i kinda like "what doesn't kill you..." (and a little bit more "kiss the lie") but for me it's not at the same level than the previous ones. Chorus in Remove Yourself or Nameless King for example really irritates me.
Well, recognised or not, I am thankful I know of them and have copies of their music. Its something I can pass on and share. Even if the kids of this era and time didn't listen to it, future generations will know...I'll do my part I hope with many others to keep this music cherished and alive in its originality and execution amongst the shit which was suffocating the mass public at the time.
there is a lot of jazz going on in their older stuff, like "beyond reasonable doubt" or "process of self development". and they never really played "mathcore", they made their own mix of hardcore metal, jazz and hip-hop. unfortunately they decided to cut those influences out on the later stuff. i think their saxophone player now is a member of kayo dot. and the new remixes are very interesting, brings back the experimentation to their music.
pacothe27th - the instrumental "Matter. Anti. Matter." is pure jazz, check that one out. "Constant Velocity Is as Natural as Being at Rest" has a jazzy intro that leads to heavier music, that song is killer too.
Really? I agree Dillinger's or Lye By Mistake's mathcore has jazz influences, but this doesn't really. This is more just heavy riffs played technically. On their description it said they had jazz breaks. Can anyone tell me just one song of Candiria's with a jazz break, please? I really want to like these guys more than I do now.
I hear the metal, the rap, the mathcore, yet I fail to hear anything even close to jazz. Am I listening to the wrong band? Or at least the wrong album. What would be considered a jazzier release by this band than their newest one?
The real reason is they didn't have a drummer anymore and the label didn't want to release the album if the band couldn't promote it on the road. That's alo why there is only a LP version of the record since their old label still has the right to the CD version.
By the way, the remixes albums are great if you're open minded and like electronic music, jazz and all that good stuff. Only three songs on there are a little bit disapointing but otherwise they're worth picking up.
I received two of their albums back to back. One was Process of Self Development and the other was What Doesn't Kill You. Process was an amazing album, one of which I listen to on a frequent basis. What Doesn't Kill You, on the other hand, is a joke. It is the definition of generic Christian hardcore/crap. It makes me not want to even investigate their new material at all. Hopefully they turn it around soon.
