Secure the Shadow
'Secure the Shadow' is the debut album from the electro/industrial band Ctrl. This CD contains 10 tracks of Industrial gothic goodness and the general decay of the soul. Ctrl recorded this album on a shoestring budget in late winter of 1998 in an abandoned 19th century building; a stone throw from one of the largest industrial complexes on the east coast, with no heat. The band was convinced that the building was haunted. This album led to a follow up tour in 1999 with Crocodile Shop and relocation to Austin, Texas. One of the tracks 'Lioc' was chosen by Cleopatra records for their 'Unquiet Grave' CD series, a retrospect of underground artists of the time. Since then, Ctrl has changed their style, but this is the formative first album. What the CD lacks in production is made up for in raw aggression and feeling. There is a limited supply of this original Time Warner pressing with Analog Aether. Ctrl followed this album up with the 2001 release of 'is burning...'(also available CD Baby). In 2001 members of Ctrl formed the electo-pop group the Low Technicians (also available on CD Baby). All Other CTRL releases are currently available through CDBABY: Is Burning...-2001 Lose The Image-2004 Loaded Weapons and Darkened Days-2006 Lost in Static-Single-2008.
