Biography

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 sets a powerful base with breakneck speed drum fills and locks down their sound with 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 20 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 but with the skills to stand out above the other bands trying to fit into the niche of popular music today.
