Candiria - 300 Percent Density (CD)

300 Percent Density
by Makis Kirkos at 08 May 2001, 8:01 PM

Candiria seems to fusion hardcore, metal, jazz, funk and hip-hop. Some people say that this will be the course of extreme music, well… I don't think so.

This release has some quite marks. I mean,I never before had heard hip-hop and jazz been incorporated like this into a death metal and hardcore context. Process clocked in at nearly 65 minutes and was replete with conceptual ingenuity, instrumental virtuosity and a production approach somewhere in between Pink Floyd and Slayer. Candiria creates a world where everything is possible again, where the old rules are tossed out the window, where previous boundaries no longer exist. Candiria is a well-known band in the US , with 3 full length releases. I can say that '300 Percent Density', represents an elegant evolution in Candiria's style, mixing ear-grabbing hooks with the trademark mind-blowing instrumental transmutations that have won Candiria the respect and praise of musicians and fans all over the world. Unmistakably Candiria are full of musical surprises.

Candiria's ability to re-create the energy and technical proficiency demonstrated on their recordings has resulted in invitations to share the stage with some of the most respected bands of the era, including bills with Sepultura, Biohazard, Meshuggah, Machine Head, Cannibal Corpse and more. So, if you like extreme metal mixtures with hip-hop, jazz and hardcore you will love them or else I am sure you will hate them.
