If you’re a fan of Seahaven then you will defiantly like this band. Actually, I think if you like most post-hardcore bands that you will like this band too. I know for one that I cannot wait for their full length album to be released. This band has so much potential to do great things.
Captives is a post hardcore band from Eagle Mountain, Utah. “My Eyes Are Open is what radio stations would be playing if they actually had an ear for music. While listening it’s easy to pick up on their rock roots, but the further into a track you get the more layers start to unfold. A lulling baseline might kickstart a song, but by its end emotionally draining vocals are being shouted, eclipsing your first impression and morphing it into an almost transcendental experience of pain and whirling guitar riffs. This album is a deeply emotional journey that will move the listener. It’ll pick you up one moment, make you want to cry the next, and then leave you with a sense of hope for the future.”-Taken from the band’s bandcamp page.
Grace is a lovely song that at first, is slow and gently but then quickly speeds up with still gentle vocals and an intense drumming part.
My favourite part is:
Even though I’m young I still feel old. Like a book that’s written, a story told.
I am responsible for your pain, yes I am the disappointing summer rain.
Yes I am the crossing train, yes I am the one you need to entertain.
So we took the time and we took it back. All deaf from hearing my voice crack.
We shouted out to the heaven above, ” Have I lost your love”.
