Fusing hardcore, metal, jazz, and hip hop, Brooklyn's Candiria made its recording debut in 1995 with "Surrealistic Madness" on Too Damn Hype Records, as well as its follow-up album, "Beyond Reasonable Doubt," in 1997. At this point, Candiria was drawing the attention of larger labels, and would eventually join MIA Records (Darkest Hour, Indecision). In 1999, the highly acclaimed album, "Process of Self Development" would be released. The record would continue to display Candiria's musical growth and versatility, while marking the debut of the band's new bassist. "Process of Self Development" would sell over 20,000 copies within seven months after its release, helping to build the unit's fanbase worldwide. The band would hit an unexpected bump, however, as MIA Records would call it quits. Century Media Records would enter the picture, quickly adding Candiria to its roster, and publishing the band's latest full-length, "300 Percent Density." Receiving praise from numerous media outlets, such as Rolling Stone, College Music Journal (CMJ), and the New York Times, Candiria has toured rigorously to achieve its current status, while also appearing on various comps and seven-inches. With its unique vision and challenging music and lyrics, Candiria, as well as the band's imprint label, C.O.M.A. Productions (Children Of Mental Awareness), could be considered its own culture and lifestyle. Fans of hardcore and metal should definitely check out this genre-defying band. hide
