We started Craneium over ten years ago with the ambition to play fuzzy stoner rock. Back then we drew inspiration from all the classic desert and stoner albums by Kyuss, Sleep, and Fu Manchu When we dug deeper, we found amazing bands like Truckfighters, Dozer, and Kadavar.
As our sound has developed over the years, we try to bring in influences from all kinds of music styles. By now it feels like we have a pretty clear picture of what sounds like Craneium and what doesn’t. The ambition is still to play fuzzy stoner rock, and we do get inspired by all the amazing bands in the vibrant heavy underground scene. At the same time we want to bring our own thing to the table and we do this by listening to everything from hardcore to 60’s R&B.
