Hailing from Brooklyn NY, the trio that comprise of CASTEVET have already gained quite a reputation within the underground scene within the NY area. Last year, the band released their “Stones/Salts” 7”, their only release prior to their debut album “Mounds Of Ash”, and just by said release alone, alongside the band getting as active as they can on the local live circuit, they have created quite a reputation that immediately put them alongside the likes of such bands in their local scene as KRALLICE, TOMBS, BLACK ANVIL, and LITURGY. With their debut album “Mounds Of Ash”, CASTEVET will surely rise to prominence nonetheless as one of the most potent bands within the extreme metal underground from the NY scene. Nonetheless, the “Stones/Salts” 7” sold out immediately and showcased the band’s virulent mix of vicious post/progressive hardcore and dissonant black metal. Their sound was referenced in a way where it would be compared to a mix of the virulent hardcore vibes of CONVERGE, and the dissonant progressive avant-black metal histrionics of DEATHSPELL OMEGA all filtered through a lens procured by VOIVOD. While the “Stones/Salts” EP gave people a glimpse of what the beast known as CASTEVET had to offer, it is with “Mounds Of Ash” (summoned within the Thousand Caves Studios by Colin Marston of Krallice, in which Marston himself hails “Mounds Of Ash” as one of the best sounding albums he’s ever recorded) that will truly define this band as its own enigma. By combining the progressive genius of the aforementioned VOIVOD, along with the post-hardcore of such bands as ANODYNE (a band in which CASTEVET bassist J. Scott was once a part of), UNSANE, RORSCHACH, and the avant-black metal dissonance of bands such as VED BUENS ENDE, and DEATHSPELL OMEGA, “Mounds Of Ash” is an apocalyptic conjuring through the fog and mire, a sonic journey through utter darkness and a soundtrack to signal the fall of man.
