CASTRATi

2016.07.09

So, we released a new track recently, “Box birds”, along with three live tracks that were recorded in 2010 with the full band, one of the last gig before our keyboard player left. Listen to it on Bandcamp or scroll down and play it from here. This single will give you an idea of what the album sounds like.

And our album is almost ready! It's entitled “Little Death Machine” and features 14 tracks and 3 instrumentals. It'll be released later this year. Not sure yet where and how, but we're working on that… Have a look at the track list and artwork here.

Thanks to everyone who ever supported us, invited us to play, bought our merch or came to our gigs. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

    • Tess Tïckles
    • Influences : Stoner / Metal / Baroque / 70's Rock / Down / Pantera / Bach / Led Zeppelin / Berlioz / Léo Ferré After learning the classical piano for years, he became the singer of the band Orange Gaze in 2003. He's been spending most of his time in theaters acting, and therefore wrote some theatrical soundtracks with Önuk. He then joined CASTRATi during spring 2008 as a keyboard player. Now an established comedian, he brings to CASTRATi an amazing and totally crazy energy.

    • Önuk
    • Influences : Death rock / Punk / 70's Jazz / Swann Danger / Skeletal Family / Ramones / Rhoda Scott / J.J. Johnson He started music during his teenage years (trombone) and, after jazz music, began to explore experimental and improvised music when he was around 18. He then discovered death rock music with a childish amusement. He was fascinated by the extremely wide and different expressions of the vocals and faces of the singers of the post punk movement. He joined up Alëks in 2007 to form CASTRATi.

    • Influences : Batcave / Post punk / Classical / Neo folk / Virgin Prunes / The Legendary Pink Dots / Bach / Christian Death / Cinema Strange / Death in June After studying classical music (violin and guitar), he got interested in dark and indie music when he was a teenager. He then totally fell in love with death rock music. In 2007, he met Önuk. This was the beginning of the project he had always wished for: CASTRATi. His innocence and his limitless taste for craziness brought to CASTRATi a dark yet cheerful and childish atmosphere.

    • Influences : Post Punk / Death rock / Christian Death / The Cure / Mephisto Waltz / 45 Grave / Les Musclés et Régine, what else? He started playing the guitar when he was a teenager, discovering punk after listening to death metal, then death rock from punk. He has spent an incalculable amount of time in music stores and venues in Europe for almost ten years. He met Önuk in June 2007 at a Swann Danger gig. Being such a perfectionist, and thanks his very well trained musical ear, allowed CASTRATi to evolve to a much more personal and unique sound.

    • Influences : Death rock / Metal / Sludge / Electronica / Skinny Puppy / Christian Death / Neurosis / Converge / The Dillinger Escape Plan / Cinema Strange He first discovered music on computers and finally joined a post punk band around 2002, his first musical project. Thanks to his wide influences, he played in diverse styles like metal, rock, punk and electronic music, thus making his drum playing personal and rich. Most of all, he likes to play live!
