Emok’s members all originally hail from Israel, and currently reside in Brooklyn. Their debut album "Shove Your Head into the Ground and Feed It to the Earth" will be released on Wrong Records Feburary 22, 2005.

"Shove Your Head into the Ground and Feed It to the Earth," on Wrong Records is a collision of composition and cacophony; intellect and emotion; heritage and progression.

The album was recorded, produced, and designed entirely by the band. Emok’s music has a pronounced Middle Eastern influence stemming from their Israeli upbringing, but restated as an explosive, intense, thoroughly modern – even futuristic – style uniquely their own. The songs on "Shove Your Head into the Ground and Feed It to the Earth" are whirling storm systems sonic hurricane force colored with vivid distortion and crackling slipstreams of harsh electronic samples. Throughout the sound is potent and relentless, utterly engulfing the listener in its dark fury, sonic tendrils probing the powerful, hidden places deep inside the psyche. The words are torn and conflicted, attempting to reconcile the ideal with the real – influenced by the circumstances of their homeland. Lyrics evince both fear and hope: they address global hate, unification by fear, distrust in political systems, divided empathy, and frustration with all that, then alternate that with idylls of exotic lands, the trust bred through friendship, hope, and escape.
