Candiria

Candiria was initially formed in 1992 by vocalist Carley Coma, guitarists Chris Puma and Eric Matthews, and drummer Kenneth Schalk.Even earlyon they were creating unusual music, with vocals that ranged from dry barks to rap. Candiria's rhythmic guitar style consists ofriffing with littlemelody interrupted by jazzy chord progressions during the jazz breaks. Ken Schalk's drumming often consists ofpolyrhythms. Michael MacIvor, infact, may be the least metal-influenced member of the group, as apparent in his melodically complexbasslines which frequently do not follow theguitar riffs.

Chris Puma was replaced by John Lamacchia before 1997's Beyond Reasonable Doubt, while Lamacchia himself left the band after 2004'sWhatDoesn't Kill You..., due to musical differences. The latter album features a cover photograph of the band's van after a heavy trafficaccident itendured in 2002. It took the band members considerable time to recover from their injuries. LaMacchia later rejoined the band towrite themajority of what would become their follow-up record Kiss The Lie. Eric Matthews later left the band, in part, due to these injuriessustainedduring 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 persue a different path. Mike MacIvor left thebanddue to Schalk's departure. He stated " I will not try and pull the wool over anyone's eyes, including my own. There is no Candiria withoutKenSchalk, as far as I am concerned." Without a rhythm section to tour with in support of the new album, Type A Records refused to releaseKissThe Lie and the album languished for close to two years, held "hostage" by the president of Type A, David Bendeth. However, Bendethreleasedthe unmastered mix of the record onto eMusic, Napster, and iTunes in November 2008, without the band's permission orknowledge. Guitarist JohnLaMacchia has since properly released the record on March 4, 2009 (fully mastered) on his own Rising PulseRecords, in vinyl format only. Thevinyl comes with a CD-R containing a download link to a Digital Pack with liner notes, the record in MP3format (weirdly enough, at 192kbps),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 OfTheCanal, who have thus far released two full-length albums, Sessions from the Flats (1999) and Five Episodes From the Subconscious(2002), aswell as two non-album tracks which appeared on the bonus disc of Candiria's The C.O.M.A. Imprint. Carley Coma and KennethSchalk are now inthe band Hope Kills Fear, a christian rock band, which "was created for the purpose of using heartfelt, catchy songs tospread a message of hope,faith, strength and perseverance." As of March 2009, the only remaining members of Candiria are JohnLaMacchia and Carley Coma; Coma hasstated that any future Candiria efforts will most likely be electronica-based projects as they arewithout a rhythm section. « hide
