Capra - Capra EP

Labels: Self-Released
Formats: Digital
Release Date: 22 May 2020


1. Torture Ship
2. Paper Tongues

It's a new week and my second week of holiday (not that leaving my town is a thing at the moment!). I'm trying to be more productive this week and I'm kickstarting that with some chaotic hardcore from Louisiana, US. Capra is a new name to me but the band initially formed in 2015. In it's current line-up, the band released a two-song EP called Unholy Gallows in June 2018 and recently followed it up with their latest self-titled EP.

Capra takes cues from bands like Every Time I Die and Botch, playing metallic hardcore with added rock ’n’ roll sass. Torture Ship instantly reaches a high gear with a mix of high-energy riffs, percussion and audible yet shouted vocals. The lyrics seem to fit the current global climate very poignantly. Hard hitting and memorable are two words that describe this so far. 

Paper Tongues carries on where Torture Ship left off. Hardcore tempos and thrash influences are joined by subtle technicality to keep you listening, while the weight of genuine emotion is felt though the song. There’s something old-school and simple about the catchiness of ‘Capra’ and the band proves that with these two songs, it’s better to burn out than fade away. Focused, intense and upbeat all in one tight package. Great job!
