The Capricorns ~ Ruder Forms Survive
"Capricorns is an even mix of the dirty biker rock of Orange Goblin and the prog-metal sound of instrumental kings Pelican. It’s complex and intricate, yet still very direct in execution. And like their debut self titled EP, Ruder Forms Survive is primarily instrumental. The band lets the music speak for itself. Compelling stuff for sure."
"Ruder Forms Survive sees Capricorns up the sonic ante whilst still maintaining a deep love for the purity and tradition of The Riff. Capricorns have succeeded in combining the armageddon punk attitude of Amebix with a doomed out Ummagumma-era Pink Floyd propelled by the deepest swing this side of John Bonham."
