In 2009 the bands frontman and composer Sauli Vuoti got bored with the electronic elements and the band recorded their sophomore album with the title “Only Truth Remains”. Stylistically the album was more rock oriented with crispy guitars, a bit in the American tradition but tightly hanging onto the catchy Scandinavian elements. As Kinetik Control’s urge has always been to develop, the band enlisted the legendary Hanoi Rocks’ vocalist Michael Monroe as a guest musician and a consult for the recordings. The album was mixed at Fried studios in Helsinki by Jyrki Tuovinen (Lordi) and the album was mastered by Svante Forsback (Rammstein). “Only Truth Remains” was released in November 2010 and entered the official Finnish album chart on position 47 despite having to compete with several Christmas albums by the time of its release. The album also debuted on 1st position on Finnish music chart, which is compiled only from music and record store sales. The album’s first single “In This Life” had earlier debuted on 4th position on the Finnish digital chart. The 2nd single “All Fours” was offered as a free download on Finland’s largest TV-channel MTV3’s website and received huge radio success. The band also filmed a music video of that particular song.

Even though Kinetik Control was formed in Oulu, in the north of Finland during the year 2000, nowadays the band resides in its capital, Helsinki. Since the beginning, Kinetik Control has boldly combined rock, pop and metal to form a delicious cocktail of rock music completely in their own terms. Their first release, “Enslaving The Audio” EP, was mixed at the legendary Finnvox studios by Mikko Karmila (Nightwish, Children Of Bodom, Sonata Arctica). The EP was a big success and the band was honored as the newcomer of the month by the British rock magazine Metal Hammer.
In 2008, Kinetik Control recorded their first full-length album “Lack Of Divine Inspiration” once again at Finnvox studios and it was released by Bonnier Amigo Music. All the four singles released in Finland achieved mainstream success and high chart entries, beating high profile artists such as Madonna, Coldplay and Beyoncé to name a few. Kinetik Control supported the album with an extensive tour in Finland with close to 30 performances, including shows together with Poisonblack and Pain (SWE).
