"LaLa Presse"

The brass rock band "Empty Black Box" was appeared suddenly from the street scene last year, flew about national every place, such as appearing on "FUJI ROCK festival '04".
Man-and-woman mixture and the individual stage performance in which nine persons jump about to a lock popularly are the highlights! With certain foreign-affiliated company CD Shop's indies chart, the maxi single "FOOLISH" sold to 1st body in June following the album "HYAKUNEN TATTEMO-even if 100 year passes-" gains the 1st place. And the new work "JUNJO BOX- purehearted box-" used as the 3rd CD will be put on the market in January, 2006.
ROCK, POP, SKA, JAZZ ... Feel their heat which scuttles without being caught by a genre! - 2005.12


The brass rock band of the nine-person organization formed focusing on yatz in 2002. In a passionate singing voice and the powerful sound which the child who cries also dances, the live house in Tokyo and live activity on the street are performed, and many people are charmed. The original music view which is not caught by a genre, and a melody to come to hum involuntarily and a straight and hot message transcended age sex, and have created impression to many people. - CDDETA


Feeling got blocked with confused modern society to the limit Empty Black Box put and emitted to a forcible, beautiful, and pliant sound. To the inside of the heart which became empty and became it dry One drop of grace which is not visible is given to eyes.

I thought that it was a band which is not decorated. I regard Mr. Yatz's voice, a melody, band ensemble, and which as it being very simple and the forcibleness of this band being there.

" Is this band an indies?!" -- the first impression. He was surprised at the highly complete sound source. However, I think that sound, sound, and "the human stink" whose glimpse is from the crevice between rhythms are the charm of this band. "allow [ it / from yesterday / just for a moment ]" I myself will do my best. Everybody should just also have you think so.
---Takuichiro Hayashi (vice-chief editor JUICE MAGAZINE )

Please read only words at first. And please feel sound. It is not only tenderness and doubtful dangerous alluring atmosphere. View of the world of individual words! And please close and listen to eyes. Big talk ... Scenery has shown up. ---Daisuke Suzuki a.k.a Dolly (RISINGTONES)

When I hear Empty Black Box for the first time, I want to have come to see the face of the owner of this voice extremely. And the photograph was seen and I have been convinced. It is very easy to hear a musical piece and words. But it is because only voice was very impudent. The impudence which has preparedness also under what is pleasant. In this voice, the posture of Vo.Yatz which is going to sacrifice itself to the band has appeared. Would you divide a few also into the "impudence" and me, when it meets recently?
---YAMA-chang (?D?F?lŽí)

A melody does not separate flatly.

"HYAKUNEN TATTEMO-Even if 100 year passes-" is equal to Stones's number "100 years before."

"LaLa Presse"

The atmosphere in the hall changed completely even in it.
They who take up position to the limit of the stage of the live house which can never be said to be large are the power full open from the 1st music. An audience is instigated from on a stage. The quiet audience of night rose in the twinkling of an eye. . There is only what makes people's leg stopped in the road truly. An audience will be immediately made into his fan. 2nd music the 3rd music and an audience are involved in and it has involved in Empty Black Box's pace instantly. Their music is fundamentally pleasant only by hearing it. However, it is more pleasant when a stage is seen. If it rises together with them, pleasant supreme ‚Ð and the supreme pleasant time can be experienced. The voltage in the hall is also the climax when the 4th music starts. Power is increasingly directed also towards their performance. It is hung by it and an audience also does a heat rise. When he had noticed, the body had minced nature and a rhythm. This wonderful upsurge of sentiment will really be what. The comfort in which the heart bounces that it is lighthearted will be what. The one completely put on heat at performance was in the sound which they emit. There are no characters other than "perfect combustion" in the stage of them who aim at the highest entertainment. I want to already see the next stage from the moment the stage finished. It was such performance which is numbed. - Monthly Recommend
