Founding member of Candiria dies


Candiria In the wake of their latest release, Toying With the Insanities, current members of Candiria have learned the sad news that original Candiria guitarist, Chris Puma, passed away last week, on September 20th.
The band has issued the following statement…
"Chris Puma died on September 20th 2009. The cause is not known to us, as his family did not speak of it. He leaves behind two children, 3 year old Aislinn A'marie and a 4 month old Aidan Todd. Chris was a great friend to the founding members of the band, and a respected musician among his friends and peers. He was a kind and gentle person and he will be missed."
Puma was one of the founding members of the band, playing guitar in Candiria from 1992 to 1997, while helping to create the unique sound that Candiria is known for today. He can be heard on such Candiria records as Deep in the Mental (1995) and Surrealistic Madness (1995).
