CAPA combines elements of black metal, post-metal, progressive, shoegaze and ambient music. CAPA focuses conceptually on the topics of nihilism, greed, surrealism, and the relationship between society and the natural world. Each album is meticulously crafted to tell a story through music, artwork, poems, and journal entries that span the band's discography. The Philadelphia-based collective utilizes a wide array of instruments that include piano, melodica, glockenspiel, banjo, singing bowl, and didgeridoo. The conclusion to the trilogy is set to be released late 2012.
