The Zonules of Zinn E.P (2009)
Mens Rea E.P (2008)



Time has unfolded a calling to four musicians who retreat to the walls of a garage studio to console their ever-growing aggravations with the coined ‘real’ world.

CAPTIVE is a four-piece progressive rock band from Oshawa, Ontario Canada. The self-produced ‘Mens Rea’ E.P. released shortly after the band’s conception in late 2007 features 5 eclectic songs aiding to stir a buzz & placing the band’s moving sound firmly into the local circuit. Providing infectious grooves draped with insightful lyricism & bringing an innovatively dynamic character to a live setting, CAPTIVE has its sights aimed on truth.

Oshawa, like many motor-cities, homes a population distinctly separated based on economic status creating a clash of dense poverty & aristocracy in large segments of the city. The inevitable pitfalls of living within a monetary system perpetuated by greed are apparent under such conditions and have been direct inspiration for songs like ‘Beggars & Choosers’ & ‘Dreams’. Motivated by a collective passion for music & desire for change, these four young Oshawa, ON natives are entering this system set on bringing about awareness & a greater understanding for futures to come.

“We aren’t trying to change anybody’s views or beliefs. We can only hope to present a sense of enlightenment that will promote questioning the reality of nature”

Offering more than simple ‘redemption songs’, CAPTIVE strives to capture the living trials of captivity in western civilization & the prevailing mind-altering afflictions of today.

Set your captives free.
