Control Denied was formed in 1996 by the late Death-frontman Chuck Schuldiner. As the ever-progressing Death began to travel in new directions, Chuck decided it was time for a new creative outlet. Only one year earlier, 1995 saw the release of Symbolic. At this point you might be wondering, "why the would Chuck form a new band" It doesn't get any better than Death!" Well unfortunately this isn't the part where I tell you The Fragile Art of Existence blows Death's albums out of the water . Steve Digiorgio gets the first word on Consumed, the album opener. One excellent quality of The Fragile Art of Existence is the production. All instruments are clear, including the lower bass frequency. As I mentioned before, the playing is top-notch.
CONTROL DENIED, the progressive heavy metal brainchild of legendary guitarist Chuck Schuldiner, released its first and only album The Fragile Art of Existence (’99) to massive critical acclaim. The Fragile Ar. s the sound of traditional metal stepping into a new century; an album where the experiences and inspirations of trail-blazing, world-class musicians coalesced under the watchful eye of one of the genre’s master craftsmen. Control Denied was started by Chuck Schuldiner to create a European-style power metal/progressive metal band, mixed with elements of death metal recognizable in his earlier band Death. The band was first started in 1996 as Schuldiner wanted to create a slightly more melodic style than was possible with Death.
This is the only Control Denied ’s album released. To publish it, Schuldiner made a pact with the label: 1 album on Death for 1 album of Control Denied. Chuck who had melted the death and after recording the Sound of Perseverance, recorded in a short time the album with the same lineup of the last Death’s album, except the bassist of Giorgio, (which was already in the first lineup of Control Denied). there are no live version cause the Bad health conditions of Chuck.

Overshadowing Chuck's most recent successes including the career-defining album, Sound of Perseverance, which appears as an eerie specter that copiously reminds us of how our subconscious strangely discerns more than one can even imagine about oneself. This crisis so lessens the impact of a monumental release like Control Denied that it nearly renders it insignificant in light of life's true reality.
