like all of the other religions – a bunch of rules and ideas made up by some dude that probably made a lot of money from it. And he, LaVey that is, is just a neo-liberal asshole, like any other neo-liberal asshole. Fuck him! Some of us in the band worship what we believe in, some don’t. But none of us is a part of any religion.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?


13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Stay tuned, we will come back – we always do!
