Carley Coma the founder and vocalist for the New York based Candiria joined me on Revelator #183 to talk about the bands latest album titled “While You Were Sleeping” the bands first full concept album. Carley talks about the body of work this album represents to him and the band overall.
I describe the album as a cross between “Frank Zappa, Dog fashion Disco and Opeth had a love child born under a bridge then set it out to sea to fish for aquatic life"
It’s easy to understand why Rolling Stone magazine labeled Candiria as one of the top 10 most important metal bands.
Carley and I also cover some social issues regarding recent police shootings, religion, and both out near death accidents in 2002 in Ohio.
The album is now available for preorder. Previously, the band revealed the new song "Mereya," which is currently available as an instant grat track. Listen to "Mereya".
While They Were Sleeping will be available in CD and limited edition colored vinyl. The vinyl will be available in two marble color options, with only 250 copies printed in the U.S. for each option. Option #1, "The Wounded Heart," will be available along with the album preorder. Option #2, "The Veil," will be available at select retail outlets. Limited supplies of both options will also be available at select upcoming Candiria shows.
