Castevet biography
CASTEVET is an experimental post-hardcore/black metal band from New York, USA. Andrew HOCK (vocals/guitar, ex-BIOLICH, ex-ENHARHE) and Ian Jacyszyn (drums, COPREMESIS, ex-ASH AND ELM, ex-PILLORY) founded the band in the winter of 2006, whilst attending college in Boston. Bassist Dan OLIVENCIA joined the band in the same year to form a trio and they completed their debut 7" "Stones and Salts" in February 2008, but its release was delayed due to financial issues. In March 2008 came the departure of OLIVENCIA due to personal differences, which led to the band deferring live shows and concentrating on new material. Finally, the 7" EP was released in March 2009 on Paragon Records, limited to 300 copies, while a month earlier, Joshua SCOTT (ANODYNE, DEFEATIST) had taken up the bass guitar duties. "Mounds of Ash", their debut full-length album was released in May 2010 on Profound Lore records, including a re-recording of the track "Stones", which originally appeared in the 7". The rest of the year saw the band focusing on new material for a new album and upcoming live shows.

The band claims, musically, a strong black metal foundation and, lyrically, a tendency to escapism, surrealism and matters about existence. Their sound can be described as both extreme/complex and atmospheric.
