Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
We're the Death Metal band from Pamulang, Tangerang, Indonesia. You can call us CS. We was born on may 2009 to slam and blast with this brutality project. This brutality project formed by Hendri Septriadi (Guttural / Growl), Putro Tangkilisan (Guitarist), Adrian Devara (Guitarist), Yudha Leonardi (Bassist), and Abraham Simatupang (Blast Beat / Battery).
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Our music style is Death Metal which contains guttural vocal, shred, and blast beats. We mixed all of that with themes about God and religion. We have some bands who influenced our music. But, we just like them because our music is ours that means our music doesn't sound like their music. They are Necrophagist, Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Pathology, and Nile.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
I think our music is good for a metalhead. We promise that a metalhead will never be bored with our music every a metalhead hears our music. And we always serve our music in high quality, so if a metalhead buy our demos/albums, a metalhead can hear everything that we mean in our music clearly.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We've released split CD with Goregasmatron from Philippines on 1st September 2010. But, our single, 'Konspirasi Monotheisme' ever released on 'Metal Asia compilation' and 'Benefit for Sinabung' as the compilation. The public/media like our music, they think our music is one of the brutality stuffs that they ever get.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Of course! We play live as well in our country, Indonesia. Our live activity is busy when we're free to spend our time for this activity. We like to play live at my homeland, Pamulang because in here, the crowds are very brutal. I hope the readers can see live this situation. Maybe, you can search our live performance's video at youtube.com and you just type 'Cranial Schism'.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Some of them who live in Indonesia or the other sides of this world know us. I think they like our music and they think that they can enjoy our music although some of our songs, we used Indonesian as our country's language. But, in the other side, some of them like our live performance.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We've planned to release split CD entitled 'Diarrhetic Feces v.s. Cranial Schism' with Diarrhetic Feces from London this September. Then, we will release split CD too with Cabracan from Mexico and the other split CD too in 4 way split CD format with Last Vigil from Philippine, Saffar from Indonesia, and Chronology from Indonesia under Mulligore Production. I hope that we can release our first EP this year.
