Castigate - _Plectrum Loveless Method_
by: Paul Schwarz (3 out of 5)
Castigate have potential, and that potential can be heard lurking on this demo, but it is only potential as yet. Castigate have tapped a good sound and haven't made the mistake of limiting themselves. They have incorporated acoustic instruments, female vocals, sound effects, and a cacophony of bells. This is all well and good, but Castigate's problem seems to be getting the songs structured right: the first song sounds pasted together, and none of the elements really mix satisfactorily. "Where's the potential, then?" you may ask. The potential is on songs like "Sleepless Channels", where they get it right, and in the choice of an outro: the strange sound of a laughing baby.
