Marcus plays in the band 'Captives'

"The visceral thrill of being throttled by razor-sharp guitars, slapped around the head by thundering drums and screamed at by a man gargling glass." - Rolling Stone Magazine

"Like a champion greyhound exploding from the gate with the fluffy bunny already torn to shreds in its jaws. It's a sound that kicks you in the back of the skull with every drum beat, slices at your eardrums with every guitar lick, and tears at the back of your throat with every shriek - and is so distinctive that they had to give it a name themselves: 'Tasmanian Forest Horror'." - Chanel V

"A groove-train ride of riff that somehow manages to pause long enough to incorporate a horn section within the two minute wrecking ball." - Tonedeaf
