THE HOUSE OF CAPRICORN
IN THE DEVIL’S DAYS
SWAMPS OF ONE TREE HILL

Slow-churned stoner doom quartet The House of Capricorn go slow and aim low on their 10-track offering IN THE DEVIL’S DAYS. This New Zealand troupe’s sunshine stoner shuffle (“Illumination in Omega”) to suffocating doom (“Horns”) switch-ups are gracefully handled and feature a slew of 90’s metal influence that manages to cram Electric Wizard, Danzig, Cathedral, Type O Negative, Melvins and Clutch. Guided by attentiveness for tempos, The House of Capricorn balances dread and despair to proper levels with versatile and well-versed musicianship skillfully surveying the dark and heavy atmospheres.
