Many dismiss bands such as Wolves At The Gate just for being open about their religious views. Yes the lyrics are Christian themed, but in a manner that doesn't shove it in your face. In fact, if someone does shove a copy of Captors in your face you better grab it. Everything about this debut is superb. Both vocalists do an excellent job, especially the new guy doing the screams. He is a lot better than the original one from the EP. The cleans are just as good as in the EP if not better. They were really what grabbed my attention about these guys originally. The new drummer also shows his worth and makes his drumming memorable. The guitars really fill in nicely not mindlessly chugging, but doing a good job being aggressive in parts. Those agressive parts are equaled by the soft acoustic work of songs such as "Slaves". After saying Slice the Cake's album was the best, I've changed my mind. Captors is the best album I've heard all year.
