My all time FAVORITE poem, read by the amazing, William Control.

Kristen Oliveras

I absolutely LOVE Edgar Allan Poe. And William Control, he read it so well. Definitely a great buy. I love it!



William Control is unlike any other. His music is fantastic and his words, deep and cold. No other is more perfect to read Poe. This is worth the buy, you must listen!

Perfect Voice


We all know Poe's classic poem, now we get to hear it read by a more than worthy individual: William Control. Poe is a huge inspiration to this great artist. If you are a fan of Poe or Mr. Control please purchase this. Even if you haven't heard of William Control this is your chance to shake hands with one of the greatest artists the world has ever known. He has the PERFECT voice for this and its WELL WORTH the price. Enjoy

About William Control

William Control is the darkwave solo venture of Seattle musician William Francis, who helmed the popular emo-goth band Aiden from their 2003 formation to their breakup in 2016. Initially launched as a conceptual side project in 2008, Francis soon began to use the William Control moniker on a full-time basis, further developing his enigmatic horror punk persona over a series of albums that pulled from electronic, punk, goth, and industrial. Beginning with his conceptual 2008 debut, Hate Culture, Control fostered his dark image with subsequent albums like 2010's Noir, 2012's Silentium Amoris, and 2014's The Neuromancer. Adding to his diversity were a pair of acoustic albums titled Skeleton Key and Skeleton Key 2 as well as a remix album and two live releases. In 2016, he launched his ambitious fifth album, Revelations, a concept album split into four EPs, each named after one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (The Pale, The Black, The Red, The White). The first Revelations EP, The Pale, arrived in October 2016, followed four months later by The Black. ~ Timothy Monger
