Madison, Wisconsin’s Bereft began in the summer of 2011 in as an idea formulated by guitarist/vocalist Zach Johnson, and guitarist Alex Linden. The two wanted to start a project that encompassed their views on religion, politics, social injustice, and the human condition. Drawing from elements of black metal, post-metal, doom, and other forms of ambient music; they released their first demo in November of 2013. Rounding out the lineup with Neil Weiss, and Cade Gentry, Bereft plans on playing regionally and recording their first album in the winter of 2014, which will be available on vinyl in the spring of the same year.
We live in two worlds, visible, invisible. Captive's Seth, Michael, Steven, and Josh look to weave these worlds together with melodic portraits of life and faith. Admitting Skillet, Switchfoot and Red influences, Captive uses a driving rock sound to debut their first EP "Only Human."
Worlds collide in a regret filled cover "Young Rich Man." Dizzying layered guitar riffs portray the confusion of a man sure and not so sure he made the right decision. Clean vocal lines and pure harmonies build to an appropriate musical reprise. The invisible world triumphs over a world of doubt in pop ballad "Flowers." Lyrical imagery and percussion
accompaniment tell of Gods always present and quiet love.
"Only Human's" music lyric synergy drives home a single message - we are flawed and we desperately need God's grace. Captive laments our limits and reminds us of God's greatness - we are worlds apart. Captive gets loud about the distance, composing musical scores that draw us into the reach the One who loves us most.
