Following the release of their latest album Under Siege, which features just under 40 minutes of “shredding riffs and solos” (Soundcrave), CASTLE have unveiled the new music video for the haunting single Be My Ghost, which you can view on Subba Cultcha HERE or directly below.
Directed by longtime collaborator Jaan Silmberg (Super Duper Alice Cooper), the band commented on the video stating; “‘Be My Ghost’ is about the eternal struggle between the forces of light and dark and is another Castle song that is heavily indebted conceptually and visually to William Blake. We wanted to bring both those elements into the video and Jaan with his animation background was able to bring some of those Blake visuals that inspired the song to life“.
CASTLE‘s 2012 Juno-nominated release Blacklands — ”a tough alloy of purest classic metals – doom, thrash, epic and power”(Metal Hammer) — has since seen the band appear extensively throughout the US and Europe alongside acts including The Sword, Intronaut, Blood Ceremony, Conan and more. Currently the trio are out on a headlining trek throughout the US, full dates are listed below.
