Comet Control opened for Black Mountain at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern on July 18. After seeing them at NXNE, they were at least as big a draw for me as Black Mountain themselves. Comet Control impressed me greatly and I wanted to see how they hit me the second time around.
And what did I think? If anything, I liked them better this time. Partially, I was more familiar with the tunes. I also knew what to expect and my anticipation was high. I love this band's sound, including the grimy bass coming off the stage, the guitar sounds and intense jams, the mad scientist keyboard player, and the powerful drums holding it all together.
Their set-closing tune "Blast Magic"
New tune "Axid Rain"
