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.
