Metallica hardcore band CAPRA have released a video for “Torture Ship” via Metal Injection. The song is from their self-titled EP which will be released on May 22nd.

Guitarist Tyler Harper commented “We’re beyond excited to finally release our video for “Torture Ship” with everyone! The video was filmed in a spider infested warehouse by our good friend and visual sorcerer, Jai Benoit (who also recorded, mixed, and mastered the track). There isn’t much of a meaning behind the video other than it being a relatively straightforward glimpse into the energy that we exert during our live performances. The song itself is about perseverance through suffering, and in response, becoming a better version of yourself. We hope you love it as much as we do!”

Violent fun with a vital message – a succinct summary of fresh faces Capra from Lafayette, southern Louisiana. With only two releases under their belt, they’ve already made waves in their immediate surroundings, and it’s clear why. Their metallic hardcore twist is infectious, bursting with creativity and vigor as though they are still riding the high of having already played with Today is the Day, Eyehategod and The Number Twelve Looks Like You.

This second release, self-titled, has two new songs to dig into, and they are impossible to wear out. “Torture Ship” goes straight for the jugular within the opening seconds, with ferocious and hyperactive riffing. The guitars and bass sound like an avalanche – the kind that Every Time I Die thrive on – and the drums punch relentlessly à la classic Converge. They also draw from the fury of the immediate previous generation of hardcore bands, such as Oathbreaker and Gouge Away – taking from very different styles and molding the results into their own unique blend.

The newest weapon to the arsenal can be heard in Crow Lotus’s ferocious vocals. Her lyrics brim with relatable aphorisms, both inspirational and introspective: “Don’t be like the others, don’t die before the grave” is just one example. She delivers her words with such conviction that you feel the vocal chords stretching, as she screams her frustrations regarding drug abuse and domestic violence on “Paper Tongues”. These topics are close to the band’s heart – they frequently play benefit shows in aid of charity, proving that hardcore still has a sense of community and helping each other.

Caprais six-and-a-half minutes of unstoppable force, and the band are on pure fire right now. This ought to whet your appetites, if fun-loving metallic hardcore is up your street.
