Album Notes
electro death pop?

"Is Burning..." is the result of two years of recording, editing and various mental breakdowns.
This is the second full length album from Ctrl. Musical styles range from synth pop to electro goth to IDM to hard industrial dance. The influences of Covenant, Aphex Twin, Skinny Puppy, Download and Depeche Mode can all be heard.

After the recording of "Is Burning..." members of Ctrl went on to form the electro-pop band Low Technicians in 2001. In 2003 Ctrl Join Diffusion Records, Home of the synthpop band IRIS.

All Other CTRL releases are currently available through CDBABY:
Secure The Shadow-1998
Lose The Image-2004

Lost in Static-Single-2008


to write a review

the jax

Danceable industrial for every mood
Fully-realized compositions blend the styles of experimental trance and harder industrial. Haunting vocals and meaningful lyrics give extra depth. "Trains" and "Greper", the most mellow downtempo tracks, are simply beautiful. The rest are awesome clubhead floor-shakers. And yes, samples galore!


experimental, the atmospheric & the easily accessable merge
Describing their sound as 'electro death pop' CTRL are an American quartet of Brad Mcallister, Joel Willard, Jason Fenimore & Kusser Smith.This 14 track demo which covers many different areas & styles of modern electronic music.Indeed,many possible labels could be applied to this music but none would totally fit the bill which is a testimony to the band's knack of producing tracks where the experimental, the atmospheric & the easily accessable merge together into one seamless whole.That's not to say that this is a messy hotpotch of disparate styles as there is a sense of cohesion throughout the whole album.

mixed and sequenced perfectly
Everything is mixed and sequenced perfectly. The vocals aren't too dominant or buried in the mix, either. Production for the most part is top notch and sounds very professional. Ctrl has a very Wax Trax-inspired sound and fans of that label's bands will truly dig this album a lot. Ctrl mixes a lot of different styles on is burning... and the diversity of the release is what really captured my attention

Legends Magazine

rich with mood and atmosphere
The songs on Is Burning… are rich with mood and atmosphere, from the album's aggressive dancefloor stompers, like WhiteParticleWandering and IwantToKnowHer to the reflective and melancholy Scot1, and the more experimental tracks like InvyVsKusser. Ctrl pile layers upon layers of sound

Final ManElectro age

Ctrl truly stands on its own
but Ctrl truly stands on its own. The creativity and vibe to reach the ranks of the electro's elite is present and dominates the band's compositions; Ctrl should garner the attention within the genre.
