Be no sheep, hiding in your own skin. I can tell a stranger dwells within. These walls grow numb for a moments bliss, false truths that only you will miss. While you waste away, I won’t waste away.
I am the shepard leading your lost way. I am the Charon who’s debt you must pay. Black and blue I see right through your weightless words. Use me now, take your bow, cast me with lepers.
When you wake in your cold damp sweat, writhing in all of your regret I know you’ll turn for comforting, to your poison bedside remedy. While you waste away, I won’t waste.
I am the shepard leading your lost way. I am the Charon who’s debt you must pay, black and blue I see right through your weightless words. Use me now, take your bow, cast me with lepers.
I am an imposter, she is all I can offer. You lay claim to rule it all, but I will rise and you will fall.
I am responsible for your pain, yes I am the disappointing summer rain.
Captives are back and with more crushing heaviness than ever. Afterimage, Captives’ second release, features powerfully atmospheric guitar work, intoxicating melodic harmonies, brooding drum beats, and crushingly emotional vocals from dual-vocalists Jeffery Mudgett and Trevor Bookout.
These five new tracks showcase the growth and evolution Captives has accomplished as a promising band on the rise and further builds the theme established on their 2012 EP, My Eyes Are Open. An afterimage is a visual image retained after looking at something vivid, an image you can still see after you’ve turned away or closed your eyes. Even after minutes the illusion will remain if the image was distinct enough. Afterimage represents still seeing and feeling those things that are no longer with us, when only an impression remains.
Afterimage is set to release on August 20, 2013 via Reveille Records. Pre-orders will be up for the vinyl version of the release on the same day.
