Short Bio: Castle Rat is a Fantasy Doom Metal band hailing from Brooklyn, NY, led by The Rat Queen (guitar/vocals). On her mission to expand and defend ‘The Realm’ from those who seek to destroy it, The Rat Queen is joined by The Count (lead guitar), The Plague Doctor (bass), and The Druid (drums). Together they face the relentless wrath of their arch nemesis: Death Herself – The Rat Reaperess. The Realm of Castle Rat exists for those who crave swords & sorcery; Stoner & Doom; Frazetta & Sabbath; battle-babes & beasts.
