Capitol Punishment is the second EP release from Colorado heavy metal group, Immortal Sÿnn. It was recorded at The Spot Studios in Lakewood, CO with producers Rich Veltrop and Glenn Sawyer.

The EP sees the group move in an even heavier direction than its predecessor, Machine Men, and lightyears from their first release - the Barfly EP - which owes more to hard rock on the musical spectrum. Lyrically, like Machine Men before it, this record explores themes of individuality, self-determination, and government corruption. The music on Capitol Punishment draws its influences from thrash artists such as Exodus, Megadeth, and Slayer; as well as from NWOBHM heavyweights such as Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Motörhead. The opposing guitar styles of Miguel Ruíz and Tony Z combine John Petrucci-like technicality with the directness and attitude of guitarists such as Tony Iommi and Ritchie Blackmore. A solid rhythm section in drummer Axel Berrios and bassist Andrew Cope drives the record’s 20-minute aural assault from the fade-in of “Not Anymore” to the final cymbal crashes in “Extinction (M.S.T.)”.

With the departure of long-time vocalist Chase McClellan, Drew and Miguel try their hand at lead vocals for the first time. Miguel gives a performance almost reminiscent of later-era David Draiman on "Not Anymore" and "Fight Back", while Drew gives a vocal performance similar to GWAR on "Japanese Sky". On the closing track, "Extinction (M.S.T.)", the two trade off on vocal duties. While Miguel retains his Disturbed-like tone, Drew switches it up and gives an abrasive thrash-bordering-on-black-metal delivery.

The album cover, a reference to a line in "Not Anymore", was custom created by Moon Ring Design.
