Dark Castle at Lit Lounge (more here)
Dark Castle

Dark Castle and The Atlas Moth are now on tour, and BrooklynVegan is proud to present the Brooklyn show they'll be playing at Union Pool on November 17th. More details to come including additional bands to be added to the Brooklyn bill and an ill giveaway!

Two days before that show, one of the most highly anticipated NYC shows of the year happens at Le Poisson Rouge. I'm talking about Shrinebuilder + Rwake + Liturgy (11/15, tix here). And speaking of ill giveaways, one lucky BV reader will receive A PAIR OF TICKETS AND ENTRY TO CHECK OUT THE BANDS DURING SOUNDCHECK. Full details on how to enter are at the bottom of this post.

The Atlas Moth's debut LP marries the best of post-hardcore stomp, ambient, and metalgaze and is out NOW. Pick up A Glorified Piece of Blue Sky via their label, Candlelight Records. Recommended, especially if you dug the Prey For Tides EP and/or like Rosetta, Buried Inside, Jesu, or Isis.

Dark Castle released their debut LP, Spirited Migration, on At A Loss Records. Download the first track, "Awake In Sleep", above. The band played NYC in September at Lit Lounge along with the always awesome Malkuth, jaw-dropping duo known as The Body, and local duo Orphan. Pics from that show are here. Malkuth and Liturgy are scheduled to play at Krallice's album release party at Union Pool on 11/13, and to play with Mt. Eerie at Market Hotel on Halloween.

unrelated, but bitchfork just posted a Jesu review in which the genius scribe said "... [Broadrick] massage your pleasure centers with neo-shoegaze in Godflesh"

Godflesh was neo-shoegaze. Can we all stop reading them now?

Pitchfork SUCKS. It shows how biased they are against metal when they give an album a 8.5 (Converge) but neither a recommended or a best new music.
