Album Notes
"Loaded Weapons And Darkened Days” is the fourth full-length release from veteran electro group CTRL. Blending punchy sequences, melancholy guitars, and bleak, poetic lyrics, CTRL has created a record which transcends the
boundaries of EBM. After the group's first two studio albums, "Secure the Shadow" (1998), and "Is Burning" (2001), original vocalist Joel Willard decided to follow other pursuits, leaving the band in a state of disarray. After taking a break to produce tracks with his side project, Low Technicians, keyboardist and founding member Brad MacAllister decided to restart the band, and assume main vocal duties, with the backing of new member Alex Virlios (formerly of Provision). Guitarist and lyricist Jason Fenimore stayed on, and the new form of CTRL was complete. A third album, “Lose The Image” (2004) was released to a warm reception, as the band honed in on their new genre-crossing sound. Mutual friend Damon Shelton (previously in bands such as Mentallo and the Fixer) joined to lend his talents as a keyboardist and live member. Not content to rest on their laurels, the band continued into 2005 hard at work on their newest record, “Loaded Weapons And Darkened Days”. Continuing down the path set forth by “Lose The Image”, CTRL gives us their unique take on
modern electronic music. Shimmering, 4AD-esque guitars collide with club-ready riffs, and the package is tied together with moody, melancholy songs.

All Other CTRL releases are currently available through CDBABY:

Is Burning...-2001

Bart Manintveld

post-apocalyptic genius!
This CD is absolutely fantastic. CTRL continues down the path they started with LoseTheImage, but the music is generally more energetic and a lot more melodic, while still being dark. Where the vocalist seemed to lack confidence on LoseTheImage, the vocals on this album are much more pronounced. Who would have thought britpop-esque guitars would work so well with EBM? Highly recommended!

I have been after this cd for over a year and finally found it for a reasonable price through the cd baby guys. It's energetic, powerful and has personality. The kind of sounds intelligent djs seek. It has my approval.
