CASTLE live @ The Abyss 20th of September

The Abyss
Get directions

Heavy metal/doom trio CASTLE have completed recording their new album “Evil Remains” and are proud to announce they have signed on with Hammerheart Records, for a worldwide release of the new album in September 2024, to coincide with a 22 date European tour – their first since 2018!

CASTLE was forged in San Francisco in 2009 by guitarist Mat Davis and bassist/vocalist Liz Blackwell and released its debut full-length, In Witch Order, via Germany’s Ván Records in 2011. Since the release of its first album, CASTLE has maintained a relentless tour schedule, performing close to 700 shows worldwide alongside the likes of The Sword, Conan, Intronaut, The Skull and Pentagram, among many others. The group has appeared at numerous underground music festivals including Roadburn, the London and Berlin Desertfests and recently completed its first-ever tour of Japan.

Further details regarding the upcoming album and additional North American tour dates will be announced in the coming months.

“If there’s one thing you should know about Castle, it’s that they are perhaps the hardest working occult/doom rock band in the world. Of course, when they’re not being unmatched road dogs, they’re recording albums.”


“…irrepressible combination of ’70’s doom, NWOBHM, musty-yet-in-your-face production courtesy of famed Neurosis/Melvins producer Billy Anderson, and the smoky, whiskey-stained vocals of Liz Blackwell”


“This is fantastic heavy metal of the most traditional kind, forged, I can only assume, in the fires of hell.”


“If you haven’t caught onto CASTLE yet, you’re not taking a thing about your career as a metal fan seriously… Hear this, feel the power and glory and put on the vest!”
