Castrofate Seeks Drummer, Bassist and Lead Guitarist For New Lineup

Castrofate is currently seeking a new drummer. Mainman Dan Castro has issued the following update regarding what he is looking for:

"We are now holding auditions for:"

"A DRUMMER in the style of Lars Ulrich/Nick Menza. Must play to click during both rehearsals and shows."

"a LEAD GUITARIST in the style of Kirk Hammett/Tony Iommi. Must have strong rhythm chops and down-picking abilities."

"and a pick-style BASSIST in the style of Jason Newsted/David Ellefson."

"Must be experienced professionals, with past recordings and touring experience. Must be able to work with industry producers. Must be able practice every week. Must be willing and able to tour anywhere in the world. NOT looking for session musicians; we have enough of those at our disposal."

In addition Dan Castro has issued the following studio update:

"Drum tracks for all 10 of the new songs were arranged with drummer Dmitriy Shnaydman in March of 2009; Dmitriy recorded the drum tracks in February 2010, and James Murphy laid down the bass tracks in the same month."

"I have returned to NY for the month while James Murphy takes care of some business, and I will be back down there to finish the guitars and vocals in May."

I can see why you think that. I feel ya too. In the end, I think it's just the beginning since they're about to release a new album done by James Murphy.
