Capsule 'No Ghost' 12" LP
Hailing from the same turf as genre buddies Torche, Kylsea and the like, beastly ensemble Capsule might be placed in some overly-familiar territory, but as No Ghost displays, they’re quite capable of creating their own thing. Packed with haunting shiftiness, commanding delivery and generous distortion, these harmonic sludge mongers have clearly found unique footing, concocting bellowing tracks that unite the genre’s penchant for savage riffs with delicate turnarounds and double-time verses. Amplified by episodic bursts tapped from members’ hardcore pasts, Capsule also smash some speed into their towering barnstorming, inciting fiery reactions. From hyperactive onslaughts such as "Graft," "Rylan" and "Neuralize So Numb" through to exploratory tunes pushing their parameters ("World Citizen" and "Isn’t Us"), No Ghost rides an inspiring duality, making Capsule outright peerless.
