CAPRA aren’t usually the type of band that we feature on the blog. As they play an aggressive blend of of Hardcore Punk, Rock and Roll with Screamo tendencies. However CAPRA do have a former member of The Midnight Ghost Train within their ranks. So I’ve decided to give their latest EP – Unholy Gallows – a chance.

And I was pleasantly surprised by it harsh rock and roll vibes and fast-paced melodic riffs. This reminds me of Kvelertak in many places. Especially how CAPRA blend harsh vocals and atmospheres with a modern progressive sound. The EP can be very adventurous at times especially on the second track – Hot Lips.

CAPRA do add heavy sludgy guitars on certain parts of the EP. I need to hear more from this band. Hopefully CAPRA will release something more substantial in the future such as a longer EP or mini-album. As the two EP’s they’ve released so far whilst superbly entertaining, I need to see if the band can generate the same violent excitement on a longer release.

Until then Unholy Gallows is a superb sounding EP with enough thrills and spills to keep you wholly entertained.
