CTRL: Loaded Weapons and Darkened Days

If you're into the likes of Orbital, Alpha Conspiracy and Front Line Assembly and don't already know about CTRL, shame on you (*wags finger*). Any admirer of 80's synth pop, digital or industrial gothic should also be a fan.

This Austin based band has a very devoted and solid following that has steadily grown since the early 90's. For me, CTRL serves as the quintessential soundtrack to my early college years as it takes me back to my "eyeliner, corset and boots" years. This was back when dressing to the nines to go clubbing was a regular occurrence. The tunes are catchy and very dance-able. Definitely the type of music you'd want to play LOUD.

Be sure to read the detailed biography on their myspace which gives incredible insight on the evolution, recording process and artistic vision of the band.

Listen to:
"Grand Experiment"
"Going Going Going" (promo track from earlier album Lose the Image)

Hey, the mp3 links aren't working! Does this have to do with so many people downloading Nine Inch Nails from you?

Yep. You'll have to wait until March for Media Max to reset it's download counter. Just go to CTRL's myspace to listen to their tracks!
