Artist of the Week - Week 3
Founded in 2001
Kraanium is a Slam band originated from Norway, I couldn't find who exactly formed the band, but i believe it was Mats Funderurd and Martin Funderurd (They were brothers). Mats played (and still does!) Guitar and Martin did the vocals. Martin was always a really unique vocalist in the Slam Scene. Martin Committed Suicide back in 2017.
They made 3 demos, 4 full lengths and 2 Split albums until Martin passed away.
The vocalist was replaced soon after by Jack Christensen From Denmark.
The Amazing Current lineup:
Mats Funderud - guitar, backing vocals
Jason Varlamos - guitar
Erhan Karaca - Drums
Mika da Costa - 🅱️ass
Jack Christensen - Vocals
Now what makes this band stand oud and so unique is their style. honestly i can't describe it very well but it is so different from the majority of slam bands but it is still slam as fuck. You should listen to it yourself and you'll know what i mean.
Their lyrics are so grotesque, fun and disgusting, it's like old cannibal corpse x5. They also use fun sound clips as intro's and those always make me laugh. They are hands down my favorite slam band!
My favorite work of them:(in no particular order)
1: Slamchosis 2018
2: The Kraanialepsy (Split) (2017)
3: 10 Acts of Sickening Perversion (2008)
4 Double Promo Penetration (compilation of the 2007 and 2008 Demo)
