Music: Candiria

L to R: Maclvor, Schalk, Coma, Matthews, Lamacchia

Candiria is an Genre Roulette band hailing from Brooklyn, New York. They're best known for blending elements of Metalcore, Hip Hop, and Jazz Fusion into a distinctive style they like to refer to as "urban fusion". While driving on the way to a gig in Cleveland to support their new album during September 2002, Candiria's equipment trailer was hit by a semi-truck, sending it and the van the band was driving flipping several times down the road. Miraculously, the entire band survived the ordeal and even made a picture of the demolished van the album cover for 2004's What Doesn't Kill You....
