It all began a night of September, a few years ago, in a lousy pub outside Milan.Read More...
Do you know the kind of pub you'd never take your date to? Got it.
That night Lex, a Gnostic internet-addicted geek whose favourite word was "equilibrium", and Iori, a weirdo talking all the time about how sugar gliders were supposed to become the dominant specie, were by fate at the same table. They spent hours about every band on the planet, strange marsupials, comics, porn and how pop At the Gates' songs were. They ended up kissing each other...no, wait, that's a whole different story, and I'm not sure I want to tell you. Or you want to know.
Whatever. They decided to form a band together. Lex at that time was playing guitar in a band called "Black Elements Of Surgery", and he called Iori to the guitar duty, so he could switch to vocals. Other members were the vocalist/bass player Gabriel (ex-Arkenemy, now EastArea) and Dj Chris. The band decided to replace drum machine with a "human" drummer, so Iori asked to join S.T.I.G.M.A , his trustworthy fake-Zionite sidekick, since they played together in several crappy-high school bands.
Unluckily, even this line-up didn't last long, in fact Gabriel decided to leave, since he wasn't comfortable with the band's musical direction. So the band started searching for a new bass player. Luckily they ended up meeting in the Milan club scene Karyl, and suddenly they decided that he suited perfectly. In the beginning they decided to take him in the band 'cause he was good looking and he lived nearby Lex, so he could give him lifts to the rehearsal (but don't tell him that), but very soon they discovered he was a good player and a great friend. A few time after Karyl joined, Chris literally disappeared. No one of the band managed to hear from him, and this was really a bad strike for BEOS' existence. Lex, Iori, S.T.I.G.MA. and Karyl decided to start from scratch, they evolved their music in a more "Song-oriented" direction, and finally decided to change the band's name.
X-Ternals were born. For a short period the "Fashion Bomb" Marta (AKA Cherry cha-Cha) joined X-Ternals as synth player and vocalist, but she soon left, preferring to focus on her work as DJ and Rock TV VJ, goin' on anyway to work with the band as make-up artist.The synth place was vacant again, and Iori asked to join Faber (already in Andark), a former actor and full time feet fetishist ,while they both were in Tokyo 's district Ikebukuro. He agreed in a glimpse of a second, and as soon they came back to Milan the new lineup started working on the first Xternals promo, "Cheap Korean Porn". Theresult was a powerful mix of thrashing guitars, breakbeats, techno patterns and vocals going from caressing whispers to the fiercer screams.
