Biography

We can sit around the table and toss opinions all over the place the fact of the matter is that Encounter Box represents every thing artistic thats missing in music today.... It has a sense of style worth checking out.
We really don't see the need to bore you with any history lessons, instead we'll share with you our hunger and ambition for making good music and having a good time doing it. Because that is what we are all about. Encounter Box has been going strong for 4 years now and there are no signs of letting down. We work hard to create music that not only voices our opinions but also grabs the listener and makes them think for a few minutes.. You dont really get that in alot of tunes these days.You hear it but you aren't listening....we make you listen..
Our beats are life threatening, watch out for the shrapnel! Rythmic synth hooks reminisant of the late 70's early 80's, tricky loops, ominous samples, gritty guitar riffs......its all in there......Its like we just ran through a music time line and took a bit of everything back with us.... Between the 2 of us we listen to almost everything......Industrial, Hip Hop, Metal, Funk, Jazz you name it. And its not only music that singes our creative desires....We look around everyday life and use that to fuel our unique style as well....Life has so much to offer, good and bad.....Being from NY has given us our share of ups and downs too..why not express those feelings..
Thats what we try to bring to the table. We are not an image. We are everyday people that you can relate to.
When we aren't busy expressing our feelings we are hard at work on the buisness end of things with our own label Moss Covered Records. It's a total DIY thing, very indie.....Don't get the wrong idea, this is hard work and we spend countless hours promoting, networking and booking shows...
And thats where you come in, the person reading this, your ears listening to the music, your body feeling the beats and your mind expressing interest in our art makes it all worth while.
2004 has Encounter Box has become involved with Amp Energy Drinks college radio program and are featured on Amp 6 Pack Volume 15. Amp will also be sponsering EB on select live events.

Lyrics

Unintentional Destruction

Written By: Llama and Digital T

Addiction Runs dry, dreams burn up
Its in our nature to destroy ourselves...
16 year olds’, handguns,tear filled eyes
whats life become to go to school and see your friends die?
take 2 steps foward,ten more back
neurotic decesions, valium attack

(chorus)

Its’ like a cancer, growing inside
Its like a cancer, eating me up
Pullin me down
pusin me back
unintentional Destruction- I didn’t mean that

Put yourself in their shoes, If you were doin this would it seem right to you/
Confrontation seems to be lacking, parents need to ask, thats where they’re slacking
Bad Excuses-Below Zero
You’ve got to be your own confidence hero

(Chorus)

Crease the mood, see whrere you’re at
Paradox creation, life line flat
waste of time, cant seem to forget, horror, lifes’ on the tv set
it wont go away cause its’ always on
crys from between the lines

(chorus)

They’ve got you on your knees and your ready to pray
when all you really got to do is pay
So let the preacher burn, on his box
Shout Hallelujah, and break the locks
No soapbox superstar gonna reach me and tell me how my life should be
dont want no endorsements and no guarantee
Because it all expires with the warranty

(chorus)

Image Conscious

Written By: Llama and Digital T

Feed your mindset contemplate to scared to ask yourself why, things are they way they are
Tears in the Mirror, Yesterdays News, theres no reflection when you lose
self loathing i despise, the digital look thats in your eyes

(chorus)

Image Conscious- Not Yourself
Image Conscious-Someone Else

Whilte lights, silicone centerfolds
21st century, the latest mold
pictures made with what we want, the perfect creatures,mindless thoughts
Dressed up in lies and fashion statements....these images......I can’t take it

(chorus)

Image Conscious-Not Alive
Image Conscious-Dead Inside

Dipped in Plastic, resonate, ideasd start to take form
shaped and colored to fit your life
generations fixed on style, out of focus,sampled smile

You get out what you put in, nothing matters....so nothings in

(chorus)

You get out what you put in, nothing matters, so nothings in

Image Conscious-So Obsessed- Image Conscious So Obsessed

Break the Silence

Written By: Llama, Digital T

Break the Silence

Break!
Break!
Break!
We've got to break the silence

Suffocated, buried underground
Frustrated, been waitin for someone to hear our call....

(Chorus)
So we turn the bass up
and we push your head back
and let the music take control..
We’ve got to Break....Break....Break....
We’ve got to break the silence
Break......Break....Break.....
We’ve got to Break the Silence

Once i give it, i can’t take it back
Pass it like a disease
Encounter Box catchin you unprotected
infect you with reality
Chaos on the Dance Floor
Encounter Box enlisted for a war
Armed and ready with Beats and Science
you know we’ve got to........

(Chorus Twice)

Tunnel Vision on the Radio
Manipulate Static, Minds Explode
Tension Envelope on the Screen
Metronome Click, Record Lights Green....

(Chorus)
