Hailing from Montreal, QC, Canada, the eerie heavy outfit Kapnas release Kapnas bringing a manifestation of uncanny atmospheres across textural instrumentation and dynamic vocals. The self-titled full length delves into the obscure nature of life and death through contrasting, dissonant and disturbing tracks.
The band comments:
“We explore the groovy yet fuzzy sides of the coin that is life and death on this album. It was great to sit down and just jam out a bit and get ideas that eventually fit into songs and we are really proud of this album.”

Written and recorded as a brainstorming jam session at FoxHole Studios in Montreal, Kapnas delivers a dark take on doom through a minimalist fuzz-fuelled style. The songs on the album explore life and death from both fantasised and ‘real’ perspectives, as well as through rose-tinted glasses and the inevitability of change. From the opener ‘Kapnas’ to ‘Budrum’ (Greek term for basement or subsurface space), the band create an immersive experience in a haze of smoke. Percussion drives the rhythms and distorted guitars bring the heaviness while both clean and harsh vocals unleash a creepy and monstrous edge.
