Candiria

Candiria was initially formed in 1992 by vocalist Carley Coma, guitarists Chris Puma and Eric Matthews, and drummer Kenneth Schalk. Evenearly on they were creating unusual music, with vocals that ranged from dry barks to rap. Candiria's rhythmic guitar style consists of riffingwith little melody interrupted by jazzy chord progressions during the jazz breaks. Ken Schalk's drumming often consists of polyrhythms.Michael MacIvor, in fact, may be the least metal-influenced member of the group, as apparent in his melodically complex bass lines whichfrequently do not follow the guitar riffs.

Chris Puma was replaced by John Lamacchia before 1997's Beyond Reasonable Doubt, while Lamacchia himself left the band after2004's What Doesn't Kill You..., due to musical differences. The latter album features a cover photograph of the band's van after a heavytraffic accident it endured in 2002. It took the band members considerable time to recover from their injuries. LaMacchia later rejoined theband to write the majority of what would become their follow-up record Kiss The Lie. Eric Matthews later left the band, in part, due tothese injuries sustained during the aforementioned accident.

Adding good friend Eddie Ortiz onto second guitar, the band headed into the studio in 2006 to complete their upcoming record Kiss TheLie.However, upon finishing the sessions, Ken Schalk left the band, citing that it was time to pursue a different path. Mike MacIvor left theband due to Schalk's departure. He stated " I will not try and pull the wool over anyone's eyes, including my own. There is no Candiriawithout Ken Schalk, as far as I am concerned." Without a rhythm section to tour with in support of the new album, Type A Records refused torelease Kiss The Lie and the album languished for close to two years, held "hostage" by the president of Type A, David Bendeth.However, Bendeth released the unmastered mix of the record onto eMusic, Napster, and iTunes in November 2008, without the band'spermission or knowledge. Guitarist John LaMacchia has since properly released the record on March 4, 2009 (fully mastered) on his ownRising Pulse Records, in vinyl format only. The vinyl comes with a CD-R containing a download link to a Digital Pack with liner notes, therecord in MP3 format (weirdly enough, at 192 kbps), band photos, lyrics, and other content.

Drummer Ken Schalk, Bassist Mike MacIvor, and Guitarist John Lamacchia have been involved in a free-jazz side project named Ghosts Of TheCanal, who have thus far released two full-length albums, Sessions from the Flats (1999) and Five Episodes From theSubconscious (2002), as well as two non-album tracks which appeared on the bonus disc of Candiria's The C.O.M.A. Imprint. CarleyComa and Kenneth Schalk are now in the band Hope Kills Fear, a christian rock band, which "was created for the purpose of using heartfelt,catchy songs to spread a message of hope, faith, strength and perseverance." As of March 2009, the only remaining members of Candiria areJohn LaMacchia and Carley Coma; Coma has stated that any future Candiria efforts will most likely be electronica-based projects as they arewithout a rhythm section. « hide
