​Since the release of their most recent offering "Welcome To The Graveyard", issued last summer via Ván Records - CASTLE’s massive 120 date world takeover has included tours of the U.S., Europe, Canada and the bands first ever tour of Japan in December. "Welcome To The Graveyard" was captured by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Eyehategod, Ommadon et al) at Type Foundry Studios in Portland, Oregon. En route to their appearance at Shadow Woods Metal Fest they'll be stopping in for a headlining show on their Strange Matter return alongside support from BOOK OF WYRMS, DRUGLORD and EXIT THE BEAST! Plus we've added the liquid light show of LEO PRESCOTT!!

Taking the name Castle from his original concept of building a "Castle of the Mind", guitarist and songwriter Mat Davis has drawn on the heavy sound history of his native San Francisco to write an album that smashes the modern metal mold with thrash velocity, scorching psyched-out riffs, thunderous drumming and literate occultism on this 11-song, 44-minute debut.
Adding to the atmosphere of majestic doom, Elizabeth Blackwell's haunted, full-blooded vocals are electric witch hymns of death and madness that adapt lyrics from luminaries such as William Blake and Charles Baudelaire.

Rounding out the power trio, drummer Al McCartney balances bombastic and technical with brutal precision.
