Experience the Blinding Heavy Metal Madness of CASTLE RAT ‘Into the Realm’

CASTLE RAT is ravaging the heavy metal world like a horde of barbarians with their new record Into the Realm out now on King Volume Records! Imagine if Jefferson Airplane decided to start a band with Black Sabbath and they were managed by Frank Frazetta — that fantasy world has come to life in Castle Rat! This band brings together the four elements of magickal doom: earth-shattering percussion, a hurricane of riffs, blazing hot vocals, and a tsunami of heavy metal energy—and that’s why it’s one of the top streaming new doom records out right now! Plus they’ve got the intoxicating storytelling and fantastical elements down, to the point that this music sucks you into a world of it’s own from the first second you hit play. I hear they’re beyond sick live, too! Their record release show is tonight in NYC at The Great Frog, so check the flyer below and then break out your battle vest and blow dryer and be there. Right now, immerse yourself in the lore of Castle Rat’s Into the Realm and make sure you pick it up here.
