Between The Buried and Me
Bury Your Dead
In 2001, Castillo and guitarist Brendan "Slim" MacDonald formed a side-project which would later evolve into Bury Your Dead. Throughout numerous line-up changes Castillo was ever-present in the band as they released five albums via Victory Records before Castillo departed amicably in December 2010 to join Crossfade.
Throughout 2010, Crossfade was actively seeking a drummer following the departure of James Branham in 2007, culminating in the band holding auditions in lead-singer Ed Sloan's garage. Castillo would make the long journey to West Columbia, South Carolina and successfully audition, becoming a full-time member of the line-up and going on to perform frequently alongside them throughout 2011. Their June 21, 2011 release We All Bleed was recorded in 2009/10 with Evanescence's Will Hunt performing drums and percussion on the album.
On January 8, 2012, Lambgoat revealed that Castillo had joined Emmure for the recording of their fifth full-length album, Slave to the Game. Later, Castillo confirmed that he would be leaving Crossfade to join Emmure full-time.
