Take fireball vocal powerhouse Dity and the hard hitting, harder grooving Raven brothers, bind them together and you get Coridian.
It's the four piece Auckland based group who are fast becoming one of the best new names in Kiwi rock.
A combination of emotive lyrics and heavy, yet still ambient, sound have crafted the band's signature style.
They’ve been described, “Raven brothers (Mike, Kris and Nick respectively) work as a well-oiled machine; the gear box of which is Maharaj, his vocals taking the band from a hum to a scream within seconds” (Sarah Kidd -Ambient Light)
"When I think of local hard-working bands and front men in the Auckland music scene, two names always come to mind – Dity Maharaj..." (Mark Derricutt - Ambient Light Blog)
And the boys are becoming crowd favourites for their massive shows, tight performances and catchy sounds.
They've worked with some of the best names in NZ music including Zorran Mendonsa (New Way Home, Set On End) and Forrester Savell (Shihad, I Am Giant, Karnivool). They've toured extensively around NZ, performing with high profile NZ acts such as Devilskin, City of Souls, I Am Giant, Skinny Hobos, Ekko Park, Silence the City as well as international acts such as P.O.D (USA), Skillet (USA), Fuel (USA), Fozzy (USA), Sumo Cyco (CAN) & Red Sea (AUS).
Coridian’s first EP Oceanic was released in August 2015, featuring Alexandria and Frogs & Crossbones. Following on from the success of this, they released singles Blind Faith (2016) and Reflections (2017).
Nov 2017 saw the release of their anticipated 2nd Release “Caldera” accompanied with a tour and festival shows (Supporting the Devilskin 2017 Tour & the New Plymouth Tattoofest) Coridian ended 2017 supporting Fuel on their sold out Auckland show.
2018 has taken Coridian to new levels with a Summer Tour and support slots for P.O.D, Skillet, Fozzy, City of Souls, I Am Giant & Skinny Hobos Album release tour.
2019 was the foundation to their highly acclaimed album "Eldur" with another government funded video for Rite of Passage
