Rob Randolph Slab after dark slab of riffage, heavy grooves, and great atmosphere. The vocals are a center piece of this great band, and I wish they were louder! Liz's howls are awesome, but get lost in the mix sometimes. TURN THEM UP! Favorite track: Hexenring.

Crypt Guard "A headbanging assortment of memorable songs, powerful in both variety and cohesion. The record's striking riffs, howling vocals and skillful musicianship creates a captivating sonic journey through the grimly occult realm of heavy metal. 'Deal Thy Fate' has rightfully earned it's place in the top record selection of Crypt Guard's 2018."

about

Bay Area dark metal duo Castle will release their new album, ‘Deal Thy Fate’, on October 19 via Ripple Music. Recorded in Portland, OR with producer Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis), ‘Deal Thy Fate’ is Castle’s fifth full-length LP and follows 2016’s Welcome To The Graveyard, an album described as "doomish, old school, classic heavy metal".

"Our new song, "Can't Escape The Evil", has been around in riff form since the early days of the band but we held off putting it on the last couple records because we wanted to make it the cornerstone of an album," says guitarist Mat Davis. "When we finished writing "Can't Escape the Evil", it quickly became the centerpiece for the new record, 'Deal Thy Fate', and set the tone for the rest of the album."

Written over the course of the past year in Joshua Tree, CA's Mojave Desert, Deal Thy Fate’s features 9 towering tracks woven with tales of folklore, dark Americana, serial killers and cult leaders. Building on the stripped-down sound of its predecessor, Deal Thy Fate sees Castle continue to push the envelope of classic heavy metal, crafting epic and memorable songs that hearken back to fuzzier times while keeping the pedal down on their own hard-edged, modern sound. Guitarist Mat Davis’ penchant for riffs that worm their way into your brain and singer/bassist Liz Blackwell’s haunted melodies soar out of the depths across the album's 36 fist-banging minutes. The album’s striking cover art, inked by Patrick Zoller, reflects the title track’s no compromise, choose-your-own destiny rally cry.
