The term 'unique' is often thrown around but in 2010 when Castrovalva's eagerly awaited d but album 'We are A Unit' was unleashed on an unsuspecting world they really did intrigue, confuse, excite and at times disturb listeners.Their huge and harsh bass driven-rock sound coupled with pop overtones, a hip-hop inspired album concept and one of the highest pitched voices in the UK rock scene had writers reaching out all over the place to try and find suitable comparisons. Acts such as Hella, Death from Above 1979, Lightning Bolt, N.W.A, Notorious B.I.G and even Prince were all mentioned in reviews with the likes of NME, Artrocker, Rock A Rolla, Rock Sound and Drowned in Sound heaping praise on the album.Now at this point in 2012 Castrovalva are back with their new album 'You're not in Hell, You're in Purgatory My Friend' set for release through Leeds label Brew (Nine Black Alps, Kong, Blacklisters, Humanfly) on 1st October. As with everything associated with this band the only thing you can ever expect is the unexpected.This time the flirtations with hip-hop are gone and replaced with ideas and themes focused on things closer to home where the subjects of friends, family, fatherhood and broken relationships are all explored. But while lyrically at times this may be a far more serious record the fun and excitement is still very much there with blaring synths at the forefront alongside those crushing but addictive bass-lines.
