Candiria Put Their Money Where Their Mouth is on “Mereya”
Today is one of those terrific embarrassment of riches days where a ton of noteworthy bands release new music: Meshuggah, In Flames, Every Time I Die, Asphyx… and now Candiria! The band, one of Brooklyn’s most beloved merchants of noise, will release a new concept album called While They Were Sleeping (a creepy tribute to John Carpenter’s They Live?) this fall, and have now unveiled a song from that album. It’s called “Mereya,” and holy shit, is it ever great… just as aggro and catchy and idiosyncratic as you’d want a new Candiria song to be. This is one of these songs where you can’t really predict where it’s going… but where it’s going is always awesome.
Don’t take my word for it! Stream “Mereya” for yourself below. While They Were Sleeping comes out October 7 on Metal Blade. Pre-order it here!
