Castle Freak are a band from Pennsylvania that plays a mixture of death metal, grindcore and punk and this is a review of their self released 2012 demo.
A very dark and heavy raw death metal sound starts off the ep along with some brutal blast beats along with some high pitched screams and then the music starts adding in more elements of grindcore and the band also has a very old school feeling to their musical sound along with all of the songs being very short in length.
There is a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording along with some powerful sounding bass guitars and the music also brings in the raw energy of punk rock into their musical sound and they also bring in a few seconds of guitar leads on one of the tracks.
Castle Freak creates a very raw and brutal sound with their mixture of old school death metal, grindcore and punk and the music sounds like it could off easily been recorded in the mid 80's or early 90's, the production sounds very raw, old school and heavy while the lyrics cover gore and horror themes.
In my opinion Castle Freak are a very great sounding raw mixture of old school death metal, grindcore and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Toxic Winds" and "Rats In The Morgue". 8 out of 10.
