‘Kraanium have long been held as one of the absolute leading names in European Brutal Death Metal. Everything about this record is just brutally delicious, from the production, through to the artwork to the concept, it epitomises what the genre represents and we are over the moon to bring the Northern Slam Titans to our roster’.
KRAANIUM was formed in 2001 and are one of the original pioneers of the slamming brutal death metal genre. Originally founded in the depths of hell in Norway, the band is now a multinational slam machine from all over Europe.
Over the years they have released 5 full length studio albums, 3 split CDS with more releases in motion. Having toured all over Europe, USA, Russia, Asia as well as performing at many iconic festivals, they have built up a solid world wide fan base and will continue to spread the brutality of SLAM!
Since the passing of their dear brother Martin Funderud, (Former vocalist, 1978-2017), the band is dedicated to honor him as well as his passion for brutal music. Rest in Power.
