We propose another extension of Orlicz-Sobolev spaces to metric spaces based on the concepts of the -modulus and -capacity. The resulting space is a Banach space. The relationship between and (the first extension defined in Aïssaoui (2002)) is studied. We also explore and compare different definitions of capacities and give a criterion under which is strictly smaller than the Orlicz space .
