Médias/Presse :

élu meilleur skeud de l'année 2012 par Lelo Jimmy Batista (New Noise Mag // Tsugi) :

"Il y a eu énormément de bons disques cette année (Umberto, Scorpion Violente, Black Bug, J.C. Satàn, 2Kilos &More, Trésors, Midnite Snaxxx, School Jerks) mais celui que j’ai posé tout en haut de la pile est un single, celui de The Box, un duo formé par Vincent Bergier, ex-guitariste de Crash Normal. C’est précis, sec, glacial, plein de grondements menaçants et de brutalité contenue, ça tombe pile entre Chrome et les Screamers et c’est tout à fait le genre de truc capable de te redonner foi en l’Homme et sa destinée quand, dehors, tout semble déjà plus cuit que le blanc d’un oeuf au plat

la chronique dans le webzine "Perte Et Fracas":
The Box
The Door - The Brain 7''
Plastic Spoons 2012

Dans la tête de The Box, une machinerie parfaitement huilée, des rouages s'imbriquant froidement, une mécanique de précision recrachant deux pustules épineuses. A la tête de The Box, Vincent Bergier, ex-guitariste de Crash Normal. Il laisse tomber le garage-rock bricolé et seul sur les pavés du soir, il crée des bandes post-punk futuristes, à la boite à rythme robotique, à la voix distante et distordue, un synthé aux ondes sombres et maléfiques et une guitare aigrelette qui finira par exploser en mille petits morceaux coupants. Ca, c'était The Door et elle ouvre sur un morceau implacablement exciteur de neurones dont l'agitation se prolonge sur The Brain. Cerveau en ébullition, Yoann Romano en vrai bassiste décrivant de ses doigts une ligne mélodique vive et hypnotique, rythme robotique donnant vaguement envie de danser, guitare effervescente, bruits bizarres salopant la perception, minimalisme répétitif et grandissant et toujours cette agitation neuronale douloureusement plaisante ne donnant pas envie de refermer The Box.

Review in "The Styrofoam Drone" (08/20/2012)

THE BOX is offering some twisted electronic stuff with their new 7″ on Plastic Spoons Records. For those who may not know, The Box is now the home of Vincent Bergier, formerly of Crash Normal.

As far as we can tell, this new sound seems to fall somewhere into an evil synth-pop realm with plenty of cringe-worthy noise to keep your attention. Relentless A-side “The Door” will quickly give you an idea of what you’re going to endure. The track is oozing with a dark and sludgy synth hook that is broadened by clangorous guitars and tight, dagger-like licks that are spread throughout the track. Electronic percussion and creepy, shadowy vocals only help intensify the twisted nature of this challenging single. On the B-side, “The Brain” has a slightly different approach. This one has more of a bouncy, poppy edge going for it, but there’s still plenty of static-like noise crowding the air. The song begins to grow within the final two minutes, bringing us through a dense mix of relentless percussion, static noise, catchy bass lines and a metallic, swirled atmosphere to swallow it whole.

If you’re looking for something to catch you off guard today, then start with this single. Listen to both sides right now!
