Posted by jillettinger on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 1:06 PM (PST)

Florida experimental doom/sludge metal duo, Dark Castle, have completed work on their new album “Surrender To All Life Beyond Form.”

Formed by guitarist/vocalist Stevie Floyd and drummer Rob Shaffer in 2006, Dark Castle has been creating a heavy and monstrous wall of sound through minimalistic requirements at their disposal.
