Product Notes

This CD showcases Cranium in it's earlier stages of developing a new vision for metal and instumental music in general. Some of the compositions are built much like jazz tunes, using a head-solos-head format, and emphasizing the individual talents of the three members of the band while still creating a strong, tight, and cohesive group sound. The music also borrows melodically and rhythmically from Middle Eastern and world music. Strongly influenced by artists as wide ranging as King Crimson, Rabih-Abou Khalil, John Zorn, Meshuggah, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Screaming Headless Torsos, Dave Holland Quintet, Ornette Coleman, Krysyztof Penderecki, James Brown, Helmet, Napalm Death, and Weather Report, just to name a few. The overall musical aim is to allow the disparate musical interests of the individual band members to gel together to create a new kind of music while remaining fiercely uncompromising in it's creation and performance.
