Boomkat product review for:

split cranium - Split Cranium

Split Cranium is an Finnish/Amero force of nature steeped in punk and progressive metal heritage perpetrated by members of Circle, Pharoah Overlord, Steel Mammoth and Mammifer/Ex-Isis. "Birthed kicking, screaming and drenched in smelly amniotic slime, Split Cranium is the result of a recording session that promptly reversed course. Lehtisalo and Kröger had spent a few days unfurling some artsy-fartsy free-noise-rock improvisations before deciding to just get f**king riff on. Circle had recently joined ISIS on the latter's final European tour, during which Lehtisalo and Turner had discussed forming an unstoppable Scandi-American justice league of maximum musical proportions. Right after his improv session went punk, Lehtisalo heard that clicking sound that everyone always references when they say dumb sh*t like "It just clicked." The token American was drafted post-haste. Koskinen was simultaneously hauled in from NWOFHM killers Steel Mammoth. Left brains were promptly separated from right brains. Split Cranium were to, uh, split craniums."
