Bay Area metallers Castle have posted a new track titled “Down in the Cauldron Bog”, taken from their soon-to-be-released album, Welcome To The Graveyard, out on July 12.

Guitarist/vocalist Mat Davis commented the origins of the track: “Down in the Cauldron Bog was the first song we wrote for the new album. I got the melody for the song in my head while we were touring in Europe last spring – the idea for the lyrics came from a book I was reading about the Bog People of Northern Europe and the sound seem to come out of the landscape where we were at the time. The song helped set the tone for the rest of the album with its theme of burial and transformation set to a dark rock vibe.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
