I first heard of them after reading the reviews for Death Control on Aquarius Records and loved them ever since. If P4K or whoever started gushing over it like they do for other groups, there would definitely more than a million scrobs.
I couldn't send anything out there without Chris's permission. Keep in contact with me. I'd love more people to hear the full catalog of gems he has. Sounds lik Bryan will be releasing more, and perhaps this could open the door for some of the earlier stuff, which is melodically similar but generally used live drums, often complex, often completely performed by Chris.
"As for Night Control, more will be coming. We won't reissue the 4X CD-r, but lots of those songs plus new ones will appear on future NC albums in the near future. " From Bryan at Kill Shaman. Wohoo! I specifically like that he says "in the near future". :-) Death Control is some of the best pop (although it's more than just pop, really) from the last years in my opinion.
@exileon15th: Is there by any chance any way to get some of those songs? I've already sent a mail to Kill Shaman and asked if they've got any plans on reissuing some of his other tracks/albums (those he did as "Crystal Shards")...
Chris Smith has a catalog of songs equally as great, and in this vein, probably in the 100s that he has been sending just to friends for the last 6+ years. His music comes from the heart. It's all the real deal. I've always thought of his music as like the early days of March when spring is just around the corner.
