Candiria returns with new album, song premiere

Official press release: Brooklyn's musical alchemists Candiria, long-known for fusing metal, hardcore, jazz, and hip-hop in a unique, inimitable blend, will release their new album While They Were Sleeping via Metal Blade Records on October 7. It was recorded at Spaceman Sound in Brooklyn by Tom Tierney and Alex Mead-Fox, and produced by Candiria. It's the band's first album since 2009's Kiss the Lie. While They Were Sleeping is a concept album conceived by the band's lead vocalist Carley Coma. It tells the tale of a failed musician who rises up against a monarchy in New York City. The album is now available for preorder, with the first track "Mereya" available as an instant grat track. Listen to "Mereya" here:

Chaka Malik here. Listen up Mr. Coma you've jacked my story, "the tale of a failed musician who rises up against a monarchy in New York City". That is my story. I was the first black singer in a hardcore band. Stop jacking my life. Please go out and buy From the Ashes. I'm the original failed musician comeback story.

"While They Were Sleeping is a concept album conceived by the band's lead vocalist Carley Coma. It tells the tale of a failed musician who rises up against a monarchy in New York City. Failed musician = Members of Candiria Monarchy = Regional manager of Chipotle This is a concept album about a member of Candiria quitting their job at Chipotle.

Well that definately sucked


anonymous 8/25/2016 2:54:09 PM

well...that got weird as hell.

anonymous: "I am stoked" The words came out of his mouth and landed in the black nothingness with a thud. The only response from the abyss was the echo of the nonsense that had tumbled out of his mouth, the way an emaciated dog falls off the back of a couch, a sad reminder that it was in its final days. He was stoked. Stoked and alone.

Candyass returns

Sound replacement on the drums is super generic and very unnatural. Ken Schalk would not be pleased.


anonymous 8/26/2016 5:07:30 AM

I love all the piece of shit losers that comment on this album, as if they've ever done anything in their lives worth mentioning.


anonymous 8/27/2016 4:55:56 PM

Candiria: Wack Since 1994


anonymous 8/28/2016 1:45:11 PM

'I love all the piece of shit losers that comment on this album, as if they've ever done anything in their lives worth mentioning.' Get over it, dipsh*t...


anonymous 8/29/2016 9:47:40 AM

Oh, I've never gone anywhere musically. I cannot voice an opinion on any music, ever. Sound logic.


anonymous 9/27/2016 9:26:51 AM

Carley Coma taking singing lessons is the worst thing that ever happened to this band. The music is still tight, but fücking hell, his new vocal style is atrocious.
