NY’s Candiria have released a fittingly precise yet disorienting video for the amped up title track of their latest record (and Metal Blade debut) While They Were Sleeping. The song contains plenty of the band’s shifting rhythms and staccato insanity paired with some melodic elements. One of my all time favorite groups, so of course I’m gonna tell you to watch this right away.

Candiria are an old favorite and we are excited to join with the voices congratulating the Brooklyn veteran urban fusion group on their new contract with Metal Blade Records. It is an inspired pairing that ought to wake up more people to the power of the band’s music. Check out a new documentary on the band HERE.

Sarabeth from the almost too excellent Tower posted a Judas Priest song on her babely Facebook page the other night and it got me thinking how even “bad” Priest is better than everything and how I love the video for “Turbo Lover” and don’t care. It made me think how much metal or good rock n roll or hip hop deserves a fighting chance, no matter what.

Some bands  settle for less than they deserve, a few beer tickets every few months at a local show or they never have any drive and want to jerk off alone with a slice of pizza as a glove because they have no fans.It’s easy to say that giving up on metal, noise, punk, rap etc is a (non gender specific) bitch move.That’s because,essentially, this is true. It’s criminal to betray an artform that gives back and nourishes the soul in so many deep ways, though in real world ways it can eat you alive.

Watching White Lung Saint Vitus Bar NYC footage today or recently listening to Give Up The Ghost/American Nightmare’s We’re Down Til We’re Underground, I was moved by the musical power enough to register on some level thanks for these examples of recently active performers who matter. Art can be limited to a time period and still have relevance.There are many short lived, amazing bands.Or time periods we love to mull over (early Metallica, Naked Raygun or Rollins Band albums hold a place in the hearts of various humans like Dave Mustaine, Steve Albini & Scott Ian, for example.)

I’ve been enjoying Dr. Dre’s Compton album (except for the murder fantasy skit as I know lots of people love to re-enact Wu Tang skit’s or whatever and just found it a distraction from brilliant flow of rest of record as well as distasteful, but it’s not unrealistic shitilly enough).There’s part of the record where the master producer Dre mentions how he doesn’t respect whiners, to paraphrase.Cuz it is tough out there, and I legitimately feel that.

The music industry is the same way.Let’s hear from members of bands like Candiria, He Whose Ox Is Gored, Circuitry, Atriarch and more on what’s kept them going. I even asked my rapper pal Mattrix what keeps him grindin’ and rhymin’ (this is a dude who has had way more first week video plays than some established rappers).

We’re eagerly anticipating the Spylacopa pending full length Parallels (due out Tuesday, March 31st via dope Brooklyn based label Rising Pulse). The album will be out on deluxe colored vinyl and across all major digital platforms and is sure to make a big, red splash. The band is capable of pulling off many styles from more alternative rock leanings to ambient moments to intense post-metal.

In this new (video) mini documentary John LaMacchia of Spylacopa discusses specifically the making of “Hexes”, the (NSFW) video for the opening track off of the record. Spylacopa Promo “Making Hexes”, a behind the scenes mini documentary can be seen HERE.

A link for the previously released completed “Hexes” video, which was directed by independent video artist and film maker Steve Perlmaster can be found directly HERE.

The full length Album, Parallels, was Produced by John LaMacchia, mixed by Ken Schalk of John’s other band Candiria and mastered by Julian Silva at On Air Mastering

Pre orders for the deluxe colored vinyl are available now.

LaMacchia also graced us with a full length text interview on the whole album/current state of the band which you can read HERE.

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!
