WHO ARE THEY ?
Castrovalva are an experimental noise rock trio (formerly duo) consisting of Drums, Bass and Vocals based in Leeds, England; “The explosive sound is filled with undeniable groove and a brutal catchiness which will push your senses to the limit …whilst their insanely immersive live shows are a spectacle to behold with every member pouring their blood and sweat (literally) into every gig.”
Already making there mark in the Leeds music scene and supporting bands such as MONOTONIX, HEALTH & AN ALBATROSS Castrovalva are already turning heads whilst touring the UK tour in april and Europe throughout May.
A Satan cocktail of musical elements – ARTROCKER MAGAZINE – Album of the Month April 2010 5/5
Madness takes many form but not so alluring as alluring as a trio of ferel noise bastards who enjoy nothing more than getting up in people’s grills. You’ll be rewarded with fun and lots of it – NME
“We Are a Unit is a breathtaking listen. But it’s this brevity and diversity that allows Castrovalva to shine where other fearsome live acts have failed – to make a record that does their performances justice.” – 8/10 Drowened in Sound
“Weirdo rock from a leeds trio taking a cue or two from fellow townsfolk That Fucking Tank but twisting a formula of exuberant brutality with neat proggy-toned sidesteps, this mini album is a headfuck like few others on these pages, impressively subversive.” – Rocksound Magazine
“You can imagine their live shows to be a tangle of noise and righteous poses” – Rock a Rolla Magazine
