Risen from the ashes of the almighty OMEGA MASSIF, CRANIAL took the best ingredients to create their own sound and develope it further. With the EP „Dead Ends“ (Moment Of Collapse Records) the quartet from Würzburg set not only a sign of life in 2015, but also put a bold exclamation point in the international post-metal / sludge scene. Just over a year later, the critically acclaimed debut album „Dark Towers, Bright Lights“ got also released by Moment Of Collapse Records. CRANIAL understand how to combine heavyness, melody and atmosphere. Several festival invitations and shows (with CONVERGE, AHAB, etc.) followed. In September 2019 their second album „Alternate Endings“ will again be released via Moment Of Collapse Records. With their new album CRANIAL again pushed themselves forward, refined their songwriting and found with Ghost City Recordings and Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna) a perfect team for setting up the most crushing sound.
Please note that we do our best to protect vinyl records ideally for shipping, using our custom made mailers and additional cardboard squares. However, we can not guarantee that no damage on the way occurs. Ordering is at one's own risk. Vinyl might be delivered unsealed as we have to open copies to check vinyl colours, if not sufficiently labeled by the distributor / label.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PRE-ORDERS
Pre-order means that your item will not ship before it's release date and so will all other items on your order. We do not split up orders, everything will be shipped all at once together in one package.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PRODUCT IMAGES
Please note that most of the images in our store are not actual photos but mock ups. These mock ups are digital representations of what we expect the final product to look like - however they do not represent the final product. Final vinyl pressings, prints, etc. may look slightly different.
