Jason is head of A&R for Hollywood records now.

Here’s a review from Middle Aged Youth:
Encounter - Lost

Here’s yet another example of a great band dropping one phenomenal record and proceeding to drop off the face of the earth. Encounter were a Straight Edge Hardcore band from New Jersey that hit the scene at a time when the massive SE boom of the mid-late 80s was collapsing on itself and all of the old bands were either going post-Hardcore or dropping out of the scene altogether. The “Lost” 7” was released on Redemption Records in 1991, containing 4 songs that were recorded at the infamous Don Fury Studios NYC in June.
