Released via MOMENT OF COLLAPSE RECORDS in September 2015.
Würzburgs outstanding OMEGA MASSIF disbanded already some time ago. But this end was just a beginning for the members of OMEGA MASSIF. One part founded the band PHANTOM WINTER, another joined BLACKSMOKER and now also the last member (Michael Melchers - Guitar) releases a new project called CRANIAL. He found new partners in Julian (Bass, Vocals), Cornelius (Drums) and Bastian (Guitar, Vocals) and they began in late 2014 to write their first songs. The results are two heavy, sludgy Postmetal songs, which continue, where OMEGA MASSIF stopped. An epic, very consistent and heavy atmosphere builds up and will be brigtened up by clear melodic guitar lines. The band manages to create a great build up of suspense so that the songs never become boring or monotonous. Forget about all modern trends and hypes. This is classic heavy Postmetal. Two song with a lenghth of (each) over 9 minutes, don't create a feeling of an EP here. Other bands release albums with a shorter duration. The songs were recorded under the control of Tobias Anderko at the Blank Disc Studios. Mix and Master by Postmetal-God Roland / Tonmeisterei. Dead Ends will be released on CD, Vinyl, Tape and Digital. The Vinyl version has a screenprinted B-Side and the logo punched in the cover!
