“Death is the ultimate mystery, the unknowable darkness from which none return. For some the inevitability of death fills them with fear, a constant parasite of panic gnawing at their nerves. For others that same inevitability leads to simple, quiet acceptance. And for a few troubled souls death becomes an obsession, an addiction, an entity to worship and adore - a god. They are driven to feed the insatiable hunger of their god, piling body upon body on their altars of morbid fascination and lust. Soon, the simple extinguishing of life is not enough to satisfy the thrill driven killers and their gods of destruction; the method of dispatch becomes ever crueller, more wickedly inventive, sadistically creative. Each victim is a canvas, each corpse a twisted work of art...each sacrifice an act of depraved murder.”
Best description of a band ever.
The group was founded in 2001 by the twin brothers Mats and Martin Funderud ( RIP ). Having played previously in hardcore and black metal projects together, the brothers seeked out for a heavier project. Their original idea for a band name was "Cranium", but having seen that this band name was used several times before, they desired to innovate the word and spelling for it. The word "kranium" is Norwegian for "skull" and is pronounced the exact same as "cranium" in English. The band's first demo was self-pressed and released in 2002. Their early sound heard on this demo was inspired heavily by grindcore and deathgrind acts. Over the years since, more slams have been included. Thus making them one of original slam metal bands.
With their first release since the tragic passing of their original vocalist Martin Funderud, come check out to she how they carried on and continued to keep it brutal.Read More
