Candiria are truly a product of the streets of NYC. Their musical expression has no boundaries running the gamit from trippy drum and bass loops to all out guitar driven aggression, from rap to emotional screaming, from avant garde idealism to calculated metallic riffs. All of this occasionally occurring within the confines of a singular son which leaves the average listener with a result not unlike that of alcohol poisoning.

So if you feel up to taking a taste of the intoxicating cocktail known as Candiria than by all means let the room start spinning, but if your mind is as closed as a public wine cellar during prohibition than you should avoid the local speakeasy.
