ACRANIA
"TOTALITARIAN DYSTOPIA"
UNIQUE LEADER RECORDS

ACRANIA is a London five piece Death Metal and Deathcore band that during their
short reign managed to leave an impression on the Metal music scene. The band was
named after a rare congenital disorder that targets the human foetus. Inside the cranial
vault the flat bones are completely or partially gone, interesting choice for a band name!
With the lyrical themes being politics, and social criticisms, the bands style was
considered to be called "Politicore". When they formed in 2012 they released a split
album the same year called "GALACTIC INFECTION".
ACRANIA with the other
band being
BLUE WAFFLE. In 2013 they put out an EP "THE BEGINNING OF THE
END". Then the band signed on to one of best record labels around,
UNIQUE LEADER
RECORDS
and they released "TOTALITARIAN DYSTOPIA" which was their first
full length album release in 2014. With Deathcore bands sounding some what the same
you got a select few Deathcore bands that are borderline Death Metal (that's what
ACRANIA falls under). This album was their greatest accomplishment, unfortunately
the band wouldn't last very long after that signing on to a great label and releasing this
incredible album. In the summer of 2015
ACRANIA disbanded. The band sounded like
SUICIDE SILENCE, IMPENDING DOOM and THE ACACIA STRAIN.
