Moment of Silence EP
Capital is a fast paced melodic rock band with a punk/pop sound and technical proficiency. The three members bring power in force through their influences that bring the band into the world of rock music, and put them three steps ahead of most bands currently performing in their genre. The drummer treds the dunk line somewhere between Bill Stevenson & Tony Williams, with breakneck speed and kick drum beats that make the floors jump. The bass player trained under Victor Wooten but fell in love with punk rock music in high school. He brings a powerful groove to the sound of the trio while also bringing punch that drives the rhythms of their music and cuts loose on stage with flying bass solos and wild stage presence. The guitar player was raised with one ear on the radio with Van Halen I blasting through him. Consumed by rock he traveled to the crossroads to sell his soul for guitar chops and to join the likes of Robert Johnson and Jimmy Page as kings of their instruments. It is unclear if he succeeded in selling his soul, but I have yet to see a better guitar player in a rock band in the last 10 years. The two lead vocals allow the band to have a solid sound that avoids pretension and never falls stale. The guitar player sings like Ozzy with the throat of Kurt Cobain and the bass player has a melodic growl often compared to Greg Graffin of Bad Religion. Capital produces a solid mix of rock and punk that fits with the melodic rock/punk out there today and does with three members what most bands out there are trying to accomplish with five. This is Capital.
