In great news for the metal and hardcore scene, urban fusion cross genre revolutionary wizards Candiria are back with their first new jams in years. “The Invaders” is available in 7 inch vinyl with pre-orders available now and an official digital release date of April, 29th through Rising Pulse Records.
Let’s hope this band comes back strong because their innovation, skill and some of the best live stage energy you will ever see this side of Converge is sorely missed. Candiria were at the forefront of the 90’s-00’s NYC underground, constantly educating crowds at CBGB’s and other venues while bridging the gap between tech metal, jazz, hip hop, hardcore and alternative rock. The first records even have a fair amount of death metal growling. If you don’t know these guys, drop what you are doing and go pay respects to one of the best damn bands of the modern era. I really like Veil of Maya, for example, but Candiria were the innovators who laid the groundwork. Represent!
