METAL | Castle


This is no frills, hit you with a brick, doom-tinged metal. Castle keeps things heavy and simple as a trio — vocalist and bassist Liz Blackwell; guitarist Mat Davis; and drummer Al McCartney — with a focus on powerful, immovable songwriting. Some righteous heavy metal and rock influences drag themselves up from the 70's, but rather than revel in vintage, Castle adds dark, dreaded doom and careens the genre forward, bowling over anyone who gets in the way.

Castle plays with Blizaro and Saints & Winos on Wednesday, November 11, at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $8-$10.;
