Space // Ominous // Mystery // Ancient
Encounters is a band formed by 5 high school friends who are now in their early 20s. Based out of lower California near the boarder of Mexico, this progressive Djent band is slowly climbing the charts in the underground world. Influenced by ancient space travel and ominous undertones with binary code drops, Encounters is shaking the very foundation of music.
The 5 members who were already in a band when they graduated high school, decided to go on a trip to Central America and came across the Aztec ruins and from that moment on, they completely changed the way they thought about music and how difficult life was back then. Once returning from the trip, they began writing up all shorts of songs and researching everything that had to do with ancient civilization, thoughts of space travel and discovery. The idea of being free from boundaries of time and space, discovering the unknown and the everyday life on people back in ancient times has inspired them . When Encounters ventures into the realm of ambiance it actually raises the level of the song above the crushing breakdowns and demands the listener stay put for the ride. More impressive than their ability to write and record such material, is how big it all plays live. The room seems to expand and fill with spacious tones just in time to be leveled with ferocity. The band is razor sharp while nailing every bit of nuance their ambitious songwriting offers.
With a label now in place, Encounters recently spent time in the studio producing their first studio album “ We Came From Dreams”. For every bit of progression and aura the band offers up on Impulse, comes an equal and unforgiving onslaught of heaviness. Just when heavy metal had seemed to reach a ceiling on how punishing a sound could get, Encounters raised the bar even higher.
The font I used for the logo I got off Behance, from another artist, I want to give him credit but I can't remember his name, if anyone knows who I'm talking about let me know so I can give him credit for the typeface.
