1 - CASTLE - BLACKLANDS - (LP) 
SOULFOOD


Noble sleeve with hotfoil embossing, printed innerleeves with lyrics, 180g black wax. 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.

2 - CASTLE - SECOND COMING/LABYRINTH OF DEATH - (7") 
VAN RECORDS


Black virgin wax, printed innersleeves, limited to 500 copies. Castle often refer to themselves as witch thrash in interviews, the explanation being quite simple: "there's a definite thrash element to our music even when were playing at slower tempos. It's a different sound, a little more complex maybe than your average doom or heavy metal band; and our lyrics do tend to dwell on themes of the occult. And," Mat adds, "inspired by Tony Iommi, all but three Castle songs are in C# tuning."
