Craneium Finish Recording New Album

Finnish heavy rockers Craneium are barely one year removed from Oct. 2021’s Unknown Heights (review here), but they’ve finished putting their next full-length to tape, working with Joona Hassinen as producer, as they will, en route to mixing/mastering by the increasingly-esteemed Karl Daniel Lidén. That’s a whole process in itself, of course, but I saw the announcement the follows here and bothered guitarist/vocalist Martin Ahlö for more info, and as you can see below, a previously recorded single will arrive in February. To me, that says maybe a release in mid-summer?

Depends obviously on pressing delays, but being done tracking is an occasion worth marking just the same. Live dates coming soon? So much the better.

Unknown Heights came out through The Sign Records and I expect the next album, whatever they end up calling it, to do the same. Here’s what they had to say on it:

That’s a wrap! Recording your own music can be quite a nerve-racking experience. That’s why we wanted to do it at Studio Underjord together with Joona. He manages to take the stress out of the equation and has guided us through our process with calm and precision. We’re one big step closer to #craneiumvol4

Thanks for an unforgettable week ❤️ It was dreamy as fuck!

No release date is set for the album yet, but we had good songs written already and decided to hit the studio. We love working with Joona Hassinen so we went to his new studio in the Swedish forests. The mixing and mastering will be done by Karl-Daniel Lidén since we are amazed with what he did on the Greenleaf, Dozer, Lowrider albums (among others).

We will soon publish more live dates for the winter and spring, and a previously recorded single will be released in February.
