Castles - Fiction Or Truth? Cover

"'Fiction Or Truth?' showcase the talents of a band who create songs that are intelligent, intriguing, and pack powerful noise-rock punch."

Castles’ second full-length record finds the Anglo-Belgian trio in fine, individualistic form. Recorded with Converge axeman and all-round production guru Kurt Ballou at his GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts, its 10 songs comprise an inventive racket, with ex-Beecher man Edward Godby’s gruff vocals fronting a sound that fans of Big Business will likely lap up. These guys are by no means copycats, though: songs like ‘Long Distance Runner’, the miraculous riff-fest ‘Untame’ and the title track showcase the talents of a band who create songs that are intelligent, intriguing, and pack powerful noise-rock punch.
