Album Review

Candiria has been able to rise above many of their peers in the hardcore scene and cause quite a buzz for their amazing and distinctive jazz/hardcore/hip-hop hybrid of sound, and that buzz is more than justifiable. Anyone wishing to disagree should first listen to their 2002 release, the double-disc monster The C.O.M.A. Imprint. The first disc offers up what every Candiria fan could hope for, 11 scorching tracks of pure originality. From the offsetting guitar experimentation to frontman Carley Coma's unique vocal delivery, the music on display is mindblowing at the very least. The only period when Candiria loses their footing is on their cover of Method Man's "Bring the Pain." Here the band seems a bit nervous and speeds through the track without allowing verses to stand out as prominently as in the original version, and it is a minor letdown. Luckily, Candiria makes up for the one unstable moment with the stellar "Year One" and several other brilliant songs. As always, Candiria continues to remain one of hardcore's most exciting and unpredictable bands on The C.O.M.A. Imprint, an album that deserves all the praise it receives. ~ Jason D. Taylor, Rovi
