Castle Posts New Music Video For "Storm Below The Mountain"

Doom metal trio Castle has completed newest music video “Storm Below the Mountain,” a track from latest album “Blacklands.” The video, available below, was filmed in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada earlier this year.

The band stated, “We had the opportunity to shoot the video in a very old cellar, complete with bats flying overhead. It was the perfect atmosphere, and thankfully, nobody needed shots afterwards.”

“Storm Below the Mountain” was directed by Jaan Slimberg of Pistoltrixx, and features lead vocals from guitarist Mat Davis rather than bassist Elizabeth Blackwell, who sings the majority of Castle’s songs. Davis comments, “There are many sides to Castle; this is just another one of them.” The previous music video for “Blacklands” is also available at this location.

Castle has the following upcoming tour dates with Witch Mountain:

Scott Kelly Checks In From Solo U.S. Tour

Having his American acoustic tour alongside Bob Wayne and Jay Munly in December, and just recently a trek through Australia and New Zealand alongside John Baizely, Scott Kelly’s newest U.S. solo tour with support from Eugene S. Robinson (Oxbow) is now underway. The following press release was issued about the tour:

“If there was ever a certainty of damage done, dealt and overcome, the SCOTT KELLY solo tour is an object lesson in the character building parameters of life’s grinding parade. Bringing equal parts sonorous weight and lambent beauty, the man, the guitar and the songs from a songbook heavy with NEUROSIS and SHRINEBUILDER antecedents, KELLY’s current tour sees him debuting unreleased songs from his upcoming solo record, as well as his previous solo LPs for a live show experience burnished by the acoustic and not diminished by it.”

“There’s fear everywhere,” Kelly says. “In moments both quiet and small. And there’s surviving them all. And we are.”

Eugene S. Robinson supports with a brand of storytelling that draws from his previously published work, as well as stories from the beast that has driven OXBOW for the past two decades.

Remaining dates on the tour are as follows:

2/21/2012 Record Bar – Kansas City, MO
2/22/2012 Fubar Lounge – St Louis, MO
2/23/2012 MOTR Pub – Cincinnati, OH
2/24/2012 Intersection Front Bar – Grand Rapids, MI
2/25/2012 Lager House- Detroit, MI
2/26/2012 Rockstar Pro Arena – Dayton, OH
2/28/2012 Now That’s Class – Cleveland, OH
2/29/2012 Ace Of Cups – Columbus, OH
3/01/2012 Mohawk Place – Buffalo, NY
3/02/2012 Cafe Nine – New Haven, CT
3/03/2012 Church of Boston – Boston, MA w/ Marc Pinansky
3/04/2012 Knitting Factory – Brooklyn, NY
3/06/2012 Johnny Brenda’s – Philadelphia, PA
3/07/2012 Golden West Cafe – Baltimore, MD
3/08/2012 Strange Matter – Richmond, VA
3/09/2012 The Pinhook – Durham, NC
3/10/2012 Snug Harbor – Charlotte, NC

More news on Scott Kelly’s upcoming solo LP will be released in the weeks ahead.
