about

Shone as the void uncovered:
The silence of deep height was drawn
A veil across the silver dawn
On holy wings that hovered

This record will destroy your mind and reap your soul. From the musicians who brought you "The Slowerdrive Tapes" and one hit wonder "The Gnome", here's the full album. And as you might have hoped for, it's filled to the breakingpoint with fuzzy madness and mind crawling craziness. The magnitude of heavy can only be described as a sonic dreamscape. Through the desert lands, vast dunes and evil cults. From witches gatherings to space and back, just in time for the harvest season.

Explore the Void…tune down, turn up and fuzz out!

Craneium would like to thank all of those who have supported us through this process: girlfriends, wives, family and friends..

..especially Alexander Björkqvist of The Big Sky Theory, who deserves the biggest of gratitudes for his patience and knowledge during the making of this album. We can't thank you enough.

Richard "Pickles" Dahllund of Mangoo, Daniel Nyström of Shitboot and Axel Vienonen of I, Captain. All of whom lent us their time and gear on more than a couple of occasions. 3rd Trip and all the other cool bands and people we've met and played with. These bands mentioned are all seriously worth checking out, they're awesome.

Track Name: Imperial Duster
On down the highway
Cruising the milky way
I'm a space columbus
Caught in the deep blue
On down the road here
Passing Jupiters stratosphere
We stop for a refuel
At Mr. Greens

Burn, Imperial Duster
You hear the engines laughter
See the devil in the rearview mirror

Burn, Imperial Duster
I'm one crazy baron
See the skyline turn into disaster

What can I do for you
Fill her up, we're taking a detour
That's 5, 99 99 million hours per mile
Feeling calm, feeling mellow
Getting closer the devil
We head for a black hole
Never to return

Burn, Imperial Duster
You hear the engines laughter
See the devil in the rearview mirror

Burn, Imperial Duster
I'm one crazy baron
See the skyline turn into disaster

Burn, burn, Imperial Duster
Burn, Burn, Imperial Duster
Burn, Burn, Imperial Duster
Burn, Burn, Burn
Burn, Burn, Imperial Duster

Uh
Track Name: Meet On Mars
Once upon a time was a mind sky high
Explored the voids that no one else knew about
Starry eyes burning red, he's fueled and leaving now
Then a final thought came into his head

When I leave this world behind
And explode into the sky
We'll meet on Mars

In his state of mind, he is all at ease
He's filled the void, now it's in his reach
The dunes are clear, he can see the sands
Atop of the hill, Looking down on us

When I leave this world behind
And explode into the sky
We'll meet on Mars
Track Name: Holy Oath
The aftermath of a bad bad trip
A sadist on the other end of a whip
Could this be the end I quipped?

Broken and bent, trapped in steel chains
Magical torture on hollow remains
I ache for black drugs in my veins.

Oh I bend to your will
Oh master please
I´m loyal still

If i could dream of a better tomorrow
Beyond the ways of the cult that I follow
And the moon would light my way

There´s no escaping from these evil ways
The Wizard rules us by the evil gaze
All days disappear in a haze

You broke the holy oath

Oh I bend to your will
Oh master please
I´m loyal still

I'm loyal, loyal still
Track Name: Tzar Bomba
Controlled puppets on strings
Proud to die by the wings
Once and never before
Shake the earth to the core

Downfall is in the night
Mushroom cloud will soar high
Once and never again
Carnage by acid rain
Track Name: Harvest
Descending from the black on to the desert down below
Colossus made of metal, emitting unknown glow
As this monster lands the desert's dressed in flames
We welcome you dear friends, you who bear no names

And in the other end, ascending from the cold
Bottom of the sea, is where the secrets all unfold
A signal from above tells them that it's time
Preparing to reach surface when the planets all align

It's time for harvest now
These creatures shows us how
Track Name: Demon Of The Sands
There is no escaping, I feel my belly aching
I found the Demon of the Sands
Where the land meets the skies
Nothing but dustballs fly
Azaleth ruler of these lands

Grab me by the bones
Dirt and withered stones
You turn the mountains into dust
Where the land meets the skies
Nothing but vultures fly
Azaleth ruler of these lands

Demon of the Sands
Take me in your hands

Beneath the burning sun
Where camels go to die
Serpent chosen one
King crawling lizard eyes
Track Name: Dr. Plague
See me sweep from door to door
And where I go, well death it follows
You may have heard me knock before
So you'll what news that I'll bring you

I've got many roads to travel
As I ride across the land
You may have heard my name before
You know they call me Dr. Plague

Come the crane, Come the plague
Track Name: Witchcoven
I once was baptized in a church
but turned away when I knew I could
And I remember when I learned to write
his name..in blood

A witches coven took me in
And they showed me to the light
Walking hand in hand with Lucifer
Their master...in the night

Electrify me be my witch
(Electrify me be my witch)
Track Name: Ceasing To Exist
I spoke my mind I spoke the truth
I spoke my mind...I spoke the truth
What a legacy to leave behind
Is afterlife....the only reason you were kind?

Guess I just have to deal with
Ceasing to exist

I spoke my mind, did you smoke yours?
I spoke my mind, but you smoked yours!
What can I do, but sip in every breath?
And wait for impending death

Guess I just have to deal with
Ceasing to exist
