There’s a lot of bands that never get their proper due, and it seems that I tend to find myself a fan of many of them – bands that sometimes disappear for a bit, and then return. HELMET, FAITH NO MORE, PRONG – all of those fit that bill, and now we can add CANDIRIA to that mix. A genre-bending Brooklyn band that melded metal, jazz, funk – even hip-hop elements into their sonic mix, it was a horrific van crash that changed everything. Now, they’ve signed to Metal Blade Records and will release their first album since 2009 next year.

“Metal Blade have been at the forefront of extreme music since I was a kid. Just like Candiria, they have always pushed the boundaries of music, and have trusted their gut instincts. I can’t think of a better place to call home for the future of Candiria. We are extremely happy to be a part of the Metal Blade family.”Bassist Michael MacIvor

With the announcement comes a new Candiria mini-documentary from Metal Injection that “gives fans a glimpse of the current state of the band, and also reflects on the events that led them to this new chapter. The video serves as a perfect introduction for the uninitiated, as well as a fresh take for old fans.” Watch the video now:

Definitely a record I’ll seriously be looking forward to. Stay tuned…
