ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Artist Information

Biography
CANOBLISS is a San Diego, CA based five-piece progressive hard rock/metal band originally founded in 1997 by Samson Pedroza and Chenzo Vidalez. After releasing the album Wicked Necessary in 1998, there were years of turbulent times and multiple lineup changes until the band added brothers Mike and Jon Russo in early 2004. The band released their second album Demon Angel later that year. Unsatisfied with their vocalist at the time, Canobliss began looking for a new front-man in early 2005. After an exhaustive search and hundreds of auditions from hopefuls all over the world, Canobliss added Johan Maldonado in the summer of 2006. His talent, versatility and range as a vocalist complimented Canobliss’ style and sound perfectly. With their newly found line-up, Canobliss independently released their full-length CD Liberation of Dissonance on July 21, 2007. Beginning in March '08 Canobliss launched a successful national college radio campaign to promote L.O.D., and hit the #1 slot at KSLU-1 (St. Louis, MO) and KSAU (Nacogdoches, TX) in addition to breaking the top 10 at several others. Already, Canobliss has recorded a brand new 7-song EP that was released on July 19, 2008. The EP, entitled Psychothermia, is the sophomore release for the existing lineup and the band feels that it is their strongest release to date. Canobliss is proud to have completely self-produced their last three albums from start to finish including all tracking, editing, mixing as well as layout and assembling of the artwork. However, despite many excellent reviews of their albums, it is their high energy live show that fans say keep them coming back for more. Over the past few years Canobliss has spread their name and music by playing dozens of live shows, handing out thousands of free demos, tagging up countless stickers, developing a strong online presence, receiving radio airplay across the country and creating a full line of merchandise. By exercising extensive promotion and the ability to market themselves, Canobliss has developed a broad and continuously growing fan base without compromising their musical integrity.

PRESS
Canobliss has been played on over 150 radio stations and podcasts across the country (for a full list, please go to the band bio at www.canobliss.com). Canobliss has also enjoyed many radio plays, interviews and appearances on San Diego's ROCK 105.3 Missi’s Loud and Local Show in addition to a TV appearance on KOCT in Oceanside, CA.

PERFORMANCES
Canobliss has many shows under their belts at a variety of California, Arizona, and Nevada clubs including House of Blues, Cane’s Bar & Grill, Whisky A Go Go, Brick By Brick, The Knitting Factory, The Cell Block, The Sets, Cheyenne Saloon, The Gig, The Good Hurt, and Dream Street with excellent response to their energetic live shows.

INFLUENCES
Canobliss’ influences are very wide and diverse ranging from hard rock and metal, to classical, jazz and hip hop. They have been compared to System of A Down, Metallica, Tool, Godsmack, Rage Against the Machine, Megadeth, Slipknot and Disturbed, among many others.

420 fans aint rich but your jams rock
guys it sounds like you are coming up in the ranks ...but i see why new vocalist is needed, the crunchy gothic grrrrrrr
sound is going out... you need true vocal talent to drive home the awesome lyrics.
otherwise i am sure many label interests will be watching.
if you come to az your style will be loved
we have a huge metal fan base out here.
good luck.

Worth a Good Listen, Fresh, But Some Issues
Canobliss isn't Metallica. Turns out that's a good thing - this is some pretty fresh stuff you won't have heard before. I might describe it as unique, but then again a few friends I played it for labled it 'generic'. Of course, the conclusion I draw is that they don't know music from a pile of sh*t. Anyway, if you are skeptical, I would say the CD is worth a buy just for the last track 'Last Breath'. I should also say that the CD does not rely on one or two tracks to carry it and is solid decent music throughout. There are a few recording issues here and there, but I don't think anybody but an audiofile like myself would actually notice. At $10 Demon Angel is hard to beat in bang for your buck, and better then a lot of more well-known names. If you buy, do please make sure to listen to each song all the way through, as there are some really wicked bridges/riffs that tend to appear near the end of Canobliss's songs.

A few gripes I have: 1.Not a fan of the art. I would call it cheap/cheesy, but then again, album art does not make the music. 2. Canobliss? Demon Angel? A little more originality, goddammit! 3. The lyrics are ocassionally forced and could use a little re-writing. I had a little trouble deciding if a few lines were supposed to be nonsensical or if they were just bad. Lyrics comes with time and it sounds like Canobliss wrote this whole album within an hour.

Overall, I will probably buy this band's next album, and am glad I took a little gamble on this one. You will get more than $10 enjoyment from Demon Angel. Alright, I've already written way too much. Summary: Buy if you are bored with what's out there. Buy if you are bored with Metallica. Buy it before they sign with a major label and it costs you $18 to buy it.

Badass to the max
This band reminds me of metallica except more powerful but that isnt how i got into it i got into it cus my uncle is in the band and cus my dad just randomly gave me the cd, but anyhow this cd is awesomely good and it has a good bassist(my uncle) : )

Jeremy

wicked band
this cd is like the greatest thing to happen to music in my opinion and im not just saying that cus my uncle plays bass in the band and also im not just saying that cus i get all the cds for free i say it cus i am being a show off and i am typeing this to give my uncle a good rep.

Tara

Bad Ass!!!! This band rocked my world!!! Hard hitting with a different sound...I
I am very impressed! There isn't much else to say but, BUY THE CD! The hard sound is accompanied with funky beats and it is fun to party to. I really liked the bass beats...

COB so deserves to be heard- they have worked their assess off
i personally know that years of sweat, blood and tears have been poured into CANOBLISS beginning with WICKED NECESSARY
if you havent heard WICKED NECESSARY, then you probably are skeptical and not much into DEMON ANGEL
the first cd had me hooked - im sure there will be more, much more to come and with time they can only get better and bigger
so you better buy youre cd's now; you never know..
you might just end up with a collector's item for only $10
much luck, happiness and prosperity to COB
