Staff review by

Good old-fashioned occultism has a well established presence in the contemporary metal scene; sounds from yesteryear revamped in the liveliest of rocking rituals all ably performed by such outstanding acts as the likes of Ghost B.C. and In Solitude. In come the doom inclined Castle to fortify the situation.

  Full stream o' dis:

Kinda funny that the artist has Behemoth linked next to his name. He's not part of the band and has done quite a few artworks for albums for numerous other bands.

  Also what is "heavy doom"? Probably different from "light doom" I suppose...

This band is more like doom heavy metal, if you know what I mean...

Rating: 7 This and The Oath's self-titled are two quite simillar albums, although The Oath is a lot more Rock while this is more Metal. Still quite good.

Rating: 5 Finally listening to this and I'm very disappointed. What HAPPENED to Elizabeth's voice? She sounds nothing like her usual brilliance. It's stuck in her throat; no shimmer whatsoever. The same could be said for the songwriting. This sounds like all the rejected b-sides from previous songwriting sessions. Top it all off with the fuzzy mix, which may have been done intentionally to create a specific atmosphere but failed miserably, and this is one forgettable, throwaway album from a usually good band. Too bad.
