Origin Denmark


The Kandidate is a danish metal/hardcore band, formed in 2009 by ex-members of The Downward Candidate and Hatesphere. Especially vocalist Jacob Bredahl has become a rock star in among Chinese metal heads due his incredible performance on Midi Festival 2007 in Beijing.

But make no mistake, the music of The Kandidate evolved for the better. Retaining the energy that spawned them, The Kandidate now delivers both the heaviest and the most frantic chaos they have ever created, due in part to the addition of new drummer Niels Peter, whose Spartan drumming and new creative force has helped the members approach songwriting as a united band.

The obvious benefits of producing your own band cannot override the undeniable obstacles of producing yourself. So when it came time for Jacob to record the vocals, producer Tue Madsen was enlisted to squeeze out every last drop of bodily fluid from Jacob’s performance. The recording sessions ultimately ended on a new high.

The Kandidate released their debut album “Until We Are Outnumbered” in 2010. They released their second album: “Facing the Imminent Prospect of Death” in January 2012.
