Cranium  


Judging from song titles such as "Dentist Or Death" and "Pestilential Penis", stage names such as Grave Raper and Chainsaw Demon, and three albums all with "Speed Metal" in the title, it's a safe bet that this band doesn't take anything very seriously. Speed metal is very much the order of the day here, specifically ultra-speedy raw thrash along the lines of, say, old Sodom, with an over-the-top shrieking vocalist wailing away about lawnmowers and butchers and who knows what else. It's good for a laugh, and there actually are some decent riffs every so often, but it's all quite samey and after a while the novelty wears thin. Speed metal purists might find these guys entertaining, if nothing else.
