Thrash-inspired Doom Metaller’s CASTLE released their second album “Blacklands” on September 11th on their new North American label PROSTHETIC RECORDS.
“Blacklands” – which was produced by Billy Anderson (Cathedral, Sleep, Neurosis) – was described by Metal Hammer UK as being “a tough alloy of purest classic metals — doom, thrash, epic and power — charged with arcane mysticism.” The album artwork was done by Russian symbolist painter Denis Forkas Kostromitin. "Blacklands" is nominated for a 2013 Canadian Juno award in the "metal/hard music album of the year" category.
CASTLE were formed in 2009 and released their debut album “In Witch Order” via the German label Van Records (The Devil’s Blood) in the spring of 2011. The album brought light to the newly formed band and gained them the title of Metal Hammer Norway’s album of the year as well as Roadburn Festival’s “Newcomer of the Year". Having just returned from a successful European tour alongside Intronaut in addition to appearances at Roadburn and Desertfest, CASTLE have announced a stretch of shows throughout the western U.S. With support from Demon Lung (Candlelight Records), the trio will make their way to and from the Doom in June festival in Las Vegas, NV on June 1. The band will then continue to tour throughout the summer including supporting Intronaut on select dates of their upcoming U.S. tour alongside label mates SCALE THE SUMMIT.
Additionally, the band have also announced plans for a full North
American tour later this summer. More details and information regarding this tour will be announced in the coming weeks.
