Dark Castle - Surrender To All Life Beyond Form


Artwork by Stevie Floyd

Dark Castle's Surrender To All Life Beyond Form is a dense and atmospheric take on doom. There's also industrial elements, drone metal and unorthodox scales - all covered in a thick layer of crud and fuzz.

Here are reviews from Metal Review and The Obelisk. A common thread in the reviews is that the album is a challenge, but like AllMusic writes, after repeated listens it reveals itself to be an astonishingly varied and well-conceived song cycle.
