CASTLE Debut New Music Video

Doom metal trio CASTLE have completed their newest music video for “Storm Below the Mountain,” a track from their new album “Blacklands.” The video, which can be viewed below, was filmed in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada earlier this year. The band stated, “We had the opportunity to shoot the video in a very old cellar, complete with bats flying overhead. It was the perfect atmosphere, and thankfully, nobody needed shots afterwards.”

Storm Below the Mountain,” which was directed by Jaan Slimberg of Pistoltrixx, features lead vocals from guitarist Mat Davis rather than bassist Elizabeth Blackwell, who sings the majority of CASTLE’s songs. Davis comments, “There are many sides to Castle; this is just another one of them.”

“Blacklands”, which was produced by Billy Anderson (Cathedral, Sleep, Eyehategod, Neurosis), has been praised by Outburn for its “catchy” and “memorable” music, while Exclaim! have likewise praised its “irresistible hooks” as well as the album’s “strange, complex atmospheres.” You can download “Blacklands” from iTunes for only $6.

CASTLE just kicked off an extensive North American tour with fellow female-fronted doom metallers Witch Mountain. Dates can be found below.
