As a symbol of both good and evil, the owl is prevalent in many cultures and contexts. In Michael Ruiz-Unger’s video for the song “Gown of Frost”, by Miami’s hardcore heroes Capsule, it’s safe to say the giant animatronic bird is one bad hooter. Ruiz-Unger, who also directed Lil Dagger’s “Dada Brown” video, features Capsule playing a midnight set amid a smoky field, while a recently revived woman in white aims to eliminate the Sauron-like owl with a crystal for her weapon. “Gown of Frost” comes from Capsule’s 2011 LP, No Ghost, which also includes “Graft”, #19 on the Top 50 South Florida Songs of 2011.
