Castle (5)

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.

Line Up:
Mat Davis - guitar
Al McCartney - drums
Elizabeth Blackwell - vocals, bass
