Hey! Listen To Chateau!

Sure, we talk a lot on here about how good New England’s metal and hardcore scene is, but let’s not forget that North Carolina has really been stepping up the quality of its bands over the past several years. Though black metal certainly isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you picture the crop of bands that come out of this area, Raleigh’s Chateau are clearly onto something special here. Though they only have a demo and one EP to their name as of right now, they’re about to release Moons Over the Slaughter, an impressive four-song bludgeoning that’s as evil as it is entertaining.
