Boston-based quintet CAPTAIN CUTTHROAT will release its first EP in the fall. According to a press release, "the record features six songs, each with a distinct vibe, combining syncopated thrash elements of SYSTEM OF A DOWN, experimentation of Mike Patton, spooky undertones of early PINK FLOYD, and a rockin' swing time rhythm of THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA." The album was recorded at Mad Oak Studios in Allston, MA by engineer Kris Smith, and was mixed by Neil Kernon, who has produced, recorded and mixed a wide variety of artists, including NILE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, PETER GABRIEL, QUEENSRŸCHE and DARYL HALL AND JOHN OATES.
CAPTAIN CUTTHROAT has been performing for over six years, and is said to be one of the area's premier rock n' roll bands. J.C. Lockwood of Gatehouse News has called it "the soundtrack for the ADD generation, music for people with short attention spans, with a never-ending jones for visual and sonic distractions. Like the 10-minute opus 'The Horror Song', one of the band's sure-fire crowd-pleasers. It's a series of weird stories tied together by cascading musical mood swings, ranging from near classical influences to speed metal."
Since its debut, CAPTAIN CUTTHROAT has kept busy winning the 2006 U.S. Emergenza Finals, traveling to Germany to play the Taubertal Festival, and playing shows with bands such as TURBONEGRO, MISFITS, TUBRING and LIFE OF AGONY.
