LISTEN TO SPLIT CRANIUM’S D-BEAT/CRUST/PUNK MASTERPIECE ‘I’M THE DEVIL AND I’M OK’

Six years since their self-titled debut, the trans-Atlantic project Split Cranium have returned with their sophomore album I’m The Devil and I’m OK. Guitarist/vocalist Aaron Turner (SUMAC, Old Man Gloom) and guitarist Jussi Lehtisalo (from legendary Finnish shapeshifters Circle) are joined by Faith Coloccia (keyboards/vocals – Mamiffer, Mara), Nate Newton (bass – Converge, Doomriders) and Tomi Leppänen (drums – Circle, K-X-P) making I’m The Devil and I’m OK simultaneously more sonically rounded and more visceral and vicious than the band’s debut album. “We wanted to make a record that was less straightforward than the first one,” Turner says. “Jussi loves melody and I love dissonance and noise, so that is probably the healthy creative contrast that made this record what it is.”
