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.”

Following up the sonic blitzkrieg of their first single “Evil Hands,” the crust/metal/punk project has dropped a video for the vitriolic d-beat scourge “Ingurgitated Liquids.” Watch the video in full via Metal Sucks today (or directly on YouTube).
