Control the Chaos Signs On For "The Back Room" Soundtrack

Control the Chaos, who recently took the prize for "Best Teen Band" at the 2010 Vegas Rocks! Magazine Awards show, has signed on to score the soundtrack for an independent horror film entitled "The Back Room" by independent film company 3DT Productions.

Enter Tim Stover, a local indie film director getting ready to release the company’s first feature "The Back Room”- a grindhouse horror film shot in and around Las Vegas, NV. “I wanted to pull together more local talent to put in this movie and given the subject matter, we were intent on assembling a great heavy metal soundtrack for the film,” states Stover.

“The film enters the mind of a serial killer. The rest, we’ll leave to online teaser trailers and the movie’s official release date for Halloween 2010. We’d say more, but we’d have to kill ya...”

“Heavy metal isn’t the soundtrack for relaxation. It’s the score for intensity! And horror and metal music go together like Halloween and candy,” says Ed Fassio, CEO of Itchy Metal Entertainment and manager of the Vegas metal band: Control the Chaos.

“We’re always exploring opportunities to further grow our international presence, both for the band and Itchy Metal,” states Fassio. “When Tim approached us with the idea of having CTC’s music included in the film, we reviewed the project, discussed distribution and came to a licensing agreement (with 3DT) to use their songs for the movie. In addition, the band is preparing to release their new horror-themed single 'Zombie,' so the timing is perfect.”

For initial release, "The Back Room" will be distributed via retail channels by Canadian-based Black Flag Pictures and made digitally available via Netflix Canada.
