Dark Wave / EBM
Weird Candle is a Minimal Industrial/Electro-punk duo formed in Vancouver BC in 2013. Founding members Robert Katerwol, and Caleb Blagdon compose on a variety of digital and Analog synthesizers and drum machines. Weird Candle creates heavy rhythms over dark melodies under a veil of lyrical themes and ideas such as bizarro parallel realities, dark subcultures, the occult, and a lust for late night adventure.
As of mid 2016, Weird Candle added a 3rd member to the line up, Steve Ferrera (Time Cops, Manic Attracts) to take on live percussion.
To date, Weird Candle has released three full length albums: Their self titled debut on compact disc, Regeneration on Vinyl, via Weyrd Son Records, and most recently Alter Ego, on a self released tape cassette.
Weird Candle have shared stages with a variety of acts such as Front Line Assembly, Youth Code, HFF, All Your Sisters, and Pure Ground, and have toured across North America, and Europe.
