about

Capracide started in Jacksonville, FL during the summer of 2009 with the hope of putting together a musical group worthy of playing Wacken Open Air within 5 years of inception. Now three years into their musical career, Capracide's first studio release, Theodicy, is primed to raise more than just an eyebrow in the metal community at large.

Produced by Brian Elliott of Mana Recording in St. Petersburg, FL.

Track Name: Death of the First Born
Rapture’s end
Wrath of sacrifice
In exodus
Innocence
Consumed by the sins of genesis
Countless slain
Divine consequence of the enslaved
Reckoning comes
In the death of the first born son
None spared
None spared
In the whims of destruction
Ten plagues convicting the masses
All are indebted in the bones of the first born son
Rapture’s end
Wrath of sacrifice in exodus
Innocence
Consumed by the sins of genesis
Countless slain

Ten plagues
Convicting the masses
Ten plagues
To realize catharsis
Requiring the pharaoh’s first born son
First born son
Track Name: Lineage
Walk through the bloodline
Pulsing through ancestor's veins
Trace the legacy back to the precursor's age

From their ashes we're forged
In a cast iron hearth to bring forth a new era
To follow the footsteps of those
Usurpers of plebeian thrones

Sharpening the blade on a stone
Release impurities of bone
Imbued in firescale - I

Walk through the bloodline
Pulsing through ancestor's veins
Trace the legacy back to the precursor's age

From their ashes we're forged
In a cast iron hearth to bring forth a new era

Sculpted from statue's flesh
Testament to the raw earthen elements
(x2)

Trace the legacy
Back to the precursor's age
To follow the footsteps of those
Usurpers of plebeian thrones

Trace the legacy
Back to the precursor's age
Back to the precursor's age
Track Name: Dichotomy
Moral dissection
The dichotomy of man
Seeking to transcend the vices binding us to mortal land

Purge
Purge

The interest of self -
Altruism holds the weight of the proletariat
Atlas of ethics
Relinquish the inferior
From our broken necks

Moral dissection
The dichotomy of man
Contains Cartesian decay of the will
I think therefore I kill
Track Name: The Pendulum
Dissolve -
The natural order in the motions of the thurible and fog
Seeping through their skulls

The gas collecting in the pews into pustulent tumors

Rise, with the harvesting of innocent lives
Rise, as the masses contort and write

Skin splits over festering wounds
On the hands of the crooked-spined

Assembly of fog corrodes order in the anomolous path of the pendulum

The gas collecting in the pews into pustulent tumors
They rot from their entrails and out of their mouths
To propagate the masses
To stain fog with blood

The pendulum swings out of sync -
When worshiping the warped
The sanctuary rots into the ground
Foundations of oak corrode from inside out

Dissolve
The natural order in the motions of the thurible and fog
Seeping through their skulls
They rot from their entrails and out of their mouths
To propagate the masses
To stain fog with blood
Track Name: Consecration
His blistered hands
Clenching splinters of the working class
Inflamed by humble servitude

Infected by a simple doctrine
For he plows
The drought stricken fields resurrecting the grains for consecration
He is the hollowed shell of a man

Siphoned of blood
For the body of Christ
Dying vicariously
Through the worship of vice

Infected by a simple doctrine
Siphoned of blood he stands forever in the shadow
Of consecration

Siphoned of blood, a hollow shell
Dying vicariously
He stands forever
Track Name: Ascension
He enslaves himself
With a deontic lens
Indentured servant to the whims of Virtue

Perpetuated with the ideal forms
Prophetic misconception
Elevate that which cannot be attained
He seeks ascension to the grave

He enslaves himself
With a deontic lens
Indentured servant to the whims of Virtue

Perpetuated with the ideal forms
Prophetic misconception
Elevate that which cannot be attained
He seeks ascension to the grave
Track Name: Theodicy
Omnipotence
Enter the problem of evil
Wickedness drips from the tongues
Of his own creations

Misinformation
Benevolence
Resounding the hymns of impoverished
Suffering in filth
Created in his image

Omniscience
A world torn asunder by ignorance
Ravaged by falsehood
Omnipotence
Yet wickedness drips from the tongues

Of his own creations
Omniscience
Benevolence
Omnipotence

Why call him god
